I know that the photo I’ve included may serve as a deterrent rather than as an enticement, but that’s precisely the point I want to make here. There is nothing about the outer decor that screams “give me a whirl”, but once you step inside and smell the food you’ll realize the exterior is merely a camouflage technique. If Beyond was so deliberately welcoming from the outside, they wouldn’t be able to serve all the people flooding in – it’s already teeming with people on most days as it is!
I stepped in out of curiosity, incidentally while intending to head to Chiang Mai (check out the Chiang Mai Thai Shop article). My friend and I decided it was a bit over zealous to want to eat outside in February so we stepped into Beyond instead.
I had been bemoaning the lack of proper Chinese food in Zurich for a long time but my incessant whining has now been silenced. I fell in love with the aubergine all over again after tasting the impossible to pronounce delicacy that I had here. True to Chinese style cuisine, this place is best visited with a posse of tasty food seekers in tow as each dish is pretty huge. You’ll definitely get the best of the experience if you order lots of dishes and share them.
