Sushi
Uchiko is the sister restaurant to Tyson Cole’s original Uchi. It matches that restaurant’s dedication to food, wine, and service, but it has a Japanese farmhouse aesthetic with crafted materials and warm finishes to round out a completely updated setting. The chef team at Uchiko has created a brand new selection of composed dishes and sushi, taken from ideas and plates created at Uchi. Uchiko is Uchi rede­fined. Reservations are encouraged and can be booked online up to 1 month in advance for parties of up to 12 guests. Walk-in bar seating is available and is subject to wait times. Patio seating is weather permitting and may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. We look forward to serving you, Kanpai!

    One of the most fabulous dining experiences I’ve ever had! Every single dish was phenomenal, especially with the happy hour pricing. Our server Tim was helpful and attentive and we couldn’t have asked for a better dinner.

    Service was horrible. Food took so lo my to come out and very infrequent contact with the waiter. Food itself was good, but overpriced. Would not return due to the poor service and long wait times to get food.

    I love Uchiko, and will always come back (personally prefer it to Uchi), but this past time, I noticed how incredibly loud it was. The tables were quite packed next to each other. I just have a hard time focusing on what the other person is saying when my ears are vibrating because the noise is too loud. Other than that, always great food and service!

    We had a great time and enjoyed the new Happy Hour menu, but again, the Jasmin dessert was still on the menu without a different option. Oh well, we will live. Our sushi server was as friendly as ever and that makes it even more interesting to sit at the sushi bar.

    $600 dinner with no booze… lackluster & not a lot of bang for your buck. I think I may be taking a break from Uchiko.

    My husband and I took our nanny out to celebrate six months with our family. We had such a wonderful dinner! Our server was Tammy and she was absolutely fabulous. We ordered so much food and it was all amazing. My husband and our nanny enjoyed one the prefix menu options. I’m pregnant so I was not able to partake in the courses since most are raw, but Tammy was very thoughtful in bringing an extra serving of one the the courses that was fully cooked so that I could join. Excellent service, inventive and delicious food, and an unforgettable experience.

    Lackluster. After hearing so much sat at sushi bar. Ordered chefs course with some items we picked. Dishes came out of sequence and 2-3 at a time. Had to ask for empty plates to be cleaned repeatedly. Drink service came once and not again. Overall food served was C+. Soto and neighborhood sushi both better at the core than this place.

    Overall it was good. But the portions are getting really small. It is becoming impossible to feel full even after spending a lot of money. Over the years the portions have become minuscule. You have to eat two pieces of sushi at the same time to even taste it.

    I’m born and raised in Austin and I’ll never forget when Uchi opened. Back then the servers were warm, helpful and always made me feel comfortable and special. Now, the servers at Uchi and Uchiko are cold and irritable. I love the food but the service always ruins the experience. I think this is the last time I’ll ever come back. It was me and my wife’s birthday celebration and the server didn’t even acknowledge it or make us feel special or welcome at all. Really sad but if you’re looking for good sushi there are so many new great restaurants in Austin with phenomenal sushi! It will save you the rude service!

    I have been eating sushi for nearly 50 years and had it all over the world, including Japan. My comparisons here are only vs. U.S. sushi bars. Most sushi bars in the U.S. are run by Koreans or Chinese or Americans. In Japan, sushi chefs must train for years, not so here. Of course, the Japanese have daily access to freshly caught fish, yet another big advantage. Uchiko has the most unique menu of Japanese style sushi I have experienced here. Many U.S. sushi bars, like Sushi Zushi, have a wide variety of "Americanized" sushi, especially rolls, which include things like cream cheese or jalapeños or brisket. We experimented with a wide variety of sushi, sashimi and rolls, all uniquely delicious. We did not use soy with wasabi, at their chefs request. They either provide a unique sauce or it is eaten as is. We had tuna, salmon, anchovy, sea bream, mackerel and several rolls. The BEST roll was "shag". Also, we rarely have dessert at sushi bars but the banana cake with ice cream and coffee sauce was outstanding. The only issues? The prices are absurd, i.e. not unusual to see $14-18 PER PIECE of nigiri sushi. Better come during happy hour, 4-6:30. While the menu is more limited, its good enough.

    My favorite restaurant was a tiny bit sub expectations on the sushi and shashmi but the carrot dish was amazing. Not sure why the other lacked the traditional interesting flavors and creativity 🤔. Hopefully just an off night.

    Fantastic server and food never disappoints. However as a vegetarian I was DEVASTATED to find out that the Milk and Cereal was not vegetarian and NO ONE told us when we ordered at our prior visits. I am grateful to our server this time for telling us. And to the prior servers who didn’t tell me when I was clear about being a vegetarian, you got some bad karma you’re going to have to deal with. Good luck

    I love Uchikos food and knowledgeable staff! The vibe is more casual than Uchi, always louder and busy depending on where you sit. The service was okay, but this is to be expected with a new server & packed house. Non the less, always well taken care of + clean.

    Service was simply terrible. It was my wife’s birthday as our server acknowledged when we sat down, “we’ll take care of you.” Then it all proceeded to go down hill from there. We only received half our order and had to wait for nearly 30min before the rest. The final dish took so long that we just ended up canceling it. When asked a passing server for some soy sauce, she bristled at the request and never came back. Finally ordered dessert and it showed up without a candle. Our server didn’t apologize but showed her regret by taking $25 off our bill. So much for “we’ll take care of you.” It was supposed to be a special experience for my wife on her birthday and ended up the opposite. Never eating here again!
