Creative sushi, luke-warm service

The restaurant is separated into two different parts - we were sitting in the right side one, which I guess is the "restaurant" part (as the other part is called "restaurant & bar"). We arrived around 7:30pm, when only a couple of tables were taken. By 8:00pm the whole place was more or less full... read more

I ordered 10 pcs sushi with 6 maki set and my husband ordered some sahimi. 1/3 of the fish wasn't fresh. Color wasn't looking good neither. We were offered an amuse-bouche by the waiter as an apetizer. It was a raw shrimp without any taste. He didn't made the effort to explain us that it was 'raw shrimp'. It is... More

we were staying down the street at an AirBnB and stumbled on this restaurant on a very cold and rainy night. The main restaurant couldn't fit us so we sat in the bar area next door and it was fantastic. Our waiter was over the top accomodating. The sushi was super fresh and the wine was also excellent.

It's a small and good looking restautant well located near the city centre. Service was gentle but to slow (more than 45 minutes to get a misou soup). Food was nothing special in general, specially the huge sushi rolls.

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

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.
