About Us

Our characteristically cordial and enthusiastic team is the foundation of our success. The collective endeavor to make TIAN a unique experience for our guests is reflected in the composition of the dishes, as well as the service and allows us to meet our own, high standards of quality.

According to Christian Halper, the visionary founder of our TIAN restaurants, truly well made, healthy, vegetarian food is integral. It’s why we spare no efforts to combine our own high standards for extraordinary cuisine with our pleasure and delight in experimentation. For this we draw on a multitude of rare and all but forgotten vegetables, fruit and assorted grains, their unmistakable aroma and valuable nutrients.

Respecting natural cycles, we pay attention to preferably organic products, created in a fair way. Our seasonal ingredients are predominantly supplied by regional partners, that understand and adhere to our high standards of quality concerning fresh food.

The name TIAN is not a coincidence by the way. It is the Chinese word for “heaven”, as well as a French vegetarian stew.

Christian Halper‘s and Paul Ivić’s passion for wholesome, vegetarian food is rooted in their past. Fresh harvest on the table every day. What used to be commonplace in their childhood, should be like this again. With TIAN they have both fulfilled a longstanding dream: Vegetarian food prepared in a way that will have your taste buds tingling while indulging all your senses.

Food enriches our life – of this we are convinced. Our vision is for organic, sustainably produced food to no longer be an indulgence of the elite, but the natural way for everyone. It requires respect and appreciation for nature and her multitude of distinctive aromas.
