Exquisite Thai cuisine and a Southeast Asian-inspired ambience are the pillars of the restaurant White Elephant in the Zurich Marriot Hotel, located directly on the Limmat and a stone’s throw from the stunning old town.

With dishes on which fresh vegetables, succulent meat and exotic spices interact, the White Elephant’s menu ranges from sautéed Thai spinach with shiitake mushrooms, garlic and chilli, to Panang Curry with crushed peanuts and Kaffir cabbage, across to marinated beef with a delicate oyster sauce. Fine wines and refreshing beers present ideal pairings.

Reclining on the White Elephant’s leather sofas, this restaurant in Zurich attracts guests not only for its first-rate cuisine, but also its inviting atmosphere and Far Eastern decorations.

On foot, the White Elephant is around 10-15 minutes away from Zurich’s central station and old town. Housed in the Zurich Marriot Hotel, the White Elephant is directly on the Limmat and opposite the Platzspitz.

    Sehr nette und zuvorkommende Bedienung. Gute Qualität - eher hohes Preisniveau. Nicht für jeden Tag.

    Aufmerksame und freundliche Bedienung. Essen lecker und schön präsentiert.

    Enttäuschend; das Essen. nicht warm genug; lieblos. Gemüse fast roh, Geschmack wie in einem billigen Thai Take Away.
    Früher war das eine Perle, heute eine grosse Enttäuschung. Schade. - Personal - automatisiert, wie ein Computer, die Worte zwar liebenswürdig, aber ohne(echtes) Interesse und Blickkontakt.

    Good food, staff friendliness/pleasantness requires improvement. Asked for a prosecco/lychee cocktail as an aperitif. There was no lychee liquor in it, just lychee fruit, when you removed the fruit there was no more than 50ml of prosecco and they charged 16chf for it. After that, I ordered a glass of prosecco. I got a full glass (1cl) for 8chf.
