Food was delicious, I first had the crystal dim sums. Tasted amazing! Then we took the special sushi set for two persons. Really really good! A lot of sushi's, fresh fish, perfect flavours and also really generous. Service was on fleek as well! Had a great dinner! The interior was beautiful and contributed to the cozy atmosphere.

I expected Shanghai food there but just got disappointment. Its menu is completely like any other average Asian restaurants in Vienna, but the price is obviously higher! Its bathrooms have somewhat Chinese horror movie style.

We had to have a couple of drinks in cafe next door waiting for a table but it was worth it! Some of the best sushi ever. A fun spot very popular with the 30-40 year olds. Good service and reasonable prices. One of the owners had a nice chat with us and offered a nightcap on the house. Very... More

Great Sushi in a trendy place. The restaurant is nicely decorated. Very cosy and "private setting" downstairs, however quite dark and this is unfortunately also the smoking section. As I hate cigarette smoke in a restaurant, going downstairs was anyway no option for me. So, we had a table for 4 in the main room of the restaurant which was... More

If you want to be in a more private setting book a "separée" Downstairs. But be warned, that's the smoking area. If you are lucky you get the floor pillows, if not .. then you will sit on (for me at least) quite uncomfortable leather benches. That aside, service is super nice, food is good to great, cozy ambience.

This is a very atmospheric place, great décor and a vast menu, Thai, Vietnamese, Sushi, Sashimi etc etc. It was rather dark and hard to see the menu and indeed the food on my plate. I opted for the Satay Combi, whilst the chicken was fine, the beef and lamb were rather dry and a little tough. Again the Penang... More

I was looking forward to my visit at Shanghai Tan, having studied the menu online in advance. First impression upon entering the premises - deep fried cooking smells: one of my pet peeves. The place is very dark, the interior decor channeling "opium den" vibes with the downstairs area (including toilets) resembling a hall of mirrors. I did not mind... More

We decided to go to the best sushi restaurant in Vienna, Shanghai Tan. We ordered about 40+ sushi and some dumplings, for dessert we ordered the lucky balls, bean dessert with coconut bath, very tasty. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the WC is worth the visit.

We went here for a birthday party and were seated in the cellar. The ambiente is really nice and awesome. The food is delicious. It is very dark and a bit cramped, especially for bigger people. The service was the low point for which I took off a point. We waited over 2 hours for our food and had to... More

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighbourhood Profile
Mariahilf
Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theatre decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.
