When going to Ticino, this is a very good place to stop for good food. The chicken in the basket is a must try. It is a shame that when we first arrived we didn't enter from the main door, so the main waitress was really rude to us and placed us in the worst table, behind on the back,... More

If this restaurant wasn't as nicely situated between Zurich & Ticino, it would definitely have a lot less business. Because: although the chicken is very nice, the ambiente, staff and prices just kind of ruin the experience. Everybody in the room seemed a little irritated by the athmosphere the staff was constantly spreading. Eventhough the restaurant was almost empty, there... More

We are familiar with the restaurant for about 20 years, keep coming for now and than. Last time we had our usual order: two salads, two Poulet Picante, and a bottle of beer to share. Salads are good as had before, the main issue and main reason to visit the restaurant is the wonderful poulet!! What a disappointment!! At the... More

Unpretentious, typical, local restaurant, very famous amid travelers along the freeway connecting Germany to Milan. They are extremely fast, efficient and serve excellent mixed salads and very tasty half-chickens in the basket, on a butter/mustard sauce, accompanied by french fries. Don't ask for more or anything different. This people invented the european "chicken fast food" and are sitting on a... More

Went there last Sunday based on a colleague's recommendation.Long queue but ok as we did not book. It was an extreme busy place, was shocked to see the situation was like a chaotic wet market. The waitress was very rude, rolled her eyes when we asked about the menu (being 1st timer). The tables were so closed to each other... More

We wanted to have a bite to eat and chose the 'Shocking' in Attinghausen. It is a large restaurant where since the 1970's nothing seems to have changed. A very tired looking interior full of gnomes and dolls(?). But if the food is good a retro ambiance doesn't disturb us. We had the signature dish: chicken in a basket. We... More

Food: nice chicken but if you consider the fact that the tinny bit of sauce is mainly made by butter -> no rocket science for me Staff: our waitress was crazy incompetent and unfriendly. We were lucky as her shift ended Ambiente: other guests behave like in mcdonalds or an ikea restaurant. Very old furniture and everything smells like old... More

Definitely one of the things to do when you are around, go have a chicken in a basket in this Restaurant.

This is a legendary place for Swiss people. It is tradition that every time we go leisure in the northern part of Switzerland we stop by this restaurant! You only have to order one thing, no need to look at the menu. Chicken in a basket with an amazing secret butter sauce. It is a very traditional restaurant and a... More

Good place to stop on your way to Ticino or back from. The chicken was very good loved the spicy sauce, the make really good crispy fries. Now the service is not the best even though it was a slow night when we went we had to wait a longtime to even get a menu. If they improve the service... More
