I've been many times to Yen's and I absolutely love their passion and dedication to provide a fantastic experience. The food it's very tasty and the fish really fresh. I'd recommend the sashimi and the Halong Bay shrimps.

+ excellent selection of nice sushi, also suitable choices for vegetarians + small but good selection of wine + very nice and helping staff make a reservation in advance, always booked price level is good according to Zurich. Coming from outside Switzerland, it seems high.

I contacted Yen's via e-mail and within five minutes I received a very friendly answer. They were fully booked (on a Monday!) but had found as a place at the bar. No problem as long as we get good sushi ;) But, when we arrived we were welcomed by the owner who immediately knew who we were and surprised us... More

Tuna sashimi and some occtopus salad were good, service often disturbing our discussion while not beeing patient enough for at least 2-3 seconds. On the neighbor table left hand side the service dropped sushi on the floor, right hand side tea has been spilled on the floor while serving. Overall okay but other sushi locations in town are better even... More

Let me start by saying we travel a lot, and eat out a lot. We walked into Yen's about 7:00 on a Thursday evening to celebrate my mothers birthday and were surprised to find out it was packed for the entire night. When I mentioned that we taxied over ( it was raining) and that it was my mothers birthday,... More

My first Sushi in Switzerland, and I just don't understand what everyone is raving about. Maybe it good by Swiss standards, but all of you tourist better stick to European or Swiss food. Sashimi was not fresh at all just old! There is no way that anyone that knows Fresh Sushi thinks this is any good!

We went to Yen's again on a Sunday night for Sushi night. First I have to say it's always nice to come here and enjoy their great Japanese food. I was however confused as to some people eating warm food, when we had been explicitly told that there is only sushi. The quality of the sushi however is always great... More

Dear guests, many thanks for your visit and for rating us again. We appreciate the feedbacks of our guests very much. You are absolutely right: normally on SUSHI Sunday, we do present only the Japanese menu card (mainly) with our sushi dishes. But on that day, several guests and a pregnant lady walked in spontaneousely and have asked us whether... More

Did Take-Out from Yen's. We are usually quite picky with the quality of sushi and were not disappointed by this. Everything was very fresh and high quality and produced meticulously. We had a shell fish allergy and we got separate containers to accommodate this. Was even a pleasure waiting for the food, enjoying a glass of wine while waiting. Definitely... More

Simply an extraordinary place. The food is incredible with a very nice Japan like presentation. The prices are very acceptable as well. A wonderful evening in perspective. Only minus point : the wine list. If you read this comment, yen's team, please try to improve it a bit.

Thank R N
