“Our favourite Asian restaurant in Vienna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

After trying more Asian restaurants we settled down to Li’s at Naschmarkt. Being only five minutes from our place is a plus but by far not the motive for our decision. There are about 4-5 waiters and the same number of cooks and no more than 40 seats at all. Everything is freshly prepared on the premises. We always admire the smoothness of the operation, the staff’s efficiency and how they work as a team (as far as we know, they are from Shanghai). They also serve a fair assortment of traditional and modern sushi.

Two favourites: Pan fish of Thai (H4) and the maki dish Japan Girl (S3)

“Great place, good price nice staff, great Asian selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

We frequent this location and are rarely dissappointed. It is an informal location at Natscht Market in Vienna. Wonderful variety of Asian cooking at a great price. Not fancy, just good food.

“Not the ideal place for asian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

It looks ok, chinese-ish, but food is strange...more japanese. I ordered a vegetables wok but it tasted very european, no sign of asia there... Another person at the table went with noodles and they were better. Rice is included in woks'. From the house we had 3 springrolls and coconut milk at the end. Also drank a good bamboo liquor. Prices are more than ok compared to others.

“Food is good, but the service is annoying”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2010

This restaurant is located in the lovely Naschmarkt, the open-air market which I definitely recommend visiting when the weather is nice (also in the evening, there are many chic restaurants and cafés) .
Li's Cuisine offers good Asian food (mostly Japanese and Thai), for a reasonable price.
The problem is that the waiters and waitresses are constantly bugging passers-by to convince them to eat there, are tend to ignore those who are already sitting in the restaurant. They are also apparently in a hurry to get you out of the way, so as soon as you set your fork down your dish gates takes away, you don't feel like you can sit for a while and relax.
