We had an excellent meal at Ban Song Thai over the New Year period. The food is excellent and the service is prompt yet unobtrusive. The Tom Yam Kung and Pad Thai are both highly reccommended. The only criticism we have is that the tables are really too close together. This meant that we heard every word of our neighbour's... More

I made a reservation at this restaurant for a casual business dinner for a group of 6. The staff were very friendly the whole evening. The atmosphere was also great, the restaurant was full so reservations are required. The food was good, tasty, but I wouldn't say amazing. It came out relatively quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and some said... More

Very friendly staff, excellent service, good food. Place is always full, so book ahead. Not "standard" Thai food; cuisine leans toward Indian influence. Good value.

Having read all the good reviews, my friends and I decided to give this restaurant a try. We went for an evening meal ( a la carte, not buffet). The food was very average. The portions were extremely small, definitely not worth the price tag. We paid around 40 CHF for a tiny dish of beef. There are better Thai... More

We have been there for a Friday evening meal with my daughters. The food is good and the portion quite large. Presentation of the food is average and taste ok, but not great. Service corteous and attentive. Ensure you ask the right spice level (especially if you want hotter food). Right price for Zurich (we spent 55 chf per person... More

We had such a nice meal here last week with friends. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, it was very busy (inside and out) - so worth booking a table. The service was fantastic, for which I am very grateful in Zurich! The staff speak fluent English, should you require it. The food was delicious and easily comparable to local... More

This is my favorite Thai restaurant in Zurich with authentic food, nice location, cosy atmosphere and good service. The waitress always remembers our favorite dishes and is extremely friendly. We normally opt for curries, but once we tried the set menu with a group of friends and it was excellent too. Resevation is needed as the place is always full.

Visited this restaurant with four work colleagues. No problems not having a reservation and the staff were quite lively and entertaining. Menu was reasonably extensive. I was more than a little disappointed with the Thai fish cakes. These definitely did not taste anything like the fish cakes I have had in many Thai restaurants. The rest of the food was... More
