The bento boxes are tasty, among other items on the menu. Though the menu almost don't change over time I like to come back her and enjoy some decent Japanese food. It can be crowed at lunch time so best to plan some extra minutes for the break.

We visited this "restaurant" on a Wednesday evening after work. It was completely deserted. We had to hunt down the waitress. We discovered that this "restaurant" is essentially just a sushi factory that produces the sushi in many of the popular local grocers with several picnic tables outside. There was not even light to read the menu or see the... More

Sushi was good but nothing extraordinary. Service was nice though and the view into the open kitchen is something special as well. Prices are fair. Try it but don't miss some other sushi places in Zurich as well.

We were there for dinner with 2 small kids and the waitress made us feel from the first moment on that we were everything but welcome. We asked several times for a glass of water but never got one. The sushi were served half-frozen. She brought us the desert (ice cream mochi) as the same time as the main dish,... More

They are not really meant to be a restaurant. I had the burger, which looked really good, but sadly I just didn't like it. The portion for this was fairly good though! My friends portions were very small in comparison. I ordered the yuku cheescake for desert and I got a rock solid frozen piece of cake. My poor cake... More

This place is right around the corner so I really wanted to love it. The start was promising: the miso soup and the gyozas were great. The sushi however were not. They were too cold and not really fresh. Too bad but I will just have the appetizers if I come back.

Food is delicious and beautiful. Price is in line with Zürich (not cheap but definitely worth it). Definitely a good sushi restaurant.

Had a phantastic early business dinner at Shinsen. Tasy sushi creations in industrial chic atmosphere and moderate price level. Great place for lunch or dinner or even for take away.

Thank elvividor
