    Great food, worth the prices. Only complaint is they wouldn't seat or serve us until the whole party was present, even though we had a table reserved and it was sitting empty. It seems like they should assist a paying customer in a situation like this.

    Took my girl here for an evening of sushi. Food was very good, tasty, well presented, no complaints. Place was fairly busy, and our waiter got a little overwhelmed. Interior noise levels were relatively high, but tolerable. Food and drinks were reasonably priced. So, overall, no real complaints - would visit again.

    Dined on 4/12/2014
    My wife and I love this restaurant. I hate sushi she loves it. Uni has good options for both of us. However, they did take the beef fajita roll off the menu which I can't for the life of me figure out why. It's delicious! Bring it back! One of the yummiest things on the menu for the non-sushi eater. We did, however, just ask the server and he said they could still make it off the menu, which they did. And it was wonderful. If there's something you want that's not on the menu, chances are they'll be able to accommodate you.

    Really great Nigri and Sashimi, which I usually judge a sushi restaurants freshness from. I had the mackerel and the amberjack which was in season and the Angry Dragon roll which was fantastic. Spicy, sweet and just right. Good service and everyone is very helpful with the menu if you are unsure of what you want to order.

    This was my first time to dine at Uni Sushi. I was looking for a great first date restaurant in the Woodlands area and it was perfect. From the food to the atmosphere and the attentive, but not overbearing waitstaff it was a fantastic experience. We look forward to returning.

  • Reservations/ table wait
    Dynamofan14VIP
    Dined on 3/7/2014
    Uni, has very good Sushi. The only thing I would change about the experience is the hostess stand. I made reservations and when they called and confirmed I requested a booth and they said no problem. When I arrived they started to seat us at a table and I told them I asked for a booth. There where plenty if booths available and they said "the both is reserved". I told the hostess that we requested a booth. After some back and forth they let us sit at the booth. They have also quoted incorrect wait times. So if you go without reservations and they tell you 45 mins, sit tight a table will magically be ready a lot sooner. We are in the Woodlands not Vegas.

  • Great Place For Dinner

    Dined on 3/1/2014
    Met a girl friend for dinner for girls' night out. The food was fantastic and the service was attentive without being overbearing. We went on a Saturday night at 7 and the restaurant was almost full but not so noisy we couldn't converse sitting across from each other. It's a bit more pricey than another sushi place I like but that is due to the location in Market Street. Great walkability though for heading to another place for drinks after dinner. Parking was easy and free in the garage next to the restaurant. Nice setting inside without being pretentious like so many places down in Houston.

  • Always enjoy my time at Uni
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Always enjoy my time at Uni Sushi. Love the ambience, always get seated where I want, which is the quieter front of the restaurant. Suits all ages, suits all styles of dress and I would imagine everyone's price! Could be a little too noisy with their music but play a good range of music, hence suiting everyone, good balance. Prefer the comfortable booth seating to the chairs. Do not like the curved booth seating as everyone is sitting on top of each other and can be very awkward for the people seated in the centre. Their table and chairs are a little too basic and too close together with the loud music your conversation is for everyone around you. Love Uni Sushi and often lunch there, I always recommend it to people visiting the woodlands.

    Food is always good to excellent, never bad. But it can fluctuate from good to very good. But that is par for the course for raw fish in Houston, we are not in Hawaii or Los Angeles. The restaurant has core staff that has been here for a fair amount of time, and they are great staff, however, the restaurant does has its share of the revolving door of new staff and they often lack the knowledge of what they are doing or what they are serving, if you can be patient, they do try and are always polite.

    Uni Sushi has delicious food! I have never been disappointed with the sushi. The staff is always very friendly and usually knows the menu. I love this restaurant and go at least once a month, although it could be a little pricey if you have a big appetite! Not only do they serve freshly prepared sushi, they also have cooked Asian meals and some more American meals, so you could take a group of different tastes. I prefer the sushi. I usually just turn up and wait for a table, but using Open Table for the first time was great! All ran effortlessly. Will use again.

    Uni Sushi is a restaurant that I would take some of my more discerning relatives or friends to with the expectation that it would not disappoint. The decor and ambiance is very chic and moderately elegant in a retro modern/ oriental fusion fashion. When our evening plans suddenly changed, the reception personnel were very accommodating and without any issue changed my later expected reservation to an earlier (3 hours) one an had us (party of 6) seated within 10 minutes. Services was very professional and efficient. Waiter had a good menu knowledge and made good recommendations. Food was very good. The California roll was a little underwhelming (snow crab) but good. Pricing was okay. There is good local competition - so keep it up!

    We visited for Saturday night dinner. The place was packed. The noise level was very loud. Food was very good. Unfortunately, the service people are so busy, service is slow. The place was teeming with large groups with small children who were allowed to run wild throughout the place. Not the place for a quiet dinner.

    Food and service were excellent. Enjoyed the recommendations of our server. Food arrived promptly and was well timed with our drinks and appetizer. Only drawback was bland interior of the restaurant with no real view of anything special. It was a warm night and we chose to eat inside not only because of the weather but the outside eating area was plain and uninviting.

  • Not Uni's fault, but the children
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/9/2013
    Not Uni's fault, but the children in the next booth were obnoxious! Banging feet on booth, jumping around and extremely loud. Too bad their parents had zero control. It was more obnoxious when the parents just talked louder over the hollering children. Take your kids elsewhere if they are not behaved! Also, it was entirely too cold for nearly everyone in the back area where we were seated. That is hard to work around with it being 100++ outside and the server was more than happy to have it turned off for a bit. The food, as always, was fun, colorful, varied and delicious!! Thanks, Uni for a good spot for birthday celebrations.

    Don't bring in outside food for the little ones, they don't allow it. If one of your party is late, don't plan on being seated till everyone arrives. I love the food, I really dislike the management. But when your restaurant is on a wait most nights, management couldn't care less that I won't be back for a long, long time.

    Have been to Uni Sushi countless times and have thorougly enjoyed the food. However, yesterday was an off-night: edamame was overcooked and shrimp tempura tacos were flavorless. Also, found it a bit weird to be seated on the patio when we hadn't requested it in the reservation. It didn't seem so crowded inside that we couldn't have gotten a table inside. The patio was super quiet, with no music on despite there being speakers. Zero music made for zero ambiance, which was unfortunate, as we were celebrating a birthday.

    The restaurant's decor is gorgeous and, especially for a sushi restaurant, quite sumptious. Service was very attentive. I ordered a sashimi salad and a few pieces of eel sashimi. All of it was very fresh and delicious. The reasons for 4 of 5 in food and ambiance: 1) I find the menu to be a bit pricey for what it is, and 2) I dined for lunch, and for almost the entire time, I could hear the staff laughing behind me - I don't know if they were the servers or the sushi chefs (all voices were male,) but they were loud, at it got to be rather annoying.

    Music way too loud for a nice meal and very annoying. Asked what looked like the most senior person at hostess stand if it could be turned down and got the quick "No, this is how it always is and we've been here for years, it's always like this and we have no control over the volume...". We ended up asking our waiter and he fortunately knew enough to get it turned down. Food is usually pretty good but many different people dropping off food to tables and not even knowing which person gets which plate.
