I had never been here before and was very pleasantly surprised. The quality and flavored were good, you could tell they were done "à la minute" with fresh ingredient as there was a little wait between dishes. Will return!

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.
