“Unusual dishes, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

I have to admit it wasn't quite what I expected but it's a great place to try different dishes. The sashimi was really fresh, the sushi was unusual and tasty, and the prices were reasonable. Love the location and atmosphere ... kind of just outside the heart of Roppongi, so it's accessible yet in a quiet neighbourhood.

“A Neighbourhood Gem!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Recommended by a family relative who got introduced to this place by a local. Loved the vibe and atmosphere of this place, very energetic staffs. They have a photo album menu, (so no worries about what to order) they also have staffs who can speak moderate English. The food was AMAZINGLY GOOD, very unique choices of fresh sashimi, not those typical ones. Definitely worth visiting!! RSVP as this place gets fully packed pretty quickly.

“Fun & Tastey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Uoshin has a fun festive atmosphere and great place with to go with a group of friends. Thought the fish here was excellent and a great place to grab a drink after a long day. Service was good and friendly. Prices were okay relative to Tokyo. Would definitely come back.

“If you want the best sushi in Tokyo... GO HERE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I went here with my Japanese Homestay, when I went to Tokyo last year. This is THE BEST Sushi place hands down! I have been to Sushi Mizutani and Saito and they don't even come near the quality of Uoshin's Fish. The reason why there menu is handwritten is because of the fact that they order their fish daily from Tsukiji Market, which is the biggest fish market in the world. (In Tokyo Bay). Although it is pricey, it is worth every yen! Highly recommended!

“Wow, the fish! Wow, the fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This place looks too funky to be good, but not true! The fish is fantastic, fresh and perfectly served - raw or cooked. The bohemian wait-staff seem to really enjoy their jobs and want to ensure that their customers enjoy their experience. We lucked out and got seated right away. This is a place for everyone: families with kids, business dudes, ladies-night-out types, date night, boisterous friends. The food is terrific, the atmosphere equal to it. Really reasonably priced as well. Go!
