I have to admit I was skeptical going into an all vegetarian restaurant as I enjoy eating meat but oh my goodness this place was amazing. We ate from the buffet (which costs according to weight) and there were so many delicious dishes to choose from. I got a mixture of curries and pasta, then went back for dessert later.... More

Tremendous range of all kinds of veggies prepared in a wide variety of ways. Both hot and cold choices for all different taste buds, Due to central location quite busy at lunchtime when we visited. Not particularly expensive by Zurich standards if you take care when loading your plate. Otherwise you may find yourself spending more than intended!

A hype place in Zurich. Hiltl has made Vegetarian food popular. The management concept of Hiltl is amazing; yet the price level is too high for the selection and quality of food.

Big selection of veggie dishes. Both as buffet restaurant or as a la carte restaurant. Not particularly healthy food, but it taste really good. Quite expensive if you are not used to what to put on your plate before they weight it. Busy atmosphere during the whole day and eve. Mixed crowed of guests. Try avoid busy lunchtime. A big... More

My favorite vegetarian restaurant on the planet! Since this is in Switzerland, it's pricey, but worth the money. My favorite: the Indian food from the buffet, or a thali to share. This is a place where you can bring a large group of people (including everyone from children to grandparents) and they'll all find something they'll like from the buffet.... More

Even if you are not vegetarian , you would love this place ! It is a wonderful buffet with cold salads etc, warm disches and desserts. You choose what you want, you go and weigh it and get the tickets to pay. The food is just delicious . I recommend to call to reserve, it was very full !

I've been here several times in the last few years. The food was always quite good, and I guess for zurich reasonably priced. They have a menu or you can choose freely from the buffet. I always take something from the menu, because this way somebody will make sure it looks nice in the plate :) There's nothing I cannot... More
