Excellent japanese food but very expensive

Excellent japanese Close the the main railway Station in Zürich. Great sashimi and Sushi but really expensive. I really eat regularly Sushi & sashimi in Switzerland and this is not cheap but this is the highest Price I saw for Switzerland. Still very good and fine food

Superb food, lovely ambiance, authentic and very friendly (mostly Japanese) staff. Make sure to pre-order the kobe beef (for sukiyaki) and you're set for a unforgettable dinner. Enjoy!

We have visited this restaurant again after summer and as usual, all the staffs including the owner greeted us with very warm hands. Excellent food was offered and we all enjoyed the meal very much. Tips: Try the scallops

This restaurant is in walking distance from the hotel along with the road and tram line. Serves authentic Japanese cuisine. I have up for some Japanese in Zurich then this place is excellent.

Traditional Japanese food. Lots of choices. Proper delivery of Japanese classics. No surprises, no creativity. But reassuringly good.

We (a couple) visited the restaurant for dinner. We ordered the CHF 140.- kaiseki dinner. We were very disappointed because the food was very average- some were actually mediocre, with baby corns and corn pieces and cherry tomato in a cold corn soup. If you are expecting an average quality kaiseki meal like they serve in Japan, what they serve... 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

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 menu... More
