College and I went and had a nice meal. Not the cheapest Thai in town, but enjoyed all the same. Found the tables too close together, felt crammed in. There's having an atmosphere and feeling you're on your neighbours lap. Went to go back few weeks later and they were closed for their summer holiday! It's keep tourist time!! Each... More

The dinner was pleasant with one surprise to note. We ask for the starter to be spicy and it was REALLY spicy, even for a thai level (I actually never ate a so spicy dish in Thailand). So be careful. The Terrace is nice in sommer and wines are decent. The decoration inside is very nice too. The service is... More

Dear 777777Nic Thank you for taking the time to write a note. Some days in summer are hectic because of the terrace. three degrees warmer and it is quiet in our street. We usually cook with 80 percent of what we consider the spiciness of the food in BKK. But if you order spicy, we think it should be spicy.... More

Husband and I stumbled upon this small restaurant while wandering through the old parts of the city. At noon on a weekday it was already starting to fill up and by 12:30 it was packed! Locals were coming in to fill up plastic containers and taking them back to the office. The buffet is 28 Swiss Francs or you can... More

Fantastic Thai food! The owners were incredibly polite and accommodating, even though we turned up without a reservation on quite a busy evening. The food was beautiful, freshly made and filling. We really look forward to going back again!

The restaurant is one of the more authentic thai place I've visited in Zürich. The food tastes just heavenly and the ambiance is great. A bit small place, so you should almost always reserve a day in advance. The staff is very friendly and extra rice is offered to finish off that curry.

OK, this is Zurich, so you can ignore that spending four times what I spend for Thai food in U.S. left a sour taste in my mouth. Ignoring that, the food was authentic, well made, and beautifully presented. The owner was very hospitable and welcoming. There was a smile on my face until I recalculated the bill into USD.
