Confusing menu layout, but liked the photos of the dishes, and the cartoon next to each, showing which animal was in it. Being vegan, I looked for the cartoon avocado or leaf! Slow service, but the food was good, plentiful, tasty, and cheap.

The food here, especially the shrimp dishes were simply amazing. The service is good and the portions are very large - we were a group of 14 people and, although we asked for only 4 menus for 2 people, we were all full after eating (and there was also food that we couldn't eat anymore). A great experience!

Food was okay. Service was okay either. Saw the waiter "throwing" spoon and forks into the plates. Quite disrespectful but who knows if it is their quick way of cleaning up the table.

TLDR: After eating at this place, my family could not stop talking about how much of a RIP OFF this "dim sum" restaurant is. Dim sum pieces are too small for its price. Tea is charged per teacup rather than teapot...Overall, this place is only here to squeeze every penny you have with mediocre food with an expensive price tag... More

We enjoyed a nice evening at the Happy Buddha, the food was fresh, dim sums absolutely yummy. We noticed lots of Chinese customers (also a chinese bus group...)

As non expert and not real lover of Asian food I was simply enjoying in all dishes I tried during my five visits in just two months. Waiters are friendly and helpful, service is quick and professional. As it's very popular among groups of tourists from Asia avoid lunch and dinner time, then it can be very busy with long... More

If you love dim sum, this is the place you should go!! Ever since my boyfriend and I went to Hong Kong, we can't get enough of it so we're trying to find the best dim sum restaurant in Vienna!! Happy Buddha offers a variety of dim sum, it's hard to make a decision!! The menu has pictures in it... More

Found this place thru online searches and here on TA. Dim sum was hot, fresh and generally pretty good (We had no expectations of Hong Kong quality dim sum), more or less on par with dim sum we get in NJ (USA). The only not so good dim sum item was the Xiao Long Bao; ha gao, fung zao and... More

I usually come to this place for their great dim sum, but they do offer a great range of other dishes as well. If you're not too familiar with dim sum and just randomly order, it might be a hit or miss. If it's a miss, it's most likely your taste preferences and not the dish. Another thing they do... More
