“It's not really worthy of the price ”
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

It's not really worthy of the price. Very spicy. Service is OK. But the price is crazy high. I don't really know why they dare to charge that much money.

Thank you for your evaluation of your visit to our restaurant Nam Thai. We apologize that our restaurant could not fulfil your expectations. The food in our Thai restaurant is cooked by two highly trained chefs from Thailand and all the products we use are quality products as well as high-quality meat from Switzerland. The spiciness of the single dishes is marked in the menu and can be chosen at the order. Nevertheless we hope to welcome you again at the Nam Thai to convince you from our restaurant.

Best wishes from sunny Engadine

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

I had dinner with my husband on a Friday evening. The place is quite small and cozy, despite being in the Bogn building. Service is ok, but food is at best average and definitely overpriced, even for Scuol standards.
I ordered a soup (literally a cup of tea with 2 prawns and 1 mushroom floating), followed by a meat curry. He ordered a soya salad and a vegetarian curry. His curry was good, mine no more than edible. Both curries came with a scoup of white boiled rice as a side. With a beer and a glass of wine the check totalled 98chf. We found it quite disappointing compared to the food quality and quantity.

“Disappointing...”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

The view from the restaurant is beautiful. Other than that, we were rather disappointed. The service was not attentive but friendly. We thought the food to be alright but nothing to rave about at all. Definitely not too authentic - and I'm saying that as somebody who has worked in Thai-restaurants and knows that there's a large variety of what could count as more or less authentic. Given the not too large size, the dishes were overpriced - but perhaps that's due to the location. You can find better and cheaper Thai-restaurants in every bigger city...

“Naja...not too great”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

Where shoud I start? The location that can hardly be found (entry through the hotel Belvoir, restaurant somewhere in a dungeon next to the thermal bath facilities...)? The prices that are substantial above the quality level? The waiter who is very odd and definitely not customer focussed? The quality of the food which is somewhere near average?

Well, I reckon if you are staying in Scuol for more than 1 week you might consider to have a thai dinner, but if not you better leave the thai dish until you are back in your natural habitat or alternatively travelling to Thailand.

Verdict: Rather average.
