Generous portions, good ambiance, nice staff, — no reservations, live queuing, and pretty crowded. Worth visiting.

This is a popular place at Langstrasse and often times pretty packed. As others have mentioned you share a long table with strangers, which does not bother me for lunch but is definitely not an option for a nice dinner. The food is pretty average I find.

I love this place and always try to eat there once when I am in Zurich. Delicious thai cuisine, friendly informal atmosphere. Don't expect too much from the service but they are basically efficient and cordial.

I had an amazing green thai curry at Lily's, but as a matter of fact everything on the menu sounded delicious. My friend had pad thai and that was super yummy too. The service was fast and the venue is spotless. Prices are average for Zurich. Highly recommended.

We went there after a few drinks nearby to grab something to eat. It was very crowded but we managed to get the last two seats. Afterwards the queue began to form and people were waiting for a seat. While the atmosphere if the restaurant was very loud and the seating options are not that comfortable for longer seatings (probably... More

I was at this place for lunch. I had chicken fried rice 🍚🍚 which was tasty. 😊😋 The waiters are quick and ok. The Restaurant was very busy and loud. It is fine if you are in hurry, want to eat and leave 😉 Can recommend it 👍🏻

Great food, served quickly. Husband and I shared tempura veg then I had shrimp fried rice while he had vegetarian yellow curry. Tempura was excellent and the shrimp were huge - four large shrimp/ king prawns in a large portion of the rice dish. Tasty dishes at reasonable prices. Good drinks selection too. The area the restaurant is in is... More
