Translated from the Japanese word “home,” the original Uchi is located in a refurbished South Austin bungalow.

Reservations are encouraged and can be made up to 1 month in advance for parties of up to 12 guests. Walk-in seating is limited to the Sushi Bar and is subject to wait times. Patio seating is weather permitting and may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. We look forward to serving you, Kanpai!

    We've wanted to make a trip to Uchi for quite sometime now. We live out of town and never got lucky enough to just pop in and they have an open spot, so we made our reservation about a month before our planned night out. Loved being there for Happy Hour too! So many great options! The flavors were so dreamy, and the service was amazing. We're looking forward to going back, and eveng trying out Uchiko next!

    As always uchi is a wonderful experience, from the moment you walk into the door you feel warm, welcome and invited to immerse yourselves into a quality experience. The food is fresh, vibrant and full of flavor. Everything from Japanese 77s, sakes, and food alike is brought and delivered by a team who knows the food, and has utmost confidence in answering questions for us. A member of our party had a crustacean allergy and the server graciously made accommodations and ensured that our food runners and servers clearly outlined which food was safe for her to enjoy. Our server and the manager were so genuine and sweet, our server was top notch and we cannot wait to be back to Uchi!

    Service and food were exceptional, truly some of the best sushi I’ve experienced. Staff was kind, very tentative and informative with any questions I had about the menu, as well as good drink pairings. Once rush hour hit it was pretty noisy and the service slowed down a bit, but is to be expected. Took my wife here for her birthday and gave us a couple of very delicious, complimentary entrée and dessert. Overall I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a casual but fine japanese dining experience, the fish is delivered daily from overseas, and is shown through the quality of the dishes, as well as the price. It is well worth it. These photos don’t do the food justice (it was dark, so the photo quality isn’t as great) just have to try it!

    Always a stunning experience. It's hard to rate the value with more stars since it is SOOOOO expensive, but I'm willing to do it every once and again. I wish I could afford it more because I'd be a regular if I could! The waiter, Chance, was excellent - unobtrusive but attentive. They gave us two freebies since our table was not ready at our reserved time.

    I think Uchi is my favorite restaurant in Austin. It’s a must when I’m in town. My family brought me for my birthday and once again it didn’t disappoint. From the broccoli bites and grilled edamame at the beginning to the dessert (candy bar is awesome) it was an experience. New flavors, new tastes in a word Awesome (as always). Our server really helped to guide us through the menu.

    Creative and tasty food and meals presentation. But a bit pricey for the food being served and the rather dull dinner room : there is a need to add partitions between tables to decrease noise and increase privacy. this will create a much better denier experience ! Service was great . Now comparing places, Lucky Robot on So Co offers the same creativity and savory food at a much more engaging venue. and the overall value is also better.

    It was amazing! We chose the tasting menu and were blown away with each plate! Not only did they look like works of art, they were equally delicious. Our server, Alexis was amazing and provided our evening with enough space to enjoy each plate but stayed close by to meet our every request. Until next time!
