“Calamari to die for!”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I went here with some colleagues before Christmas and I must say I was impressed. The after living in Vienna for 5 years and being disappointed with Asian cuisine tempered to Austrian palettes, I was pleasantly surprised to find some authentic Szechuan!

Hands down, the best thing there was the calamari. Heap loads of it served in a baking pan filled with chili oil and vegetables. Their shrimp potstickers were also dreamy.

“nice Chinese cuisine :)”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

I wud not say it has the best food but I am quite confident in saying that this restaurant serves one of the best Chinese food. The food here is very spicy so before you order ask them to make it mild if you are not comfortable with spicy food. Service is decent compare to other chinese rest.

“A total surprise!”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

We happened to chance on this restaurant, and are very glad that we did. The menu, while a bit odd to American tastes and sensibilities [offal, "boneless" chicken feet (what the heck is that?), etc.], provided us with enough of a range that we were both satisfied with our choices. We saw their "large" spring rolls, and they were, literally, the size of bricks! Portions were more than generous, and everything we had was very tasty. In fact, there were only a few non-Asians dining there, meaning to us, that the food is both good and authentic. Definitely worth a visit!
