Saw the recommendation on TripAdvisor and we decided to give it a try since we were craving for Asian food. Went to the restaurant without a booking and we were lucky to get a table as most of the tables were booked. We ordered phad thai, fried beef, red curry chicken n fried mixed vegetables. The portion is just nice... More

This is a place that I always visit when in Zürich. All of the curries are excellent and pairs well with the rosé wine. If you aren't from Zürich/Switzerland, then it's expensive, but relative to Zürich it's reasonable.

Visited by myself on a Tuesday evening as soon as the restaurant opened at 6pm. There were a few people there already. With some kind of attitude, I was offered a table until 7pm (sufficient as I was by myself) and the restaurant filled up amazingly quickly thereafter. I thought I was in for a treat with all of these... More

Wandering around the streets of Zurich trying to find a nice restaurant and stumbled across this. They were clearly full but made a place up at the bar for me (I was on my own). Nice touch. The food looked excelled (I was right by the service elevator so could see everything that was brought out), and although I don't... More

We've had a very delicious dinner. Authentic Thai food without any chichi. Friendly service. Can absolutely recommend this tiny restaurant.

Very friendly serving staff. The food wasn't bad, it was fresh but just .... OK, not WOW, if anything a little bland. Restaurant lacks a little atmosphere, feels more like a day time cafe for lunch while shopping, not a special place for a weekend evening meal. If this is the best place in Zürich to eat Thai then it... More

Ban Song Thai is a great Thai restaurant which serves very delicious and authentic food, yet adapted to European taste buds - the food was tasty but rather mild, so for really spicy food lovers there is always an opportunity to ask for extra spices. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The place is always packed, so if you... More

In general I am a Thai food fan so I have been to many Thai restaurants. I am from Toronto so we have some great restaurant choices there but this Thai restaurant is hands down best Thai food ever. Not only food but service, atmosphere and prices(Zurich standard) everything is amazing. A must when visiting Zurich!
