First floor of the Astoria Hotel. Decent atmosphere and pleasant service. Menu seemed limited but enough to please, and the food was well-prepared. Convenient if you're a guest of the hotel but not a dining destination. Plan on a minimum of $50 CHF per person. Better and less expensive alternatives in Old Town just three blocks north.

Food in general is very expensive in Lucerne. The 3 Vietnamese Spring Rolls for 19 CF, were excellent. The Wok-Fried BBQ Chicken for 37 CF was a wet mess. I expected nicely caramelized and flavorful chicken with an Asain BBQ sauce glaze. What I got looked like soup and the chicken had little flavor. Service was good. The cheap paper... More

Food Wise i would say its pretty good overall, the main thing that i would say that is good about eating here is they have an appetizer plate for 2 with a mixed selection which is great to share, although beware of the size as you may not have room left for your main course! Although that did not bother... More

Food is authentic and delicious......and for the price you pay for the food and the setting, I would expect linen napkins, not flimsy paper. Service was excellent Menu is limited, but I tried 3 different items and they were brilliant. I will definitely return Highly recommended

Food is great. Menu slightly limited. Service can be average especially on busy nights. Location is excellent in the center of Lucerne so if you wish to continue your night elsewhere you are within minutes of many other options.

Food was so good we went back two nights later. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Menu is not too large but great variety for either a small meal or a large. Lovely setting and good atmosphere. Very busy so they are doing something right.

Excellent service with nice tom yum soup. Good service and environmental. A bit pricy but worth to have a try. (Remarks: of course it cant be comparable with what you have in thailand, but its relatively good thai food you can find in swiss)

Food was presented very well and good size portions, which was very appreciated after a long day! However, the wait staff would disappear for periods at a time, especially when it came time to pay, which was a little inconvenient.
