In the middle of Zürich's old city, this multicultural venue is an attractive blend of classical and modern. Affectionately called the King's Throne by the locals, the Blue Monkey serves top quality, authentic Thai cooking, by an attentive staff. The finest of raw ingredients are flown in directly from Thailand. For starters there's a spicy shrimp and glass noodle salad with chopped pork, or the classic grilled satay with peanuts and hot chili sauce. Try the grilled marinated beef with lemongrass and light chili-coriander sauce.
Lake Side Bar and Restaurant is in a wonderful setting with terraces overlooking the beautiful Lake of Zürich. The cuisine served here is creative and varied-- sometimes Mediterranean, traditional and Asian, but generally a fusion of all three, enhanced by influences from other regions of the world. Noted for their fish and crustacean seafood, try the Bouillabaisse, or the Tuna steak with coriander-chili-vinaigrette sauteed chinese cabbage and papaya, and of course, the sushi.
