We found this restaurant just before we were due to leave Zurich in 2014, and kicked ourselves that we hadn't found it earlier so for our second visit to Zurich this year, we made a beeline for the Ban Song Thai. It gets very busy, so it's best to book in advance. As per my previous review, the food is... More

Cozy restaurant with several outdoor tables. Prices in line with Zurich expectations. Despite crowd, kitchen was turning out delicate, well prepared dishes with high quality ingredients. Mostly locals who recognize a good thing. Deducted a star for the understaffing, visit would have been better with more attentive service, all servers were run off their feet, adding staff for busy, beautiful... More

Our group of 7 showed up without any reservation and were served promptly and well. All appetizers and meals were fantastic. Amount of spice was true to stated amount. Staff had a great sense of houmor. Highly recommended!

In Zurich on business and dining late, I had the chicken and cashew nuts. It was really delicious and very authentic. The serving staff were very nice. Will definitely try and go back.

Very nice meal. Quick. Nice and funny waitresses. People must know it's good because there was no free place after 7PM without reservation.

Once again my friend and i decided to visit our favourite Thai Restaurant in Zurich. As lovers of Thai cuisine this is still by far the best Thai Restaurant in Zurich.

Dear BA002. Thank you very much taking the time for this kind review! We enjoy so much, when people can appreciate the quality of our ingredients and dishes and realize, when a peace of meat is hand cut. Or a shrimp is not from a farm, but sustainable mangrove catch. Hope to see you again soon! Best regards from Nu.... More

First time back at this place in years. It has been around 20+ of them, but our group, all fans from previous visits was very disappointed. Very rude dragon lady of a Maitre D' whose English and German were both poor. Just not welcoming. Quite a limited menu. Food quality so, so. Service all round poor.

Concerning our "limited Menu": We have since 20 years the policy of a rather limited variety – but for that reason fresh and homemade.... More

This may be some of the best Thai food we've ever sampled! It was flavorful, had an excellent presentation and came out quickly. The host and staff were very friendly and the restaurant had a great atmosphere about it. They also had outdoor seating, which we were able to get a table at. We had wine, spring rolls, a side...
