Staff unhappy and normal food

The first impression we had was, that the staff seems to be unhappy. The served us the food by almost throwing the plate in front of us. I ve even asked one of them if they are very busy (restaurant was half full) and she answered "no"! The food is average, not bad, but not really something you... read more

The location is very central and a fairly nice spot to sit outside in the summer. The food was alright and filled the void in my stomach but definitely nothing to rave about. The place was jam packed and they were understaffed which did not allow a prompt service and the personal was friendly but clearly swamped.

I can't believe some people did not like this place. Fine, it could be cheaper, but the food is nice, atmosphere is good and service is great. Every order at lunchtime comes with a free salad and a soda (1 liter!!!). Bread is also free. If you come after 1 pm, you also get free coffee. Prices are, on average,... More

Firstly, all the people complaining about the food quality - you are dumb! of course the food wont be top notch, it's designed to be a random selection and it is more a bar than a restaurant so deal with it! Yes it is pricey but it's Zurich! The place has a great vibe and atmosphere, every so many minutes... More

This is a lovely and very relaxed diner with a great atmosphere. The buffet style food includes eggs, pancakes and waffles along with eggs, potatoes, breads and local foods too. It's a very easy going environment with a nice social but not noisy feel about it. Definitely a great find.

All in the title. had the red curry and a quesadailla. Far from Thai and Mexican food. long tim I had such a bad quality for a 30.- plate. Atmosphere is fine tough. Maybe just ok to drink a glass but would not recommend it to eat.

It was big and loud but friendly staff and the food a lot of different things small and big and for Zurich fair price. Not a place for a nice diner but to have a quick meal perfect.

My guests had spare ribs which was ok! I had a salad which was really revolting! Ice cold chicken strips mixed with dried tomatoes ,garlic, splattered on a bed of lettuce (the rest was unrecognizable). The service was unprofessional, food overpriced!

I was at this restaurant with a friend to have a nice dinner and chatting. Definitively a bad choice. We had no reservation, but got a table in between two other tables. Veeery tight, we squeezed ourselves in. When one of the tables next to us got vacant, we wanted to move, but got rudely informed that the table was... More

I went there for brunch. There is one price and it is all you can eat. However, there are many nice options missing from the brunch. There were plenty of different things but I would characterize this a hotel breakfast rather than a brunch. The prize is far too high for what it is offered. I heard so many good... More
