About the restaurant
:: ADDITIONAL RESERVATIONS AVAILABLE ON RESTAURANT WEBSITE ::

Uchiko is the sister restaurant to Tyson Cole’s original Uchi. It matches that restaurant’s dedication to food, wine, and service, but it has a Japanese farmhouse aesthetic with crafted materials and warm finishes to round out a completely updated setting. The chef team at Uchiko has created a brand new selection of composed dishes and sushi, taken from ideas and plates created at Uchi. Uchiko is Uchi rede­fined. Reservations are encouraged and can be booked online up to 1 month in advance. Walk-in bar seating is available 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!

Amazing. Chef and staff were awesome. Took a date and it was one of the best I’ve ever been on. Good was beyond excellent. Staff was engaging and fun. My date was starting to get full with it being 20 courses and the chef prepared hers first at a smaller portion so she wouldn’t fill up before the desert. Price is justified for special occasions. Took about 2.5-3 hours. Was amazing. Cheers to Chef Endo

One of the best dining experiences we have had in Austin. From the beginning we were treated to excellent service that was only matched by the excellence in the food. Our server Will was very attentive and had great recommendations. The manager stopped by just to say hello. Even the hostess from the beginning was warm and friendly. Perfect night all the way around

About the restaurant
WELCOME TO THE SAZAN RAMEN!

“The skill behind ramen is a practiced art and I wanted the interiors to reflect the craft that goes into the creation of a perfect bowl. The aesthetic of the space takes Japanese modern interiors with a nod to Scandinavian hygge and French architecture to create an inviting space. An aside cocktail bar gives the space intimacy and a comfortable area for diners to relax before being seated.”

Outstanding service, they called me at my reservation time to let me know my table was ready, when ordering the appetizer it was accidentally forgotten, which they made up for it by still bringing it and taking it off the tab, very well handled! To top it off I believe the manager that was there that night had brought us mochi for dessert on the house as well. A1 service and the ramen was perfect as always. Will definitely be coming back
