Very good choice of meals cooked like in Thailand. You can choose how spicy. Service very friendly - we had the pleasure to be served by Apple - lovely.

This is a nice little Thai restaurant. We didn't have a reservation but were still able to get a table for 2 on a Saturday night, despite the restaurant being busy. The food was very good. And the service super friendly. But be careful when...asking for spicy: My dish came out very spicy.More

Went for dinner with couple of friends and as usual was delighted with the food and the service. Delicious authentic Thai cuisine with a spread of dishes to choose to suit every taste from the mild European to the more adventurous palate. The decor is...very tasteful and inviting. A definite recommendation. It is a hidden jewel in the middle of Zurich. A must try.More

We had a very nice dinner with colleagues from work. We have been 10 people and everyone was happy with the food and the friendly service. We always got a smile and the plate of Thai tapas quickly emptied and the refill came quick after...our order. The main dishes have been great and did not leave space for a dessert.More

Popped in for a quick bite as we were going to watch a movie nearby. Food was great and very tasty! Service was extremely friendly and welcoming, which makes a huge difference in ZH! Will be back.

Very friendly and helpful staff present you with lashings of great Thai food, from tasty curries served in a coconut shell to delicious noodles straight from the wok. The place is 5 minutes from Selnau station and, handily, 2 minutes from the Metropol cinema. So...a perfect spot to fill up at before seeing the latest blockbuster. Enjoy!More

Authentic Thai dishes, arranged with a passion for food and design. Not the typical take away, but rather a place to relax with friends and have a good time eating and drinking. Although the place is rather small it doesn't feel uncomfortable. The staff is...friendly and are greeting every customer in Thai. They speak both German and English.More

Since years i considered the Bang Thai as the best thai palce in Zürich. But now, I've a new faovrite. Probably the best Phad Thai I ever had in Zürich. Also very nice red curry with beef and fresh pineapple. The fried rice was not...much, but I should have rememberred while ordering, that my favorites are fried rices from China oder Malaysia and not Thailand. Mixed starters (from two persons upward) where also fantastic. Go there if you wanna find a touch of Thailand in Zürich (except for the interior).More
