Service was ok although first waiter... More

Tried for dinner based on all TA rave reviews - what a disappointment! Very far from great, average at best. Ebi tempura soggy, spicy tuna rolls with not a hint of spice, crispy duck dried out... The only two dishes that were ok were chirashi and kingfish carpaccio, but nothing to write home about. Certainly will not return, back to... More

I consider they have a quite limited amount of sushi types, but those we tried were great! Freshly made and very tasty. Also the service was great. Friendly, nice, very helpful. We have nothing to complain about.

Went to Yen's after work with two colleagues and we were not disappointed. It's difficult to find good sushi in Zurich (we are pretty far from the ocean) and especially difficult to find good sushi at a decent price. I was very pleasantly surprised. I would say that the waiters could be a bit faster and more accommodating. They were... More

This might be an acceptable place for European standards but we were much disappointed with the quality if the food. It was little imaginative and taste was mediocre.

First of all I want to clarify that I gave this restaurant the opportunity to contact me personally after my very bad experience before writing this review. After not hearing from them in over four weeks I believe people should be warned: It was my first and last time at this restaurant after having fallen ill with pretty bad food... More

Fantastic sushi in close to the heart of Zurich... Kid friendly as an added bonus.. If you appreciate fresh sushi and a nice bottle of rose (it went down a treat on a barmy 29 degree evening, absolutely fantastic)... Definitely will return on my next trip to this beautiful city. Worth a visit...
