Thai Isaan Kitchen – Thai food by a former monk

This tiny Thai self-service snack bar can hardly be missed, as the color of its outdoor sign is very purple and rather eye-catching. Thai Isaan Kitchen was established by a former monk from Thailand, so the food that’s served is quite authentic. It’s typical Thai the way it can be found on the streets of Bangkok, ranging from pad thai, water spinach and red curries to green papaya salad. Everything is prepared fresh and you can watch how your dish is getting cooked in their open kitchen. 

As for the ambience, the place is not really worth a mention in that regard, but it’s perfect if you’ve had a busy day and just want to get a quick lunch/dinner. Note that at some times during the day it gets very crowded, so it may be tricky getting a seat.

They also have the option of take-away, if you prefer to eat somewhere else. Last note: If you are into sweet dishes, I suggest you order sticky mango rice (Khao Nino Mamuang), which is warm sticky rice with a sliced mango and coconut sauce on top. In my opinion this is the best dessert you can possibly get in Vienna – it’s heavenly!
