What a fun restaurant! You walk into a low light room with a circular sushi bar surrounded by banks of tables. The sushi is very imaginative, made with a large variety of fresh fish with interesting combinations and special sauces and toppings. We tried individual red snapper pieces with the taste enhanced by the toppings. The Tata roll made with three kinds of fish flavored with herbs and avocado had a spicy taste with an interesting texture. The Hot Rock meat dish was so fun. They brought a small flat rock that was heated in a fire and then we cooked small pieces of steak on it. We tried a cold dish with thin slices of tuna rolled together in a sweet sour sauce that enhanced the fresh tuna taste. We finished with green tea moochi. It was memorial experience.

Our waiter John was AWESOME!!! He was so friendly & accommodating. We had the lunchbox specials & the food was fresh & delicious. It was my Birthday & our waiter John brought us a plate of Mochi to celebrate. This is my favorite Sushi restaurant in Houston!

Value for money was below par to poor. The price of sushi was very expensive but there was nothing special about it. The sushi rolls cost $14 but for that kind of money they were not special. Overall - we were disappointed and won't be returning. You might be better off going to Soma Sushi and finding better Sushi Rolls at $6.

Uptown has been our favorite place for sushi for several years. With the new redesign, it is even more inviting. The fish was extremely fresh, and service was amazing. Cannot recommend the signature nigiri enough

I had not been dining here for a while, and after the renovation that they did. The place has a warmer atmosphere. The food has improved thanks to both chefs Fernando and Abel, that keep a very good quality control of both raw material and consistency of their food, like in sister restaurant Uni Sushi up in the Woodlands. I was definitively a great surprise and I will be coming back soon!!

The food was very good as always and our server was wonderful. Can't say that I love what they have done with the decor. I liked it better before. Just my personal preference. Still love the place.

I wanted a place to impress a client, and I just love the ambiance at this place. Having 2 levels makes the place feel like a "see and be seen" hot spot. Oh yes... and the sushi is the bomb-diggity.

So happy so finally see this place open after renovation. Perhaps we ordered the wrong sushi’s bc we were not pleased at all. Last thing we ordered was bronzini , a very tasteful and exquisite fish. Sadly, the meat was BARELY there and it was drenched with soy sauce in the arugula. They had a fried catfish before they closed and I’m upset the bronzini didn’t make the cut. Service was extremely lagged and delayed, I know they have better days. But the bronzini was the biggest let down .

Food was good, as always, service was slow and server was disinterested even go the order wrong.
I guess Monday lunchtime isn’t a good time.

One of our first date nights with our 1 month old. They accommodated us and sat us at a table that was easy to put a stroller next to.

Well you can always tell how good a restaurant is by their worst reviews, in this case service. I had a reservation and was promptly seated. Its memorial day so theres only 5 tables seated, the place is virtually empty. After I was sat, no one came to start an order or explain the menu, hell just even acknowledge my existence. After 5-10 mins someone gave me water, no waiter. After 20min a white family were sat and the waiter immediately ran to the table, started their drink order and talked about the menu. At that point I saw that my money wasn't welcomed here and left.

The nigiri was not the best quality for the prices they charge. The foie was dry and overcooked. The uni had gone bad and did not taste right. I would not come here for nigiri at all.

The Sushi has improved. The decor is mediocre at best and it is more family oriented and not date night
dining. The open space provides noise and it is not for fine dining .

Fantastic! After a mediocre last outing there, service, and more importantly, food were top-notch this night. Off-menu items were prepared properly, and the custom roll we ordered was perfectly made. One star knocked off service because our server removed my friend's lychee martini before she was completely done with it. Other than that hiccup, everything was perfect.
