“Swiss heaven in Bangkok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Amazing fondue in the middle of January in Bangkok! This restaurant is an incredible piece of Switzerland in the middle of Bangkok. I must say that the warm welcome and care throughout dinner from both owners is a never seen before; this was both for our table and for other guests. I warmly recommend this place as a place to take a deep breath of Swiss Food & Air.
We will come back!

“Great fondue, just like Geneva”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The fondue was amazing - just like in Geneva - Gruyere cheese and fresh, but a little crispy bread. Decor is somewhat basic, but sufficient. We will return again.

“fabulous cheese fondue, brings back memories of when we lived in Geneva”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I recently discovered a really nice but well hidden restaurant called the swiss choice. We met there many times with friends to share a fondue or raclette. The place is very cosy, only 6 or 7 table and a big one for friends of the restaurant!

The atmosphere is really great, people are very friendly and the quality of the cheese is exceptional. The owner brings it by plane regularly.

They have good wine also to go with the cheese, the price is very reasonable. We recommend it to anyone who has ever tasted a real swiss fondue and would love to try again

“Amazing Swiss Food in Bangkok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Being Swiss I sometimes miss Swiss cheese and a good Swiss meal. I am so happy I discovered this restaurant in Bangkok. The food is incredible, it's like eating in Switzerland, The place is really nice, like a chalet and the service is just as good. I go there often as prices are reasonable and I can't enough of their food. I would definitely recommend it. Even my thai friends enjoy it!!

“Nice and simple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Found the address on the web... the staff was even surprised I heard about it, so a bit of advertising would not hurt! :-)

Went there for dinner an evening during the week... not difficult to find (pretty much the only light in Suk soi 43), the place looks empty... going through the shop, we climb the stairs and arrive in a small restaurant room with 2-3 staff talking. Quickly installed, the staff speaks correct English (for those who did not get the necessary 5 words of Thai to survive here), we order a plate of cold cuts, raclette and "Swiss pesto" pasta.

The cold cuts arrive, the cured ham was very nice (long time I didn't get tasty cured ham here), the butter was average (Thai or Aussie brand probably) and the bread (baguette) could be better (fresh) but at least it was toasted, so that's ok. I ordered another plate at the end!

The raclette was very good, quantity was the minimum necessary (which is the same in all restaurants serving cheese in Thailand due to the taxes on "luxury products") and tasty with the baby potatoes.
The pesto pasta were ok.

And they have Mövenpick ice cream! :-)

In short: nice staff, nice food, decent prices, I will go back!

PS: if you don't like cheese, think twice! but if you go, you may start to like it ;-)
