Solid Sichuan food to get you through colder months. Recommended. Service can seem abrupt - staff does not go out of their way to be nice - but they are pretty personable and accommodating.

This place was recommended by our Airbnb host who is also Chinese. The place serves Sichuan cuisine which is really spicy. I loved the chicken in soup base and the string beans in garlic and soya sauce. I think this is the best Chinese I have had though I have never been to China. The prices are really cheap and...

Title sums it up... I would go there quite often, the food is really very good. If you like hot, you must say so when you order, else they will tone it down to european taste.

This restaurant specialize in Sichuan cuisine and they do it well. Some small local adaptations are unavoidable but it is still the most authentic Chinese food I have tasted in Austria. Dinner reservation is a good idea especially in colder months because their seating capacity is limited without garden seating.

Food was served very quickly. We felt that food was too oily. Most food was spicy because this is a Sze Chuan restaurant. They serve a different menu to chinese speaking clients. We ordered from the chinese menu. Its ok but not the best.

A good restaurant that serves authentic chinese food at a fair price. The service is good. Reservation is recommended for Dinner. We had lunch and got in at a table since it was not booked until 1,5 hours later.

Authentic Sichuan food, great quality of food material! Really can't complain at all! We'll definitely visit again once we're back in Vienna. Book your table in advance if you want to have dinner at 6pm. Or you have to be there before it's opened.

Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art.

Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
