My wife had the bolognese and loved it, I had the Tatar and it was quite strange but really nice. Super cool atmosphere and the staff were great. Our meal was 51chf which I think is super cheap for Zurich.

Amazing array of food, spoilt for choice with Indian, Chinese, Thai and Italian. Great choice of salad and desserts. However, it was very pricey. Overall, worth the visit but be willing to spend more than you might expect for a buffet.More
