Why expensive: one of the most expensive locations in Geneva: not far from the banks and law firms, right in the town centre, where rental is most expensive. Staff is numerous, usually 4 persons for the terrace and the 2 stories restaurant. At least 4 in the kitchen as well. My suggestion would be to avoid two average Thai restaurants and consider this as a treat... Or cook it at home.

Food is really good, inventive, all home made. They have basic dishes but also have a part of the menu adapted to summer/winter.

I recommend the spicy papaya salad (som tam).

Service is pro, efficient, not overly invasive and warm.

We paid 120 swiss francs total (2 persons), we shared a som tam salad and got the "discovery dish" (2 persons minimum) which consists of 2 summer rolls, 2 spring rolls, 2 satay chicken kebabs and 2 shrimps steamed ravioli per person. All really good.
Drinks: try their "thai iced tea", a gem.

When this place opened, it was quite good, a bit overpriced, but given its location one can understand why it was a bit more expensive than your classic thai.

My last lunch in this place was awful. The room had close to no ventilation system, the smell on the clothes after having spent one hour there was disgusting... On top of that, you had bad smell coming from the bathroom and you just want to run away!

The food was really mediocre. Had a red curry chicken, which was actually more like a curry soup with very few chicken pieces. CHF40 for 3 small pieces of chicken is a shame!

Seriously, I won't go back there anymore unless forced to.

I went with family ( wife +2 kids) on Saturday at lunch time.
Great food and service. We took the Saturday lunch menu and it was really good quality, not a lot of food but enough for a lunch (not OK if youàre really hungry). The quality was really good, and the service perfect.
They were really attentive with the kids, and prepared what we asked for them (which is something not all the restaurants in Geneva do).
defenetely will return.

The atmosphere in this place was great and the service was quite good also. The waiters are multi-lingual. I got the noodles with broccoli and was in heaven. It cost around 20 euros which is comprable to other gevena restaurants. McDonalds meal is 15 eros here and for 5 euro more this restaurant is not in the same league as Mc D's.

Was average at best. If paying 40$ for thai noodles is acceptable then this is your place... interior was small but nice.
