The food is delicious and there is lots of different food served so anyone can find something for themselves. The prices are reasonable even fro Switzerland. The ambient is warm and nice. It is perfect for meetings or catching up with friends.

Hard to begin but this place has absolutely anything and any kind of food that a vegetarian could possibly want (sorry nothing for carnivores!). There is a self-service section off the street that is exceptional (did not try the sit down service which I believe is more expensive). The food is laid out in a long "bar" with vietnamese, Indian,... More

There is something delicious for everyone. The best indian curries I have ever had. The house red and the bellini were very good. Our waiter was polite and professional. We had reserved and I liked the atmosphere upstairs very much. We loved Hiltl and had a wonderful evening.

I love the food at hiltl. Every menu I had was delicious and they also awesome ice teas/lemonades. I never can decide what to eat due to the many great options. The service is sometimes really nice and sometimes not so good. It's always really busy, so a reservation is recommended.

Extremely crowd restaurant on Saturday evening. Excellent food choices from vegan, no gluten etc. You won't miss meat at all. What I didn't like is hectic and loud atmosphere staff without patience and very very slow (could be that it was Saturday). Personaly I don't like this kind of "train station bar approach" Red curry was OK but as a... More

I often go to Hiltl for their unique vegetarian buffet. There are countless options. Everything is so delicious, it's not easy to realize it's vegetarian food. When you're in Zurich, definitely give it a go. Reservation is essential, since it's quite popular and demand is very high.

The food was average but the price good for what you get. Very noisy on a Saturday night and wouldn't recommend it to couples. Missing any good vibes

If you eat at Hiltl, you will walk out and be surprised by the fact you didn't miss the meat... great selection of fresh prepared vegetarian and vegan dishes. It is a little bit pricy but definitely worth it! Best part about the restaurant: it is fur free so if you plan to wear your favorite dead animal for lunch:... More
