This is unexpectedly a thai restaurant that doubles up as a Swiss one too. Seeing thai staff we assumed they will have good thai food and went in. The menu has the swiss items lists in the beginning.

One of the owner is thai and she is the main cook. Food was very delicious and service was very prompt. They were very welcoming and served lunch at 3pm. Will highly recommend this place

Meals (it feels like) served straight from microwave. The owner doesn't care about the customers and don't listen to their opinion.

Based on prior reviews, was very skeptical. Came anyways with low expectations and pleasantly surprised. Pro - beef curry #23 is good Con - prices on menu have been scratched out with pen and prices raised Pro - pictures on menu makes ordering easy Tip - chili powder that comes with pad Thai is crazy spicy

A surprising mix indeed. Swiss food is good, with the very Zermatt type of menue (you find in all restaurants about the same kind of food). The Thai food is also very typical. Quality however is rather mixed, service depends much an what waiter you get. Pricing on the medium-high side for Zermatt. Location very central, on a first floor... More

We were in a group of 7 people and all good restaurants were fully booked. The only available place was Helvetia Restaurant. The herb fondue was terrible, and the other foods were below average. I do not recommend to go there.

From reviews we had read in various Zermatt magazines, we were expecting a quaint chalet restaurant with great food. What we got was an upstairs room that was too hot with distinctively average food. The fondue trio was tasteless and seemed to come out of a packet. A big disappointment all round.

We where disapointed at this restaurant. The food was nothing special, and even when we ordered two different dishes they all looked the same and all the vegetables was identical. They service was ok, but nothing more. Compared to the prices and the dinner we had at Alex grill the day before we can not recommend this restaurant.
