“Even if you are not a vegetarian, eat here.”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

The food is innovative, tasty, and a good value by Swiss standards. You have to know how the system works: First make sure there is a place to sit. If the place is getting full, people will leave a coat or something on their seat to mark it. (Preferably not a handbag or backpack though I've seen it done.) Then get your plate and fill it, and take it to the cashier. You are charged by weight. A roll is included so don't weigh your roll. The cashier will take your drink order and put everything on a tray for you. You can also come just for a drink or coffee. This place is a hangout as well as a restaurant. Talk to friends, or sit by the window and watch the crowds go by.

“I wish there was a Tibits was in every city”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

Vegetarian self serve restaurant where you pay for how much you have. The food was delicious and there was such a wide range of choices, hot, cold, sweet, sour, everything you can think of. Free small bread with every meal and supernice staff. Interior decoration was nice too and their marketing stuff about getting vegetarian too !

“Overvalued fast vegetarian food”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

I have been visiting Tibits many times during lunch. The food is ok but the place is usually crowded and way too expensive for what you get. I see Tibits as a quick vegetarian fast food restaurant but they want to be a class higher.
