I visited this restaurant for a special occasion. I'm not big on raw sushi, but I tried the tuna roll and another I ant recall. The Brussel sprouts were amazing! I know that sounds odd, but they were. The tempura is also great! I tried several specialty drinks, which were good, but I settled on wine most of the evening.... More

We only had one night in Houston, visiting a friend and he took us to Uchi. He didn't realise I don't like sea food so was a bit concerned but we ordered lots of meat and veggie dishes which were absolutely incredible! All the meat melted in your mouth and tasted so good! My fiance insisted I tried the fish... More

We went in a group of 4 (all vegetarians) and we tried almost every vegetarian item on the menu. I cannot clearly which one was better than the previous one...that wouldn't be fair since they all were so superb! every item was so different and presented very well, and the taste palate was commendable! hands down best place!

I've been here multiple times and the one thing I can say is consistently amazing. Which is really hard to achieve. I've never had a bad meal at this place and each time was a completely different menu.

This place is too pricey for me for dinner, but their happy hour is great. I went with a good friend and we just told the waiter to keep the food coming (very small plates) until we were full. He somehow timed it perfectly, even though we were getting plates from at least 5 different waiters. It was excellent.

This is definitely a must go if you're in Houston. Don't expect your standard Japanese sushi rolls though. This place is modern and serves the best seafood very cleanly. Special tip: go during happy hour to try smaller dishes for more variety!

I have been to Uchi many times and this time it was as awesome as usual. Although the fried milk dessert shrunk considerably in size (really???), the food is still one of the best you can get in Houston if you are not afraid of raw seafood. Service is impeccable and sitting at the bar being able to order directly... More

This is an extraordinary restaurant by all means - from the moment you get in to the moment you leave. We were lucky enough to sit at the bar and see directly how our food was prepared. The sake drink with honey, egg whites and lemon reminded me of a Pisco sour, just lighter. The hotate and salmon sushi, as... More

I have visited many sushi fine restaurants and in my opinion this places goes to my top five list. You can try different things with a unique variety of flavors. Patrick was in charge of my food preparation and made my dinner special. Staff are really helpful and kind. Fully recommendable!!!

A hip upbeat social atmosphere with great sushi. We told the waiter to have the chef choose and prepare everything that he would think would be a great meal and it was! I honestly couldn't remember anything we had but it was all great! Like I said "A culinary experience. Pricey but worth it
