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.

From my point of view and personal taste, I would say this is the best sushi place that I've ever been in Houston area so far. A little bit pricey and fair portions comparing with other sushi places, but perhaps it worth the extra because of excellent quality. I will come back over and over again. Loved it!!

I would easily vote this restaurant as one of the best Japanese restaurants in Houston. The food was excellent. Service was good. Don't miss on UNI, kobe cubes and truffle tuna.
