SCROLL

The dining experience at Taian Table is centred around its open kitchen to create an interactive and intimate dining experience.

THE EXPERIENCE Each dish is prepared in front of our guests and introduced personally by our chefs and staff. The style of cooking at Taian Table is refined, modern and creative.
Every eight weeks, Stefan and our team create an entirely new tasting menu to capture the spirit and energy of each season, using the best ingredients from around China and the rest of the world.

While our techniques are rooted in Europe, we constantly draw inspiration from the products and flavours of Asia and around the world. PERSONAL TOUCH SEASONAL MENU OUR CUISINE GLOBAL INSPIRATION

OUR TEAM

STEFAN STILLER

The true meaning of “hospitality” is to be a host. Hosting guests is one of my greatest pleasures. I love hosting people, whether it’s at my home or at my restaurant.

Originally from Celle, Germany, Stefan started his culinary career at multiple Michelin-starred restaurants in Germany. In 1999, he opened Restaurant Grand Cru, his own fine dining restaurant in Deidesheim, which received a Michelin star just eight month after it opened. Since moving to Shanghai with his family in 2004, Stefan has established a prominent presence in the city’s culinary scene, both as a chef and restauranteur and as a mentor to aspiring cooks in China. After opening Stiller’s Restaurant and Cooking School in 2008 and EAST Eatery in 2015, he launched the Taian Table concept in April 2016 as a culmination of his longtime vision. Through Taian Table, Stefan hopes to bring together like-minded people, and break the boundaries of traditional fine dining.
