We had a nice lunch here with our three kids. The sushi tasted fresh and we enjoyed our meal, and especially liked sitting outside on a nice wide pedestrian street surrounded with cool shops. We'd go back.

Like the sushi. For Zurich prices, it's actually quite affordable. Service was friendly but a tad slow. Nice atmosphere.
