Probably our favorite sushi place to eat in Lansing - we love the Ukai roll and Spicy Crab Crunch Roll. This restaurant is not impressive looking - it has no windows and lots of wood that is screaming for attention. Compared to their West side location, this one needs some updates. Usually we just order to go from this location... More

Ukraine is a typical Japanese Steak House but that doesn't interfere with the fun! Their chefs are engaging and very talented. Sit around a grill with friends, family, or strangers and enjoy a fun experience and pleasant dining.

Went to Ukai for a birthday and had a great experience. Watching the food being prepared in front of you is great along with the interaction with the staff.

A friend from England who was visiting took my wife and myself to dinner at Ukai. We had not been here for several years. We had a wonderful time there and the food was very good. One had shrimp and two of us had the seafood dinner (Lobster, scallops and shrimp). The chief was fun and did a very nice... More

Nice to place to take your family out or to enjoy with just the two of you. Very friendly staff, clean, plenty of parking and conveniently located off of campus. Great food, not quite authentic but still very good to eat. Will go here again when in town

Went at 5pm on a Saturday for a birthday celebration. Reservations are definitely required as we wanted a later reservation but it was entirely booked after that time and we had called the day before. They have a dish that has beef, shrimp and chicken that was popular at the table. The miso soup was blah. The meals come with... More

The food is always very good. The chiefs cook it right at your table with a lot of very entertaining moves. The steak, chicken and shrimp are always good, sushi too.
