The restaurant was very busy, but we were able to sit at the bar. We got to watch pizzas being made. Our pizza and salad were both delicious. I don’t eat ham, but my Mom does. They were able to accommodate us and put ham on half.

A mish mash of food options. Mostly Indian like pakoras and daal. But not authentic and too bland. Too pricey in the name of vegetarian. I would rather eat at a proper Indian vegetarian restaurant in Zurich, instead of wasting money here.

Absolutely delighted to finally have great vegan food after traveling around Switzerland with barely any vegan food in sight. The location is also fairly convenient right next to the main Zurich HB station. I did take out and it’s an easy enough process. Scoop out food that you want into a takeaway cardboard container (eco-friendly), and bring it to the cash register to get the top for your container and for your food to be weighed. The buffet options were *numerous*, and they even have desserts at the buffet counter. It was like being a kid in a candy store. I also most appreciated the various ingredient/allergen icons, which were so helpful for someone who has any specific food intolerances. I liked it so much that I came back for dinner after taking out for lunch. Not to mention, the service staff were so friendly! The price is a little higher than I would’ve liked but I think that’s just general Swiss prices all around. Highly recommended, even if you’re not vegetarian or vegan.

I think Hiltl always has a great selection with lots of vegetarian and vegan options. What I can definitely recommend is the brownie with an oat milk cappuccino. However, I have to deduct a star because the dishes are very greasy. Even in 2024, healthy fats don't seem to be taken into account here, which means that the food is barely healthier than fast food.

An absolute no go! We, three people, drank coffee in the Hiltl after 9 p.m. A service employee came to the table with plastic cups and asked us to empty the drinks, hot drinks of course, from the cups into the plastic cups. Reason: she needs the dishes to go in the dishwasher. That is not how it works! What kind of gastronomy is this? Incident on December 12, 2023

I've been eating at Hiltl for years and have always been satisfied, definitely worth 5 stars. In the last 3 years, however, the a discretion buffet has unfortunately become more and more expensive; a few years ago it was still 56.- With the increased parking prices it is slowly becoming too expensive for me and I can no longer afford it or maybe only once a year. Furthermore, vegan food is now too seasoned. The savory dishes have too much salt and the desserts have so much sugar that you can eat just a little bit of it and you'll be full

I don't understand the hype about these Tibits/Hiltl buffets. Food is okay (not great, but at least a good selection). But I paid 48 CHF (!!!) for a single plate + beer. No dessert, no starter. NO service (you have to get and weigh everything yourself), the kitchen has very little effort (no à la carte, just whole bowls of the same stuff, don't serve anything or anything), staff is always fussing about you (they want you). I think we got out as quickly as possible), and the ambience is more reminiscent of a Silent Hill horror hospital than a restaurant. Old dirty tiles, concrete, strange unclean mirrors, and extremely cramped seating. Okay once, but it doesn't have to happen again.

It is self-service at the buffet. I found the place uncomfortable. Tables very close to each other. With many visitors there is hardly any space to get to the table. Reminds me of a waiting room. You have to order and pay for drinks at the buffet. By the time you get back to the table, the food is no longer very warm. But the food itself was very good. The buffet was very rich. It's a shame, the ambience devalues ​​this.

For a self-service restaurant it is expensive. e.g. 1 fruit juice drink, iced tea with ? CHF7.- Eating by weight ...what I feel about myself; About the same portion as in my slow-food restaurant = same price and in Hiltl, I have to get my own food and endure the hall-like noise and confinement. Seen it once! Food wasn't overwhelming. The coffee is also too expensive. ...and lastly, just vegetarian.....every now and then, nothing against that

Awesome vegetarian and vegan food, you can basically eat your way around the world from Thai curry to samosas, and pakoras; a variety of cold, salads, veggie pâté and the like. Juices, cocktails, mock tails and wine by the glass, as well as a full selection of hot beverages are available. Outdoor patio when the weather is nice, the only downside is that in Switzerland, people smoke on patios, so look and make sure the wind is blowing the other way. Takeout containers available, and delightfully cheeky graphics delineating the male and female washrooms. This branch of the main restaurant which has been open for 125 years does a great job. If it’s your first time in Switzerland, you probably don’t realize everything is about double the price you’re used to in North America. Take half the portion you think you’d like so you don’t get sticker shock when you see the currency conversion on your credit card. The celery schnitzel is absolutely phenomenal, I like it with a little bit of the pesto smeared on top. Gluten appetit!

I bought take away for over 100 francs. I know that there are no shelves. The service (the experience would otherwise be better) was somehow confused. She didn't offer me a lid, which I received upon asking. She didn't help me pack. Her Kolkegin said that she first had to sell the juices that were expiring today; As a customer in this price range, I don't need to know. Otherwise I like to go to this restaurant for a morning coffee or a take away. However, the staff needs to be better trained again.

If an iced tea costs more than a bite to eat, then something is definitely wrong. 7 chf for a little flavored water? Where do we live? The hot food was also cold and dry by the time I got there. Service, quite inattentive despite little activity. My conclusion is that people are cutting back on staff and hiring young people for little money and then either don't get them trained properly or they just don't want to work. I think it's a shame that the whole thing has lost a bit of its soul and the prices have really risen enormously. But this restaurant can't help it either.

The old post office was rebuilt in a simple and Spartan style in a raw industrial style. For the first-time visitor, there is an architectural picture that takes some getting used to. Apart from that, the venue offers a purely vegetarian buffet, which claims to be the oldest in the world. Nevertheless, for us meat-eating tourists, it was very surprising how well the V meals were prepared. Keep it up, to the team. MFG the tourists

It’s a totally different experience. All dishes are vegetarian or Vegan. Indian and Arabic available as well. It’s like you collect what you want, how much you want and finally pay at the counter for the weight of the food you picked. It’s 5.5 CHF per 100 grams. So be smart when you select your items. Take away available as well with paper bowls and plates. That too weighed and priced. Most dishes taste good. That’s an added plus point. Suitable for vegetarian Indians and Muslims who want vegetarian as Halal cannot be ensured at all restaurants. I missed the Arabic bread/ Pita bread. Otherwise a wholesome experience.

Let me just start by saying that I've been a fan of hiltl for about 10 years. I love meat and am usually against visiting these sorts of "healthy hipster" places. But Hiltl is different. Their food is amazing (especially their tartar) and the drinks they make are quite good too. Last time I went the service was also so kind to offer me a drink they had made as a wrong order. The place can get a bit loud and crammed but that belongs to the Hiltl experience. It's definitely nothing fancy but i love coming here alone after an exhausting day.
