Off the tourist track in the trendy Züri-West district, this friendly locals' haunt draws art and design students and others on a budget. The setting is sleek and minimalist, with long, communal tables, tubs of chopsticks, and an open kitchen. Don't be put off by the eatery's somewhat unappetizing name, but instead get ready to tuck into Lily's generous bowls of delicious, steaming Japanese noodles, Malaysian satays, Korean salads, and Pakistani curries, which can all be accompanied with an unusual selection of pan-Asian beers.
