Tibetsia is a cool restaurant in a hip location. The food is really decent (the Momos especially) however, the terrible service made the experience less than enjoyable. We sat waiting for at least 30 minutes before we even received our drinks. Moreover, some of us went for the buffet, while other decided to order a la cart. The food (although... More

If you are looking for an alternative to the standard asian-fusion-eatery this is the place to go to. The Buffet is well priced for Zurich and the freshly made Momos are top class. Very friendly staff in a non-pretentious ambiance.

I had contacted the restaurant in advance to book and ask if they could make the meal special as it was to celebrate the 18th birthdays of our 3 children. Found the restaurant and they had reserved us a table. That was it. Nothing special had been laid on. Had the buffet. Food was fairly warm and fairly OK but... More

Humble and authentic Tibetan Restaurant in the center of Zurich run by an authentic Tibetan! It also has little taste of Asia in specific India. Good option for vegitarians! Must visit!!

It's quite a small but very cosy restaurant. Due to this reservations are required most of the time. We had the buffet, which was tasty and the price for Zürich reasonable.Staff are super friendly.

The food is good, the price is low, but the most interesting thing is in the atmosphere, something that lights up my heart a little when I walk in the door. The staff are real, there is genuine interest in sharing something of Tibet. The buffet is great, never too spicy (but plenty on hand to spice it up with... More

The concept for lunch time is simple: Buffet with cold and warm food, including asian and european salads, curries, various vegetables, options with meat and vegetarian, different types of rice. The all-you-can-eat price includes a drink. Everything is also available to go. Everything is home-made and delicious - not on a gourmet style level, but for everyday visits. Be aware:... More

We had the dinner buffet which was offering Momos, Indian curries and Thai noodle dishes. Their home made hibiscus tea is fresh and tasty. 24 CHF for such a buffet is a good deal!

Delicious buffet eat as much as you like at CHF 24 per person on a Saturday night, can't beat that. Food was excellent, service at times slow but cannot really blame them for it as it was packed with people and, again you can stay as long as you want and eat, eat and eat. On the staff: everybody we... More

We had a nice birthday dinner at this cozy little place and were very happy with our evening. The buffet was fresh, authentic and tasty (although the momos that the place is supposed to be famous for were not the best part of the food). The whole staff was super friendly and did their best to make it an enjoyable... More
