“Nice venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is a nice little place for good sushi and strong cocktails. Like most places in Dublin they are both expensive however. The staff are very friendly and the tables by the window are perfect on a nice night. There is also a karaoke venue downstairs which we did not partake in!

“All round good venue but could do better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I was in Ukiyo with 5 friends on a Saturday evening. It was my second time in Ukiyo for food..The service was excellent; friendly helpful staff. They did rush us a little but I understand they needed tth table for the next seating. The food was good but not great, everything just seemed to lack flavour and my friends felt the same The menu is a little staid. We were offered a free half an hour in their Karaoke booths for the inconvenience of leaving early. We really appreciated this and it was great fun! All in all a good restaurant with good service.

“1 of the best spots in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I eat here on a regular basis and the food is always really good, fresh and tasty. The bento box deal for €10 is incredible value and I would recommend this place to anyone who is a fan of really good Japanese food. The menu is excellent and I must say that the staff always give excellent wine recommendations. The guys in there are really friendly and lots of fun and I've never had a bad experience in the place.

It's a really fun place to go on at the weekends as it turns into a bar once the diners have left and the music is second to none, I don't know who they have djing but this is a little gem of a place.

If you haven't eaten there yet, go and try it, you won't be disappointed!

“Decent value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Ukiyo provides decent value for the bento lunch options. Its a good way to sample some Japanese food at a reasonable price. However the quality of presentation and content matches the cost.
