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.

Always the best choice in Austin for creative, fresh & exceptional cuisine. Service is always excellent. There is nothing to ever complain about u less you are not expecting the prices which are proportional to the experience.

Easy to make a reservation. Restaurant followed up to confirm via phone call, which was appreciated. Quick seating. Staff recommendations were great. Efficient in removing dishes that were no longer needed and refilling drinks. Food was amazing. Recommend the Brussels sprouts and short rib. Definitely worth the price. I would say more of a special occasion restaurant, for two reasons: the pricing and it would make the enjoyable experience that much more appreciated.

Uchiko never disappoints. From the Ko salad, the sushi, sashimi, and hot rock, and the deserts, this is still the best restaurant I have ever had the pleasure to eat at in the sixty plus years I have been eating out. We happened to be in New York city earlier this year, so we thought we would try one of the top Japanese restaurants there. It sucked compared to Uchiko, and was more expensive. Uchiko. I never miss an opportunity to eat there each time I visit Austin. Go. Enjoy.

You definitely can’t say anything negative about the Uchiko experience. If one COULD say something was a con, maybe the price? But, you get what you pay for and everything we had was absolutely amazing and worth every penny.

We went in with no plan, we told our server (Savannah) the kind of items we like at our usual sushi spot (Soto) and told Savannah to bring us courses she’d recommend. She did not disappoint! Her knowledge, enthusiasm and selections made our date night that much more enjoyable and we plan to go back soon.

Both Uchi and Uchiko are amazing in their own right and at both spots the service and food is impeccable. Uchiko is a bit more spacious and relaxed. Overall, it was amazing fish highlighted in the cleanest most stunning ways. If you love all you can eat this is not your speed. If you love sashimi and want to know how fish you won't find at any sushi joint tastes like then you're in for a treat.

My fiance and I love this place! We've been a handful of times and love to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays here. Our waiter was incredibly kind to us, and we were celebrating our 6 year anniversary. He brought us complimentary rose which was delicious! The incredible food, atmosphere, and service will keep us always coming back! Just get ready to spend $$$.

Food was really great, except one item. BUT I believe that was a preference not the food itself. Just read or ask for descriptions for items of which you may not have experience.

The only thing I found very disturbing was that my guest's main meal or entree came about 15 min before mine. Server said another server picked up my entree. In the meantime my guest's food/fish became cold and he had to eat without me. Meanwhile the table next to me received a complementary side just for being a new guest. "Try this, on the house" the server said. Wow! We were first time guest too.
