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!

Uchiko, translated as "child of Uchi" from Japanese, is the next restaurant venture for renowned executive chef and sushi master Tyson Cole. Located in central Austin, this second location of Cole’s highly-praised Uchi presents the same excellence and energetic atmosphere of the original with some noteworthy additions. Uchiko will feature a new menu with Uchi’s same style of innovative, fresh cuisine, a main dining room that accepts reservations throughout the evening and an eat-in bar/café area.

Been to uchiko many times and love it. Last trip was a disappointment though. Food not up to the high standards and wait staff more distracted and slow than usual. And for the super price it’s a big miss. If I knew I would get the same food+experience next time I would not go back.

My second time at Uchiko. We ordered about 5 apps, 4 rolls, a few speciality nigiris, 3 entrees, and 2 desserts. The food was amazing quality similar to my first visit. My only “complaint” is the pacing of the dishes. We had a couple gaps of 15 mins or more between dishes, which we didn’t expect given the sheer number of orders but it was a very fairly busy so could explain the situation. Overall, took about 2.5 hrs with a 7:45 reservation for three. Would visit again.

Uchiko dinner could really be any of their amazing dishes, so many delicious choices that it may be hard to pick. Fortunately their staff always know what's good. So when I can sit down and describe the lightness or heaviness or flavor of a food and they bring me something, it's always right. And how helpful! It's such a relaxing and tasty experience to simply trust them because they have the well-founded confidence to order for adventurous eaters like me.

We have been to the Uchico social hour once before and found that the value for the food and service is especially a great deal. Our server couldn't have been more informative and kind and even treated us to an extra dessert since it was my wife's birthday. We will definitely be back for another special occasion!

Always wonderful food but had a really terrible server. My ask for a wind recommendation was “well is really depends on what you like” and she left it at that. My wine glass sat empty for a long time a d was going to order another with dessert but she never came back and brought the bill instead. Kinda the same with food recs - really no help and normally I would have ordered way more. The food was great of course but the service is just not what I expect from Uchiko.

Brandon’s service was amazing. We never felt rushed and he had a lot of patience walking us through the menu on our first visit. Food was spectacular and loved the atmosphere. Perfect for date night. Even though your seating is close, the noise level helped drown out surrounding conversations. We will be back!

Service was terrible, the waitress did not ask if we had been then before or asked if we had any questions about the menu. Once we ordered it took almost an hour to get two sushi rolls. We had said we were celebrating a birthday and they did not give us a complementary dessert or anything. Food was good but experience was terrible.

We went with the Omakase. It was great. I think it was planned for 10 courses, but we actually got 13 (a couple for free since it was our anniversary). We also had a sake pairing that was great. Waiter was very knowledgeable. The only complaint is the courses were served a little too quickly. We were still working on the previous course when they'd bring the new one. And these are small courses, so the serving was really rapid fire.

Uchiko is an amazing outing. Servers Marco, Alejandro & Tim is whom we always sit with, these guys are remarkable. I highly recommend a great sushi dinner in ones of these gentleman’s sections. Hands down best sushi I’ve had, over nobu Malibu, his sister restaurant in Denver and Many other highly rates spots in Houston.

Awful service. Had a reservation, arrived early, and yet did not receive any of our ordered food for 45 mins. Ruined a special occasion so we left without eating a bite. The point of sushi is to bring them out in small portions sequentially. Restaurant 101 - keep food in front of your customer. I expected much better from such a highly rated and priced restaurant.
