Very broad variety of dishes. The food comes really quickly, in big portions & is delicious! We had some curries that were really good!

We have been going to Lily's for over 15 years, rediscovered it this summer and very pleased to find one of our old friends still (again) working there. Menu has chnaged for the better, we now have our selection of favourites to share. Gets very busy for dinner, but bookings not possible.

The food is very fresh and the staff is quick. It is not a place to stay longer, as it doesn't have much atmosphere. On lunch reservations are needed!

Asian/Indian food of great quality! Loud and vibrant atmosphere, always very busy in the evenings and popular within a younger crowd! Friendly staff and great service!

Very cool and tidy experience that is all about what you eat and drink. When you visit Lily's you should focus on choosing your dish and enjoy it with friends or others round you - you will be sitting at big long tables with others so its easy to meet someone new. food is superb starting with soups and main...

The restaurant appears to be a factory (or some kind of industrial building) made into an attractive setting for dining. The ceiling is about 30 feet and has many windows so there is plenty of natural light. The room is decorated with several Asian objects. For example it has replicas of the terracotta soldiers from China. The staff was friendly... More

The menu reads well but overall this is a fusion of south-east asian cuisines where nothing really stands out. There are interesting sounding dishes but the execution is average. A tofu stir fry dish was bland. Pork in breadcrumbs and some Japanese fusion potato salad was ok. Dim sum-esque dumplings were good. A thai style beef noodle dish was ok... More

Not exactly a Thai for purists but they cook very tasty dishes. Relaxed uncomplicated and usually fast service. The curries are great, in particular the green Thai curry is a must. They Serve good locally brewed ginger beer. Recommended

This restaurant is always very busy, I think because of its location and since it is not the most expensive in Zurich (not the cheapest either). The food is average and the room is very small with canteen tables so you will end up cosily side by side with complete strangers. Not worth the bother if you are not in... More

I enjoyed a delicious indian dish here with a friend last week. It was spicy and authentic. Definitely worth the money and friendly service.
