“Excellent, super fresh sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

I have to admit that, looking from the outside, i would never have entered the place. I'm glad i trusted tripadvisor and did! We went near closing time (18h30!) The place was packed (i.e., 7 people were seated), but we got a place after a few minutes. I'm not an expert in sushi, but i can tell you the fish was extremely fresh, tasted great, and I loved the rice. Since the kitchen *is* the shop, they prepare everything in front of your eyes. They were constantly selling taleaway orders and taking new ones, so you can tell it's a popular place in vienna. I absolutely loved the experience as a whole (friendly, tiny, cosy, clean, fresh, yummy), and the price (free tea!) was more than fair (10-15 eur per person). Highly recommended!

“Great lunch place to eat sushi”

Went here for lunch as the close at 18:30 hours. Great sushi in one of the smallest restaurants of vienna at a reasonable price. Certainly worth waiting for.

“You want great sushi...? You're not in Japan...? Go to Kojiro in Vienna!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

Ok... My GF and I are addicted to raw fish on rice. We have travelled to Tokyo, West Coast USA, Australia, all over Europe and Asia. Tell you what, till now this small sushi restaurant ranks at no. 2 overall. Only beaten out by that tiny sushi joint at Skiji Fish Market in Tokyo (and maybe only because of the atmosphere there...)

Order the chirashi (my favourite) or any other set menu. You will not be dissapointed. Favourite time to head to there is sushi-Saturday-breakfast ;) it became a tradition!

Staff is friendly, fish is fresh, rice is tasty and the ambience (the smell, the language, the green tea) takes me back to Tokyo :)

Actually... Don't go! It's so small and hard to find a place, leave them for me ;)

“Best sushi in Vienna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

In this small kiosk you will never find a free space - whenever you come is always full of people. But when you try their sushi you will understand the reason why. Kojiro made me addicted to sushi, whilst before I considered myself as a "meat-man". So if you decide to follow the advice and go there then you must take their "Kojiro-spezial" - is an assortment of different type of sushi.
Believe me - it will become a place where you occasionally find yourself everytime when you want to enjoy seafood.

“Best sushi I ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

And I am not a novice in sushi hunting. Haven't yet been to Japan but have tried lots of sushi places in Canada, USA and Europe. Kojiro bar has the best sushi quality. The fish is so fresh, the rice dissolves in your mouth, and the whole sushi assembly does not fell apart when you take it with chopsticks and flip it over to dip in soy sauce, touching it with fish, not with rice. However, the place is pretty small, good for 7-8 patrons. They say, the capacity of one sushi chef is only enough to feed that much clients at a time. Because sushi are supposed to keep warmth of chef's bare hands, his hospitality and best attitude to his guests. One Japanese diplomat stated that regarding the taste of sushi, the place like Kojiro ia unique in Europe, and there are couple of places like that in California, and really few even in Japan.
