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

We came here for a business lunch. The service was extremely attentive and the food excellent all through the board. The best was the tempura-style marinated black cod. However, also the sashimi, the sea bass and the dessert was very good. They have four different lunch options and "à la carte". We were very happy with the wine suggestion, a... More

This is a good Japanese restaurant. Top scale sushi and sashimi. Tempura was good, but not at the level of best Tempura one gets in Tokyo (limited variety, etc.). Teriyaki was just ok. Price of a Teriyaki or Tempura portion (with side rice and salad), 70 SFR and over. Way too high. Service was terribly slow. We ordered at 8:00,... More

I had dinner at Sala of Tokyo twice. The food was delicious, and there was a lot of variation between the meals served on both visits. I cannot praise the Wagyu-Beef Entrecôte highly enough, outstanding. While this restaurant is not a cheap option, it is really the right place if you want to try something new and are with sufficient... More

Food was really delicious - the Teriyaki Beef menu was excellent and the Tempura and sushi also excellent. Staff were attentive but not very friendly... Overall I can recommend it, although it is definitely on the expensive side!!
