The service is very slow and poor, when you finally get the food it reminds you of 30 years ago-plenty of fried, no zest and no spices. The room is masssively overheated. Authentic? No

What a quality! Great Thai food at the Samui Thai. The staff is very friendly, the service fast and very professional. The big surprise is the wine list at the Samui, the choice is tremendously large and the prices are incredibly low! This is a real WOW!

Beautiful setting in a very nice hotel at the lake. The food was good but unfortunately we were seated on a table that, after sunset, did not have any lights, therefore we barely saw what we were eating. A pity. Overall a mixed experience for us but I understand why a lot of people like this place.

Samui-Thai is in the Seerose Resort and Spa, a lovely and quiet spot along the eastern shore of Lake Hallwil. The Thai food is very authentic and perfectly prepared with all the traditional dishes you would expect. They have an excellent wine list.The service was perfect with several serves speaking very good English. Our kids were made to feel welcome.

Booked table for six in advance to celebrate a birthday. Took a while to get our orders placed for starters, mains and wine, as personnel was busy ushering others into the restaurant.

Excellent service and food. The design of the restaurant is beautiful and the food is very well thought out and beautifully cooked. A little on the expensive side, but worth it. Shame we couldn't get a table with a view.

Description
Thailand at Lake Hallwilersee! The regal Thai speciality restaurant "Samui-Thai" is rich with exotic delicacies and has a holiday feeling. In the Seerose restaurant "Elements" in Meisterschwanden, you will find regal Thai speciality restaurant "Samui-Thai", which has been awarded 14 points from the prestigious Gault Millau guide. The Thai crew creates exotic delicacies to take you on a culinary flight of fancy. On the menu, for example, you will find strips of chicken breast in a yellow curry with coconut milk and vegetables, roasted Jakobs mussels in a light red curry with coconut milk, basil and Thai vegetables, or a Thai "Kokosköpfli" with taro in a natural coconut sauce with iced vanilla. The service at the "Samui-Thai", under the leadership of Sylvie Kämpf, makes for a perfectly relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The Thai restaurant is furnished in mauve and brown tones with refined decoration, which takes the guests on a journey into a faraway place in Thailand.
