Great food, great service! The chef makes a vegetarian roll that is fantastic. I don't eat fish and there was plenty yumminess on the menu that I could enjoy. My husband loves sushi and he really enjoys their daily specials. The only issue we asked our server to pace our order but still we got everything all at once.

The service was attentive and the sushi dishes were consistently excellent. We ordered the chefs tasting menu. I didn't get that it was priced for two. So when the bill came it was $75 short until I learned otherwise. So I was very pleased with the cost. The acoustics allow for relaxed conversation. Wonderful!

I am not a big sushi fan but my wife loves it so we went here and had a romantic dinner. This was my first time visiting and it is best to have reservations since this appears to be the preferred method of eating at this restaurant. We had several tasty pieces of sushi and then a very unique piece... More

Uchiko is amazing. I did the chef's menu and nothing tasted less than excellent. I live near Seattle and eat so much wonderful but this is definitely just as good as anything I eat here. Wish it was closer!

Some of the best food I've ever eaten. Some of the most expensive too! I can't do go to Uchiko often, but I can't wait to go back!

Prior to our stay in Austin, I read a lot of great reviews for Uchi and Uchiko. Given that we live in Vancouver, BC which has great Japanese food, we had our doubts. Due to a cold which left me with low energy, I forgot to make a reservation and making one last minute was impossible. When I phoned Uchiko... More

One of the best in Austin for sure. Service was very attentive and on-point since the moment we sat down for dinner. After some sake, we shared some of the dinner specials for the night, which were prepared beautifully. We tasted a little bit of every section of the menu and every item was unique, prepared with high attention to... More

I'm pretty sure I thought our server was nuts when he suggested that we try the brussel sprouts. However, 4 months later, we are STILL talking about them! Amazing dish. I loved every single plate that was in front of me.

If you are looking for seriously great Japanese food with a modern flair, look no further than this amazing restaurant. Austin is really blessed with some serious quality food and Uchi/Uchiko both stand out and deliver an impressive dining experience. I went with my wife and 2 young daughters, both of whom are sushi aficionados. We shared many outstanding dishes,... More
