“Gleis 9 - well worth a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

We were in Oerlikon on a business trip, and went to Gleis 9. It's literally right next to the station (hence the name, duh?!), so you can't miss it.

Food was great - good quality, and fair prices. And a really good balance on the menu between local dishes, and "international" dishes e.g. curries. I had the Geschnetzeltes, a local speciality from the Zurich region (diced veal in a creamy mushroom sauce), and my wife had prawn curry (which was a Thai-style rather than Indian-style curry).

Service was friendly and very efficient.

And good choice of wines and beers from the bar.

Only downside was that it smelled quite strongly of cigarette smoke inside.
