Tasty and Tasteful

You can make reservations here, so if you come during rushhour, do expect to stand in line to wait. Which is definitely worth it because Lily's focuses on simple, tasty food - with enough variety. The classic are the curries, noodles and soups. But pretty much everything is good. The portions are... read more

I can see that this place has a lot of good reviews but for people who've had good Thai food, this place is really nothing great. Had the red curry and it was commercially acceptable but nothing special. Also, you have to pay extra for rice?! Wow. The service wasn't great - they were more concerned about getting you out...

Nice and tasty cuisine. The service is correct (no more no less). The (uncomfortable) bench style of eating all together is not really my thing

If you are a "conoisseur" and lover of asian kitchen, Lily's is the place for you. Thai and other asian specialties, kept simple but complete. You can also order and bring home the food. Otherwise you will share a long table with other people, good for socializing. Lily's never let you down.

I'm Asian and to be absolutely honest this is not any better than the food my Asian friends or I usually cook at home. People with not a lot of interaction with Asian cuisine can find this delicious but if you are someone who grows up in Asia or has a lot of interaction with Asian cuisine my advice is... More

I never liked Thai Food. Until Lily's. That's the best I can say about it. I love love love the food. It's also great being able to get it at home when you're just too lazy to go out. It comes in the cutest takeaway lunchbox ever. The Pad Thai Gung is just a dream.

went there after a long gap. food great, portions could be considerably larger (at least the currys), and service could be quicker. also I do mind if more and more people keep getting seated next to me, especially at the prices asked for the meal. one specific thing I find really annoying is how they do not manage to serve...

We stumbled across this place on our first night in Zurich. Keen for a change from Swiss fare we ordered a red curry and pad thai gai. Both were excellent: fresh and tasty, and more than comparable to the great Asian food we enjoy back home in Melbourne. Service was quick and friendly and it was great fun watching the... More
