It's worth coming here alone for the decor, it may look kitsch but it's certainly classic. The food is excellent and the service is impeccable.

To be honest, the food is not bad compared with other European Chinese style restaurants. Everything was good until we pay the bill. The price shown on our bill was totally different from the price shown on the menu (more than 20 percent more for each course). I was shocked and asked the restaurant owner. She said their German menu... More

I was disappointed by some Asian restaurants in Vienna, but this time I have to admit the quality of the food is above the average and the service is excellent. Also the place is cosy and you are really far from the crowds of the city, although you are very close to the city center

True Chinese dishes and marvelous atmosphere of aged restaurant. All types of meat: veal, pork, duck and chicken are properly cooked and served. But my favorite is wok with shrimps (big and tasty). Great place for a dinner with friends.

Weekend dining out with family is a very important event for us, we don't want just to eat out, here is where you find good Chinese dumpling and steam buns in Vienna, the restaurant make it all by themselves, and we love dessert as well, here you find delicious dessert aw well.

Took out take out last night and we all thought the food was good. Service was great. I walked in without knowing any German and the staffed helped me without making me feel bad not for knowing German. Since they are located across the street from our apartment and we will be here for 3 months, we will go back.

This is allegedly the first chinese restaurant in austria and it shows; much more austrian than chinese. My litmus test, the hot and sour soup was just ok. I was disappointed there was no crispy beef so tried the crispy duck which is out of this world. Even though there are better chinese restaurants, there are also far worse, like... More

If you are not a fun of chinese food, this is not a place for you unless you want to be initiated in a genuine, discreet and quiet way. Although the menu is quite complete, my advice is to follow the chef's and his charming wife's recommendations of the day, who also own the place - one of the oldest... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighbourhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighbourhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
