Creative maki & sushi

I visited Sosaku already several times and each time it was excellent. My wife - who lived three years in Japan and enjoyes sushi - confirmed sushi was great. As a vegetarian - surprisingly enought I enjoyed it a lot too. The vegetarian tempura maki was amazing. Surely to be recommended.

For a Japanese food lover, it is a pleasure to find a place that respects the ingredients and Japanese culture in such a beautiful way. Amazing food, from starters to desserts.

Mouth-tinglingly delicious food in a small restaurant in an unprepossessing street just five minutes walk from Vienna's ultra-grand museum quarter. The atmosphere is sleek and smart - minimalist decor, low lighting (making it slightly tricky to read the menu if you are of a certain age and wear reading glasses), and nicely friendly. An extensive and interesting menu: we had... More

Excellent Sushi - that's it. Service is very friendly, prices are OK and the place is small. Reservation is recommended.

This is a japanese restaurant located in Vienna Downtown, close to Volkstheater. The place is bit noisy, so you can talk quietly with your friends. The atmosphere is very nice, mainly at night. They have japanese food, but also it's possible to order international food. The Italian food was very nice for me, and Japanese food was very good for... More

What a horrible place. The waiting staff was rude, the sushi was served warm and fell apart and the manager abruptly told us off, after payment, for not having paid a tip. He explained, very clearly, that this was a rule in foreign restaurants in Vienna. There was no indication at any point that something like that was expected. That... More

The restaurant has a minimalist feel--clean and functional. The selection on their menu is great and the prices for the normal sushi and sashimi look reasonable. We went for their unique or designer rolls such as spicy tuna, atlantic roll, animal style and so on. They all tasted good, however, we felt that they were a bit small considering that... More

The Japanese restaurant serves sushi with a twist and traditional sushi must be asked for. Clean and neatly decorated with functional table setting. I appreciated the fine array of orchids by the window. Appetisers ranged from €8.90-€12.50 included beef tataki, softshell crab tempura, rock shrimp tempura etc. The shrimp tempura was absolutely fantastic and the sweet sauce that accompanied it...

This place is small, tidy and appears unpretentious. The food is certainly not unpretentious. The first taster, a carpaccio, I will never forget. Moderate prices. Very good service.Wanted to go back, but closed on sundays.

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
