Stopped in for lunch and found a great, friendly atmosphere. The food was a buffet (pay by weight) of many different kinds of food, many vegan and all with very descriptive codes of what they had in them. Everything was so delicious we grabbed dessert to go and definitely want to return to try the things we missed on the... More

It is always a pleasure to dine in this place. Their concept is very unique and they are very famous in Switzerland. It is unbelievable how they have prepared the food so tasty. I can recommend Hiltl Appetizer platter and Indian Thali Platter for the main or just simply go for the buffet. The buffet is paid per 100g and... More

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!

This is a place serving vegetarian food from very long time I understand . The food is really good and with real generous portion of you go a la carte, or with very wide choice if you chose buffet.

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
