Michelin Star Success for The Chedi Andermatt

11 October 2017

Named The Japanese Restaurant the restaurant offers authentic Japanese cuisine including sushi, sashimi, tempura and teppanyaki, which is prepared in front of guests at the teppan grill. Seating just 46, diners can enjoy an intimate gastronomic experience. The Japanese Restaurant also offers the most extensive sake selection in Switzerland.

The Japanese Restaurant already holds 16 GaultMillau points and Executive Chef Dietmar Sawyere is proud to have brought further culinary acclaim to The Chedi Andermatt, saying: “To receive a Michelin star is a very great honour. I would like to dedicate this award to the team, for their commitment and professionalism.”


Working alongside Chef Sawyere, the award is confirmation of the continued creativity and passion of Japanese sushi master Taniguchi Kazuki and teppanyaki chef Yoshizumi Yutaro, whose authentic cuisine is combined with creative flair.

The General Manager, Jean-Yves Blatt said: “We are now one of only two Japanese restaurants in Switzerland to be given this accolade and we are truly proud that The Chedi Andermatt’s concept has received this recognition.”


The Japanese Restaurant joins MEGU at The Alpina Gstaad as only the second Japanese restaurant in Switzerland to be awarded a Michelin star.
