They have a limited chlice of thai food. But what they have has always been delicious. Whether it is a green, red, yellow curry with meat or vegetarian. Always a pleasure to eat there. Would not reckommend it as a place to have a nice evening though. Its good for what it is. Quick food to eat therequickly ortake away.

The food was ok. Precooked but the taste was good. The staff was horrible. The woman was the unfriendliest person in Zürich that I met during my stay here. Would not return here.

Thai Bamboo offers decent Thai food for a very reasonable price (at least for Zurich standards). The local is small but, in some sense, charming, for it evokes the typical restaurants one can find in South East Asia (plastic chairs and tables, etc.). Besides, the food is not bad at all (indeed, it was considerably tasty). To sum up, Thai... More

The food is consistently tasty at an honest price point for Zürich. The dishes are varied but I usually stick with tofu or duck curry.

As we we're staying locally we thought for ease we'd try Thai Bamboo in Zurich old town, all I can say is we were pleasantly surprised. Having read the other reviews we weren't holding out much hope but thought we'd try it out and wow it was good. Living in Sydney Australia we're use to great Thai food and this... More

We found this small restaurant wich i think is runned by thai guys. the pad thai was nearly the same taste like the one I ate in Thailand, but it has lots of noodles and few vegies and meet. Overall we were pleased with their offer at swiss prices.

Taste of the food was ok. Nevetheless the food must have been days old and heaten up several times. On top of that staff was unfriendly. Overall, a place to forget and not go again

Cheap Thai food for the cost of 15 franc. The food was not that bad, the tom yam soup (20 franc) was excellent though. The spiciness of the tom yam soup was just right for me! Highly recommended if you are looking for a slightly less expensive and authentic Thai meal.
