First Review by AlexanderGamayunov

Ahh, at last! - Edit

This is precisely the kind of restaurant I've been looking for in Vienna, and I'm conflicted about how to feel about it: I'm so very glad to have found a place that I can hold in high a regard as my favourite restaurant ever (The Naam in Vancouver), but so very disappointed that it took me so long to finally do so! The ambiance is beautiful, and the menu contains a vast array of all the healthy, feel-good 'hippie foods' that I could ever want (including three varieties of the fairly-elusive-in-Austria kombucha, and made in-house to boot!). The servers are nice and the restaurant is an enclave of tranquility on a busy, tourist-and-crowd-infested street in the middle of a more generally crowd-infested city. As someone who gets anxious around crowds, and especially anxious in the summer heat that I detest so greatly, I'm so grateful for this restaurant's existence.

Though I've only visited once (and frankly have yet to finish my soup or even touch my desert at the time of typing this), I am sure it will be far from my last!

P.S.—They do charge a small environmental surcharge for the paper plates and bags nearby the desserts, which is by no means a bad thing, but just wanted to make that clear as it's a bit confusing. If you're eating in, just order the dessert you want and I'm sure they'll bring it to your table on a normal plate, sans surcharge. :)

Great place and shop - Edit

We only popped in for something sweet and a drink, so did not have the pleasure of a proper meal. What we did have was absolutely delcious - brownie and a cheesecake. Excellent quality raw vegan food. Unbelievably scrumptious. If we had been in Vienna longer we would have booked a meal. Great wee shop too.

Pros: Lovely desserts, Great shop, 100% vegan

great raw food - Edit

The place is really nice and has a lot of seats (and a beautiful courtyard). I went there for breakfast and I really enjoyed the food. They have special combos for breakfast where you get a main dish, a small smoothie and either coffee or tea. Both the sun warrior (with chia pudding) and the morning glory (with a grain porridge) combos where really good. The atmosphere is really relaxed and there was also a beautiful cat sleeping on box, however it was even too relaxing there. It took almost an hour to have breakfast, so be aware of that if you are short of time and have a busy schedule.

Favourite vegan Restaurant in Vienna - Edit

I just love the food in the Dancing Shiva! Everything is raw and prepared very beautiful and super tasty. Many dishes also contain super foods and are organic.

If you are in town, I recommend to try the brunch on Saturdays, then you have the chance to try many different raw variations. A also must-try are the deserts - always super nice.

There is also a shop which provides super foods and the friendly stuff is very knowledgeable and helpful.

Pros: Raw, super tasty, super foods, Knowledgeable Stuff, Deserts

Cons: A little bit expensive

Called something else I think now - Edit

I went to a place called Superfood cafe on the same road so I imagine it must have dropped the Dancing Shiva from their name. I had a raw wrap and a spicey chocolate drink. I felt amazing afterwards. It's a very peaceful place which extends far far back. Sit outside in the sun at the back if you can.

Pros: great food, peaceful atmosphere

Interesting experience - Edit

There are many vegan restaurants in Vienna,but there are not many raw vegan places like this one. The dancing shiva has a lovely and peaceful atmosphere. It is in a side street of the Mariahilfer Strasse,which makes it easy to get there,but is just far enough away from the noise of the city. I was a bit disappointed, that we could only order the breakfast menus,even though we arrived only half an hour before lunch time. The food was tasty, but there is only a choice between three dishes and the portions are quite small. I really love their desserts and selfmade truffles, but the main courses are just too pricy for what you get compared to other vegan options in Vienna. It is worth to visit it once for the experience, but it is not a restaurant I would go to regularly.

Pros: creative menus, Nice vibe

Cons: Expensive, Small portions

Good vegan raw food - Edit

I sat outside in the garden one afternoon and had the raw vegan pizza and the cheese cake with ice tea, the food is excellent and the atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant, I highly recommend it for raw food lovers, the prices are pretty high but you can tell that the food is made with good ingredients.

Pros: Great sitting areas, Very friendly staff, lots of interesting options

Cons: pricy

Super! - Edit

I was at RAW BRUNCH BUFFET and it was gorgeous. Great variaty of raw tasty dishes. Also tried on of their cakes and it tasted marvelous. The atmosphere is very relaxing and cosy. The prices are rather high but justified.

So much fun!!! - Edit

A dog and six good friends with various food restrictions (gluten free, oil free, sugar free etc) met for Saturday Brunch and had a wonderful time. The buffet was well marked, delicious and a huge hit among us all. Everyone could get a delicious creative meal while staying within the their own nutritional demands. We were invited to a cooking demonstration which was most interesting, and afterwards were offered tastes. Adorable India-ish ambiance made it a party. Coming back as soon as possible!

Pros: fun ambiance/ charming decoration, excellant food, helpful service

Great for an occasional raw food splurge - Edit

Let's dispense immediately with the biggest issue for most people concering Dancing Shiva: the menu prices. One can't help but get the impression that Dancing Shiva's menu, pricing, shop selection, and food workshops (around €200 per session the last time I checked) are geared more towards the affluent raw foodista crowd.

However, the food here is absolutely creative, delicious, and a bit experimental. Sure, it's expensive, but bear in mind that you're getting fresh, healthy, natural, raw-grade ingredients. It's not easy or cheap to source this kind of food in large quantities, so please keep that in mind.

Summary: If you're new to raw food cuisine, the menu prices will be a shock. Most of us can't afford to eat here regularly, so consider it an occasional treat. Go ahead and splurge a little, though - it's definitely worth a try.

Pros: Creative menu, Generous portion, Good location

Cons: Expensive

hours vary - Edit

More like untill six, we just got refused, she said kitchen closes at six she said... We took away some raw tart, and it was 11,80 for just two small pieces, quite expensive i would say, but lovely taste for sure, i would like to go back there, by the way, you first have to cross a very strange hippie shop, the restaurant is in the back, the take away cacao balls, 24 euro for six, but looking excoticaly outerworldly good!
