Most people love Uchi and swear by it, but I must be one of those weirdos who doesn't like it. I looove anything sushi and I love to try new sushi places, but this place didn't give me the satisfaction I expected compared to the amount of money I dropped. First of all, the place is a no frills restaurant with furniture that I would expect at a fast food joint. Maybe it's the Austin and hippy vibe, which I generally like, but it didn't seem homey at all and seemed bland. The ham and egg is good and so are some of their other happy hour dishes, but nothing amazing. I have also tried their jar jar duck to find it to taste too smokey too chewy meat. Their fresh fish that is flown in is nice, but nothing is exceptional. Maybe I expected too much, but I would rather go somewhere that's more flavorful, filling, and has more bang for the buck!

Great atmosphere and inspired dishes! Loved the fried brussels sprouts surprisingly well. Ask the sushi chefs for recommendations. We loved everything he suggested. The Fried Milk dessert is something that everyone talks about, but I feel it's a little hyped up.

I heard great things about Uchi, but unfortunately I was left disappointed. I'm seeing in these reviews that people are particularly disappointed with the chef's sampler and I'm not an exception. There is nothing special about the food here. The flavors do not stand out and while they clearly use high quality ingredients, recipes are built in such a convoluted manner that you end up having delicate flavors masked by stronger foods. I can't speak for all of the food here but definitely avoid the overpriced signature tastings.

All of the fusion dishes were excellent! One of my favorites was "Machi Cure", which is their take on finger food. The smoked yellowtail blended perfectly with the asian pear, all on top of a yuca chip. Food is incredible and service is great, overall an experiece like no other in Houston.

Scott is an awesome tour guide! He knows everything about pizza and knows everything about places that serve pizza! We went for a work event and had a great time! Such a good opportunity to get to try different places in different neighborhoods. All the restaurants knew we were coming and had tables ready with pizza soon to follow. The little booklets you get to take notes in are so cute! Thanks Scott!

Amazing! Sushi in Houston or anywhere else doesn't get much better than this. Great atmosphere, knowledgeable staff and a great variety of vegan options.

If you don't find any interesting on the carts outside of Strand that ranges from $1-5, you can definitely find more of them downstairs! However majority of the ones downstairs are advance reading copies. Workers are always filling the carts outside with more books. Some hardcover books might be missing their cover and summary, which can be a real bummer because I like to read the summary and see if it interested me but you can always use the internet to find out the summary.

Uchi is incredible, and it is definitely worth making a reservation far in advance. The few times that I have been there, I have given up on the menu and just told the server what I typically like for sushi. Suddenly, delicious plates start arriving on the table and each is more appealing than the last. You absolutely cannot miss out on the Peanut Butter Semifreddo, which is, without a doubt, my favorite dessert in all of Houston.

Uchi hasn't shared anything with you.
