Nice that Japanese doesn't only mean sushi. Authentic touch, attentive service. The menu however felt limited if not eating fried food. Might rather be my own issue than the restaurant. Nice experience, but haven't got the urge to return.

The food is delicious. The service is efficient. What else do you want me to say? Oh ya, it was a bit out of the way for me.

We went there because of the nice reviews but it was very disappointing. The food is not up to the expectations and staff was not attentive and even rude. Too many people sitting close to one another and it was loud even if we were...More

This relatively simple eatery has a few long tables outside, which are great during warm weather. The inside decor is unpretentious and tasteful. The entire personnel are Japanese, who are super helpful and friendly. The menu is somewhat comprehensive but everyone will find something interesting...More

Great place, good staff and decent pricing ! The starters are great and you can still find quite a lot of options beyond Ramen

Absolutely overrated food! If this calls Japanese food, then I wonder what it should call the one I had during my 10 years stay in Japan. On top of that, totally unfriendly service!!!! Never ever!!! Nie wieder!!!!

There are several Ramen Places in Zürich but this is by far the best. The service is super friendly. I'm going regularly eating there and the quality of the Ramen and Guioza is always great. The setting is authentic and cozy.

Went with friends. Full to the last seat on a regular day, but absolutely perfect service, great food and a very cozy atmosphere. Definitely a place to visit again, amazing Ramen and I felt almost like in Tokyo. Will come again.
