Quick visit. Ordered a sushi bento box. Nigiri was ok, spring rolls terrible, maki anonymous and no original soy or ponzu sauce. The place is called Soya, but they have a bottle of Kikkoman salty soy sauce on each table. Not exactly ambitious. Despite the complimentary miso soup and fortune cookie, this place is not worth your time or money.

Soya is one of the places I would always go back to when I lived in Vienna. The place is very cozy and cute, and even though it's in a very busy area, Soya's location is perfect - a nice interior garden, isolated from the noise of Mariahilferstrasse. The food is really delicious. I highly recommend any Bento's. The prices... More

First time I've visited Soya 2 years ago when visiting my friend who was a regular guest. On the next trip to Vienna I was excited to eat there again :) Good food, good prizes. Mixed menus, including starter and some sushis are the best idea. For example, 2 menus, beer and tee costet around 20 euros. Place is small... More

This is a place to go if you need/want to eat Japanese authentic food at a good price. The atmosphere is not fancy to spend a night but is ideal to have a quick good meal. Service is fast and kind. Lot of variety of food at a very good price. You can eat spending about 12 euros per person... More

Loved this place. Service was good and fast. The menu choice allows a combination of cooked meals and sushi (maki, taki) and includes free salads and soups etc. It's the wee things that make the difference. As for the taste, excellent for what is essentially fast food Japanese cuisine. If you've had enough of German/Austrain/Hungarian meat, veg and potatoes then... More

Came here recommended by a friend of mine. I eat a ship full of sushi, gyoza, and my girlfriend rice with marinated chicken and pineapple. All the food was delicious and the price...26€ If you want to eat Japanese in Austria definitively come here!

Even though the restaurant does not look fancy at the first glance it is worth paying a visit. While service is not as good as it could have been the food is good. They offer broad variety of asian foods, mostly Japanese. I've been here two times now and I was satisfied both times. They offer sushi, maki, sashimi, ramen... 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.
