I made a reservation at this restaurant for a casual business dinner for a group of 6. The staff were very friendly the whole evening. The atmosphere was also great, the restaurant was full so reservations are required. The food was good, tasty, but I wouldn't say amazing. It came out relatively quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and some said they would go back there next time they were in Zurich. I wouldn't recommend his place for a formal business dinner with clients however, but for more of a casual dinner with friends it's great.

Very friendly staff, excellent service, good food. Place is always full, so book ahead. Not "standard" Thai food; cuisine leans toward Indian influence. Good value.

Dear trbukxdk
Thank you for this favourable feedback. We want to be above standard, thats why we only buy best quality products. All our four cooks are from Thailand, two from Bangkok region and two from north, northeast.
Hope you drop by soon again.
Yours Ruedi Rickli

Having read all the good reviews, my friends and I decided to give this restaurant a try.
We went for an evening meal ( a la carte, not buffet).
The food was very average. The portions were extremely small, definitely not worth the price tag.
We paid around 40 CHF for a tiny dish of beef. There are better Thai restaurants in Zurich than this. Won't be going there again.

We have been there for a Friday evening meal with my daughters. The food is good and the portion quite large. Presentation of the food is average and taste ok, but not great.
Service corteous and attentive.
Ensure you ask the right spice level (especially if you want hotter food).
Right price for Zurich (we spent 55 chf per person without wine nor dessert).

We had such a nice meal here last week with friends.
The restaurant had a great atmosphere, it was very busy (inside and out) - so worth booking a table.
The service was fantastic, for which I am very grateful in Zurich!
The staff speak fluent English, should you require it.
The food was delicious and easily comparable to local Thai restaurants back in England.
We ordered a mixed starter for 4, spring rolls, fish cakes, chicken satay etc...
I had the Panang, it was delicious. Huge portion, I had to take half of it home.
Just as delicious the next day.
Highly recommend :)
