Lily's is a sure bet, whether it's takeout, delivery or sit-down. With a distinctly relaxed atmosphere, and an excellent variety of Asian food (Mostly of the Thai persuasion but with some South Asian and nearly-Chinese thrown in for good measure), this place has generous and very good portions, fast delivery, reasonable prices (for the quantity), and a cool tiffin delivery...

this place is often packed at lunch time. they serve relatively tasty asian fare, mostly thai style, sort of pan asian i suppose. being from new york, i find it very very difficult to get good asian in zurich. lily's is one of the better place, which isn't saying much, but ok. service was rather slow, as you would expect...

Don't be anxious to visit this very good Pan-Asian Resto, just because it is located in the red light district of Zurich. It is safe! Been here several times for lunch and dinner and oftentimes, I have had to wait at least five minutes for a vacant seat. Since the place is furnished with long tables and benches, nobody is... More

Food is amazing, and well served, ie you are not hungry when going out. ;o) Woks are fantastic, vegetables very fresh, and service well done. Definitely a place to visit and where to meet, when visting this beautiful town of Zürich.

Very good menu selection and for Zurich reasonably priced. Our simple lunch of two appetizers, a sake and mineral water.approached $50, but that is only a reflection of our currency's deteriorating buying power. The atmosphere is modern slick and the service prompt and friendly.

It has areally nice enviroment and the food it taste like real thai food served always with great presentation and a very good quality-price relation. The quantities are very nice, with a small starter and a main dish you might have troubles to finish all the food. I would recommend to try the red thai curry or the lammcurry if... More

I've tried to like this place, I swear I tried. I cannot say the food is bad, because it's not. Some of the currys are actually enjoyable, even though out of maybe 10 dishes I've tried I've only liked a couple. It's just the whole idea of dealing with unfriendly-to-rude-waiters-in-a-hurry, sitting on uncomfortable benches and being in generally treated like... More

I don't know what happened but this time I just didn't like the food... I ordered pad thai as usual and I couldn't eat half of it, it wasnt good at all, I guess that's why they're looking for an asia cook..

This was my last attempt with Thai food. Could not eat my food so gave to a friend. Know some people who love the food, but it is simply not for me at all. The place is quite crowded too, needed to wait.

Lily's is one of those places which has nothing specific to draw your attention. It is in a rather 'eh' section of town, so I wouldn't go at night, but lunch there is always fun! There is a great selection of food and everything I've had has been great.
