I love Asian food, and I always considered the Japanese cuisine as the least spicy and therefore least interesting representative of Asian food. Comparing it to the explosion of different tastes of an Indian or Thai dish. Maybe I just had too many Sushi or Teppanaky. The tasty variations of the Japanese food in this house taught me better .... More

But wait they have expanded and improved their Japanese dishes All of a sudden the spicy tuna maki is superb as are the shrimp tempura The nigiri is the best in Zurich. Quite a large bar and a seperate restaurant area. I prefer the bar. A rising... More

it's not often that i give 1 out of five (happened only once previously) but there are certain principles that trigger it: cheating and hygiene. This is a case for the former. Zurich is sort of home, or at least where i spend most of my working days. So i have been to Metropole as neighbour several times. Usually i... More

Situated just a stone's throw from the Bahnhofstrasse and close to the Frau Munster Church, one can sit outside on the veranda or inside in a well designed modern restaurant. Pros: excellent service especially for Zurich, wide selection of hot and cold dishes plus well priced tasting menus (from 75 CHF). The food was delicious although the portions are small... More

Great location, in the heart of Zurich - beautiful old Zürich 'Ambiance'. Unfortunately, we had a very unpleasant experience: bad coffee (with lots of chocolate) and very unfriendly service (made us leave and get breakfast around the corner). Maybe the servant had a bad day, too bad for such a great location.

I noticed how appealing the outdoor chairs'n'table were in the sunny arcade adjoining this section of the Metropole complex...until I realised, yet again in Zurich--there's no area for NON-Smokers like me! But the no-smoking interior saw I was not alone by any means & I had a very nicely made & delivered Espresso Doppio (& expensive @ CHF 6 50!!).... More

This is so Swiss. Arrived at 1.58 to be told kitchen was closed. Then at 2.25 the waitress returns with new menus and announces the kitchen is now open with a different menu. Since we explained we wanted food particularly for the kids when we arrived and we ordered what we could - curried popcorn and some ice team -... More
