“Fresh, spicy and done with care.”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant may not appear to be much from the street, but the interior is modern, and as crisp and polished as both the food and the staff. Understated service (that is, charming, helpful and sensitive when you need them and not bothersome when you don't...), an exotic menu (Jackfruit, water spinach and candle nuts - not your everyday fare!) and delicious food (that is spiced like you'd expect in Indonesia...) complement each other splendidly to make for a warm recommendation.
Whether for a busines dinner, a night with friends or a date, I would come back here (and bring others) at only the hint of a suggestion!

“Great place for Indonesian food”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

If you like Indonesian food and are in Zurich, this is the place to go. Really great; friendly staff, good selection of foods which are fresh and excellent. I like spicy food, and if you make a remark during your order, you will get spicy food (for sure, there is also not spicy :-) So great quality, friendly staff but in Zurich, which means not really cheep, but you will like it.

“Surprisingly good Asian food in Zurich”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Living in Zurich it is not easy to find good Asian food outside of Thai cuisine. I was pleasantly surprised to find this Restaurant, not located in the best of neighborhoods, to supply an excellent variety of starters, curries and desserts.

The satay is particularly good as they use the special dark sauce only to be found in Malaysia and Indonesia. For main dish we had varieties out of which the duck and the fried fish were particularly good.

“Hidden oasis in Oerlikon!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Me and my gf was looking for new asian restaurants to try in Zurich, facing extremely limited and poor choices we were excited when we heard from friends about Dapur.

The restaurant is sneakily tucked away in one of the side streets near oerlikon train station. And from the outside the place looked quite fancy and possibly pricey ;)

However, as we entered the restaurant the ambience of great indoors with dark color and good lighting while a nice and chilled-out outdoor terrace was available. We got ourselves a table outside of course :)

The service was great! The crowd was very diverse which was a rare scene in Zurich. As the waiters and patrons exchanged friendly greetings in Indonesian and shared brief stories about their connections with Indonesian, the evening already began on the right note.

The price was reasonable for Zurich, a main dish was around 25-30 chf while appetizers were around 12-14 chf.

We started with filled tofu which came in a golden fried texture and tasty dipping sauce! For the main dish we. ordered a chicken dish that came with jackfruit, egg, lime, ginger, teak tree leaves etc. and a nice and crispy fried fish with curcuma.

The food was 5/5. This is a place where u can find asian food with true character.

We would definitely recommend this place!
