The drinks were good but not outstanding, the service of the slow side. Therefore the place was very expensive. I was there with a good friend, so we still had a good time.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 January 2017

Even though I've passed the Metropol hundreds of times I never entered because it looked too snobby for my taste. Decided to have a go at the Japanese restaurant and was very impressed. Shared tempura and a sushi boat with my husband. Both were beautifully presented and delicious. I can't vouch for authenticity because I've never eaten in Japan -... More

Had dinner here last night and even though I don't think this place is on par with HATO or Alice Choo in terms of cuisine, it's a solid Japanese fusion place. We had a variety of sharing plates to start off with (fried mushroom, tempura prawns, sesame eggplant) which were very tasty, except the eggplant which was bizarrely tasteless. The... More

One of the best suhsi Restaurants in town. Quite an exerimental menu, good variety. Very fresh fish and I was really impressed by the maki (especially with the snow crab and Beef truffle). Portions are perfect and value for Money. I liked the ceviche, the Sushis, black cod and we tried a few Starters in our visits and all of... More

Metropol is where Japanese meets modern interior decor. The dishes we had (spicy eggplant, gyoza, miso soup, salmon) were delicious. The amuse bouche - edamame - where a bit fatty which is unusual given they are just heated up in steaming water. The service was very attentive and nice. The only thing I'd say is that we waited a bit... More

Restaurant Metropole is just off Bahnhofstrasse, opposite the Swiss National Bank building, and near the riverside /lakeside walks. The bar is a cozy hangout for coffee, beer, and after work/shopping hours. The Restaurant is a good place for Euro/Japanese Food. The Sushi and Shashimi plates are very nice. Friendly waiters and widely spaced tables allow for privacy among friends.

Located at the end of the Bahnofstrasse this fusion place is prefect for a business lounge as the table are well separated giving you good privacy. Their wienerschnitzel is one of the best I ever had!

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
