One of the better Thais in Zurich

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... read 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

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

We live nearby and visit Five Spice regularly - I have tried several of the dishes and never been disappointed. The pricing is very reasonable for Zurich and the service is great - all of the staff are really attentive. I would recommend both the red curry with pineapple and the stir fried chicken with cashew nuts as being particularly... More

Food Very tasty Thai food. Lots of choices on the menu. Their specialties are the Five Spice duck and the Chiang Mai Khao Soi. The food is authentic and the dishes with three chillis are very spicy. I've been able to try the Khao Soi, Pad Thai, Pad Khing and Duck Sate, which were all very yummy and I'm looking... More

Open on Sundays, which is a rarity in Zurich. Although a bit nondescript from the street, the interior is quite elegantly decorated and nice and cozy. My friend and I ordered from the house specialities menu to get something special. He really liked his Ped Pad Prig Khing (crispy fried slices of duck in Thai red curry sauce). Although it... More
