“Always good!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I've been to several Nordsee restaurants everywhere, even in Dubai. And I keep going back! Why?
- The seafood and the fish are always fresh
- The price is unbeatable in its category
- It's NOT fast food - it's a healthy meal when you're in a hurry (of course there are some "not-so-healthy choices as well; it's up to you, as it is in any other restaurant)

“reasonable seafoon on the go or eat in”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We were rushing to the train and passed by this restaurant. Originally, we planned to grab salmon sandwich and so on but looked again, they also have fresh, semi and cooked menu, so we changed our mind to get grilled salmon and.... well I don't know the exact name but it's prawn in tomato soup with celery, onion and garlic. They could prepare and pack hot for you in less than 10 minutes. It was very nice lunch on the train and we were back for the dinner in the same day, having herring, mussel salad, norwegian cooked style salmon and grilled lobster with reasonable price in their shop (honestly it is cheaper than in our home town). The staff is also friendly.

“Good healthy option at the train station”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Last night I had dinner at Nordsee in the Zurich main train station. I had been skiing in the south of Switzerland and arrived in to Zurich around 9.30pm. I was hungry and wanted to grab a quick and well-priced dinner before heading to my hotel. Nordsee fit the bill for all of the above.

We had the Gemischter Salat, which is the salad currently displayed in the picture next to restaurant at the top of this page. It was around CHF 6.00 and was surprisingly fresh and large. We also had the paella (CHF 17.00), which was cooked in a frying pan for 5-7 minutes and was similarly large and good. We found these two items to be enough for two people. There was plenty of seating when we went and the restaurant decor was fairly attractive.

If you are looking for a reasonably-priced good restaurant at the train station, this may be the best option. The other options at that time of night were: Burger King, a grocery store, and a stall selling bratwurst. This was by far the healthiest option.

“Good for on the go”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Pre-made seafood to be ordered deli-style.

I ordered a fish and chips box and was pleasantly surprised. The fish fingers did not have the malt vinegar feel of British fish 'n chips, but the flavor of the fish appeared to be cod and the batter was medium heavy and well salted. The fries are what Americans might call steak fries, thick and well-seasoned.

Next time I am in Europe and come across Nordsee, I will try something more adventurous and will update my review!

“Nordsee at main train station”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Great selection of excellent fish and shellfish, at a good price and open all day. The chips are excellent, if a little dry.
