“Reasonable Priced? - Yes - for Zurich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Looking for Zurich/Asian fast? This is an excellent option. As befits an alpine restaurant, the red curry had great flavors, but way more meat and fewer vegetables then we are used to experiencing in the US. The flavors were good, the rice was "correct" and the place was clean. Two people ate for under 75 euro, which is hard to do in Zurich unless you are eating a pretzel bread sandwich from a street stand. Oh, we followed the google map directions from our hotel, which lead us up Langstrasse on the south side of the train station, which made my wife a bit uncomfortable. Langstrasse is Zurich's red light district, and we walked through at dusk, just as all the talent was hitting the street. It would have been better if it was totally dark, yikes!

Very good asian food (we tried thai) - family with kids (7 and 9 years old). There is a spice level for everybody. Friendly staff, fast service, good prices, weekly menus (this week it was indian). Impressive tea selection. we will come again.

“High expectations well met”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went with English colleague the other night - he'd never been and was VERY impressed.
Usually it's a suspicious sign when a menu offers Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese and Indian - but our dishes were really good.
Excellent Kimchi.
Excellent (if pricey) tea selection.
Very busy place in hip area.

“Trendy asian restaurant in Zurich's Kreis 5”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

In my opinion, some of the best and best value restaurants in Zurich are clustered around this area.

It's hard to go wrong with Lily's. The food is very tasty and good value for money (for Zurich, anyway). They offer a good variety of South and East asian dishes served in a unique style.

The main downside is that it's so popular you often have to wait for a seat at peak times.
