not worth going to

Food, service and ambiance can be considered "ok", but many asian fast food restaurants are decidedly better. The food was on the dry side, and generally a bit boring. Not worth going to.

We went there as the place has a nice terrace. The food is average, drinks were warm and the service was the worst I have even seen. Two hours wait, no bill and very, very rude waiters. Not worth it, there are much better options

We keep returning to this place whenever in Lörrach. It pleasantly surprises us with its original north east Thai cuisine. We strongly recommend to try the following 3 dishes: yam wun sen, som tam and duck with tamarind.

I went to that Thai restaurant already twice and it was definitively the best Thai restaurant I ever went to in Europe. The food is really original and spicy like in Thailand and the owner's mother even cooked especially Homok Talay for me. I've also got excellent Tom Kha Goong (Spicy Coconut Milk Soup with Shrimps), Spicy Beef and one... More

after reading the numerous reviews complaining about the service, we showed up early, at 11:45 - there were already 3 tables with expectant diners. Since I don't really want to re-live the events the waitress came to the table 2 hours later and stated how much we must pay (no bill!). Food could have been 5 star had it been... More

Food was good and tasty, prices acceptable. Waiters a little distant even cold. Setting (roof top terrace) has a peculiar feel to it.

The best Tom Yam and Tom Ka I've had outside of Thailand, and I was in Thailand last week. Definitely to be recommended if you are searching for an authentic Thai soup in this region.

This thai restaurant is in the Marktplatz area of Lorrach, easy to find and a good menu of affordable lunch options. The service was excellent and they were very understanding of us having several children who were noisy and messy. The only downside is the restaurant is up 2 flights of steps with no lift, so hard to take a... More

This restaurant is very centrally located close to the marktplatz of Lörrach. It has a great terrace for summertime. The food is unfortunately not authentic Thai and is not really good. If you ever have tasted really Thai cuisine you will be quite dissapointed by the Thai curries here. I recommend this place to go for a drink in summer... More
