The tastings are such a great idea. You can sample some of the dishes and go from there. Service is amazing. Such so fresh and excellent. We go whenever we come to Austin and Houston.

Great experience. I would highly recommend coming in during happy hour which is 5-6:30 every day. They offer many food options which allows you to try smaller portions of some of their specialties at a reduced price. Everything we ordered, which was basically everything on the happy hour menu, is phenomenal. Can't wait to get back to Austin to try Uniko

The food here is amazing. The best, freshest, most interesting sushi that I have ever had. The only negative is that it's not exactly undiscovered; there's always a wait for a table, but it's worth it.

We are frequent visitors to Austin and like it so much that ,having decided to live here part time,we bought a home within walking distance of Uchi.We love Sushi and have eaten it all over the world,including Tokyo.Last night's dinner was the clincher that this hands down the best.The fish is of great quality and super fresh,there is minimal interference with the ingredients And any "additions"are always subtle and very well balanced in terms of flavor.The place is always busy but service is excellent given that the staff are passionate about the food and well briefed on the menu.Good wine/saki list and beer.Can be expensive but great value.

We arrived just as they opened on a recent Tuesday evening. Despite this early arrival time we still had a short wait. During the wait we were offered samples which were quite tasty but small. Most places I have had sushi the rolls are about the same circumference as a quarter if not larger. These rolls were closer in size to nickels. This was the case with the main dishes as well.

Each dish was excellent if not small. Highlights were the tempura fried shrimp, hot rock beef, crunchy tuna roll and tempura fried veggies.

Our waiter Chris was excellent and we would ask for him again on our return. After the first round of apps, where his suggestions were spot on, we trusted him to make a few selections for us. Bravo Chris.

The total for the four of us with 2 bottles of wine and tax and tip came to just under $300. My only issue was we were hungry again before bed.
