Restaurant-Zurich-22

A friendly welcome upon entering the establishment always makes a difference. We take a seat at one of the front cooking areas right by the Teppan grill. The restaurant is fairly quiet on a Wednesday evening. Located in the heart of Zurich’s financial district, this place seems to be one that attracts crowds for lunch and directly after work. Looking around, the whisk-shaped lamps and minimalistic furniture creates a modern and urban atmosphere – at the same time preserving the Asian atmosphere. The gigantic Kuala Lumpur MRT (public transport) map quickly catches my attention. In the background a movie about the city is playing on repeat. Memories of my time in Kuala Lumpur…

With a fairly wide selection of Asian brews, I opt for the Tiger Beer (3 dl CHF 7.00) while my friend orders a Weizen (3 dl CHF 7.00). There is a misunderstanding with the drinks order, which however was handled very well by the front-of-house staff. The correct drinks were served following a friendly apology. That’s how to do it! Skimming through the dinner menu the choice is an obvious one. All-you-can-eat Teppanyaki (CHF 49.90 per person) it is! We start with a hearty Miso Soup, which is included in the all-you-can-eat arrangement. The first set of grilled dishes is a mix of different specialties offered. These include chicken, beef, pork, prawns and salmon. Allowing flexibility, patrons can select and omit from the platters as desired. Steamed rice and egg-fried-rice is served as a side dish. The smell of what’s on the grill slowly diffuses in the room around us. The dishes arrive – a feast for all senses. A variety of sauces – including some spicy ones – as well as ginger and fried garlic are available to indulge in. If you overdo it with the chilli, it’s good to know that tap water is available free of charge. While the chicken has been grilled well, I added more seasoning to them. My personal favourite has to be the beef and salmon, whose taste suggests good quality cuts. The tofu on the grill is also a combination that works very well.

The total bill amounts to CHF 113.80 and so we leave the KL Teppanyaki satisfied and very full indeed. The friendly downtown casual Asian grill restaurant that blends Japan’s Teppanyaki dishes with KL style grill culture is not only a place for a quick lunch.
