When Heather met Sushi

Okay, I've met sushi before - but never like this. Uchi is an unpretentious and surprising tour de force! Every server is passionate and knowledgable about every dish - providing helpful suggestions and serving as guides on this amazing flavour ride.

We asked the waiter to select for us with exception that we requested no freshwater fish. Just a personal preference. There was a great surprise every time he came back to serve us. This was our first time at Uchi, and we cannot wait to go back for another special occasion.

The atmosphere at Uchi is amazing and the staff is awesome. The food was melt in your mouth spectacular. I really like the tapas style of food selection. Top quality experience.

Perfect presentation, delicious taste, and excellent service all add up to an experience that was amazing-and is every time we visit. Try the brussel sprouts-they are awesome!

Food and service are first class. Nice atmosphere. You can spot some Houston celebrities from time to time. Difficult self-parking and have valet parking as well.

I repeat: Don't let this be the first time you try sushi! I made this mistake and Uchi has pretty much ruined all other sushi for me. I was reluctant to ever try sushi. But in the spirit of YOLO, I decided to try Uchi. I was very much on the fence about going there. And the fact that we... More

This was my first trip to Uchi in Houston and it exceeded my expectations. We made it for most of happy hour (before 6:30) and pretty much went down the list of menu items. All have unique flavor combinations, but a couple of my favorites include the ham and eggs and the walu walu. Prices are reasonable but you may... More

Went there for the gf's birthday. We ordered the 6 course recommended menu and it was amazing. The Sea Bass and its broth was one of the best things we have ever tasted. I'm not even a dessert person, and the Fried Milk dessert was out of this world. They also gave us a complimentary birthday cake with 3 different... More

This was a celebration dinner for us, and Uchi did not disappoint. The sushi was excellent -- top quality. The warm dishes were delicious. The foie gras was AMAZING. I will be dreaming about it for a long time to come! I do not like Brussels sprouts at all but the Brussels sprouts here are fantastic. The only miss was... More

This is our second visit to Uchi Houston . The first time we were seated at the bar and if memory serves me well we vowed never to come back . That was several years ago . Well I forgot and booked a table for three . Our party included my wife and our 16 year old Foodie grandson. It... More
