Amazing variety of food. Meatballs with no meat and chicken nuggets with no chicken tasted delicious and had consistency of meat but no meat!! Very delicious and multiple trips necessary to try all the variety of dishes.

I visited Hiltl multiple times, because a friend likes it. It offers a big choice of vege food, basically everyone can find there something he/she may like. I can recommend home made ice teas. Unfortunately, to me most of the food seems like fast food.

This vegetarian restaurant offers a large variety for all vegetarian tastes, from an upmarket restaurant experience, through to cafe options, from a number of outlets throughout Zurich. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

I have visited Hiltl a couple of times now and I always enjoy going there. If your getting your food at the buffet, it's CHF 4.50 per 100 grams. If you're being served, it's 5.50 and you can order à la carte. Highly recommend, also for vegans (as I am one) - everything is perfectly labeled.

Three times Hiltl is present in Zurich: a garden terrace near main station,also near near main station at the old post office, last not least as a old traditional vegetarian restaurant,-over 100 years- at Sihlstrasse/Annahof. An international team of chefs are doing miracles. All main languages are spoken, even chinese. The atmosphere is a wild mixture, also the people dropping... More

Interesting to see a vegetarian and century-old restaurant at the heart of Zurich city and always crowded, which is a plus.

We frequently visit Hilti, because it is veggie, it is tasty, it is fun and it is value for money (for Zurich!) If you visit Zurich this is the first resto you have to visit. It is unique. What I would welcome would be better priced and better quality wines. The house wines are not that great.

Wow! the service food and atmosphere at this amazing restaurant for vegetarians deserves every accolade it can get. It has take away options (buffet, sandwiches), casual help-yourself-to buffet dining and serviced dining with either teh buffet option or special meals in a comprehensive menu. All items on the buffet and in the menu clearly state whether it is vegan, has... More

We came into town late on Sunday and were looking for a place to grab a bite. We're not vegetarian but still loved the food. Good curry but after the fact wish I tried the buffet after reading the reviews. Give it a shot
