This is a classic sausage place. You order a sausage, pick a roll and some mustard. There are a few tables to sit and a number where you can stand. They sell beer as well. Note curry wurst is brautwurst with curry sauce. It was ok.

This is one of my must-go places when in Züri... Great Brats, great selection of breads and of course the house mustard... I miss the temporary bus they used when redoing the place right next to the water but it's still a great meal. You can't visit Züri and miss Sternen

If you're looking for a good bratwurst (or roasted chicken), then head over to Sternen. A Zurich staple since 1963, this place is always crowded. You can sit inside across two floors or outside along the narrow patio on the street, or another narrow patio on the side in the alleyway. You're best bet is to order the special. It... More

Sternen Grill getting posh now since is rebuilt but the "Bratwurst" is still the best for me in town and I love the bred (Bürli) they serve with it.

I've been eating in Sternen Grill with my wife and a friend yesterday evening. I wanted to take something special (something like "zürich special veal", anyway... 24 chf..). I had to struggle to find some small pieces of meat in my dish... really poor portion, my wife and my friend were also astonished... Luckily I had a piece of excellent... More

Thank you for your feedback. I have no reason, why your portion was that small like your described. We never had complains in the past, that our portions are to small. At least I hope, that everything else was good. More

The locals love this place. And deservedly so. Sat upstairs had a fantastic meal. It's loud and busy. Shared tables, you don't come here for a quiet romantic meal. The food is simple and authentic fare. A real cross section of people eat here and the tourists are in the minority. Very central location that is great for public transport... More

This is a local institution. Order at the grill and eat while standing. It's the best brat and spiciest mustard in town.

The place is divided into three areas. On the ground floor you can buy a sausage plus bun or other quick bites and return to the buzz of the city, eating while walking around. For those that have five minutes to spare, there is anumber of tall tables. If you want to sit down and enjoy a glass of wine,... More

I'm happy I had the chance to eat these sausage. I took the veal sausage, with the bread and dijon mustard. It was delicious! It's a great way to taste local food and not spending to much. it was 7.5 CHF for this meal. Not to bad when you consider the price in Switzerland. There was a lot of people,... More
