Superb Asian food prepared with love and served with care and smile.
We have been visiting Ginger & Spice for more than a year. It is one of the best Asian restaurant in Vienna, which offers great food at moderate prices, combining the best cuisines from Western China, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and India.
We recently visited the restaurant with our guests. We ordered Hot and Sour Veg Soup followed by Mango Salad (a house speciality) and Spring Rolls as starters. For main course, we ordered vegetable manchurian, chilli chicken, Thai curry with tofu and vegetables, veg fried noodles and steamed rice. In dessert we ordered stuffed sesame balls and mango pudding. The serving portions were generous and well presented. All dishes were freshly prepared, consistently tasty and were thoroughly enjoyed by each one of us. (In our previous visits we have also tasted equally good vegetarian dumplings as starter and Thai Melanzani and Stuffed Melanzani, spicy tofu, etc.).
The restaurant is aesthetically decorated in Chinese style and can accommodate up to 54 guests. It has a separate room for smoking guests. The restaurant also offers day's menu on working days as well as take away service to its neighboring area. Not far from the city centre, the restaurant is conveniently located in 9th district of Vienna and easily accessible by public transport.
The owners (Liao family) are long experienced in the culinary industry and extremely friendly and happy to recommend and /or customise dishes as per your requirements without compromising the original character of the dish.
(1) They prepare delicious curry dishes too if ordered in advance.
(2) if you enjoy spicy food ask for vinegar chillies in addition to chillies sauce.
(3) if you want to organise large group parties, Sunday lunch time is the best. You get best rate and full resources of the restaurant at your disposal. We have done it with great success and satisfaction.

Generally eating at an asian restaurant in a wholly european country is not the best way to go about eating authentic asian food. As an asian myself, the level of pickiness increases exponentially but this place is not trip advisor approved for no reason!
While there is a variety of dishes from various asian countries you can try, my family stuck to Chinese food and we were happy with our dishes of fried rice, noodles and vegetables.
Our host was very accomodating and gave us English menus to read and recommended some Austrian beer for our family to try. The dishes are reasonably priced and the atmosphere of the restaurant is welcoming. There is also a separate section for those who would like to have a cigarette or two during their meal.
