Good food& friendly staff

Super good and quick serving at lunch time. Ideal for business. Food is authentic and there is always some variation in the lunch specials.

Five Spice is a good Thai restaurant but somehow it has few things missing to make it a good Thai restaurant. Food, service and ambience all seem to be average, not impressive. Good thing is that prices are cheap in comparison to what you get

There are countless Thai restaurants in Zurich so competition for food excellence is high. We were recommended this restaurant by an online forum so we decided to check it out. I am a big fan of Thai cuisine and have eaten at Thai restaurants all around the world, including in Thailand. Therefore my expectations are always a bit higher than... More

Nice looking place not too fancy but not to laid back either. Food great. Average Zurich prices but good sized portions means you won't be let down and are getting value for money. We were 3 ordered 2 mains and a starter and still food left over. Staff were very good. Will be coming back to try more of the... More

Having been to Thailand several times and being in love with the food, I have been disappointed by Thai restaurants in Zurich before, but this one was actually quite nice. For every main dish, you can pick the meat/vegetable they shoudl prepare the food with (duck, beef, chicken), which we liked. The portfions were reasonably large and had lots of... More

I went with a friend for dinner without reservation. Service was fast and friendly but we were warned that they were very busy and that we would have to wait a bit for the main course. The food was delicious, I especially liked the Ped Pad Prig Khing (roasted duck in red curry sauce with thai spices, very spicy). For... More

We went for the first time to the five spice and are very positive. Typical Thai-restaurant, great (and if you like) spicy food, friendly staff, good atmosphere. We had the five spice special for starter followed by panaeng gai and pad thai gai, both spicy. absolutely delicious! not a huge choice of desserts, but thailand is not very famous for... More

One of my favorite places in the Zurich. I have been here many times and it was always good. In fact it's almost like it gets better every time.

I have been to this restaurant twice. The first time I had the fried shrimp and tom yum soup starters. The shrimp is so thin, you taste the panko breading instead. The tom yum was not authentic and surprisingly a very clear broth. There were three huge shrimp in it and that was really good! If you don't like coriander,... More
