We arrived in a nearby hotel with no idea where to eat and found the Happy Buddha. As our language skills are not good, we went for the set meal - which was delicious. The service was also very good and prompt. Most surprising was how cheap the wine was! We were also suprised to hear other English accents, and a couple of French ones as well. This is obviously not authentic Austrian fare, but we were very pleased with it.

had lunch here today....and unfortunately it wasn't as good as i had expected. Admittedly the general standard of asian restaurants in wien is pretty poor but i had high hopes for what was billed as the best dim sum in the city.
The food was by no means bad but could not hope to compare with others i have had (in london and australia for example) and i thought it was expensive for the standard (€4-5 per dim sum serve....eg 3 steamed pork buns for €4.20).
We ordered 4 dim sum dishes (none outstanding) and the roast duck and veggies...a sprite and jasmine tea for 1....this came to €40 incl tip. The same food would be incomparably better and half the price in my favourite london spots (for eg).

so all in all i had high expectations and was disappointed......not dramatically but enough to ensure i won't go there again

I practically live in Vienna: I come every fortnight from London. We know "Happy Buddha" well. It is somewhere cheap and cheerful, not a place for sophisticated dining. However, if you know what to order, the restaurant does above average Chinese food. The dim sums are fresh and very good, in my opinion. Ditto with the crispy roast duck.

because of the big range of food it is hard to cope with the menu card. the restaurant itself is a bit grubby. the food is okay but there are much better asian restaurants.
