Excellent quality of products used, and next to the traditional sushi and sashimi some alternative ways of preparing them.

We called to get a reservation the week before but were told that they book about 3 weeks in advance. We were also told we could come and wait if we wanted. We had been wanting to try Uchi for sometime and we were in Houston for a long weekend so we decided to wait for a table. We were... More

I came to Uchi expecting the greatest and most creative japanese food I've ever had. I did not get that. I've been to a few places around the world which have given me a better japanese food experience. We ordered about 10-12 different dishes, 1 of them was great, some fried pork. The rest were good, but not great. The... More

I love a good sushi restaurant. There are many great standard sushi restaurants in Houston. We have a wonderful selection of all types of Asian food. However, if you are looking for something out of the ordinary or totally unique in the world of Sushi, then Uchi is for you. Chef Tyson Cole and his staff goes over the top... More

I was really looking forward to celebrating my husband’s Birthday at Uchi. The overall experience was TERRIBLE. The hostess and the waiter acknowledged that there is a birthday celebration, however the quality of service was simply shocking. Our waiter Patrick was not attentive. Drinks took 30 min to arrive, water was never refilled, after over an hour and twenty minutes... More

The food exceeded reputation and expectations. We set the bar high, asked the waiter to just bring whatever the chef was making and went on to enjoy a great evening. The food is sublime. So good it almost makes you mad. Always town between having the chef's tasting menu or simply enjoying the Sushi. Either is an excellent option.

My wife and I went to Uchi to try "the best restaurant in Houston" and we're happy to report that it lived up to its press. We sat at the sushi bar and had the omikase (chef's choice). Everything was both tasty and unique. Would definitely go back again! Although, make sure to make a reservation... as the word is... More

Second time at Uchi and equally as amazing as the first. Food is beyond incredible. Walu walu and the Brussel sprouts are my personal favorites. Difficult to get a reservation but we arrived this evening at 5:45pm and were seated as a table of 4 by 6:20. Drinks and 'bites' from the kitchen keep you going in the meantime. Happy... More

Uchi was downright amazing. I was with friends who live in Houston. We asked for a recommendation and our waiter went through our tastes, and food preferences leading us to order the chef's tasting menu. We alternated between sushi and meat dishes. The sushi was fresh, and fragrant, fatty cuts of fish were accompanied by sweet or savory garnish. The... More
