Yummy Sushi

I love coming to Uchi for the Sake Social at 5:00. This place is one of the best sushi restaurants in Houston. Great service & ambiance. The hot rock wangyu, octopus, tuna tataki was delicious. The fried milk dessert was a great ending to the evening. I will definitely be going back!

Just visiting Houston for a yearly checkup and decided to check out trip advisor for a new restaurant and found Uchi. Went on a Sunday evening without a reservation and the hostesses were so lovely, took us right in and found us a table. Jessica, the ultimate waitress, took care of us. We decided to let her Order for us,... More

Amazing experience with absolutely high end food, great service and a very good vibe. The hot rock wangyu was incredible and also the tuna tataki was delicious. The 'fried milk' desert in the end simply blowed our minds away! This place is a MUST for all foodies visiting Houston!

I see why my co-worker boldly states Uchi is her favorite restaurant IN THE WORLD. It is phenomenal. The chef's nontraditional spin on sushi combined with the freshest ingredients and awesome ambience make Uchi a great place to enjoy a good sushi meal. Their Happy Hour (daily 5:00-6:30pm...called their Sake Social) is so cheap and we'll worth the indulgence. The... More

I loved the fried milk dessert and the sashimi on the hot stone we had. The happy hour menu is quite good, you can taste several different flavors and textures, and it's all good, pretty and tasty.

went there on a recommendation and were not disappointed. We sat at the bar which did impair the service. Amazing food!

I have eaten in some good restaurants, but this one was exceptional. Hard to get into and noisy as all American restaurants are, but once you sit down, the food experience overtakes everything else. We let the waiter bring us whatever he recommended (let's call it a tasting menu) and each dish was better than the last. Two weeks later,... More

My wife is obsessed with this place and, as some of the other reviewers have mentioned, Uchi is the new trendy (maybe not quite new anymore at the time of this writing) sushi place. They have good ambience and a trendy looking, yuppy-ish, young professional crowd. I'm not a foody but I'd describe their take on sushi as some form... More

We went to Uchi right when they opened at 5pm on a Wednesday for a birthday happy hour. If you can get there about 5-10 minutes before, do so as there is already a line to get in! I snagged a few chairs at the bar and started with one of they hh cocktails (kara kyuri) which was good. When... More

My son has been raving about this place for a year and my wife and I finally had the opportunity to dine there. First, we made reservations, which seems simple enough, but apparently many fail to do then are sour because of the long delay. Hello?
