Once you enter this restaurant you will experiment the secrets of the Asian/Thai culture. Incredible atmosphere, excellent customer service, unique Thai flavor. I was really impressed by this place. Do not miss this experience!

“Well crafted Thai food, but at "special occasion" prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2010

We went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Thai Garden served some of the best Thai food I have tasted, with the individual flavours of the herbs & spices identifiable, yet extremely well balanced. Very refined atmosphere, if a little too dark, and generally attentive service.

Some points to note:

1) Please do not confuse this restaurant with the asian brasserie in the same building which overlooks the street - they are different establishments. Entry to Thai Garden from street level is via a deceptively unassuming door at the right-hand side of the building (or presumably through the hotel itself). The restaurant is mostly in the basement.

2) Dishes are rated in spiciness from '*' to '***' on the menu. Being wary of anything too spicy, we ordered two '**' dishes, but compared to many Thai restaurants we have been to, this level of spiciness was quite tame. If we were to go again we would definitely try at least one '***' dish.

3) As with so many experiences in Switzerland, try not to think too hard about the real cost - prices are far more eyewatering than the spiciness of the (albeit excellent) food! Unfortunately we could see no menu outside, so it was difficult to establish prices before going in.

Recommended, but only for a special occasion.

“Thai a la wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2010

This is a gorgeous Thai place, high end. The food we had was flawless, the place was booked solid, this may be the reason why we had to wait for a while for the service. This place is very inviting to stay, very hospitable, and I can especially recommend Tom Kha Ghai (my personal favourite Thai Dish). This place is particularly good for special occasions.

Great Atmosphere, feels like being on vacation in Thailand for a couple of hours. Great food and it's worth the money.
