If you can find it..it´s well worth it. But book in advance!

A Special birthday treat by our friends in Austria. Tuicked away in a Corner, this Little eatery won 2012 Award. Great Japanense Food, splendid Service. It is a popular destination for those in the know.

I was lucky enough to grab a chair at the bar at Mochi on a Saturday night without a reservation, but I did have to come back and then wait another 30 min. The wait was worth it. Very good service from the hostess to the waiter to the sushi chefs, very personable and friendly. You are even presented with... More

I have visited Mochi several times in the last 6 months. I was amazed each and every time with the food, service and the atmosphere. Finding a table is my challange in Mochi, the rest is magic.

In a city where bad pan-Asian restaurants abound, Mochi is showing how Japanese should really be done. The carpaccio of tuna with tart yuzu dressing was a stand-out.

Mochi offers a fantastic combination of excellent quality, great cocktails, very friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere!! What else can one ask for? Its one of my favourite restaurants in Vienna. One tip - Always make a reservation in advance if you are a group of 4 or above. You can show up without a reservation if you are 2... More

I've eaten at some of the 'best' Japanese restaurants in the world but this was better! We didn't have a booking and were trying to make one for later in our stay. They had no places but managed to squeeze us in tonight for a early table with a fairly quick turnaround. Everything was amazing, especially the seafood salad.... The... More

While this restaurant is not ranked very high in tripadvisor, this is probably because it is in a more residential area and serving the locals. I found Mochi by looking for a resturant nearby our hotel and saw the positive reviews and booked a place for dinner. It was very busy and we were told that we could be accomodated... More

One more restaurant to put the quiet 2nd District in Vienna on the map is Mochi. Mochi is actually a person who opened his flagship Japanese restaurant in Berlin and oversaw a group of devoted, culinarily skilled, young and enthusiastic chefs glorify his concept over a year ago. Taking Japanese cuisine to another level for Vienna, the modern dark environment,... More

More fusion than classic sushi; the service is friendly and personal with the staff quite willing to serve you a surprise meal which doesn't fail to impress. The music and general chilled-out atmosphere complete a great experience. They don't take bookings for lunch, which makes it a bit of a lottery and you are well advised to book for the... More

It was a nice surprise to eat japanese here; actually it is more fusion than japanese that i am used to. There is an original touch on it; call it western style, but it works just fine. The place is trendy, yet cozy, and the service is friendly. They have a very nice terrace. The price quality is excellent. Try... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
