Absolutely fabulous place for sushi here in Houston. We love sushi/sashimi and we have traveled everywhere for fresh sashimi (including Japan!), and we loved the quality of the fish at Uchi. The staff is amazing as well. They will help you order the best items off the menu if you need the help. Highly recommend!

It's been years since I've been here and it was just as good as I remembered. The food was spectacular - I couldn't tell you what was my favorite because it all was so good. The waiter was personable and very helpful in recommending dishes to us. All the waiters who brought our food gave detailed descriptions and supplied us with new plates every so often.

Awesome food, great recommendations of our waiter, and they have a gift for us, because it was our anniversary.

Wonderful, amazing, innovative food and flavors as always , and brought out at the perfect pacing. Most importantly, we loved our waiter and the compassion he showed when my mom started crying since my father passed away a week ago. He offered her tea, and even though she declined , he brought it out anyway. It is his mother’s favorite tea and it has no caffeine since we had late reservations. My mom loved the tea and the food brightened her mood as the night proceeded. We will definitely be back soon.

Food was exceptional. Atmosphere was wonderful. All of the staff were terrific, but our server Huan was terrible. He was inattentive, rude, and neglected us to the point that our water carafe was empty for over 30 mins. Every other server was extremely nice and welcoming, but Huan didn't even want to serve us. Not sure what the problem was, because he was very friendly to the guests behind us but it was my fiance's birthday, everyone told her happy birthday but him. It was embarrassing when she asked me if he and I knew each other or something. Besides that, everything was amazing and we even ordered seconds. We'll definitely come back for the food but avoid this guy altogether.

Went to dinner with my family and had the best experience. My family and I are sushi connoisseurs and we absolutely had the best sushi here. We did the chefs tastings and everything they brought out was great and was the perfect amount for all of us. I felt like we got to experience a variety of tasty dishes.

Fantastic experience. The food and the service were top notch. Our waiter Nick made this a very special and memorable experience. We had the 10 course Omakasa and it was out of this world, fantastic flavors, presentation and diversity. Highly recommended. Will definitely go again, this restaurant has been added to our all time top 10 list.

This restaurant is over the top in gourmet quality and service, and price of course (you can easily spend $400 for dinner for two). Reservation is a must and sought after. We were lucky to get in.
