Reviewed October 19, 2012

I didn't expect to eat great Japanese food in TX and I was taken by surprise. The chef is truly a top chef, very creative and delicious. Jar jar duck is a must

“As Good as it gets!!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

I ate at Uchiko with my wife and friends while visiting Austin. As a New Yorker, I have access to the best Sushi/Fusion in the United States.

Uchiko is as good and as inventive as any Sushi/Fusion restaurant I've ever tried. It's ranks with New York's finest.

The food is incredible....incredible...incredible. The service is relaxed but on target.

If you try it....you will love it!

“A very interesting experience!!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I went with a group. We ordered a number of dishes. Some we really loved and some not so much. The menu is a bit confusing but very unique. The flavor combinations were surprising but usually fantastic. I have not been to a restaurant like Uchiko in the past.
