Thai cuisine is said to be one of the best in the world and Thai food has certainly been in fashion for several years. However, there are few Thai restaurants recommended by the famous GaultMillau guide. The Tom Yam in Lausanne is one of them. The guide’s food-lovers recognise the quality of the dishes, particularly the specialities of Chef Nattida Promchai: soft shell crab, scallops and minced chicken from Swiss farms (this is sufficiently rare to be noted). The home-made desserts are a delight to the taste buds, especially for those who love coconut.
Those with a sensitive palate need not worry, as the seasoning is adapted to our Western tastes. Regulars who wish to discover the whole spicy charm of South-East Asia may ask for the original recipe, as Chef Nattida Promchai used to cook it when she was a young girl in Thailand.
