I love this place. If you go here, you must get the shag roll. We've converted a non-sushi eater to eating sushi because of that roll. It's GREAT! Sashimi and sushi are small in portion size, but the taste is well worth it. You will spend some cash on your meal, but it is worth every dime. When they have... More

I have been fortunate to eat at Uchi in both Austin and Houston and it is hands down the best sushi I have ever eaten. The food, service and ambience makes it one of the best dining experiences I have had. Keep up the great work.

Our first time at Uchi. The sushi was very fresh and the ambience is great. A wide selection of same. The Brussels sprout was great too. Tried the fried milk - but that was not my taste (my wife liked it though).

This was our first time trying Uchi. Knowing trip advisor has never steered us wrong, and the high rating we knew it was going to be good. We just didn't know how good. I can't tell you which of the 3 sushi rolls we tried was the best. The first one the "Shag"was melt in your -mouth-good but the nice... More

Thank you Uchi for making my son's wedding dinner so special! The staff were outstanding and truly made this a memorable dinner. We had a small private room and it offered privacy for the wedding party to enjoy food, drinks and company... Our waiter, Oscar, was fantastic and Jessica made sure that this was a perfect evening from beginning to... More

Uchi, unlike many other restaurants, is a complete experience. We dined in a private room with multiple waiters attending our every need and offering wonderful menu advice. The variety of flavor is complex, yet all dishes seemed to work together in perfect harmony. Their sushi/nigiri is fabulous, but the true star of this place is their brussel sprouts. Even for...
