The Heat Chart

In Vienna, it is fairly difficult to find an Indian restaurant that serves spicy food. Unless you are a regular customer or know the waiter personally, it is nearly impossible to get a hot curry, no matter what the menu says.

If you want to test your luck, order a Madras or Vindaloo curry, but the spiciness varies from restaurant to restaurant. You will not find a Chicken Phall anywhere.

The chart

This is a listing of restaurants ordered by the spiciness of a curry ordered explicitly as "very spicy". (The list does NOT reflect the average or general spiciness of the food, so you can order a mild curry even if the restaurant has received 6 chilies in this list.)
