The five spice restaurant provides a good variety of different asian starters and curries in different flavours with meat, fish or tofu. All together a good combination for lunch (to have a fast bite) or in the evening with friends.

I've discovered this restaurant when I moved to Zurich, with collegues we go there at least once a week, and it's always perfect.
Lunch time they have only three different menus, but it's enought ^^
It allows you to have a quick and tasty lunch,
If your are vegetarian, you'll love this place

Simply good Thai food. One of those far east places where natives go to eat.
Large room, nicely decorated. In summer, you can seat outside in the back-court
They serve Thai wines, we tried their rosé, it was better than expected.

Located two blocks from the Wiedikon Bahnhof. I arrived after the lunch crowd, so the atmosphere was rather relaxed. The restaurant was detailed in red fabric,dark wood tables, bamboo (wicker) chairs with seat cushions.

I was only offered the daily lunch menu specials, so I had to ask specifically for my dish. I ordered a beer and the Pad Thai with tofu. My meal arrived very fast (?) and it was certainly a large serving. As far as the taste of the Pad Thai, I though it was rather mediocre. The staff was friendly and attentive. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean.

The question, as far as would I return again? Based on the taste of the Pad Thai, no. But I would be willing to try another dish and give them a second chance.

Mixed experience. Soup with shrimps, however more spicy than expected, was really tasty. But sweet and sour chicken, which came half an hour later, had nothing special except that it was very dry and had such abundance of sauce around that it seemed almost like another bowl of soup. Rice was good enough. Interior has refreshing big plants and flowers but it is also very eclectic as out of a sudden you see cheap-looking foil-like decorative stripe stretching along the ceiling or big mirror with primitive frames. Anyway, if you are in Zurich on Sunday evening and have only a credit card to pay, this will be one of very few places to eat in the neighborhood. And one tip: don't forget to take a chewing gum or toothbrush with you as the taste of the food is quite noticeable.
