Walked by the shop and saw lots of tripadvisor stickers with good reviews and a Michelin guide on the door. Usually these are signs that the food is of a certain standard, but this is definitely one of those exceptions. The people who have reviewed this as excellent food have never had proper Thai food. We ordered 1) Som Tam... More

The food is really good and authenthic. The place is not a restaurant but rather a diner or canteen with good service. The prices are outrageous given the fact that you are sharing the table with strangers in the tiny place seving simple food. But it is Switzerland , everything is expensive here.

This restaurant is little and gets busy so book ahead. The staff were friendly and attentive. The mixed starter was lovely. Had curries for main which were rather average, had much better Thai food in the uk. Very expensive, as most places in Zurich!!

Great lunchbuffet (all you can eat) or Take Away (that's what I get weekly). Food is without Monosodium / Glutamate etc. Food is super delicious. Unlike lot's of rather boring Thai places in the city. It's one of the little one besides Chiang Mai next to Zurich Mainstation that I can truly recommend. Wouldn't eat there week in week out...

The food is delicious, no doubts. And of course, it is expensive, in my opinion it is too expensive for what you get. The portions are good, so you won't be hungry afterwards. Stuff is really friendly and the service quick. Dont' forget to book your table in advance, especially in the evening this place is really crowded, waiting hours... More

Thai food at its best, and this for reaonable money. Sutuated in a nice little alley in downtown Zurich, this small but fine place ist where you want to go if you long for Thai food. Lunch is very reasonably priced, you get to pick your own choice. Evenings are a bit more expensive, but it is all worth it.... More
