We are a group of friends with a child for lunch. We had the worst dining experience because of the horrible and disrespectful service from the staff. It all started with our pram that they insisted we leave it outside of the restaurant but I refused because I could not risk losing it just in case. Probably that's why the... More

Good meal of pad thai, I walked in around 9pm and the place was almost completely full on a Wednesday night, with a mix of locals and what seemed to be business travelers. Good service, good food (it sounds silly, but the chicken in the pad thai was so flavourful... it made me wonder what I had been eating for... More

Good small place, reservation advisable. They can cook really hot if you ask. All service is Thai. Could recommend if you are looking for Asian places.

Saw the recommendation on TripAdvisor and we decided to give it a try since we were craving for Asian food. Went to the restaurant without a booking and we were lucky to get a table as most of the tables were booked. We ordered phad thai, fried beef, red curry chicken n fried mixed vegetables. The portion is just nice... More

This is a place that I always visit when in Zürich. All of the curries are excellent and pairs well with the rosé wine. If you aren't from Zürich/Switzerland, then it's expensive, but relative to Zürich it's reasonable.

Visited by myself on a Tuesday evening as soon as the restaurant opened at 6pm. There were a few people there already. With some kind of attitude, I was offered a table until 7pm (sufficient as I was by myself) and the restaurant filled up amazingly quickly thereafter. I thought I was in for a treat with all of these... More
