“Charming, hip and very tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Located on an attractive, small square in the quiet 2nd District, Mochi managed to squeeze us in without a dinner reservation. We were delighted to find it a non-smoking restaurant. We noticed too, that none of the sushi chefs or wait staff were Japanese, and that nothing especially Japanese decorated the premises; but this didn't matter, once the 'Mochi for Two' combination began arriving. The set consists of three plates, arriving one after the other. All were quite tasty, most laudable being the sashimi--not quite, but nearly melt-in-the-mouth tender, with a nice assortment that included octopus. The waitress was kind to bridge a few language barriers, and to compensate for jet lag-addled social skills. We enjoyed our meal very much.

“Fad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Reading the many positive reviews you can't help but conclude that either a hype or some serious Tripadvisor-rigging is going on. The food is not bad - but nothing special. A bit on the fusion-side - caught in the middle. Only a fraction of the staff is actually Japanese and so is the atmosphere. As this restaurant is slightly off the beaten track, I don't recommend searching for it and going all the way to there: You can get significantly better Japanese food in downtown Vienna. Prices are modest.

“A great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

It is an extremely busy and trendy place requiring you to make reservations well in advance. It is all worth it as the dishes are innovative and tasty. We especially like the combinations of texture and flavour in their sushi rolls.

“Great food in a cosy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

The food here is wonderful - really fresh and full of flavour. You will not regret trying the Sake Teriyaki which comes with Kimchi and is beyond words.

“Quite tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Indoor it is somewhat crammed so I've always taken away so far but during summer they have outdoor seating - not sure how it is but looks nice. It is really busy and because it is usually a spontaneous decision I take away form them because if you don't reserve your chances to get a place are small.

Food is pretty good, not the most amazing sushi I've ever tasted but pretty good. Would recommend for anyone to check it out. Also they were always pretty fast even though I was taking away (within 10 minutes).
