    Great drinks and food. The service was spot on and great. The ramen portions are very generous and quite delicious. Other sides were outstanding as well, namely the chilled peanut noodles. Definitely worth a visit.

    This place always knocks it out of the park, incredible food, well curated drink menu, service is always quick and friendly. I highly recommend their chicken karaage so crispy and flavorful and the selection of ramens is delicious and warms the soul. It’s quickly become one of my favorite spots. Check it out!!

    Ukiyo is an unusual and very fresh dining experience. As someone who struggles with unconventional dishes, I truly enjoyed everything we ordered. There was six of us and we ordered 6 different small plates and a few ramen dishes to share. It was more than enough food. All of us thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Ukiyo is by far the best Ramen Restaurant in Savannah. Fresh ingredients, experienced chefs, and above-par ambiance. The soups are rich in flavor and the noodles are perfection. Each bowl seems to be a handcrafted masterpiece. I watched the chef add his flair to each item he plated (see bluefin). I tried the kimchi ramen with kara-age chicken. The spice was a seven out of ten. Clearing any sinuses I may or may not have had. It also comes in mild for those with a less sophisticated palate. King Salmon melted off the skewer. I can't seem to describe the aioli used but I made a salad using the remaining garnish. Don't judge me. I finished my night with the pork belly rice I ran out of room. I loved it but will always choose the blue crab rice. I didn't try the bluefin tuna but, I'm saving that for another visit. Ukiyo is unmatched here in Savannah.

    We ate dinner here while visiting Savannah. The food was phenomenal. We ordered a bunch of shareables: sashimi, pork belly buns, edamame, and okanomiyaki with crab meat. Service was great, despite being busy. The only downside was the close proximity of tables. I felt, at times, that I couldn’t hear the person I was at dinner with because we were practically in the laps of people on either side of us. Overall, amazing experience and cannot wait to go back.

    Very disappointed in the food. The chicken ramen was not good. Noodles undercooked, broth did not taste great. I’ve had much better ramen before. The edamame was mid tier. The pork belly buns were very good.

    It was a pretty good experience overall. The only issue I had was after I booked reservations for inside they treated me as if I had no reservations at all. They ended seating us outside after all and the service was pretty delayed although the server was kind.

    Ugh. This pains me to write. I LOVE the brand. I’m a regular at all of the brands other restaurants. We waited to try this restaurant to give them time to work out any kinks new restaurants may have. We made reservations and guaranteed with a credit card. I later received a message to confirm. I was busy and forgot about it but thought no biggie, I guaranteed w a card. Then I received a call to confirm the reservation. Seems overly pushy and I found it a bit annoying. Why force me to put a card to guarantee the res if you’re going to contact me multiple times to confirm? Do one or the other. We tell them it’s our anniversary and would like a quieter table, if at all possible. We get there and they’re about half full. They seat us at the very front table where it almost seems out of place and right under a vent. About 15 minutes in, a line forms and people are waiting all around. So of course, nothing quiet about it. Which I just don’t particularly understand with a half full restaurant at check in. Moving on. We order 2 drinks, 2 apps, 2 entrees, and a chili bomb. 1 app was good. EVERYTHING else was completely flavorless. The manager came over to bring the food and asked if I wanted the chili bomb. I told her yes and 5 minutes later she was at another table? We finally got our waitresses attention and got the chili bomb for the last few bites of the meal (literally 3 bites left). We were still charged $3 for the chili bomb that was rendered practically useless at that point. It felt like it was penny pinching customers at that point. The staff was distracted and was absolutely not there for an experience. Not once did anyone check on us or even ask how we enjoyed anything. I am beyond disappointed in the experience. Our anniversary and first time without the baby in 6 months and we didn’t enjoy it at all. To be perfectly candid, we ended up grabbing food on our way home because we were still hungry and unsatisfied.

    A Savannah Gem, a MUST TRY from a Savannah local. Authentic, stunning, amazing service. Best Japanese I have ever had. Perfect for a date or for a fun night. I’m typically a person who prefers to eat at home but I’m already planning my next reservation with them!!! If you are stuck between this place and somewhere else, choose Ukiyo!

    The volume was a bit loud and unexpected. We sat in the back of the restaurant away from people so it was very loud. It was our first time eating here and the chef’s special blue fin tuna was delicious. We also ordered the wagyu buns and they were fantastic.

    Solid experience. The restaurant offers a couple sashimi plates, but it’s very much a ramen-focused menu. Food was good, staff was good, but it was crazy loud. They played multiple heavy metal songs that definitely caught us off guard.

    Service and ambiance was great! Food was really good too. It needed a touch of salt on some things, but all in all delicious! The Bluefin Tuna Tataki was incredible, and my personal favorite. The flavors and balance of the dish were top notch. My husband really enjoyed the blended whiskey as well. Definitely recommend, and will return.

    The Hamachi was superb. Lychee cosmo perfect balance. Waygu beef bun yummy, large portion, as was the cabbage/scallion pancake. Tuna tataki not to my liking - seemed a little tough if that makes sense. Can't wait to try more dishes!
