“Tasty Thai food in Lausanne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Thai wife, European husband run this place and the 'head chef' in the kitchen is Thai. Portrait of the King in the highest and most prominent spot in the restaurant.
Quality ingredients, not too greasy and lots of flavor. The cuisine is spicy but to European levels- so you'll have to ask to have the dishes 'adjusted' to more authentic levels.
Service is good and I find this a great place to have lunch with customers. Decor is a bit faded and could do with a 'refresh' but this remains a solid Thai reference in Lausanne.

“Time to update”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012 via mobile

This small restaurant is hidden in a residential area of Lausanne. The extensive menu will not satisfate vegetarians, but if you eat meat and fish there is plenty to choose from. There are some specialties besides the Thai standards such as curries and saté. The interior of the restaurant would benefit from an update and prices are on the high side for this type of establishment.

“Good Thai fare in a pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011 via mobile

We enjoyed this one but only have Le Jardin Thai to compare it to so far in Lausanne. Salad's didn't feel quite as fresh or varied but the curries were great and i'd say it's a little cheaper too. Recommended!

“Excellent Neigbourhood Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

My friends will probably kill me for posting this restaurant! Yet, I think I owe my fellow travellers this recommendation and review.

This is a family-run and operated Thai restaurant off a quiet street in Lausanne. It was a much needed and refreshing change to my frequent, heavy, and delicious Swiss meals.

The restaurant has a warm and friendly atmosphere. It’s a simple, no-nonsense, good food sort of place. Menus include all the delicious Thai classics with some minor Swiss / local additions. They have an equally simple and delicious wine menu.

Specifically, I can overwhelmingly recommend the Thai spicy beef Carpaccio starter. I could drink gallons of the spicy sauce accompanying it alone. Equally delicious was the classic Papaya Salad (spicy/sour) and Fishcake starters.

For mains we enjoyed a classic Pad Thai and an amazing Spicy Basil Beef stir fry. For dessert we had a selection of desserts and recommend the coconut specialty.

Highly recommended for Thai and as an alternative for an “off-night” from heavy beef and cream sauce dishes.

The service was quick, friendly, and attentive. All food tasted freshly sourced and prepared.

Menus available in English.
