Time Out says

Sample modern Japanese cuisine, as well as exquisite sushi, at this serene, cherry blossom-filled restaurant off Zurich’s Paradeplatz.

The riot of cherry blossom that greets you as you enter Metropol, a stylish restaurant occupying a jaw-dropping neo-Baroque building off Zurich’s Paradeplatz, sets the scene for what follows. Metropol cuisine is influenced by East Asia, with its menu featuring exquisite sushi and sashimi concocted by a Thai sushi master, as well as a range of modern Japanese-inspired house dishes, such as black cod with Udon noodles. Don’t miss the ‘Green Gold’, a fresh wasabi paste made with Japanese radish from the Izu Peninsula. Exciting blends of flavours – think chocolate and ginger or algae and sesame – pack a punch, while the surroundings are the epitome of serene. All tumbling chandeliers, spotlighting and slick mahogany hardwood, the minimalist interiors devised by designer Iria Degen are cosy rather than cold, with tables set in generous spaces that allow for privacy and make Metropol ideal for business lunches. Book one of the tables with couches to enjoy dinner in sumptuous comfort. There is also a café bar (its freshly squeezed juices are a winner) and event spaces.
