“beautiful home style Thai from beautiful chef.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

it is really cheap food for swiss standard, about $10 you get a dish. usually when you eat out in Lugano it cost you about $20 for a dish. it is a family orientated small business, the chef is from Thailand, she made mostly home style thai food, different from the fancy overpriced thai restaurant. her food is very simple and delicious, i have travelled 3 months in Europe and i miss a real Asian food, that satisfied me very much. guarantee you a proper asian Thai food.

the family were so lovely, friendly and hard working, that made the whole place even more lovely. mind you, it is a small take out place, very limited seating area, it is better to order the food and take it to the Lugano Lake and enjoy it with the view. don't forget the coconut or vanilla home made ice cream, i just can't get enough of them.

i travelled a lot and i know my food (from all genres) i say this is a real nice experience to home style thai food. with so much love in it.
i simply just love them for the food and spirit and will come back here when i am Caslano next.

“Best Tong Yum I have ever had!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This take away place offers an array of authentic Thai food, and one of the best dishes is their Tong Yum soup. It was quite spicy, but it could not stop me from gulping it down. You can tell from the aroma that they use fresh ingredients (and not some canned food from the local supermarket) which really make a difference. Also offers non-spicy dishes which went really well with Thai rice. Should definitely try it out, you will be surprised for finding real Thailand in Switzerland.

too pricey for what you get. it wasn't even nearly as good as described by other reviewers. some meals were hardly eatable.

“very authentic, very tasty Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is probably the only real good and authentic place for Thai food in Southern Switzerland. It's a take-away but you can also eat there. The hot sauces are really HOT and sooo tasty (homemade obviously!). Fresh food from Thailand is brought in every Thursday so everything you eat there is fresh and authentic, cooked by professional Thais. Their homepage is www.cucinathai.ch, where you can find all info - if you speak Italian. Otherwise just go and try it out. If you love exotic food, you will be delighted!
