The location, decoration, atmosphere are all first class. The food is even better and provides authenticity, creativity and broad variety. The lady running the place is not consistent though. She is sometimes highly stressed and on occasions very friendly and helpful. It would certainly help if the service from reservation to taking orders is stabilized and rendered a little more...

There are many Chinese restaurant in Europe. No matter which countries we visit, we would like to have some Chinese meal. Yet, most of them serve similar food, like Hot $ Sour soup, fried spare rib, Mix fried veggies, ect. At Goldene Zeiten, we tried the whole fish in soya sauce and ginger, it tastes authentic and we had a... More

I can't believe they have coming back customers. My guess is that it's a money loundry! One the first page of the menu they described food as the best food in the world. What a joke!!!! The food was really awful, overcooked, smelly and extremely overpriced. There is also surprise at the end: cover change 3EUR per person. We could... More

I find this place completely over-rated. I had a starter that I enjoyed, the main-courses were gloopy and uninteresting. And that at a price. Service was cold and unengaged. Not returning.

The interior of the restaurant is very nice and it's in a central location. I guess these two facts make the owner think about the rent and how they are going to pay for it, more than they think about their clients. The owner tried in any way to convince us to spend more money and gave us a sour... More

We ate at "Goldene Zeiten" within the frame of the "Nespresso Gourmet Weeks". Even though this made our dinner reasonably priced (27 € for three courses, not including drinks), I still have the feeling of having payed too much. Given the big name of this restaurant, and its posh location, we had high expectations. But the food was, at its... More

We were towards the end of a two-week trip around Europe and were craving for some Chinese food when we arrived in Austria late one evening. The concierge at Sofitel recommended this restaurant about 10 minutes' walk away. The owners claim in their menu to be "among the best Asian Restaurants worldwide". The proprietereess was also constantly boasting (in Mandarin)... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
