Tucked away in a little corner in the old part of Klagenfurt. Lovely fresh food (made to order) and the duck was delicious and plentiful. Dinner with drinks was very reasonable and they take credit card too which can be difficult to find around this part of town. Worth eating here if you feel like a lighter option than the traditional Austrian fare.

I had not expected to find a Japanese restaurant in Klagenfurt, let alone one as good as this. The menu is not extensive, but the quality is first rate. Tucked away in the corner of a square, it is not the easiest to find, but well worth the effort. Apart from the great food, the staff are without exception, charming and attentive. Enjoy!

The Japanese restaurant “Mimi” in the center of Klagenfurt has a marvelous outside seating area under a large tree. This was the perfect location for having lunch on this warm and humid Saturday in mid-summer. The little street adjacent to the restaurant seems to be closed for traffic. Thus, we were not disturbed by street noise or smelly exhaust gases. The interior of the restaurant, however, is less attractive.

In a Japanese restaurant, it may be customary to order Sushi, Maki or Sashimi. However, Japanese cuisine goes far beyond that. Therefore, we chose other dishes, i.e. an “Itame” and a “Ramen”. This led to a problem. Although it was terribly difficult to understand the waiter, we finally grasped that only a single kind of fish was available for the Fish Itame and we were advised to choose the corresponding chicken dish called Tori Itame. We found this astonishing given that there were quite a few fish dishes on the menu. Nevertheless, we heeded the waiter’s advice.

During the moderate waiting time, we were served spicy cabbage salads as starters. The dishes we received were not bad, but seemed to be unseasoned. We appreciated that they were neither greasy nor had been drowned in soy sauce. Of course, we could have rendered them tastier by adding some soy sauce ourselves, which was at the table. However, in our opinion they should have other flavors than just that of soy sauce.

Most guests at the tables next to ours had chosen Sushi, Maki, Sashimi etc. Maybe that Mimi’s cook specializes only in these dishes. If this is the case and one orders only dishes of such a kind, Mimi may actually be a good choice, seeing that portions are huge and prices reasonable.
