Fantastic! Amazing layering of flavors and great HH menu that allows for more tasting.
Uchi is reliability great! It’s my business meeting/happy hour spot!
Awesome!! Just completely awesome!!
Every year - a trip to Austin comes and a reservation is made at Uchi. The best sushi in America is right here in Texas...I know, but it’s true.
Uchi didn’t disappoint (it never does). The ambiance is beautiful and fun, the service is warm and helpful (even the food runners take extra time to explain the dish, which is appreciated). Our server Arvin did a great job of guiding our evening, and his recommendations when we were torn were spot on (though I think this aspect of his job is quite easy!).
I could eat here several times a week! Excellent food and helpful, knowledgeable servers. I love the unique way they construct their fresh sushi!
Excellent in every way. Can’t recommend high enough. Enough said.
Went here for the first time in a very long time. Everything here is always amazing. Check your normal sushi expectations at the door and expect amazing dishes all astound. Order lots of things and try new things - you absolutely will not be let down! Like the LEGO Movie says “everything is awesome”!
Service was prompt and wait staff attentive while the peak of sxsw was in full effect. The food was excellent in both presentation and deliciousness. Sake hour (5-6:30) is best, if you’re planning on going out on the town later or want a taste of amazing cuisine without breaking your piggy bank.
Our server last night was incredible! She sent us such an incredible feast and she was so knowledgeable, funny and efficient. Such a gem!
If Michelin did Texas they'd have a star! Fantastic food and even better service. If you are feeling adventurous I highly recommend letting the server choose your courses. Ask for Mandy if she's available!
I made a reservation to Uchi for my boyfriend’s birthday and was extremely satisfied with the food and service! Our waiter Noland was very attentive and provided great menu recommendations. Thank you for helping us celebrate his birthday and make the night memorable!
We always choose Uchi for our special occasions! The servers give perfect recommendations and they are always friendly and professional. The food is unlike anywhere else. They pack so much unique flavor into each bite.
Amazing all around
The flavors are so well balanced that you will not Need nor will you find soy sauce or wasabi on the table. Really great service and a relaxed pace.
Over rated and loud
Best Sushi, period. I’ve had a lot of great sushi/sashimi all across the country, Uchi was hands down the best. Very unexpected in Austin. Ultra fresh and prepared as if you were eating in a great French restaurant. Not cheap, and reservations are at a premium. We had a 9:00 reservation and the place was rocking. We chose the sushi preparation bar and got great service. Although we couldn’t go wrong with anything we picked, the sliced flounder sashimi melted in your mouth.
Food was great, not spectacular. Service was spotty actually. Staff/Kitchen weren’t synced or something. Took a long time between dishes/orders. Out waiter disappeared a few times and wondered herself why out food wasn’t out. We’d go back and sit at sushi bar next time.
The food was amazing and Arvind, as usual, provided the BEST service. It's so nice to come in and see familiar faces that have grown with Uchi and Uchiko, it makes us feel like we are really a part of the Uchi family and why it's our favorite restaurant on earth.
Best sushi I’ve had in years! Amazing chefs, great service, and the product quality is mind blowing. The fish stands on its own here.
Service and food were great! Mark behind the sushi bar was friendly and took great care of us. We also didn't feel rushed at all.
We came in to town to decide whether or not to accept a job transfer to the Austin area and capped our trip off with a dinner at Uchi. We ordered the chefs 6 course tasting and it was nothing short of fantastic! Our waiter Nolan was phenomenal! So glad we accepted the job and will return to Uchi for sure!
Good service, the 10 course tasting menu and wine list was nice as well. Noise level was a bit high but good atmosphere.
Uchi is my favorite restaurant in Austin. We always grab a shag roll and the brussel sprouts are amazing. Uchi never disappoints and as soon as I leave I find that I am already planning a trip back!
Absolutely unreal. Every bite was incredible. My girlfriend actually teared up after eating her sushi she was so happy.
Food is good. However, the portions are quite small for the price. Food tasted great, but i think if they provided decent portions for the money charged, experience would have been quite worth it.
Father daughter date at its finest. Has become a regular venue when I am in town for a visit. Excellent as usual. Our server Mandy was exceptional and provided for a great evening.
Celebrated my birthday and our second year wedding anniversary all in one magical night. We moved to ATX from Cali and always had a hard time finding good, quality sushi... that all changed during our first of many visits to Uchi. Great ambiance, food is amazing, staff are the nicest people we’ve met here so far and the drinks/cocktails are great. Walu Walu is an amazing fish dish and is available during happy hour and the regular menu. Their cheesecake and sorbet dessert plate is to die for! Happy to call this place our new home for sushi, the staff is definitely friends now.
Saw all the great reviews and was excited to try this place. Too much rice and fish did not taste fresh.
I have never had ant type of Sushi, so was the beat way to start a new love. Every dish was amazing I was never let down!
I enjoyed our meal at Uchi very much. We had our reservation while they still had Happy Hour going on, which meant we got to enjoy very cheap drinks with our food. We ordered food from the happy hour menu, but the main menu had so much to offer and we didn't want to have a limited experience. I especially enjoyed the snow crab with brown butter, the uni, and the hot rock wagyu beef.
This was our first Uchi experience celebrating a late Valentine’s Day! I have not stopped talking about the wonderful experience we had - from the food, to the service and everything in between. It was one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had yet. If you want to feel special AND have the most phenomenal mixtures for your taste buds, this is the place to be!
We let the waiter/chef choose the items for the evening (an omakase of sorts). Have always done it this way with exceptional experiences five times prior. However this time the dishes chosen were mediocre (with the exception of 2 dishes). Tab rounded out to about $550 for a party of 4 (only one bottle of $50 wine included). Felt the food did not live up to the price tag this go around.
Absolutely fabulous meal, great sake, wonderful evening. Will definitely be back the next time I’m in Austin!
Exceptional tastes, flavors and presentations, likely the best sushi on the continent !!!!
Best food we had while visiting Austin!!
Delicious as usual! We have learned the hard way that we need to make a reservation, even for Saki Social Hour! We were there right at 5:00 and were amazed at how many people had reservations at 5:00! Enjoyed all of our treats, especially the coconut soup and the Wagyu beef on the hot rock!
Uchi is a go to date spot for us and it is always a winner as it truly does live up to the hype. Best sushi in Austin and one of my favorite dining experiences I've ever had. Amazing quality of food and hands down great service. Servers are willing to customize your tasting menu to not only accommodate allergies but dislikes. Highly recommended. Do the tasting menu on your first go!
The greatest sushi I’ve ever had! We had the six course tasting menu and added an additional sushi roll, and it was the perfect amount of food. The Tokyo mule was an excellent cocktail. Service was wonderful as well! Well worth the price.
The food is just fantastic!
