This place has an area that sells sandwiches, a sushi train section, and a hot food area with Asian stir fried meals with rice, the latter paid by weight, e.g. 100 grams. We chose the Asian fare and the meals were well prepared although not really cheap. Nothing is cheap in Zurich with average meals costing 20 CHF(almost parity with... More

I highly recommend this sushi spot as the sushi is the best in town. The sushi chefs are extremely friendly and helpful if you want to order something that isn't on the sushi band. I recommend to try the "yamakake" bowls as well as their elaborate eel roll. Further its location is ideal in the center of Zurich's main shopping... More

Picnic is very well located in Zurich. For this reason the place offer good option for take away and quick lunches. On winter they offer a very delicious carrot soup.

We stopped there for breakfast and had cappuccinos, pastries, and a pre-made sandwich. Everything was delicious and the staff were very friendly. Only regret is being too early to try the sushi they were preparing. It looked great!

Convenient location off the main shopping strip. Quick, friendly helpful service. We had soup and quiche which were both tasty. Relaxed and bright interior. Decent value by Zurich standards. Great stop for a quick and casual bite.

Nice food. However, very expensive and portions are a disaster. Large soup was CHF17 and only two thirds full. There are better options in town for the same price and certainly better value ones to be had.

Had running sushi in this place with family. As you know Sushi is expensive in Zurich/Switzerland, so this was not different. Quality wise not anything special. Service ok. The place was very empty for an evening (Yooji's was crowded at same time), and also closed down very early. We got to see the Sushi maker (the first female I have... More
