“Overpriced, over salted”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

First of all, let me say that I was tricked into going here. Well, not so much tricked, but everyone failed to mention that this was a vegetarian restaurant. Having said that I was open to trying the menu which looked somewhat interesting although slightly confusing.

Started with the egg / truffle / spinach with foam. This course was actually decent. Moved on to the artichoke flan course which was over salted. I also tried a few other plates at our table - the truffle pasta and the quinoa - both of which were completely over salted. The presentation of all the courses was quite nice apart from the truffle pasta which was just a white on white boring ball of pasta.

The decor of the place is bland. Chandeliers that look like a pirate ship with dead flowers.

Ambiance - mediocre. Music was playing from some far off cavern that stopped occasionally for 10 minutes and then started up again. Odd.

Service was very good.

Overall I was very unimpressed especially given the prices. I don't in any way consider myself a food snob, but I have eaten in a fair share of Michelin star restaurants around the world to at least know a good from a bad meal. And this was just bad.

“Like in a dream....”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Visiting Vienna with friends, of which two were vegetarians - we decided to book a table at Tian's.
This turned out to be an excellent idea - although a bit on the expensive side - as both the service, the menues and not at least the presenation and taste of these vegetarian delights were something we will remember for a long time.
The variety and taste of the many dishes were exciting, and even if we couldn't always fully understand all the ingredients, we soon agreed that whatever we got on the plate it would taste wonderfully !!
Try Tian !

“Excellent service and ambience”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were bowled over by the service here - the staff were so attentive, professional and yet warm. The prices took us by surprise though; it was definitely not cheap, especially for vegetarian food. We ordered their cococut curry soup (9 EUR) and Field Work (18 EUR). The soup was quite good and smooth, though I would have preferred the curry taste to be stronger. The Field Work was made from 3 different kinds of quinoa. It was our first time trying quinoa and we didn't really like it though. But the food was presented really beautifully, and it was a feast for the eyes.

“Unique”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I was looking for a nice place for my pre-Bday dinner and Tian seemed to be a perfect place. Certainly a night and dinner to remember - unique setting in a historical building, unique combination of flavours and, definitely, unique presentation of dishes.

“Best Vegeterain Resturant ever!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

If you want a true haut gourmet experience without having to worry about meat showing up in your food, this is the place. Fabulous food, impeccable service. The carnivores in your party won't even miss their meat.
recommended for romantic night out.
