Hi guys, I stumbled upon this place by chance just because it is close to my office, and I was very, very impressed. It is both take away and sit-down restaurant (we will sit down and eat there), and their Pad Thai is delicious! The realpickygourmet also has a comment about it here.

They have trashy neon signs and lots of orchids. I'm in.

The place is awesome - kitschy enough, friendly enough, and the food is yummy!

There are plenty of non spicy options as far as I know, and whenever I asked they were pretty helpful (and truthful, as in "not spicy" = "NOT SPICY", not = "I don't think it's spicy at all, but for you spice-wuss, it's probably very spicy!").

Cheers!

That's not the food; it's the company you keep

Re: A Taste of Thailand - Lunch in Zurich

ok, this time I'll try to be on time when orders are taken and study the menu instead of just saying: I'll have what federica had

but you know, I think I'll stick to the HOT company, I've gotten used to it

Have to be there a bit earlier as I have meetings in the afternoon (and the Comedy Night later). As far as I can see the most common language will be Italian.

Re: A Taste of Thailand - Lunch in Zurich

Wow, what an awesome response! I know the place is small, but they should be able to accommodate us all. I will ask today if we can make a reservation, and if so I will make it for 12 people- if we have one or two extra people, I honestly, I don't think it should be a problem. Prof and PapaGoose: hope to see you there!

Re: A Taste of Thailand - Lunch in Zurich

Update: I booked a table for 12 at 12, plus/minus a couple of people (my maybes above) and I told them that some of us might get there a few minutes earlier, and they are cool with that.

While there, I picked up some rice dish with veggies, chicken and prawns (don't ask me the name though) which was amazingly tasty, and not spicy at all

See you there!

Re: A Taste of Thailand - Lunch in Zurich

Thank you so much to all who made it - and again my apologies for being a bit late (work!). I am very glad that, from the impression I got, people seemed to really like the food. Yay!

Uncle we missed you, but great to meet so many new people - and of course see the regulars

Until the next one!

Re: A Taste of Thailand - Lunch in Zurich

There is a place in Wiedikon Called Lemon Grass. It`s one minute walk from Mannesaplatz. According to a half Tha friend it`s the best she had in Zurich so far! We like it cause it feels more like a homemade meal and Mamma sort of service and good prices! Try it out!
