Honestly, coming here was not planned at all. I ended up at Ototo because all other restaurants in the area were fully booked - BUT: it was amazing and I am very happy to have discovered this place. Delicious, fresh sushi, very nice service and great appetizers. Loved it and hopefully will be back soon!

It's a bit off the city center in a residential district called "Wipkingen", but easily accessible and at a street with other good restaurants too (e.g. "Tre Fratelli"). One of the best sushi restaurants in town (and unfortunately, there are plenty of average, fast-food style sushi restaurants in Zurich) and a personal favorite. Slightly more expensive than other sushi restaurants,... More

Ototo is a cute Japanese food restaurant, just as far from the noise of the roads in Zurich. Warm welcoming by the owner. It take a little longer than average to get the food, but maybe because we were early. However, food may be improved, either Ramen, and sushi.

Hidden restaurant that serves the best sushi in Zurich. You should also try their monthly changing warm dishes as they are equally one of the best Japanese food in town.

We (4 people) enjoyed a nice dinner in this italian restaurant. We had pizza and fish, portions are well sized and the food is tasty. The ambiance with the high ceiling is pretty nice, but when if fills up it is quite noisy, so maybe not perfect for a romantic tete a tete. If you fancy a good italian dinner,... More

Went there with a friend and we were excited about the excellent food, good service and nice atmosphere. Rather on a pricier side, but hey - it's sushi and it's Zurich. Highly recommended.

We had a nice amouse bouche, a rather small miso soup and afterwards a very tasty pan-fried tuna with a sesame coat and chiriashi (rice and sashimi) as an included side dish (43 CHF). The food was exceptionally good. Would the restaurant be a little bit cosier, you could enjoy the food even better. Therefore, we would rather recommend the... More
