“I give it all 5s”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

I know Vienna has its unfair share of these places but this one is very good and very fresh. Every thing we ordered and we ordered a lot was very tasty. The staff is well trained and can offer up great suggestions. It is worth the stop

“Tasty and quiet alternative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Vienna may just have the highest sushi-restaurant density per capita. There is perennial favorite Yama, which seems to be falling victim to their success (their sushi is still good, but service is absolutely terrible).

We discovered Yirasai somewhat recently - although it's been here for a while, apparently. It's nowhere near as busy as other sushi places (perhaps owing to the non-obvious parking arrangement in the back). But that's a good thing for those who bother to go in. You are almost guaranteed a pleasant, quiet experience and good, attentive service.

They offer a fairly comprehensive list of sushi rolls and combinations, as well as teriyaki plates. Sushi is good, fish seems fresh, rice is properly cooked, not too sticky and there is not too much of it so you can actually taste the fish. I tend to judge sushi restaurants by quality of their mackerel ("saba"), it's usually a good indicator and Yirasai was great.

Teriyaki plates are fine, but a bit dry for my taste. All in all, if you are looking for good sushi in Vienna, and want to be treated well and avoid a long wait, try this place - you won't regret it.
