“The best meal of my life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

There is not much too say about this restaurant due to it is now my favourite restaurant of all time. The food is the best food I have ever eaten. Service was fantastic and the atmosphere in incredible. I have always hated Brussel sprouts but they cover it in some source which made even kids love it, It was my favourite part of the meal. Incredible food with amazing soda and cocktails.

“Wow! One of the most amazing meals we have ever eaten.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We had heard so much about this restaurant. One of its chef's won Top Chef this year and it was recommended by so many foodie friends. The most memorable dishes were a potk belly that had been sous vided then flash fried. A sticky rice hot pot rocked and the finisher, a brown butter sorbet served along side a lilting flan blew us away.

Pricey and worth every penny!

“Favourite Austin sushi restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

If you have a hankering for sushi in Austin, look no further than Uchi - or brother/sister restaurant Uchiko. The original is Uchi on South Lamar but Uchiko is also excellent and conveniently located near Central Market in the center of Austin. Delicious and popular - you need to book in advance.

“Delicious Sushi, Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Recently dined here for a friend's birthday and it was such an experience! We were greeted promptly and seated within minutes of arrival, we had appetizers and wine, and soup and many different sushi rolls and it was all just exquisite. I would definitely go back!
