We live here in Vienna and decided to spend our 25th anniversary there. The service was nice but the quality of food was poor and not worth the price. We were both very disappointed by our experience and will not recommend this restaurant to any of our friends in the local or international community. We had eaten there several times... More

The quality of food was good, nevertheless it was a bit pricey regarding service atention. For Classical Japanese food and a cozy place is excellent. If you are looking for something trendy or original I wouldn't go there.

Service was slow and there were only around three other tables in for dinner. Service was friendly and the staff cheerful but not fast.... More

However the service was extremely slow and it took more than an hour for our food to arrive although the restaurant was not very busy. The food was fairly good but considering it to be... More

Good food, good service, but totally overpaid, with good other options in Vienna, same quality and half the price...strange: they give you simple wooden chopsticks like in a fast food Chinese restaurant and not any nice looking ones like they offer in an expensive Asian restaurant...

We dined at Unkai during our recent stay at the Grand Hotel. The food and service was of a very high standard and Sushi was amazing. Worth a visit.

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
