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.

The Infatuation

Uchiko isn't a sequel to Uchi. It's more like a fraternal twin.

I give service only 3 starts even though our waiter was excellent and the food came out quickly...they made us wait nearly 30 min past our reservation time.

The food is always amazing. We allow the chef to select our menu and are never disappointed. The only downside side is it’s a bit noisy.

Food was amazing! The Edamame was life-alteringly good and an absolute must! I would highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar if you can, as it added so much to the experience! Our sushi Chef (hopefully this is the correct title, if not, my apologies) was wonderful... I asked a lot of annoying questions and he graciously answered all of them and provided awesome service! I would definitely make this a must do for date night or a 1 on 1 friend night out, you won't be disappointed. :)

Thank you Uchiko, I will definitely be back!

Unbelievably outstanding food, service and menu! At first the food was coming out quite fast, but when we asked for it to slow down they had no problem with that at all and didn’t rush us to finish.

The various sushi’s we ordered were amazing- we ended up letting our server choose ur entire dinner- best decision ever! He did exceptionally!

I think I just prefer traditional sushi over this creation which is trying to remove the simplicity of Japanese food.
