Always popular and booked out for a good reason, - the kitchen delivers authentic Thai curries and other dishes, and friendly, casual service as well. Nothing to complain about.

My wife, nephew and I stumbled on this gem. First thing is that they could safely feed my wife gluten free. She had Celiac Disease and had to eat a strict GF diet. Second, the food was delicious. Some of the best curry I have had. My wife had Pad Thai and raved about it. Well worth looking for this... More

Thanks Ms. Muller for serving up the absolute best of Thai food. The key to Thai food is the very freshest of ingredients, the right amount of spices, and the quality of sauces- especially the curries. Well , my wife and I can say that all of the qualifications were admirably met tonight! We had a great papaya salad ;... More

I am Thai and I like to Thai restaurants when traveling. Of all the countries, Ban Song Thai was a gem. The food was authentic and high in quality. We ordered jungle curry, som sum, yum nuer (beef salad), and tom yum going (hot and sour soup with galangal, and kefir lime leaves). The jungle curry was the best I've... More

visited on a rainy night (no reservations) accepted our 'walk in; small team managing restaurant - relatively efficient - great food - service - somewhat lacking in 'engagement'

This little hidden gem in the heart of Zurich Central nestles a wonderfully authentic Thai restaurant. Food freshly prepped to order is the key with friendly service which is efficient but not brusque! Portions are generous, well priced and good value. Booking is a must - you really need to check it out! I will be back for more!

A small restaurant with self service buffet where the customer itself weights the plate. Freedom to choose and nobody's controlling what you chose. The buffet is good signalised so you know what you are eating. At lunch time a good option. The owners are around to guarantee the quality. Liked it very much.

Located in a nice district of Zürich, this restaurant won't be the cheapest Asian restaurant around but the food is cooked properly and you do have a good meal. I was actually surprised to see such a good-quality lunch buffet (unfortunately you cannot order for lunch, so you have to go for the buffet). The interior of the restaurant is... More
