First Review by DonPedro

Expensive but really nice - Edit

It's Zürich, it's expensive... But the buffet is really big, with lots of vegan options (clearly indicated). Also, it's right next to the railway station.

Pros: big variety, also for vegans

Cons: expensive

one of my favourites in Zürich! - Edit

With Hiltl being the first vegetarian restaurant worldwide it definitely deserves being so famous and popular.
The first thing I noticed is that with all the hiltl restaurants the location and interior is always spot on, especially this one: Hiltl Sihlpost is in an old post office which is incorporated in the interior design brilliantly. Charge your phone in letter boxes and pay for your food where people used to pay for sending letters or parcels all around the world. A very nice place to eat, inside is my favourite because I love the industrial style it's kept in but outside is just as nice, especially on a sunny summer day.
The food of course is excellent. I highly recommend the "Sellerie Schnitzel" and "Gehacktes mit Hörnli". For those who like it a little more spicy I suggest you try the Samosas. My personal favourite, of course, is dessert: The Soya Chocolate Mousse is perfect for vegan chocolate-lovers like myself and the Zuccini-Chocolate Cake is something every cake-person should try (don't worry, it doesn't acutally taste like zuccini).
Another notable thing is that still water is offered for free, The only thing I do not like all that much is that the cups for the free water are plastic. It would be better if there would be reusable cups offered for eating in and plastic ones for take-away.
Anyway, an amazing place to eat that vegs and also non vegs (!) in Zürich must try.

Pros: Clearly labelled vegan food, allergies, etc., Option to dine in or take away, Very quick self service

Cons: plastic cups for free water

huge buffet, huge selection, beautiful interior design - Edit

I love eating at hiltl sihlpost because you don't have to order from a menuecard but you can choose by eye and put on your plate what ever looks good to you.
they don't only serve special salads, maindishes and desserts but also very unique drinks.
What makes this restaurant even more special is it's interior design. The restaurant used to be a post office and they intigrated the atmosphere and the look of it perfectly.
I'll be back :)

Great post-industrial location right downtown Zurich.
Food has good quality as the drinks. Try the hot kurkuma latte (kind of golden milk with cinnamon) or the amazing hot ginger tee. I just love this place!

Pros: location, buffet - tab water free , atmosphere

Cons: staff can be more helpful at the cashier , bit pricy but this is Swiss

lecker wie gewohnt von Hiltl - Edit

Das Essen ist einfach nur vom feinsten. Das Lokal ist nicht so gemütlich wie das original Hiltl, eher wenn man schnell etwas essen will. Das Buffet ist auch längst nicht so gross, aber immer noch sehr reichhaltig und hat auch genug für Veganer.
