Lilys, already overpriced, have now reduced the quantity most noticeable in their takeaways. The salad quantity has almost halved and main meal portions have been reduced by about 1/4. Disappointing behavior from a Zürich staple. I even have the impression sauces are less rich and quality dropped. Once a favourite and sadly lost its level.

Food was great but service was one of the poorest I have ever encountered. Unfriendly, slow, dirty tables and did not take away dishes when we had finished. Not recommended at all.

Delicious foot, nice ambiance but a little bit loud. Recommended for a "fast" Dinner but not recommendable for a long, relaxed Dinner.

Very broad variety of dishes. The food comes really quickly, in big portions & is delicious! We had some curries that were really good!

We have been going to Lily's for over 15 years, rediscovered it this summer and very pleased to find one of our old friends still (again) working there. Menu has chnaged for the better, we now have our selection of favourites to share. Gets very busy for dinner, but bookings not possible.

The food is very fresh and the staff is quick. It is not a place to stay longer, as it doesn't have much atmosphere. On lunch reservations are needed!

Asian/Indian food of great quality! Loud and vibrant atmosphere, always very busy in the evenings and popular within a younger crowd! Friendly staff and great service!

Very cool and tidy experience that is all about what you eat and drink. When you visit Lily's you should focus on choosing your dish and enjoy it with friends or others round you - you will be sitting at big long tables with others so its easy to meet someone new. food is superb starting with soups and main...

The restaurant appears to be a factory (or some kind of industrial building) made into an attractive setting for dining. The ceiling is about 30 feet and has many windows so there is plenty of natural light. The room is decorated with several Asian objects. For example it has replicas of the terracotta soldiers from China. The staff was friendly... More

The menu reads well but overall this is a fusion of south-east asian cuisines where nothing really stands out. There are interesting sounding dishes but the execution is average. A tofu stir fry dish was bland. Pork in breadcrumbs and some Japanese fusion potato salad was ok. Dim sum-esque dumplings were good. A thai style beef noodle dish was ok... More
