Extremely crowd restaurant on Saturday evening. Excellent food choices from vegan, no gluten etc. You won't miss meat at all. What I didn't like is hectic and loud atmosphere staff without patience and very very slow (could be that it was Saturday). Personaly I don't like this kind of "train station bar approach" Red curry was OK but as a... More

I often go to Hiltl for their unique vegetarian buffet. There are countless options. Everything is so delicious, it's not easy to realize it's vegetarian food. When you're in Zurich, definitely give it a go. Reservation is essential, since it's quite popular and demand is very high.

The food was average but the price good for what you get. Very noisy on a Saturday night and wouldn't recommend it to couples. Missing any good vibes

If you eat at Hiltl, you will walk out and be surprised by the fact you didn't miss the meat... great selection of fresh prepared vegetarian and vegan dishes. It is a little bit pricy but definitely worth it! Best part about the restaurant: it is fur free so if you plan to wear your favorite dead animal for lunch:... More

Hiltl is my favorite place whenever I am in Zürich for lunch time. If you opt for healthy, nutritious and delicious food Hiltl is the best choice ever. They offer a big buffet where you can mix and match everything. Every dish is marked with its ingredients which is comfortable in case of allergies.

It had an excellent spicy level, with a good amount ginger. I can highly recommend it. My companion went for the tomato soup which was round and well... More

We had a sit down lunch at Hiltl Zurich and the food was really, really good. The Crispy Tofu Salad and Hot Colonial plate was pure delight. Pasta with tomato sauce and aubergine were just so-so though. Expensive, but Zurich is an expensive city. We would love to be back to try more items from menu. Buffet options looked really... More
