I have never saw so visited restaurant... More

my son is vegetarian, so in zurich we decided to try the supposed oldest vegetarian restaurant in the world. it is really excellent, with a choice of a la carte or the buffet. we had a mixture, and were very pleased. all of the meals were delicious and well presented. the service was very good.

I visited this restaurant after hearing so much about it early this week. If you like a canteen setting this is the place for you. The first floor has a la carte but is the same food as you see ( well mostly) below. We choose the weigh your dish option and the all you can eat ( 57chf). The... More

This is one of the most unique vegetarian places we have been to in the world. Great food that you can get by weight and it has a wide variety of foods. Good family meal with a nice atmosphere.

Even though I find this restaurant a bit pricey, I love going there. The variety of dishes are amazing. Vegans will delight in the creative food options. The home made lemonade and ice tea taste great. I prefer sitting downstairs were the self serving buffet is as walking upstairs with a full plate is a bit tricky. You can also... More

Even a hard-core non-veg like me loved this veg restaurant. Most of the dishes are a cross between European and Asian(Indian/Thai) veg food and the outcome is lip-smacking. There is a wide variety of dishes to choose from. There are also provisions for having buffer meals (but they are very expensive). We had ordered dishes from the menu card. I... More

What an amazing place! Being a person with a severe dairy allergy I often find it difficult to find good options. Not here everything I tried was amazing! Highly recommend!

one of the few vegetarian restaurants I make a destination out of. the chef's are less concerned with 'recreating' meat dishes than creating new tastes from existing styles of cuisine. great place to escape traditional swiss cuisine on a long trip.
