thaIt is not a genuine Thai Food. It is adapted to be suitable for people around the world. It does not reflect as Thai master food. For example thai I ordered, rib pork, normally in Thailand, we have more spicy, more ingredient , more tasty such as kamine, galic, peper but this restaurant grilled it with salt only. I was...

I was walking down Bahnhofstrasee in Zermatt and saw a sign for Thai food which was what we felt like having. Three of us ordered Thai food. We have been to Thailand a lot and know what good Thai food tastes like and unfortunately the standard here was very sub-par so a big disappointment. My friend ordered Swiss food and... More

Horrible, frozen and re-heated Thai food. Having lived in Asia, and having an Asian partner, we were looking to enjoy a nice Asian themed meal. Bad choice. You can get better in the Coop and re-heat yourself. The owner was rude to other guests, while the waiter looked on with embarrassment. Stupidly over priced for what as served.

While the food was at best average, the personal was unprofessional and unfriendly and after we had a minor complaint about the food witch was cold, the head of staff was incredibly rude. This kind of service does not belong to an international tourist destination!

I just visited this place with my family as I thought that food would be as good as it used to be. Unfortunately, this expectation was wrong. First of all, today this place suppose to be a Swiss-Thai resturant and... More

This is unexpectedly a thai restaurant that doubles up as a Swiss one too. Seeing thai staff we assumed they will have good thai food and went in. The menu has the swiss items lists in the beginning. But as you flip pages you see a picture menu of a limited list of Thai items. We ordered the spring rolls... More

One of the owner is thai and she is the main cook. Food was very delicious and service was very prompt. They were very welcoming and served lunch at 3pm. Will highly recommend this place

Meals (it feels like) served straight from microwave. The owner doesn't care about the customers and don't listen to their opinion.
