We actually came here to try the hot pot but it was such a hot day and we wanted to sit outside, so we voted against it. We ordered two different kinds of Chinese dumplings as an appetizer, they were filled with pork, shrimp and veggies and were really tasty. As a main dish we both chose a ramen dish with pork and veggies. The ingredients seemed to be very fresh and the sauce had a nice deep flavor. Service was very friendly and attentive.

We made a reservation the day before arriving, which I think would not have been necessary, but just to be safe. The hot pot with the included starters was excellent. The waiter (maybe the owner?) was really nice and the whole place very charming. You could talk without listening to other people. For about 40 euros we had a perfect dinner with starters, the main dish some watermelon as dessert and drinks. The hot pot is a great experience if you like to try new things.

I booked these chinese based on the recommendation of a colleague who lived in HK.
I have to say that it was a good recommendation!
Our expectations were low as the european chinese food is quite "processed" and "standard".
However the experience in this restaurant was really great, we took their famous "hotpot", which means it is served with fresh ingredients which you have to cook yourself in their hot bouillons and eat them with different sauces.
The result was really good, even tough the restaurant was very busy and the boss gave us a very fast introduction on how it works and how long each ingredients needs...
The key factor in this positive experience is that you are fully integrated in the cooking process as you need to cook it yourself... which makes the experience great!
The meat needs to be very shortly cooked and it is delicious.
The shrimps are also very good, even tough you have to peel them yourself...
We took the Dao set including starter and fruits as dessert, we recommend.
Enjoy!

Finding a steamboat restaurant in Austria is a challenge, let alone a good one. Foods were fresh, broths and sauces were delightful. Ambience is a cross between a modern restaurant and pub which makes it a versatile spot for fun dining and drinking with family and friends. Service is warm and friendly. We have listed this place as one of our regular visits in future.
