“Wow! One of the most amazing meals we have ever eaten.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

We had heard so much about this restaurant. One of its chef's won Top Chef this year and it was recommended by so many foodie friends. The most memorable dishes were a potk belly that had been sous vided then flash fried. A sticky rice hot pot rocked and the finisher, a brown butter sorbet served along side a lilting flan blew us away.

Pricey and worth every penny!

“Favourite Austin sushi restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

If you have a hankering for sushi in Austin, look no further than Uchi - or brother/sister restaurant Uchiko. The original is Uchi on South Lamar but Uchiko is also excellent and conveniently located near Central Market in the center of Austin. Delicious and popular - you need to book in advance.

“Delicious Sushi, Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Recently dined here for a friend's birthday and it was such an experience! We were greeted promptly and seated within minutes of arrival, we had appetizers and wine, and soup and many different sushi rolls and it was all just exquisite. I would definitely go back!

“too weird. waste of time.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

we went here expecting some sushi and basic Japanese food. the menu was very different. i like to try new things, and i did here, i just was not impressed with the food. cool atmosphere and outside bar area. waited about 2 hours. we were told an hour but it turned into 2. plates are small and are good for sharing. spent a lot of money and time here and we left hungry. would have rather gotten some Texas BBQ instead.
