I visited Uptown Sushi three times during my 5 days in Houston. I can't recommend it enough! Everything on the menu is delish and make sure you try the green tea mochi ice cream for dessert. I can't wait for my next trip to Houston.

I have had great food at this restaurant for many years. However, take out last Saturday night was terrible. We had two rolls that were not fresh and not edible. Called for the manager twice to for voice my displeasure and he never called back. That is not acceptable. Not going back to Uptown Sushi ever again and suggest you... More

The real deal. Not a pretender or duplication. Great signature cocktails, the miso soup rocks. Try the Hamachi collar and unique sushi combinations. The service is friendly and efficient. Great people watching, if you know what I mean!

The sushi, service, and the atmosphere at this place is above par. We were in town for business and someone told us this was the place. And it was. If you are trying to decide this is the one.

The sushi was very fresh. I had the spiro the sauce was very spicy, which I like. I had the salad with ginger dressing, it's a spring salad not just iceberg. It's a good size salad. I also had a side of edamame. I ordered the edamame first and it came out last. The service was disappointing.

I really enjoyed the experience at Uptown Sushi. Great ambiance of fancy but not snooty. Very pleasant staff. They were warm, welcoming, and patient. They food was delicious with plenty of choices. I recommend Uptown Sushi, but be careful sliding into a booth. Snagging the table cloth and spilling everything on the table is a possibility or actually a reality...

I've become a regular at Uptown Sushi whenever I'm in Houston, and it never disappoints. The service is decent, and the decor is a bit stylized for my country boy taste, but the food is incredible. The conventional sushi is perfect, but the Teryaki beef Maki are out of this world. The booths are a bit oddly shaped ... ask... More

Uptown was highly recommended by a colleague so we decided to try it. One of the men in my party asked for a simple small assortment of sashimi because he really did not know sushi - I nearly choked when the bill came and I saw the waitress or sushi chef selected blue fin tuna for him without asking.
