Sounds great. The restaurant is on Birmensdorferstrasse not Triemlistrasse.

The restuarant is booked for 2nd Nov and I reserved for 18 people - hopefully a good turn-out . . .especially as `The Fed` is leaving us . . .

You should be sadder for the fact that I'm going to win all the quiz prizes!

Re: The A-Z of Dinig in Zurich

Well as our duty is to try and ensure your cullinary satisfaction, Prof. Taratonga and I went along to the restaurant last week, in order to try it out.
I have to say that both the food and service were excellent.
We discussed the A-Z event with one of the owners and she offered us a set menu of 39.50 CHF which includes various Tibetan dishes and also a soup starter and a desert.
There was also a more extensive menu available at 49.50 CHF but to be honest the cheaper menu looked more than adequate.
She told us that it is based on `all you can eat` - which actually makes the restaurant look excellent value for money.
We decided on the 39,50 CHF menu and concluded that if anyone still wanted more, they could order extra individual dishes.
I could print the menu if anyone is interested of course but I can assure you that it looks very good.
