Second time for dinner at the Uni Sake House....Friday evening and the place was full. Had excellent Hamachi (Yellowtail) sashimi - some of the best quality I have ever had, I have lived in Japan love sashimi. The "rolls" are very creative. We had two, the best was the "crunchy lizard" a shrimp tempura based roll with a barbeque eel... More

Hi Albert! Thanks so much for your business. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your food experience with us. I'm sorry to hear about the noise level and ambiance during your visit. Unfortunately, weekend days tend to be a little busier and a tad louder. Hope this was not enough to deter you from future visits! Best, June. More

Hi TaqWin644! Thank you for such a great review. I'm glad that we were able to get you seated promptly and that the late night service was awesome as well. I'm curious, which roll was your favorite?

They're not kidding when they say they're a sake house - incredible selection and with tasting notes to help you make a decision. Vast selection of sushi including a daily fresh menu, lots of innovative specialty rolls, and some non seafood options. You won't be bored with this menu. This is a large restaurant, much larger than it looks from... More
