It's definitely well located for a after or pre movie snack or dinner or pre-post parting. I personally didn't find the quality of the sushi very nice despite the richness in quantity and size of the bites almost exaggerated. The atmosphere is cozy for couples but also for groups of friends and family. I would suggest to focus on the... More

Do not take the crispy beef (boeuf croustillant) or the duck! Disgusting pieces of beef and the duck had a very strong taste of frozen... It's a pity because the place is nice and central and the service very helpful. We won't go back

Right in Flon, behind Pathe cinemas, so good option to dine after watching a movie or before going clubbing. I had chicken noodles, they were really good! Service was good as well, and even they were closing almost when we got there, they did not rush us. No cheap though.

The sushis are quite good, but the "hot" food is quite expensive - the price is without rice, and a simply white rice is like 8.- !

we ordered two Chicken dishes and they both had the same sauce but mine had cashews in addition. Both fried rice and basil rice are equally bad. Lady waitress (local??) was very rude to us when we were wanted to pay with change as we were leaving that day from Swiss. Where as Thai waiter was good and he wanted... More

It is one of our three favorite lunch restaurants. We go at least once a week. There's always something interesting on the menu. The meal is served on large wooded trays with a variety of accompanying dishes, salad and desert. Service is friendly, efficient and caring. For evening meals one can eat more elaborately from a menu. Everything is excellent.

I visited this restaurant several times on the past and one of the reasons was due to the fact they were accepting Ticket Restaurants. Yesterday, although they still have the stick on the door with the logo they don't accept those tickets anymore. When we asked the manager why in that case they still advertise like they do, she was... More

Little Thai /Japanese restaurant with friendly staff and nice atmosphere and decorations. Sounds not really popular on Thursday night and sushi bar with its boats was empty. Food is good but not really tasty and spicy, unfortunately an other average European adapted Asian food

Nicely located next to the movie Theater, the decoration is nice, the staff very friendly and the food of good quality, while rather expensive especially for the side dishes. Overall good.

That's one of the best Thai restaurants in Lausanne to my opinion. Very spacious, with beautifu inside decorations and nice traditional music. You can have Thai dishes or sushi, both choices are good. Meat-lovers should absolutely try beef on a hot pan. Best spot before going to cinema Pathe!
