I have visited the place twice, with friends who smoke. It is a cool bar with nice cocktails and pleasant music. I only visited the bar, not the restaurant. The restaurant is in a separate area.

A modern restaurant with authentic Thai cuisine, cooked by Thai chefs and served by our friendly staff. One floor above we serve you our tasty thai dishes in our Thai Heaven, where the atmosphere is a little more upscale and private. Next door you may smoke a fine cigar at our Monkey Bar Fumoir, which is newly renovated in a fresh, stylish and cozy style. During summer time, people from Zurich enjoy their cool drinks at the Rosenhof, where we welcome you on our superb summer terrace.
