Uchi is the best...hands down! It is more expensive than others, but you won't be sorry. It's a wonderful contemporary design and always an active crowd. It's a bit noisy.

The food was good until we saw a large cockroach walking on the wall. The server grabbed it with a napkin and we left the other way. Don't expect to end your dinner that way. Don't want to imagine the look of their kitchen.

I am still learning to like sushi but my husband likes it so I am learning. Uchi has made it so easy each time we go to help me try new things with server recommendations and great food. So good - ready to go back.

This was an exceptional experience for someone who isn't a fan of sushi. The blending of complementary flavors in all of the dishes would be unbelievable if not for the wall of visible spices behind the open kitchen. The food was out of this world good but the atmosphere was a bit busy and loud.The service staff was very nice,... More

Takes days to get a reservation but it's worth the wait. Crowded & noisy but you know you're at the "in" place. Best sushi in Houston.

The food is good and happy hour good value.... We visited the restaurant again... After deciding we wouldn't go back due to their attitude at the door... To give some context we regularly dine in fine dining restaurants around the world and more often find the staff in those restaurants more than accommodating... At Uchi the people at the door...

I have been eating sushi since before it was cool (1976) to be exact and this place blew me away as both art and food science. Never have I seen and tasted such a presentation. I paid for as the best is never cheap. Definitely get there and forget the cost. Your taste buds will clearly notice the difference.

My sister who is a California foodie has transferred to a much smaller town so she was excited about coming home to Houston because she had been reading about the food scene in Houston. She asked me to pick the restaurant. My husband takes lots of clients to lots of restaurants but Uchi is unique. I think the trick is... More
