    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!

    We were on vacation and decided to check this place out. The chicken Ramen was outstanding! And the pork belly steamed buns were fantastic! We also tried the quail and edamame. I don’t think I would get the quail again but the edamame was good. My only complaint is that it was a little too dark for me.

    Food was excellent. Quality drink menu really ties in the concept, as well as well-read staff, bringing stories into fun and daring dishes. My wife and I have a tough time not getting the whole menu. Real quick ticket time ties in this the quality of this staff and their strong concept.

    The means is not particularly broad, but each dish seems unique and in total, it is quite a presentation. We had cabage pancakes, a special appetizer. For mains we had rib buns and hot pork ramen. All four dishes were great. Our waiter was terrific also.

    Nice cocktail menu and shareable plates. Didn’t try the ramen but the edamame, hamachi and especially the cabbage were very tasty. We’ll be back. Great place for higher quality meal that doesn’t take too long or break the bank. Good work, folks.

    This place is great. We changed our reservations 2-3 times one the same day. They kept saying "no problem". Place was packed. Seems like a new build out (modern Asian decor). Service was great (from hostess, to bartender, to waitress, to busser). 2x chicken ramen, 2x veggie ramen, 1 special pork belly over rice with coconut peanut curry, pork belly bun, shrimp bun, grilled shishito pepper. All great. Everyone loved it.

    We went with a party of 8. We are locals to Savannah and have heard a lot of good things about Ukiyo. The food and service with Nick were amazing!! We really enjoyed the drinks and wine selections. Our only complaint is about the hostess. We didn’t get her name. Her demeanor was cold upon arrival. She started to seat us at a high top table, but we asked if we could sit at a lower table. We had some older people in our group and we needed chairs with backs on them. She literally rolled her eyes and said “I guess so”. Our entire party noticed her bad attitude and were confused by it. I would suggest some customer service training for the front staff. Otherwise, everything else was perfect.

    The hot chicken. Oooohhhhh the hot chicken. And the chicken ramen. Y’all are killing it. The ambiance, the friendly service, the delicious food, the super tasty glass of wine that was so good I had three and now I can’t remember what it was, lol. 10/10 will be back to eat my way through the menu! (Honorable mention to the smashed cucumbers!)

    So thrilled to have this fantastic addition to Savannah’s restaurant scene. We have nothing like it and it is absolutely outstanding. The selection and fusion of flavors lift beautifully from the typical sushi bar in fact there is no sushi at this Japanese restaurant. I sincerely hope they offer a lunch service in the fall because it is hard to get a reservation but worth the wait.
