nice food

Tibits offers a buffet of nice food. You can choose what you want and how much. Prize is per gram of food.
Could be more seasoned/flavored for my taste. Just ask for salt.

Pros: good variety of food, nice interiour, friendly staff

Cons: too pricey, too crowded, loud

Unkompliziert und lecker

Tolles Restaurantkonzept mit unkompliziertem und feinem Buffet. Probiere mich meistens durchs ganze Angebot und bin immer begeistert. Nicht nur bietet das Tibits eine riesengrosse Auswahl an, sondern sind die Speisen auch immer richtig lecker. Das Mangomousse vom Dessertbuffet ist himmlisch - mein absoluter Favorit! Ein kleiner Stern Abzug da hin und wieder einzelne Speisen etwas trocken sind (durchs Warmhalten) und weil nicht alles vegan ist. Dafür sind auch meine nicht-veganen Begleitungen immer begeistert vom Angebot😉

Great buffet selection

Also here the buffet selection is really great. The food is super fresh and tastes super good. I made three rounds at the buffet because I could not decide what to take😄

It's smaller than other locations but still big enough. The dishes are very delicious, everything is clearly labelled and there's definitely enough variety.

Tasty pay-by-weight takeaway but it is expensive!

Apparently pay-by-weight buffets are common in Switzerland, but it was new to us! You can either use a plate and eat-in, buy a reusable container (for a discount on food next time) or take a recyclable, cardboard tray for takeaway.

Everything is clearly labelled if it is vegan and there were lots of options (with serving trays being replaced or refilled regularly). There was great variety - from cold couscous salads to deep-fried cauliflower wings to hot pasta dishes to sweet potato wedges - and everything was very tasty.

Whilst busy, we didn’t really have to queue and were out and eating within 10 minutes.

However, it is rather expensive. Compared to a formal restaurant in Zurich, it’s definitely good value, but we paid about 35chf for the two of us.

Pros: Lots of options , Easy to find the vegan choices

Klare Empfehlung!

Große Auswahl an veganen Speisen, Salaten und Desserts. Man kann sich auch eine to go box befüllen. Der Teller wird nach Befüllung am Buffet bei der Kassa abgewogen und man bezahlt nach Gewicht.

Pros: Viele vegane Optionen, Freundliches Personal, Gratis Wlan

Nice buffet

This has been my first veg restaurant in Zurich so it’s still a special place to me. The food is good, the choice is decent (too many not vegan options IMO), nice atmosphere and close to the lake!

Pros: Food quality , Location, Good vibe

Cons: Vegan choice could be wider

Disappointing vegan food

Vegan buffet in downtown Zurich

This place had a lot of options, we chose a bunch of different scoops of dishes but mostly cold food items including - an edamame pasta, a tofu scramble, fruit, and cold quinoa oatmeal. Some hot items we got were a potato dish and sausage. We got a tahini brownie for dessert which was good. In theory all the dishes looked good, but we found only the oatmeal and the warm potato and sausage link to be good. Everything else was pretty bad, so we would recommend sticking with the hot foods.

Indoor and outdoor seating, nice warm atmosphere

Service ***
It’s a buffet so it’s serve yourself.

Price $$$
In our opinion, we were shocked when we brought up only one dish with small scoops of a couple items and it was 30CHF - which is insane and with the taste of the food, this place, in our opinion, was not worth it. Perhaps trying more of the warm dishes, but be prepared to be shocked by the price when they weigh it at the end. We prefer to know how much our meal will cost before we check out.

Delicious buffet

A self service restaurant. One can choose what to take and pay by weight. There are vegetarian and vegan options, vegan options are marked.
It has many customers, so it is not easy to find a table.
The food is delicious.
Getting rid of milk and it's products would make everything perfect!

Pros: Buffet, Tasty

Should go vegan

Food is nice, see photos. However, in 2020, why is tiramisu and so much more from the buffet not vegan? It would be very easy.

Cons: Not cool to still use cow milk in 2020

Always dependable

Love having Tibits in Switzerland. It's always there for you, open continuously, decent choice of foods on the buffet and at the counter and very friendly staff.
The buffet here isn't huge but apart from that there's lots of space and the location is very central.

Pros: Always there for you, either eat here or takeaway, Easy buffet and counter choice, So convenient

Nice vegan buffet selection

We came for lunch here. It was very busy and hard to find seating. The buffet was great. The selection was less than at Hiltl, but cheaper at CHF 4.30 per 100 g for mains and CHF 3.90 for dessert. The food was good. We had a pleasant lunch here.

Vegetarian buffet

Tibits is a chain, but each restaurant has a slightly distinct style. They offer a wide, and changing, range of buffet dishes. There is also a vegetarian 'butcher' place owned by Tibits close-by, they sell cooking books, and they offer cooking classes etc.
I was particularly amazed to learn that this is one of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in all of Europe!

Pros: Great food, Great variety

Cons: Quite expensive

Vegan/Vegetarian Buffet with over 40 Options

Die Tibits-Kette bietet täglich ein Buffet mit über 40 Gerichten, die vegetarisch oder Vegan sind. Preis wird anhand Gewicht bestimmt.
Wir waren am 1.1.2020 in diesem Tibits, das die gewohnte Art der Speisen anbietet. Viele vegane Möglichkeiten, die sehr lecker sind. Nettes Personal, sehr gut besucht, dennoch angenehme Atmosphäre in zentraler Lage in Zürich.

Pros: Grosse vegane Auswahl

Nice but nothing special

Went here for dinner one night while visiting Zurich. Food is buffet style and you pay by weight. The food was nice but I didn't think it was anything special. One of the things I got included tofu scramble, salads, samosas, and schnitzel. Everything is vegetarian, and vegan options are clearly marked. I was disappointed by the lack of vegan dessert options: there were one or two basics (e.g. fruit) but nothing special. It was reasonably priced based on other meals I'd bought in Zurich (I filled my plate and spent about 25 CHF).

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Few vegan dessert options

Interesting buffet restaurant

Lots of variety and interesting dishes, to make up a weight-based meal. Yucca and seaweed were available, as well as gluten-free bread. Something for all tastes.

Pros: Vegan options available

Cons: Flavours didn't stand out, Expensive (but it's Switzerland)

Always reliable

I'm not generally a big fan of buffet restaurants but Tibits is an easy place to find vegan food at any time of day in Zurich.

They have some good dishes and is quick, but if course the quality of food will never compare to a restaurant where they cook it fresh. It can be hard to judge the cost too because it is based on weight, so be careful when losing up your plate.

Pros: Lots of options , Quick and easy

Cons: Food is nice but never amazing
