awesome

I go here once a month... it is the best restaurant in Houston. One dish out of hundreds from the many times I have been here was just OK and they immediately apologized and removed it from the bill without me even implying it was my desire. I would never hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

I usually don't like Asian restaurants, but Uchi was amazing. The way they presented the food to us was interesting. I don't remember what it was called, but it was amazing. It was a couple of meat that you cook yourself on top of a rock. I loved the restaurant. The staff was amazing and seemed that they wanted to... More

The food is tasty but not so much traditional Japanese, in a way too much spices to my taste. Definitely not for business meetings--way too noisy.

Anniversary dinner. First visit to Uchi. Decided against the tasting menu and instead ordered ala carte with the advice from the attentive waitstaff. Great decision! We were treated with dish after dish of artistic and delicious sushi fusions. Wow! Every dish was a hit. A bit pricey, but worth every penny. Book ahead. This rates a "don't miss...".

The food here is the best! They explained the menu to us in great, loving detail, and they exceeded expectations in food quality, service, and even brought me a hot rock to sear my beef! Unbelievable!

Go to Uchi, then ask them to just feed you. You will not be disappointed. The quality and creativity of the sushi here cannot be matched. I wish I lived closer to go more often!

The food is innovative and I always just let them bring me what is new and the best that day. I am never disappointed. Its pricey, but most great things are. Enjoy and be prepared for a long wait.
