“One of the top two sushi bars in Zurich”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Genuine Japanese cooks preparing imaginative sushi, sashimi, and related Japanese delicacies. You can have any sushi maki, nigiri, or chirashi you like - even uni! - but they serve unique inventions, not typical of traditional sushi bars but worth the picture, the taste, and the price. We ate all we could and came out at just 100 Frs/person incl. wine.

Only sore point: they are profit-driven like anyone but it shows: to rotate at least two services per seat and per meal, they force you to choose between an early or a late time slot - nothing in between.

“Ginger - Top quality sushi & best in Zurich (and I mean it)”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Ginger hits the sweet-spot for sushi variety and surprises in Zurich. Absolutely fresh, serious sushi served with quiet and precise passion. Beautifully prepared lobster, salmon, tuna, and a host of other dishes, even those with the nearly-raw egg all delicately spiced and seasoned. The sushi lunch bar filled up from zero to complete within around 20 minutes creating a cosy, (but-not-close) intimate atmosphere with the two sushi-chefs. Forget menus, just select a dish and eat immediately. There are chains of sushi bars in Zurich, but for real sushi, there's only one Ginger!

“Ginger makes customers feel that GREED IS GOOD!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Greed is good! That's what Ginger in Seefeldstrasse Zurich made us feel. Says Angie the waitress, if you're not ordering more than your CHF150 bill, then leave for other customers to take your table. Angie's couldn't be Swiss as her style was untypical of Swiss we know. Or Ginger trained her to make as much money per table even of to displease customers and not make them want to come back. Highly not recommended in Zurich ONLY if you want to be treated right for value of your money. This is the only place in Zurich that has treated customers with such greed!

“Quick, convenient and very tasty”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

This restaurant has been on my list for a long time. It's in the area I usually stay when I visit Zürich.

The restaurant serves a wide variety of freshly-prepared sushi dishes. They also have a good wine and (Japanese) beer selection. They do not have a menu though, so some familiarity with sushi varieties is necessary when visiting the place.

I was quickly served and enjoyed my time at Ginger, but the staff was a bit curt and I got the impression the sushi chef started cleaning his preparation area at well before 2PM. The clients were a mix of local musicians, business people and students.

Keeping that in mind, it seems like a good lunch address, but I wouldn't choose it for a romantic dinner or late-night dining.
