ขอขอบคุณ - A taste bud tingling thai food experience

We had been looking for a nice thai restaurant that ticked all the boxes since we moved to Zurich from Amsterdam and Ban Song Thai was the one. We booked in advance, but as we were so hungry and dreaming of curry we turned up 2 hours early. We were greeted with smiles into a cozy little environment... read more

Food: was very tasty and delicious; not too spicy (for sure you could get also very spicy things) Small Restaurant - better make a Reservation. Service friendly (but a Little bit slow due to a full restaurant)

I'm quite surprised by the number of excellent reviews as my experience was mediocre at best. We went for the lunchtime buffet as we'd been visiting the Grossmünster which is literally a stones throw away. The place was jammed full of local business people wining and dining but really lacked any atmosphere. The staff were slightly acerbic and left me... More

We came upon Ban Song Thai at lunchtime. At lunch they only have buffet, which I ordinarily don't like-- but we were hungry, so we stayed. I am so glad we did-- it may be the best Thai buffet I have every had. The dishes were kept warm in chafing dishes, not a steam table, so they tasted very fresh.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a romantic dinner at this lovely restaurant. We were assigned a quiet table next to one of the windows. For all those reviewers that complained in the past about the window table near the door: now a glass panel separates this table from the door, effectively turning it into one of the best - most...

Our hotel recommended Ban Song Thai to us during our brief (too brief) stay in Old Zurich. We were thrilled with the freshness and quality of the food, the pleasant atmosphere and friendly service at Ban Song. The owner looked after us with care and spent some time chatting with us. It was a wonderful and welcoming experience for two... More

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant a lot. We enjoyed vegetable spring rolls first. Then we shared both the chicken curry and the pad Thai. Both had very nice flavor. Even though the menu said it was spicy, and the waitress asked if we wanted it spicy, we both would have enjoyed more spice. The service was excellent. I... More

It is always a pleasure to eat here - we usually come about once a month. From the first visit, you are being treated like good guest and get a very welcoming feeling - unfortunately that's not always the case in Zurich. The food es excellent and they are very generous and try everything to make your stay a pleasant... More
