This place has been around a very long time. While the servers have changed most of the kitchen staff remain. The soup is a bit weak but the noodle and curry dishes deliver. Gies down great with a Singha beer!

First time today, for lunch. Have lived in several Asian countries and visited Thailand numerous times. Very disappointing Pad Thai to put it mildly. Service was quick, friendly and good. There is much better genuine Thai food in Geneva, with similar prices.

We routinely order take out from Sam-Lor Thai and recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable option for vegetarians in Geneva.

While a bit lacking in spice, all dishes we sampled were quite tasty and otherwise well balanced. Seafood was a pleasant surprise and good quality. Prices were Geneva norm. Service was attentive and so very gracious. Would return!

The food was not good but still at high prices. Im wondering if the chef has been changed but the food is definitely not as good as before.... Or it could be the quality of the meat has been changed...

Good authentic Thai food not too spicy . You can try the pad Thai or their plat du jour which change every day and you could change the plate of the day too with multiple choice of entrees and main dish . Ask for extra spice if you wish. They offer takeaway too and the next door sumo yakitori is... More

The food was very delicious and really fresh. Good atmosphere and friendly service. Pricing level is good, given the price level in Geneva. (still a bit too high)
