The restaurant close to Sihlcity but hidden. I really like their box plates with fish tartar and sushi. The fish tastes great and fresh and the prices are compared with other Sushi places in Zurich quite low. The restaurant is always full, reservation is definitely recommended especially during lunch.

Small place with a flavor. Shinsen prepares a lot of sushi for take away and that already says it all. Nevertheless, is very much worth to pass by and try directly these sushi delicatessen. Take your shot.

my noodle soup was disappointing. sushi plates were supermarkets standards ( fresher than supermarket) if you have small children then this place is ok. take away is also good option but do not expect anything special. do not recommend eating there especially for couples

The bento boxes are tasty, among other items on the menu. Though the menu almost don't change over time I like to come back her and enjoy some decent Japanese food. It can be crowed at lunch time so best to plan some extra minutes for the break.

We visited this "restaurant" on a Wednesday evening after work. It was completely deserted. We had to hunt down the waitress. We discovered that this "restaurant" is essentially just a sushi factory that produces the sushi in many of the popular local grocers with several picnic tables outside. There was not even light to read the menu or see the food. The sushi was tasteless, the edamame was ice cold, and the dumplings we ordered were never served. Will not visit this place again.
There are plenty of better sushi options in the area.

We were comped three of our beers, but sadly that won't be enough to bring us back a second time.
