“Can't wait to go back”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We didn't expect to find such excellent authentic Chinese food in Vienna, but here you go! We ordered off the Szechuan specialty menu, since that's their strong suit, but the menu also has dishes from other countries in the region.

We started with the relatively spicy dandan noodles and a crunchy cucumber salad dressed with sesame oil and had cumin lamb and a chicken dish piled high with chilies and szechuan peppercorns as our main dishes. As an afterthought, we ordered some gai lan sauteed with garlic, to offset all the meat. Everything was absolutely delicious and properly spicy. The others ordered a starter with silken tofu, a spicy shrimp dish, and a pork and vegetable dish with the pork sliced so thin that it almost looked like noodles. Everyone was very happy with their dishes.

The next day at breakfast, it turned out that we were both already thinking about what we'll have next time.

The ONLY drawback, but this is true of most restaurants in Vienna, is that the smoking section is symbolically separated from the non-smoking section by a door that is usually kept open.

“Great exotic authentic food in a sober environment”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

You go here for the food, not for a romantic evening, but when love is influenced by the stomach, romance is guaranteed!
Without using too many words: authentic Thai, Korean and Chinese food. We went 2 evenings in a row. You cannot get disappointed in this place. But do not look for pictures on the wall or nicely decorated ambiance. Congratulations to the cook and the nice service.
