cheap restaurants in zurich

I think i have not seen thread about this, so here it goes.

Please list all cheap restaurants you know in Zurich or near by. Cheap for Switzerland of course.

For example i was eating quite good spagetti carbonara and pizza in http://www.rest-sternen.ch/ for 9.90 chf each. The promotion is over, but it was ok. Atmosphere maybe was not lovely or anything, but i've seen the kitchen and it was clean and modern.

Promotion lasted for 3 months durning 2009 summer. Now it's pricy again so i don't recommend it.

So maybe you know more offers like this? maybe not that cheap, but something below 20 chf or something for main dish with acceptable quality.

Re: cheap restaurants in zurich

Nimmi's (137 Josef)
Friends Corner (140 Josef)
India grocery for lunch (@ Langstr)

And Mundial in same neighbourhood has chf 25 all-you-can-eat buffet on Sunday evenings. Might pop by there tonight with some friends.

At the top of Josef near the HB, there is also a Thai shop that serves cheap lunches.

And nearby is a Lebanese place that serves cheap, awesome shawarmas and the like (WAY better than the crappy Turkish fast food in Zurich).

You can sit down, but it is more take-away style. Very good. Sorry, no idea what the name is.

No worries, I was curious to know if that (Atrisse) was the place as I pass by it when I am going for my CHEAP LUNCH at the Paninoteca Pentagramma just up the street on Josephstrasse and have always wondered how the food is there.

The panino's at the Pentagramma are wonderful. They cost around 10CHF or less and IMHO are so big you could have half at lunch and half at dinner.

Hot Pasta, Universitätsstrasse 15, 8006 Zurich.

Good Pasta at reasonable prices. Lunch includes soup or salad, pasta, soft drink for about 15 CHF.

http://www.hotpasta.ch/

Also good food for 15CHF or so: the small Indian place in Stampfenbachstrasse.

At Teoh's Asian Restaurant, the lunch cost 15.50sfr quite reasonable. You get 3 different dishes to choose from and you can either combine the dishes with rice or noodles. On Monday they have yummy satay chicken, the best satay in town. Tues and Thurs are usually Thai menus. Teoh Asian Restaurant, Bäckerstrasse 37,8046 Zürich. 044 242 1442.

Re: cheap restaurants in zurich

thank you for all replies.

most of them are lunch restaurants though or kebab-type places.

do you know any reasonable priced restaurants for the evening meal ? it doesn't have to cost 15 chf per person

but something around 50 chf for 2 including drinks would be nice.

Yes that would be nice... it really depends on what you are eating and drinking. You can just make it for circa 50CHF two drinks and two meals at the following places:

Italian - Rosso at the Hardbrücke - if you just have two BASIC pizza's and two drinks then you might be under 50CHF - you MUST RESERVE THOUGH.

Fish&Chips - Rosso's stand at the Hardbrücke on the Geroldstrasse this stand is outside but has a few small tables and benches - no reservations needed.

Asian Fusion - Lily's Stomach Supply on Langstrasse - you cannot reserve, place is usually PACKED and they fit you in on large tables with other people.

Greek - Delicato on Uraniastrasse - excellent Greek food with even better prices.

A restaurant with an beautiful view is the INTERMEZZO restaurant in the Kongresshaus - When there are concerts going on they usually have several reasonably priced SET MENUS (otherwise it is a bit pricey).
During summer the INTERMEZZO is closed and they serve only outside in the PIAZZA restaurant which is not that pricey at all.
Enjoy the PIAZZA while you can (open only in the summer).

I also used my favorite link www.zueritipp.ch - in the "GASTRO" section I filtered on "Gunstig" (cheap) and got a hit for a restaurant called "SCHLAUCH" which has ORGANIC FOOD (menu with soup and salad from 20-25CHF) and a BILLIARD TABLES right in the Niederdorf!!! - Has anyone ever been there?
Here is the link in German.
Here it is (very roughly) translated into English.

Hope this helps.... all this talk about restaurants has made me very hungry...

Hot Pasta has a stall at Hechtplatz (oppisitve of Terrasse at Bellevue) in summer as well.

It's awesome there, but peopler are a bit kind of "30+ wannabe cool and trendy".

Re: cheap restaurants in zurich

The "Rheinfelder Bierhalle" near Central is an amazingly cheap place to get some decent Swiss food. It's not very stilish, to say the least, but you get all kinds of strange and interesting people in there.
