This is some of the best sushi I've ever had. Uchi rivals Nobu. The flavor pairings. The drink pairings. All perfect. Unique, savory, fresh, and somewhat surprising. Yes. The answer to Uchi is always yes! The staff was superb too! Sit anywhere, a table, the sushi bar, or even the wine bar. All are worth it!

Every dish is perfectly balanced in taste and beautifully presented. The staff is very accomodating and patient with their guests. We tried almost all of their Happy Hour specials and even ordered some of them a second time before the meal was concluded. Visiting or living in Houston and not experiencing Uchi is a missed opportunity!

This is a very hot restaurant in the former home of a Tex Mex classic, Felix. So the cuisine couldn't be more different if the walls could talk. Uchi's food is fabulous and I would recommend whatever specials they have rather than ordering only the things you've had in other places.

The hot rock is fun so be sure to order that (you cook your own appetizer on a sizzling hot black rock delivered to your table).

You must reserve way in advance; this place is very very popular. But it's worth it.

I have been wanting to go to Uchi for years, but never seemed to make it. Everyone always raves about it, so I guess I was expecting off the charts. Now don't get me wrong, it was good, but it was not the best sushi I have ever eaten, but it was among the top. The venue is small, so reservations are a must.

This is a whole new take on sushi.
Every thing we had was a whole new experience from any other sushi you will have known
