Athentic Japanese home meal, ordinary yet special

I went there two days in a row. I wish I could stay here in Vienna longer to eat here everyday. It seems that they use good quality of fresh ingredients and they use them up only for the day, which makes the food even more special. I had the Nabe udoong and yaki udong and Agaedashi Tofu everything... read more

We are often visitors of Kuishimbo. The restaurant is really small but authentic japanese izakaya style. They offer a lot of different small dishes to taste, which sometimes are delicious but sometimes could be improved (for example, tamago natto or takoyaki tasted a little bit burned). Staff is really nice and makes a good experience.

Although food is made by real Japanese, the dishes were really nothing special. Loads of rice but very little of the expensive ingredients. For the last visit, my ordered Japanese curry rice was made from frozen stock, saw the cook take it out from the freezer. However all staff were very polite, but I rather the food be good.

It is a very very small restaurant and not easy to notice. It is run by Japanese. Food is ok with fair price. No English menu is however available. Choices are limited. Very friendly staffs.

This is the perfect place for Asian Food Lovers. The Tofu soup is amazing, the fish and rice is excellent and the staff is so dedicated in doing what they seem to love, that waiting to be served an just looking at the kitchen, makes you more hungry! Thank you!

We've been here several times and the food and service are consistently excellent. Perfect for a quick bite when you don't feel like (or don't have time for) a long lunch at the Naschmarkt.

This little Japanese restaurant reminds me of my experience in Japan. People are nice and friendly, they welcome you just like family. The restaurant is small, but that how everything works! In Japan, a lot of nice restaurants only serve a limited number of customers, they don't take reservation. Here, I'm glad some people brought this food culture to Austria.... More

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighborhood Profile
Mariahilf
Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna and the center. One of the most historic sites in the area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theater decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.
