Wiener Deewan

International in Alsergrund & the University District

Pakistani cuisine, cooked under the maxim ‘eat what you like, pay as you wish’, is the speciality of this super-relaxed restaurant. Three vegetarian and three meat dishes, accompanied by one dessert, are prepared daily and served in a buffet-style set-up; prices aren’t set, and you can eat all five if you like.

Most people are generous with payment, and the non-profit is flourishing. The likes of the lamb karah (diced-lamb curry), tinda (pumpkin curry) and dhal masur (red lentil dhal) are full of subtle flavour; a curry with rice can also be taken away for €5 to €7.
