Description: We are proud to announce...

Located in central Austin, this second location of Cole's highly-praised Uchi presents the same excellence and energetic atmosphere of the original with some noteworthy additions. Uchiko features a new menu with Uchi's same style of innovative and fresh cuisine, a main dining room that accepts reservations throughout the evening and an eat-in bar/café area.

We went to Uchiko based on some recommendations. When we got seated and read the menu, I was sure we had made a mistake. Our group of 4 eats out regularly, but we had trouble identifying what many of the items were on the menu.

The server was superb at helping us navigate. We sampled many items. We loved the brussel sprouts and the ham and eggs sushi. We all loved all of our selections...the only exception was dessert. It was a special dessert they had done for Valentines day, but it was not great.

Glad we went. It is worth a try, and trust your server, they know their menu.

I love Uchiko. The ingredients are really fresh and the combos of flavors are quite unique. You must try the brussels sprouts and the chicken. Soooo good!

What an amazing Japanese restaurant! Try the grilled edamamae beans, they are surreal. The hot rock wagyu beef is also unbelievable. Wash it all down with a bottle of wakatake onikoroshi sake. You are in for a treat!

While my visit was only for happy hour at the bar, it was still fantastic. I had the koviche which was a fresh diver scallop with kalamata and black lime - sweet and succulent! The brussel sprouts were cooked crisp with lemon chili sauce and were fantastic as well. My drink was a Ryoshuu which contained sparkling wine, elderflower, bitters and blueberry - crisp, bubbly, not too sweet - divine! The whole experience, while a little expensive, was a nice treat for a special occasion!!

Great variety on the menu. Fresh taste. Loved the Brussels sprouts and golden beets. Shag roll was awesome. They should however add a little dictionary for some of the more obscure items included though ;)
