The place is very small (about 10 seats) but the food was great and the service was excellent. If you want authentic japanese food in Wien, this is the place to go!

I was having that perennial problem - eating on my own in a strange city, not wanting to be the type to go and sit in a restaurant on my own but equally not wanting fast food or a sandwich. I had actually found Kuishimbo on TA already, but after finding a few in the Naschmarkt area I wandered down... More

No matter where I go, I can't avoid going back to my roots and seek out Asian food all around the world. This place provides authentic Japanese dishes and the most delicious fluffy rice. For a lot of people, rice may not be a huge deal, but to me it makes the whole dish. This place, definitely has it. It... More

This doesn't rate like Marukame Udon in Honolulu, but it is tasty and the service is very friendly. Note that when we were there they closed the kitchen at 8:30 PM.

This family run little Japanese gem is near Kettenbruckengasse underground station just up the stairs cross Linke Wienzille and there it is. As the other reviews state, this place is tiny. 9 seats inside and if weather permits another 6-8 seats outside. Upon entering you are greeted warmly by our Japanese host who is the owner. Warm and friendly. The... More

I love this place as it's 100% japanese (not chino-something). The only negative Point is that there aren't many plates and it's a bit overpriced... but delicious.

If you have a craving for Japanese basic food and a nostalgic feeling for “eats” places like the ones that once lined up down the west entrance of Shinjuku station many, many years ago (before its modern reconstruction was done around the late 1960s), you don’t need to go any further than Kuishimbô. It’s a typical “hole in the wall”:... More

I'm Japanese and have always hard time finding good Japanese restaurants when I'm on abroad. But this place, I can tell you that they have very authentic food. I've been there twice already and both times the food I ordered (croquette and udon noodles) satisfied my hungry belly. So far, it's the only Japanese place I can enjoy in Vienna.... More

Small but very great place, not very expencive. Very welcoming stuff. Recommended. If you want something Japanese - go there and to some big "japanese" restaurants in the center.
