Had to try it

Had to try this place after walking past. The website was a pain showing no tables, but on just turning up to try, there was plenty of room. So don't be out off. Sushi, sashimi and beef cooked on hot stone at the table ... Wow a lovely meal . Fantastic service from the friendly staff. Will... read more

The sushi was average, wasn't anything that made me say I have to come back. Average sushi prices I would say. Service was good - our guy was David and he did a great job. Not a large menu or anything super creative. I wish I had more to say but it's honestly just average sushi.

Food and service were both good. However, the men's bathroom was in horrifically bad shape. Part of it was out of order and the odor was significant enough to be sickening. Server tried to play if off as a landlord issue, but it really seemed more like a busted urinal was just leaking sewage. It was enough for me not... More

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.

Did not want to have to go far, and fancied sushi so here we went. Excellent start with lychee martini cocktails. On to the food, we did a kind of tapas style japanese selection through the evening and all of it was very good. We tried the salmon and tuna sashimi, perfect, a selection of maki rolls, including crawfish which... More

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...
