“chic hamburger place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We were told by friend of the existence of a restaurant serving very good hamburgers at Stockerstrasse.

We found it one evening at a corner, normal its name is Korner. Decoration is simple but elegant, we regretted that lights were set at a romantic tone atmosphere - for a burger place is not so adequate !

Yes, the burger menu is long and tempting - that is positive.
No, side dishes are charged extra, this is to obviously to assist you in your diet .... but who eats a burger without fries?
And no to pay the sauce on top, why ? surely a concept to make us pay more ? indeed, as at the end you have to pay about CHF 37 to get a burger.

Negative points: almost no starters to choose apart from salads (at main course prices) and overall food was average

Wine list is just okay, too much overpriced for the selection (they multiply by four or even five times market prices). White, red and bubbles, no rosé?

Service was very good and very friendly, thank you Tamara you enlightened our evening.

In summary, it is just an expensive place to be seen rather than a good restaurant to eat.

“Very good burgers ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

In my opinion the burgers are very good. It ranks in my top two burger places in Zurich. It's also a nice place to go for a afterworld drink as it has cool atmosphere.

“Great burgers, good atmosphere and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

We've come twice to Korner now, and in my view it's a step above both Helvti diner or Holy Cow (although both of those are decent), as a relaxed place for a reliable burger and beer in Zurich. A great menu of options, far more extensive than the others (including 2 good vegetarian options), and a decent beer selection, plus we had friendly service (by Swiss standards) = a reliably enjoyable night out. Some other folks have complained about long waits and patchy quality, but we were all pretty happy overall. Yes, it's expensive, but everything outside of McDonald's is expensive in this town (for burgers, fries, a salad, several beers each, plus a couple of other drinks/coffees, we paid CHF226 for a group of 5). If you're feeling flush and want a nice night-cap, stroll around the corner to the atmospheric Park Hyatt bar.

“Excellent burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Excellent burgers, great atmosphere and good value for money. A favourite place for burgers with friends or business colleagues. Try the Scoville burger if you dare. This is one hot dish. Note, it can get a bit loud and noisy when full.

“No value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Nice concept of having burgers hand made. Sadly, the end result is a very poor products. Burgers are very plain. Plates come half empty with the burger and almost nothing else not even few salad leaves to decorate. Salad or chips had to be ordered extra even if the (plain) burger costs up to 24 CHF! The chips were over cooked in old oil.
On the positive side, the decoration and service were good. Yet, a Mc Donald or Burger King burger tastes 10 time better.
