The food here is amazing. Delicious and unique. The portions and price are what's stopping me from giving them 5 stars. I have never left a sushi place so hungry. That being said the service is good and food is fresh. Uchi is an restaurant to experience, but there are definitely better values in Austin for equally good food.

Beautiful, super-fresh, sushi created as works of art rather than the usual rolls or sashimi. We had the tasting menu and every course was a delight. Each course was a single bowl to be shared by two, artfully done and oh so tasty. For food this place gets top marks. Unfortunately it is also very, very loud. On our visit... More

This was my first time in Uchi but I went with my daughter, who knew what to order, etc. I had some machi cure, yellow tail and onions, crunchy salmon, the seasonal fish (it was bass), brussel sprouts, roasted beets and a small batch (6) of yasai maki (vegetarian rolls). Also had some white wine.... Overall, everything was excellent and... More

My wife loves sushi and gets it when possible. Having lived most of my 68 years in New York and for the last 6 months in Chapel Hill, NC, we didn't think Austin could be that great. I always start explaining all my allergies to the waiter. Our waiter, Felipe, was remarkable and will do very well in life. He... More

We are sushi/sashimi regulars at both the finer and modest restaurants in New York City. The restaurant was crowded and loud on a Monday night. The menu is very different from what we are used to. You had grouping choices which are like small appetizing portions instead of ordering a mixed combo or a la carte. If you have a... More

And we live in the Bay Area and travel a lot! Amazing place: great atmosphere, delicious sushi. The escolar in particular was amazing, but all sashimi, making and Nigiri was excellent. We'd absolutely dine here again.

My wife and I came here a few weeks ago for an early birthday dinner while we were on vacation in Austin, and the food was incredible. We both splurged and got the chef's 10 course Omakase. Each dish was beautifully presented and the food was unbelievably good. I've attached some photos from our meal below. We definitely recommend this... More

We went to Uchi because a friend recommended it. It was my favorite dinner our entire trip. The food was delicious, service was great. The back area where we waited and had cocktails outside was lovely. The sushi was fresh and wonderful. Definitely have a nabe, you will not be disappointed. Still dreaming of the one we had.

Visiting my son in Austin and he took us here. Make sure to make reservation as this place is very popular. We ordered, between 4 people, about 15 small plates to share. Ranging from crunchy salmon rolls, different sashimis ,tempura, Mussels, Negihama, akami te, Shag roll, Walu Walu...etc. This is the BEST Japanese restaurant I have ever eaten ! All... More
