Nordsee is a chain of small fast-food restaurants, featuring fish. It's the best. Here, the fish fillets are of uniformly excellent quality and size. The vegetables are tasty, unadorned by loud sauces. You get pleasant service at the counter without waiting, and find a table. There is never noise. Nordsee can also be found at Zurich Airport (in the building... More

This will isn't only a train station carry out. You can actually eat in and enjoy a beautiful dinner with a decent bottle of wine for better value than anywhere else in zurich. The shrimps salads are especially good. The paella isn't bad but the salmon and fish of the day was excellent. Better not too late though. This seems... More

This chain restaurant is very famous in Germany. In Switzerland it has established its business steadily in the last decade. The restaurant offers a wide range of dishes you can get for takeaway or simply eat-in. Mostly the food is already prepared and kept warm. The tables are not set for a leisurely meal but rather for a quick one.... More

I saw a used syringe in the bathroom. I do not recommend it. There is no control. They should control the people who enter. Anyone can become infected.

I have visited Nordsee with my parents. We loved the food, everything was fresh. Unfortunately, the floor was so dirty under our table. In general the staff was helpful, and food choice was really wide.

This is a fast food chain selling seafood. We ordered calamari box (ZHR 6.90), grilled fish with rice and potato (ZHR 17.80) and Fanta orange (ZHR 4.80) for our dinner. The price was ok for Zurich but taste was not good. The calamari was over cooked and fish was not very fresh.

The Nordsee offers an excellent place to grab a quick bite, and provides for good value given the generous portions offered. Primarily sea food, the food is tasty and given the high turnover of the restaurant always guaranteed to be fresh.
