Best Restaurants in Kreis 3, Zurich


In Kreis 3, you will find more of a residential area extended through the lower part of Uetliberg Mountain. There are plenty of hiking paths to enjoy the pure Swiss Nature. Kreis 3 has also become a great spot for casual restaurants catering to International Cuisine. There are plenty of good eats here and I am constantly checking and exploring them! Have a look for yourself…


Southern Fried Chicken
Price Range: $$

Being from the States and loving America’s Southern Comfort food, when I heard a Fried Chicken Restaurant was arriving in Zurich, I knew it would be love at first bite. Yardbird is Zurich’s first Southern Fried Chicken Restaurant and its owners also have brilliant restaurants ‘The Bite Gourmet Burgers’ and ‘Brisket Southern BBQ’. The Swiss chicken is brined for 24 hours, tossed in spices and double-fried with buttermilk! You have choices of wings, 4 pieces, burgers or even wraps. There is also a variety of multiple sauces and tastes. My Minnesota Mama visits me quite often, and this is the one place she asks to go to… TWICE! Open for dinners only.

Recommended Dish:
Seoul Style: tossed in a delicious roasted soy garlic & apple vinegar sauce Fr. 28.5
Mama’s Favourite: Parmesan Garlic: coated in a homemade garlic butter, topped with parmesan Fr. 28.5

Japanese Ramen & Udon Cuisine
Price Range: $$

This place truly brings you to Tokyo with the fantastically random decorations including anime figurines & saki bottles. The open kitchen creates a wonderful atmosphere before tasting their exceptional dishes. This is a place to come to if you enjoy true and authentic Japanese Cuisine. The Ramen is imported from Japan & the fermented rice wine can not be missed! I truly couldn’t recommend it more.

Tasty Tip: The mixed veggie and meat Gyoza is a great starter before enjoying one of their soups

Once a year, there is an exceptional event called Food Zurich in which many restaurants, cafes & bars host events for all to see what amazingness they have to offer. Hide & Seek was one of the places my husband and I decided to explore for a ‘Dine Under the Stars’ 5 course meal experience. Needless to say, there were no regrets! Hide & Seek is a restaurant located in the gorgeous hotel of Atlantis by Giardino. Their goal is to explore all tastes to create an unforgettable and sensual experience with each dish. This is a great place for a romantic dinner for two.
