We have been there last night for a special occasion, my love BD dinner! I was initially a bit disappointed by the strong lights and casual atmosphere as I was expecting it to be a bit more romantic and scenic... in fact the place is pretty authentic Japanese style so I guess it is only a matter of my wrong...

We tried the taster menu, I think 10 dishes, very large variety, fish, meat, soup, sushi, sashimi etc. All extremely high quality, except the beef which was not so special. We could have ordered more expensive meat, but the meal was already expensive - chf 140 each plus drinks. I found service to be very friendly and fast. We didn't... More

There are many places where finding great Sashimi and Nigiri-Sushi is easy. Zurich has many great restaurants but it is not an epicenter for Asian cuisine which makes Sala of Tokyo a special place. We've had the Sashimi and the Nigiri menu which differs only in the main course. From the fresh fish to the rice to the temperature everything... More

kaiseki menu is certainly on a high level food-wise, nicely presented and even with the kobe wagyu affordable (180 CHF). service was good until about 2 hours in the service and then everything slowed down. we tried to order a bottle of water at 4 different waiters and waited 60 minutes because they all forgot. it seems that even though...

We tried this restaurant having arrived from London on a slightly delayed flight. Zurich can be difficult when it gets to 9.30 on a Friday evening. Sala of Tokyo are open, according to their website until 11. We arrived at 10 and it was still busy and we didn't feel they were doing us a great favour as we've felt... More

Brilliant meal. I would rate the food with 6 stars. Super service. Friendly and attentive personnel. Cannot praise the food highly enough. I would eat here every day! A must for everyone visiting Zürich (I live here, so I'm lucky)!

I was only 15 mins late for my booking, and they'd already closed the kitchen. So only the grill and cold foods were available. Throughout the whole meal I was rushed and the food was very badly presented. They were cleaning up around me and basically waiting for me to leave. This was recommended by my hotel so I fed... More

We visited the restaurant without reservation and got one of the last space in the table grill area. As there have been no table grill used this was fine. We decided to go for the gourmet menu with 10 dishes. The food and the dishes were great and the presentation of the dishes was exceptional creative. Especially the Sashimi and... More

We have visited Sala of Tokyo in Zurich since more than 30 years and it certainly has never lost its authenticity, elegant style and attraction of its menu. The fish is as fresh as can be, the extensive sake list interesting and the service friendly and efficient. The whole Sala team contributes to the success of the place. It feels... More
