“Felt like have eaten a kilo of butter”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

I read the raving reviews and was wondering if I just had bad luck, but this was the most terrible curry i've ever eaten. I didn't order the food together with the drink, and as I said I need some time to decide, the waitress turned around saying "pfff". As we asked her which wine she would recommend she was annoyed and said whatever is on the list. I ordered Massaman Curry with tofu. Tofu was over-fried and was squeezing like little piece of gum as i took the first bite, curry had no taste at al ( tasted like old butter). No spices, no fresh ingrediants (thai aubergine, galgang, thai basilicum or anything a like), the only vegetable in the curry you can find was potato. I asked the waitress to bring me something else as I couldn't eat it, she offered to bring me some vegetables, which was nice of her. but what she brought was no vegetable only chunks of potato. Same like in the curry I had.
My partner has an indian curry with duck. duck was overcooked and the meal had no taste at all. Unfortunately I was expecting nice fresh food and didn't realise this place is a cheap chain with rather steep prices for the quality they offer (tofu has been fried a while ago, no fresh ingredients).
If you are looking for authentic fresh good asian food avoid this place.

“A good thai restaurant”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

The food is good, although most of the dishes are quite salty.
Price is really fair for Switzerland - around 25 CHF per person including starter, main course and drinks.
Location - right in front of the station - is really convenient.
The atmosphere is nice.

To sum up, a good deal if you want asian food in St. Gallen!
