    With a great location, lovely interior space and a fetching menu, initially we had high expectations for this place. However, the meal was very mediocre, flavors were weak, portions minute and it was very challenging to get drinks and wine served. The final tab was sobering-over $200. Disappointing meal overall.

    We stumbled upon this restaurant and left already planning our next dinner there! The service was great- we sat at the sushi bar and did a Chef’s Choice menu and it was interesting, delicious and unexpected. We really enjoyed their nigiri pieces and the Roti rabbit curry was a standout. Definitely look forward to coming back and exploring the menu even more!

    Absolute worst fine dining experience I've ever had. Where to start? Counter where we sat was filthy. Server didn't know what a dry Martini was. Took three times. Charged us for 2 of them. We chose to go with Omakase. The chef who was running our meal seemed like we were an inconvenience. He was visibly perturbed when we told him what we couldn't eat. It wasn't an exhaustive list, just rabbit and pork. The food itself was either unremarkable or masturbatory. We ended the meal early and asked to see the manager. He was nice enough and apologized. We were not given any discounts on what we had already eaten, but we were given a gift card to come back. We were not told how much the card was worth but it doesn't really matter. I can't imagine spending another dime there.

    Excellent service - knowledgeable, non-intrusive but super attentive. A few pleasant surprises on the menu that actually worked. Desserts were innovative and very importantly, not too sweet. Overall, different but palatable. A little bit pricey since portions are on the small side. Thumbs up to the chef for having a gentle hand on seasoning but rather relying on technique and skill to boost flavors.

    The gems of the menu are outstanding (salmon butter bite, madai carpaccio, tuna tostada bite) but some of the other items are not as stellar. For this price and caliber of restaurant, I'd expect for all dishes to be knock-outs. A great vibe and friendly service. I'll be back and will continue to explore new things on the menu!

The waitstaff was respectful and super on top of bringing drinks, refilling water, removing empty dishes, etc. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Let me start by saying I just moved here from San Francisco although I am from Central Texas originally. So I know my way around Japanese and other cuisines. The creativity the kitchen showed was outstanding so my kudos. The problem was the menu. The descriptions of the dishes was so complicated and poorly explained on the menu, that our waiter spent a substantial amount of time explaining what we could order. He also insisted on serving the dishes in a certain order which was a bit militant in style, but I'll grudgingly say it was well orchestrated. Also, skip the ice tea--murky tasting. Must try the Bacon Lechon, Chawanmushi, and eggplant bite.

    In short, loved the food. All of it. Everything. Sushi, rice, tasters are all wonderful. However, we spent at least 30 minutes trying to figure out the mysterious menu, as did every other table near us. Servers weren't serving, they were all trying to decipher the cryptic menu and help people to figure out how to order. I like to roll the dice with a good waiter who guides me, but our waitress, while nice, was clearly new or simply overmatched to explain a complex menu and match to tastes. In addition, the wine and sake menu is just as complex, without information to make a choice, and again, our poor waitress had no idea and steered me to what ended up being the opposite sake I was looking for. I just switched to beer. Bottom line is great food, so good I'll go back, but wow do they need to either beef up staff quality or just explain the menu on the menu. Would make a far better experience.

    When we decided to book our trip to Austin, Kuneno was the first dinner reservation we made. We looked forward to tasting the menu and spending our last night in town at the restaurant. Being Filipino-Americans we were excited to experience an innovation of our staple comfort foods. Unfortunately, Kuneho had other plans for us. We requested to be seated at the chef’s table but ended up regretting this decision. Service was disappointing and certain courses were either late or never made it to our table. Additionally, we were seated by a friend of the restaurant so service was definitely favored towards them and we were ignored. We understand we all have friends but please don’t neglect other paying customers as you wait on your colleague - sending their food and cocktails out with twice the speed and refilling their water at every chance. We waited 20 minutes between our perfect bites course and our enoki sushi/toro sashimi to arrive. When our sushi course arrived, we noticed that we were given sushi and not the sashimi we had ordered. When we let the chef know, he goes “oh well we ran out of Toro.” They didn’t even try to remedy the situation and we continued to wait for our next courses to arrive. We ended up cancelling the rest of the order and left frustrated, sad, and hungry.

    So far one of my favorite places in Austin. and One of my favorite sushi restaurants, ever + some of the best sushi i've ever had. Every dish was gorgeous and delicious and mouth watering. The amberjack sashimi was to die for .. the chef picked out some dang good fish. The salmon was sweet and melt in your mouth, buttery. An amazing experience ! and very good lighting. I wish i lived in Austin so i could go back every week.

    Absolutely amazing dinner experience. Definitely one for the books on one of the top food experiences and meals I've had. Sitting at the counter and getting the opportunity to interact with Vu and Charlie was an experience in itself. Definitely something I would love to be able to do again. Pretty much ordered everything recommended to us. We ended up eating there for easily 2 1/2 hours with lots of laughs, smiles, and absolutely beautiful food.

    The small bites are definitely the thing to have here. High quality and a lot of flavor. The service is great and staff is pleasant. one of the rice dishes are pretty basic but the quality of the ingredient is terrific and, once again, the small bites are the thing to have.

    These guys were amazing!! Minutes after I arrived with my son to celebrate his birthday, the skies opened and a huge storm followed. By the time our cocktails arrived the power in the restaurant was out so the servers (With Logan taking the lead) brought candles over and illuminated our table. Food was off the hook. The sushi with foi Gras is Extraordinary, as were the other items. Craft cocktails were superb. The way the staff responded made this a memorable night and speaks volumes about how this crew takes care of their customers. Best ever!

    There is fine dining and then there is just a rip off. Two glasses of rose and 3 very small apps that were good but nothing mind blowing was $105.00 . The crudo portions were very thin and not enough for one person, let alone two. We decided to wrap it up after the apps and go elsewhere. The service and staff were good.

    I was planning a trip to Austin from Detroit MI and stumbled across Kuneho on line. After making the reservations, I realized the restaurant also goes by the name Qui. When arriving I was worried maybe the menu was different or I had arrived at the wrong place, but all was well. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxed, and the service was friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, although it might be a little pricy for some.
