Food is good. Unfortunately they took curry and burgers from the menu so mainly Sushi remained. Sushi takes always very long and service is never available as waitress must help out in the citchen too. This is not a good solution and wood need optimization....More

Ordered delivery for sushi for two people to our hotel nearby. We received two boxes, where the sushi was mixed with small soyasauce bottles, and wasabi bags, everything on top of the other, not very hygienic in my opinion. The sushi was made several hours...More

The restaurant close to Sihlcity but hidden. I really like their box plates with fish tartar and sushi. The fish tastes great and fresh and the prices are compared with other Sushi places in Zurich quite low. The restaurant is always full, reservation is definitely...More

Small place with a flavor. Shinsen prepares a lot of sushi for take away and that already says it all. Nevertheless, is very much worth to pass by and try directly these sushi delicatessen. Take your shot.

my noodle soup was disappointing. sushi plates were supermarkets standards ( fresher than supermarket) if you have small children then this place is ok. take away is also good option but do not expect anything special. do not recommend eating there especially for couples

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...More
