The ownership changed and the food, although satisfying, is just average and plain. No real Japanese touch any more but an "almost" imitation. Ok for a reasonably priced lunch get the bento box.

I come here for lunch from time to time. The bento boxes are very nice and price-value is fine for the location. The service is quick and efficient.

I liked the food very much as it really appeared very fresh, was nicely presented and tasted very good. The service was polite and quick and I found the prices reasonable considering we're in Zurich.

I've been to this place several times with colleagues as it is right next to the Paradeplatz, very convinient for lunch business meetings. The restaurant used to offer nice bento boxes, not 100% what you would expect from a Japanese place but it was ok (compared to Okara before the cook changed). However we always found the lady owner very... More
