Restaurant details
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We decided to try this restaurant due to its good reputation on Tripadvisor, but we were highly disappointed! They offered us a table on 1st floor, where the ambience was nice but the temperature unfortunately far too high (at least 25 degrees, in December). The waiter did not understand one word of English, which is quite surprising in a restaurant located in Zurich downtown. We ordered one vegetarian Pad Thai and one vegetarian Red Curry. Waiting for our meals, we noticed through the kitchen's door that they make a massive use of microwave... No comment! I asked some lime for the Pad Thai, but it was not available. They finally served a basic Pad Thai with no personality, but the worst surprise was the Red Curry: a white-coloured slipslop with very mediocre flavor, too fluid consistency, and filled with Western vegetables (carrots, broccoli) instead of authentic Thai vegs. That was not authentic red curry!!

This place serves very expensive food (be careful, fish dishes cost approx 35-40 CHF!!) and delivers no quality at all! I really advise against this place, especially when you can find in town more honest and alternatives for Thai/Vietnamese food (Asiaway above all, but also Ah-Hua).
