What a fascinating combination! A Chinese place that is actually completely vegetarian, but still would make any meat lover happy. Its extensive menu offers all the usual dishes you would expect at a Chinese restaurant. A Westernized I mean, not saying that's a bad thing though. Most of you would prefer General Tso's Chicken over duck tongue and pig ear,... More

So it's been months since I've been in Vienna. I was there for 3 days and I've been there twice and I'm still dreaming about the steamed dumplings ;) A little bit hard to find but so worth it and very lovely to sit outside

Found this completely vegetarian & mostly vegan restaurant by accident. It was fantastic & I would highly recommend to anyone in the area, regardless of whether you are vege or not. Loved the peanut balls for starter & tofu sweet & sour for main course.

I'm a veggie & my husband is not. But we both loved it. Quiet street, 10 minutes walk from mariahilferstraße & you get to sit outside & drink beer. Food was awesome & my toddler enjoyed as well. You will enjoy even if you're not a vegetarian.

This is an all vegetarian and vegan cuisine. The menu is really thick and it is fun to be able to chose from so many dishes (something I as a vegetarian am not used to). Portions are big, staff super nice and food tastes really good. For the price range, this place is excellent!

Great little vegan Chinese, really tucked away-set well ack from the road on Kaisserstrasse. Great service-really friendly. Good mixture of vegetables and mock meat. Really tasty sauces and menu says no MSG so great.

I accidentally found this place together with a friend while walking along back streets of 7th disctrict and looking for a lunch place :) I was surprised to see an Asian place offering a vegetarian buffet (I had never seen one of those before), especially in meat loving Austria. Of course, it is the westernised version of Asian cuisine, but... More

Mainly a lunch all-you-can-eat vegan-vegeterian restaurant. Been eating there for years, the choice is good, the quality great, the service is friendly and helpful, the price is very reasonable. A great choice for lunch or brunch any day of the week and weekend!

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
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. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. 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.
