“Delicious food and professional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Dinner at Uchiko is a delightful experience. Everything we ordered was delicious. We kept a menu and ordered as we dined. Service was professional as well as warm and friendly. From the first moment you walk in you feel welcomed. I really think the entire staff enjoys being here and it shows in their demeanor and service.
Casual but special. Great to have such an outstanding restaurant in Austin!
Can't wait to try their food at Hole in the Wall on Guadalupe by the university.

“Excellent food in Austin”

My husband and I went here for his birthday dinner and it was excellent. The staff was warm and knowledgable. The dessert was some of the best we have ever tasted. Great ambiance.

Five of us shared a great array of pretty exotic and interesting dishes. All well prepared and served by experienced and knowledgeable wait staff. Always a pleasure to return to Uchiko's.

“Good but no Uchi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We eat at Uchi all the time but live right near Uchiko. I want to love this place, I really do, but if you'r used to going to Uchi I just don't think the quality is the same. Still, if you'd like to try it out I definitely advise going for their happy hour!
