Good vegetarian or vegetable-rich restaurant in Zurich?

Hi everyone:

I have tried Google and recommendations from friends, but have had no luck in finding a good vegetarian restaurant in Zurich. So my vegetarian friend always ends up eating plain pasta or an iceberg salad.

I know that there is a vegetarian restaurant next to the Hauptbanhof, but it is always closed when we're ready to eat.

Does anyone have any recommendations? It doesn't have to be fully vegetarian--just a place that has a good selection of non-meat dishes. I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

Tibits: www.tibits.ch/d/
Hitlt: www.hiltl.ch

Not necessarily cheap. But seriously vegetarian and enough options that you won't feel like a rabbit.

As Swisspea says. Hiltl rocks, great and extensive buffet and their à la carte is also very good. Great ambience and whilst not cheap, you get a great atmosphere as well the best veggie food in Zürich.

There is nothing better than Hiltil and Tibits, infact, every now and then I crave their food..........like now for instance.....

Khans in the Neiderdorf, is a good Indian restaurant.

Re: Good vegetarian or vegetable-rich restaurant in Zurich?

A lot of useful info! I have been to Hiltl and loved it, ll try the rest.
Since I dont eat(obvious) egg either, I always end up eating butterbrezel when I am out and hungry

There is a Tibits in Winterthur as well as the one in Zurich; vegetarian buffet with tonnes of variety. Highly recommend.

Most restaurants can usually make a Gemuseteller if you're desperate, and rather than a Butterpretzel, you can usually grab a salad or plate of veggies at cafeterias above most dept stores (Jelmoli, Manor, Coop City).

Asian restaurants usually have plenty of vegetarian choices too I find.

Good luck!

Lisa

Re: Good vegetarian or vegetable-rich restaurant in Zurich?

Yes, Tibits & Hiltl, but they do sometimes seem a little overpriced to me, even though the food is delicious.
You can also find some other places here: http://www.happycow.net/europe/switzerland/zurich/

Tibits always has vegan options - have been to the one in Zurich and it is really quite good even though it is a buffet-style place.

I quite like the Hiltl. They are vegetarian and have a decent vegan range as far as I remember.

That one is great too - I heard that it is actually run by the same people who own Tibits?
