    The best Japanese spot in town by far. Everything impresses. Great food, cocktails are always spot on, and a fantastic spot for a special occasion.

    My wife and I enjoyed our experience at Ukiyo. We were promptly and warmly greeted at soon as we entered and all staff we interacted with were very friendly. Our server Maxine was well versed about drinks and dishes, even preparation of specific meals. Food all came out in a timely manner and each dish had its own flavor profile and you can tell its freshly made. Recommend pork bao buns, peanut noodles and tonkotsu ramen. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    My husband and I had ramen bowls which were delicious. The edamame gyoza was also scrumptious. The other person we were with had the oysters. They were tiny. I’ve never seen such small oysters. I have no idea why they were like that. The decor is nice but the music was too loud. It was hard to communicate. We were having to yell at one another or wait for a lull in the music.

    We came here to celebrate my husbands birthday with some friends and had a great time! We ordered so many items off the menu and everything was hot and delicious! We ordered the edamame which is my favorite, the dumplings, the octopus balls, sushi rolls, fried rice, ramen, fried chicken, and the wagu with the fried rice! For drink we ordered many mocktails, which were amazing ! For my husbands birthday they didn’t have dessert so they brought out a cute espresso martini. We come once a month but this time we have the best time with our friends!

    Love this place! Perfect for date night or a large party. Started off with drinks at the bar, Theresa is amazing she is friendly and knowledgeable. Our drinks were delish. Our server Bri was sooo kind and attentive. We loved the bao buns, chicken Katsu, Salomon sushi, and especially the peanut noodles. Can’t wait to come back!

    Great hip/modern design and ambiance (this from to older ladies). Food was unusual and excellent. Tuna Nigiri was melt in your mouth. The crispy pork and sauce were excellent. And the strawberry rice/ice cream small dessert was inventive and deicious.

    Super nice restaurant in the Starland district. I was there early with a reservation on a Sunday - not crowded at all. I sat at the noodles bar and Veronica was my waitress - very nice and knowledgeable. I ordered sashimi mackerel and snapper and the sushi chef added yellowtail belly - complementary. Amazing. I had Udon noodles and oysters as well - very well prepared. I’ll definitely visit again when I’m in Savannah.

    Excellent service. The waiter was a little hard to hear above the ambient noise, but that was not their fault. The restaurant was very dark (we had to use our cell phone lights to see the menu), but once we ordered this was a nice mellow feel. Cucumber starter was very good, edamame was great, and the veggie ramen was good (needed a little seasoning but overall good). I wasn’t blown away so we might try other restaurants our next trip to Savannah.

    Really lovely and some of the best sushi we’ve had in the 912. We were wowed by the unusual flavors used with the the Unagi Nigiri, the house sake is wonderful, and the Magma Lobster was magnificent. I had a hand roll that was also great combination of texture and flavor. Everything was very fresh. We did add one of the specials to our order, it wasn’t our favorite, it was like a hush puppy with octopus inside and there was a lot of mushy filling inside with very little rubbery meat. But the charred carrots on top were so interesting! Impeccable service, not too loud, lovely ambiance. And they treated my son so well too. We will be back!

    Ukiyo is a fantastic Japanese fusion restaurant. I love the food and drink offerings, and the staff is all very friendly and dedicated to their craft. It's a blast to see into the open kitchen that the chefs and cooks work together so smoothly to create the amazing cuisine.

    Our recent dining experience at Ukiya left much to be desired. Despite having made a Resy reservation, the service was disappointingly slow. Upon arrival, my party was asked to wait for over 15 minutes because the table we were supposed to be seated at still had diners finishing their meal, despite there being two empty tables available throughout our wait. When we inquired about being seated at one of the empty tables, there was some hesitation from the staff, but we were eventually accommodated. Once seated, the slow service continued. After informing our waiter that we needed a moment to decide on our food selections, they failed to return for 20 minutes. This lack of attentiveness greatly detracted from the overall dining experience and left us feeling frustrated and overlooked. While the food at Ukiya was good and may have been enjoyable, the sluggish service overshadowed any positive aspects of our visit. Improvement in promptness and attentiveness to customers' needs is necessary to enhance the overall dining experience.

    This was probably my 4th time dining @ Ukiyo’s, the food is excellent. However this latest experience, as soon as we walked in (had reservations) the hostess stated due to overbooking our dining was limited to 1.5 hours! Once seated our server told us the restaurant was sold out of 4 items (they had been open 1 hour)? This restaurant is not on the cheaper side and because of the time limit, we felt rushed. I will definitely return because every business has a bad day. I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt.

    Ukiyo is a great addition to the neighborhood, offering creative and delicious plates for sharing, as well as entrees. We are forever grateful that they brought decent sushi to town! The cocktail list is solid, and the service is well-informed and welcoming, if at times on the slower side when busy. Make a reservation on weekends, or grab a seat at the bar. It is a cozy but upscale vibe worth the visit.

    The Service and ambiance were completely incredible but the only part that really wasn't up to my expectation was the style in which the food was served. We chose the fried rice and ramen and both seemed underwhelming. The rice seemed extra oily and the ramen didnt come through as authentic.

    I would recommend going with a group and maybe best for special occasions unless you have a lot of extra money to burn. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I tried several dishes and nothing really did it for me. Spent a little over $50, I left feeling like eating at my favorite hibachi place would have been a better option and could have saved a lot.

    My wife and I are locals and visited for the first time. From the edamame gyozas to the Pork belly Kimchi Ramen, to the sushi rolls, this place was fantastic! All the ingredients were fresh and the flavors/presentations were second to none. Generous portions made for great leftovers. And our server, Haley, was so engaging and knowledgeable about the entire menu. She really made the experience fun!! We are sold on Ukiyo and will definitely be going back!!
