I have been to this branch of Negishi Sushi 3 times so far. The fish is always fresh and of a good standard and nicely presented. The waiters speak English and are friendly (both a bonus in Zurich!!). There is a good selection of platters, sushi and sashimi, noodles and soups. Prices are typically Swiss. There are Inside and outside... More

This is ridiculously over-priced. To be fair the salmon is not too bad but sushi and gyoza, way overpriced.

It seems strange to look for Japanese food in Zurich, but that's what we wanted that day... We took one table outside enjoying the view. The service was good, but the food didn't seem so fresh... Maybe I should have tried another option.

The quality of the fish is good. This is the one and only positive feedback i tell from this pretty discusting sushi bar. The chef de service was really unfriendly and bored, as we ask if we can have hot water with ginger, he answered: "No, it's already summer, we serve just cold drinks." As we get our plate, there...

Not very good sushi and over priced Not Japanese rice which falls easily apart with too much vinegar and why there was a live insect agressively helping me eat the food is the major question which staff did not or could not explain

All-you-can eat sushi cost $49 per person with very little selection. Quality of fish was poor and rolls were pre-made. Service was very slow and only 1 waitress was actually working. This meal would have cost $15 in Toronto based on the quantity and quality.

Just entered Negishi with no specific expectations as my original dinner plans in Zurich got cancelled at the last minute. Had a very tasty meal, feeling ok to have dinner on my own... Sushi are prepared a la minute on an open counter. Nice interaction between the sushi chef and the guests. Efficient service, very good value for money for... More

While sushi is way below average, (we all have stomachache) service is the real negative side of the restaurant. The waitress never smiles, gives back answers and treats guests rudely. She even walked on my friend's jacket and rather than apologizing, she said was his fault as he didn't use the guardrobe. Solution is easy: don't go

This sushi place is in the old town of Zürich and they have fresh and yummy fish, soups, edamame, salads, etc. The service is efficient and friendly and the place has a relaxing and cool atmosphere -with good weather you can also eat outside at the front terrace. Very much recommended.
