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.

Haven’t been in a few years, seems the overall quality of sashimi has gone down. It wasn’t bad, but for the price there are much better places in Austin.

As always, the food was inventive, delicious, and perfectly executed. On this particular visit, the service was a little inconsistent, but that did nothing to spoil an enjoyable meal.

The quality of the food was exceptional. We walked away feeling very good about what we ate which says a lot about a restaurant. Service was prompt and good. Since the place is small and tables are close by the noise level was a bit high but it did not bother us too much. Overall a great experience.

Food is fantastic, a little too overpriced but the value is worth it. Just wish I could get a little more for my money.

Must try sushi restaurant in Austin. The restaurant has a large selection/range of sushi for everyone. From the service to the food it was a very memorable experience. Our waiter was absolutely amazing his name is Brandon if your able to request someone he definitely went above and beyond to make sure our experience was amazing. And it was. Also for a sushi restaurant in Austin the price was very reasonable. We were able to splurge without breaking the bank.

We were excited to try Uchiko, but it fell flat. The service was the highlight...attentive without hovering. We ordered three rolls, the Brussels sprouts (the best dish), the gyotoro beef, and several drinks. Most dishes were bland. The noise was fine, though tables were a bit close together. We ended up going to Whataburger afterward since neither of us were satisfied. For the money, I would go elsewhere.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Uchiko. Brittany’s service was excellent. She took time to help us understand the menu and her timing of the delivery of the components of our dinner was perfect. All of the food was very good, but Brittany saved the best entree for the finale... take nabe. We included the wagyu short-rib with our take nabe, and the dish was superb! A close second was the 72 Hour Wagyu short rib nigiri, followed by Brittany’s suggestion of the P-38 roll.

Thank you Uchiko, and Brittany.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Service was also excellent and I really appreciated my server’s efficiency and suggestions. You will not find these delicious and inventive dishes at other sushi places! Also want to express my appreciation to the reservations staff for accommodating me when I called to let them know I’d be a bit late.

Been going to Uchiko for years, but the past couple times we’ve been the service has been achingly slow. I’m all for a leisurely meal, but it got kind of ridiculous. Food is great, but the size of the pieces seem to be getting smaller. Might take a break and try something new for a bit.

As always the food was tremendous as was the service. Our only issue is the noise level. You cannot hear yourself think let alone hear someone across from you. Next time we will try and get a quieter area if that is possible.

We had such an amazing server that night! She made our experience amazing. Additionally- they accommodated us late as our Lyft driver got lost! There were a few things that made the experience less that a 5 star.
1. The noise level is so high, we could hardly hear each other speak
2. We preferred the food a Uchi to Uchiko. The food at Uchi amazing. Uchiko had wonderful food but without the WOW factor. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF DESSERT!!

Overall- great experience but we still would rather dine at Uchi

Food was amazing, incredible, the best I've had in a LONG time. Service not so much, we got there for our reservation and our table wasn't ready, it took them like 15 min to seat us, then like 20 to even come to the table to take our drinks order. Food took a long time to get to the table, but once it was there, you kinda forget about everything else. It was more than amazing!

I love Uchi so was dying to try out Uchiko, and it did not disappoint. It’s a little busier and this louder than Uchi but you get the same amazing service, unbelievable sushi and delicious appetizers and desserts. A must for locals and visitors alike!

Our first time to visit and I must say that my wife and I were very pleased with all aspects of dining at Uchiko.

We had theater tickets and explained our timeline to our waiter Jeremy. Jeremy was an awesome example of a perfect waiter. He offered great suggestions and was spot on with all his recommendations.

P38 roll was awesome and I enjoyed the Short Ribs.

Please tell Jeremy we look forward to seeing him again.
