Small but very good. We ordered the Lunch Special with chicken. The price was ok for Zurich standards and the service very attentive and fast. I will go again.

It's not easy to find a pure Korean restaurant in Switzerland and we were very happy to find this place. The food was absolutely delicious (even though they had a menu card with pictures in it :-)) the service was extremely nice and helpful. We...More

Good choice in authentic Korean dishes. Lovely, with the right amount of spiciness. Korean chef that will come around to wish you a nice meal.

Great tasting Korean food! Have tried several others but Akaraka served the best taste. Great appetizers with the garlic chives pancake and gyoza. The beef Bibimbap was great with the spicy sauce. Sundobu soup, hot sauce cuttle fish and korean style chicken were all great!...More

A small friendly restaurant just outside the centre of Alstetten. Whilst the menu is moderate in size, it is justified by the quality of the food. A good selection of starters, and for those who like fish but don't like chilli, one of our table...More
