After reading such wonderful reviews on tripadvisor, we were thrilled to visit Uchi, Houston at their happy hours. We ordered a number of dishes including makimono, spicy crunchy tuna roll, uchiviche, kakiage, yaki imo, brussel sprouts, snow crabs, bacon otoshi. The dishes were all beautifully presented, and the portions were small (mouthful at most). We were surprised that we found most of the dishes to be quite salty, and rather greasy. We were not sure if we had ordered the wrong dishes- many dishes were deep-fried, or made out of very fatty cuts of meat (such as pork belly or bacon). And most dishes sat in flavorful but heavily salted sauces- including the yaki imo, brussel sprouts and snow crabs. Sadly, we have to report this is not one of my Houston favorites. We were glad we tried this restaurant, but will unlikely return.
