Nice surprise! We were looking for a restaurant and ended up at Shaba by chance. The setting is very nice and the atmosphere really pleasant with the water wall and the séparés where you can sit on the floor. The staff is so friendly and funny, it is a real pleasure. I had the poulet satay and the pad thai,... More

Ordering a starter for CHF 24.- getting 1 piece of chicken Satay, 1 mini bowl of papaya salad, 1 slice of extremly thin filled bread, and 1 minimini slice of vegetable strudel. No reaction of the boss after telling him. Food quality ok, but sorry....that is by far too expensive even for Zurich!

We found this restaurant via Yelp. We were going to eat at White Elephant which was near the hotel, but thought we would walk through the neighborhood and look for something more in our budget. The food was tasty and the staff was very friendly. We sat in the patio which was surrounded by apartment buildings. We were really enjoying... More

I have to admit I was a bit surprised at first when entering this restaurant. The decor looks nice from the outside, but at a closer look the mish-mash of Moroccan style alcoves doesn't make much sense in a modern restaurant. The food is equally surprising: what could the serve in a place with Moroccan alcoves? But Thai, of course!... More

I found the Shaba just by chance as I went out for lunch with a friend of mine. And it´s the only place, where I had so many great evenings - either with friends or with my darling. So what is really special at this place? - It´s quite central at the Limmatplatz. - Food selection is limited (as in... More

This is just the best restaurant I've ever been to. The food is incredibly good and even healthy, the interior design is wonderful with its asian-persian touch. But the most outstanding is the service: the team is so nice, very friendly, helps with finding the perfect meal for you and makes honest and good wine recommendations and even special wishes...

It is hard to find a place in Zurich where they really care to make you feel comfortable as a guest. This place goes even further, Sani and his team try to make you feel at home and with friends. And they do it successfully!! It is for sure not the cheapest place but for Zurich standards it not exaggerated.... More

Recently went here to have dinner with some colleagues. From the outside, the restaurant does not look very appealing, but inside it looks like a proper restaurant with a warm atmosphere, and the staff was very welcoming: we immediately felt at home. Unfortunately the food was a bit disappointing. Most of the dishes on the menu were pretty standard stuff... More
