If you are looking for a vege lunch or dinner in Zurich this is definitely the place. Good location, big choice from the buffet. I would say it's a bit pricy for vege dishes, but still within a good price limit.

I won't go into details on the cafeteria like service model - other reviews have done. What I will say, there is a WIDE of vegetarian options. From Mac and cheese / potato gratin to stir fry seitan and crispy kale salads. So just because is vegetarian doesn't mean it is healthy. But this great for a group or if... More

Dear LMH303 Thank you for the review and the nice compliments. Our slogan is "healthy indulgence since 1898" and therefore our offer reaches from very healthy to pleasurable (and sometimes less healthy). We are aware of that but loads of our guests love the less healthy dishes... But our focus for new developed dishes is clearly on the more healthy... More

I visit the restaurant for many years and the service is always good and friendly. All my friends from the Middle East UAE like it very much. Only one remark - often a bit hectic and if you can try to go there before 12h or 19h.

We come here all the time and the food is delicious, healthy and you don't even notice it's vegetarian! The buffet is especially great as you can try many new dishes according to your preferences. Great juices and sweet deserts too!

Our guide recommended this restaurant to us. This is a vegetarian restaurant. The food is delicious. You can choose to eat from the buffet by weight or order off the menu. My son had the veggie burger and I had the gnocchi. Both were delicious. We also had the seasonal lemonade which was raspberry. The service was good and I... More

Nice vegan aperitivo with good selection of food. It's a bit expensive so don't charge to much your dish. Of course is a place to try.

We went for dinner with colleagues from work and really enjoyed the experience. You can order meal a la carte or take it from the buffet, where you can choose more than forty different options and you pay based on the weight of your meal! We had dinner from the buffet and the house white wine. No dessert or coffee.... More

Good restaurant, leckere indische Küche! A very broad and good food range. Each time I went eat there I really enjoyed the quality and diversity. I wouldbe possible for me to become a vegi if I had the Hitl cook at home😄
