Uchi gets it right. The food is transcendent, the acoustics are relaxing, the service is warm yet professional. My only complaint is that the six course tasting menu has been the exact same dishes three times I've ordered it. I know better now to specify something different. Those six tastings are incredible though, so even that complaint is a mild one.

More traditional style sushi. Dont expect California rolls and cream cheese here. The servers are all very attentive and do a great job of explaining the dishes to you. Each dish comes with their own sauce depending on what the chef feels will complement the dish the best. Everything we got was delicious. Will definitely be back to this restaurant my next trip to Houston

Upscale modern take on Japanese food. Sushi is outstanding and the cool tastings are extremely creative. Service is top notch and they are happy to walk you through any questions. Also have a full vegetarian menu. Sake Social (their happy hour) is an outstanding deal but get there early as a line starts to form!

The bar portion of the restaurant was surprisingly lively when I was there which makes me think this is a cool place to come get drinks and eat japanese food. The dinner area and the sushi itself was the best part though. I ordered the omakase and the chef really outdid themselves with a great selection of rare tuna and salmon from all over the world.

A few friends and I , stopped in for a little break away red meat. We went full throttle sampling everything and ordered a few things to share. The Spicy crunchy tuna was gone in about 10 sec, so we moved on to the Hama Chili, Fresh Atlantic salmon with sake, Anago Sea Eel with orange and ginger. After a little sake break, we tried the Shime Saba. Well presented superb dishes which come at a price. The staff very professional and helpful. Nice crowd.

The front hostesses were a bit rude to us because we changed our reservation from seven to eight people. We had to wait for another 15-20 minutes for them to prepare that for us. My question was... If a table fits seven, shouldn't it fit eight people as well? 🤔 Anyways... Onto everything else. The food to price ratio to taste was sub par to me. Their Tsukiji menu that changes daily is worth looking at, however, prices are very steep for the quality of fish. I say that because I just got back from a two month stay in Asia, while spending seven full days eating sashimi in Tokyo, Japan. Out of all the things that I was able to try, what stood out to me were the brussel sprouts that had a nice savory and sweet seasoning, the foie gras because it was really rich, creamy and melted in my mouth, and finally the hokkaido uni. We had a table of seven, and spent close to $900 without tip or alcohol.

Get a reservation because the place is almost always packed. The service has always been great, and we've had several delicious bites here. Everything we've had from the cold-tastings has been delicious, and I'm a bit concerned that they may lace their Brussels Sprouts with opiates because I've never has green vegetables that taste that good. Seriously though, those sprouts are incredible. Also, get the Fried Milk dessert, you will want to order another.
