Ok, but not amazing

Given the reviews and reputation of the place I expected an amazing food experience, but despite the food being really good, I would still rate it as 4/5. We took the full menu and it was maybe too much at one time. Some of the tastes didn't go well together. The beef that was the prime part of the... read more

Our Japanese travel group was invited by our Swiss partner to this restaurant and we were all truly amazed about this restaurant's quality of Japanese food. We had the Tokubetsu Kaiseki which was excellent. All dishes were very good in taste and also the presentation was great to the smallest detail (sakura-blossoms for decoration,...) My personal favorite were the sashimi... More

The food in this restaurant was a very positive surprise! we didn't got for any of the "set menus" offered, bur ordered the "Sukiyaki" ... the food was presented in a hot-pot with a tasty sauce accompanied with fresh veggies, raw thin slices of beef were given to us to cook in the nice hot sauce, rice and noodles to...

This is by far a top3 Japanese restaurant of Zurich. It could be Nr1 easily if not taking into account the price which is on the high end. Very low key setting, however super attentive service. I have to mention that it was not a very busy Wednesday dinner. We had some tasting menus and some separate dishes ordered and... More

We tried out this place during our first stay in Zurich and based on reviews on TripAdvisor. We made our reservation last minute and the staff did their very best to make a table available for us. We arrived just in time. From the outside this is not the type of place I would walk in unexpectedly but as usual... More

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
