Great tasting Korean food! Have tried several others but Akaraka served the best taste. Great appetizers with the garlic chives pancake and gyoza. The beef Bibimbap was great with the spicy sauce. Sundobu soup, hot sauce cuttle fish and korean style chicken were all great!...More

This restaurant is located in Zurich but not in the central area of the city. It is easy to find this restaurant and there is a tram stop near the restaurant. I went to Akaraka just because I was craving for some Korean food, especially...More
