We are proud to announce...
Chef Tyson Cole, winner of the 2011 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef Southwest--Thank you Uchi and Uchiko family and friends for your support!


Uchi showcases the culinary talents of executive chef and sushi master Tyson Cole, winner of the "best new chef in America 2005" by Food and Wine magazine. His exciting menu expands on the Japanese tradition with new flavors and influences. Uchi means "house," and like many sushi bars in Japan, Uchi is located in a refurbished old home. Its vibrant design adds a fresh dimension to the neighborhood and has been warmly received by Austin's diverse dining crowd.



Uchi accepts a very limited number of reservations and reserves the majority of the dining room for walk-in availability. Most seating is done on a first-come, first-serve basis. All parties must be complete before being seated.

I was holding a business dinner for a client, that I just met a few days prior. In which he decided on investment property in Austin sight-seen from Houston.in 5 days of wanting to take financial possession of property.. The courses came out in large inconsistent gaps of time, the sake I guess filled me up cause I got tired of waiting for another beautiful taste of food. teased me outta there with the sake having taken control at the point! dont think I made it but for about 6 courses. And didn't feel taken very well care of. even though I always tip 50% in those situations. cause we dont know if their really is any in control of the place. So I tipped the waitress in hopes she is the reason things were good. of if saving the kitchen 4 courses that i walked on. would be a tip in homage to the hard working BOH people from have to stay and wait for slow service to serve a 10 course meal.

Uchi has amazing options and very good quality sashimi and nigiri. I love taking my friends who have never been to try and be amazed. But this last time we had a server named Sam, who had to be new and was VERY inexperienced. Over the course of 2 hrs, she came to our table twice, never refilled our water bottle/container, and didn't ask us nigiri quantities therefore misunderstood and brought us more than ordered. She wasn't friendly and became a bit passive aggressive when we told her we had not ordered that many nigiri.

Uchi is always outstanding. No matter what they bring to the table, I know it is going to be delicious and unique. We always get the chefs tasting menu so that we get to try new things that we may not have ordered on our own. The servers are very knowledgeable and attentive and go out of their way to make sure you have a great experience. The only complaint I have about Uchi is that is can be very loud, to the point where you pretty much have to yell to the person across the table from you to have a conversation. The noise is a small price to pay though for the rest of the experience.
