You probably would want to use a car or a pedicab to get to Uchi, but the trip is well worth it. Fusion cuisine (merging the best tastes and ingredients of more than one culture in creative and tasty ways) at its finest. This restaurant deservedly shows up in all the best guides to great food.

The best Japanese fusion restaurant you'll ever go to! Chef Tyson Cole really knows what he's doing! Once you try his food, you'll understand why his protege, Paul Qui, won his season of Top Chef. The food here is so elegant with flavor combinations you would have never thought of. Some of my favorites there were their foie gras nigiri and strawberry foie gras dessert. The place can be a little pricey though, but luckily they have happy hour! And you don't have to sit at the bar to get the happy hour deals! This will be my first stop next time I come back to Austin!

I suppose it's unusual to choose sushi for dinner when you're coming from California to Texas. But I have no regrets! Uchi serves great sushi. The standout dish to me was the scallops. Best scallops I've ever had! Besides that, the sushi was very fresh and worthy of being in the fine sushi category of restaurants in my book. The only thing that was slightly weird to me is the serving of Miso soup in the beginning. I normally expect that with a bento box order :D Anyway, one of the cool appetizers to order is the Hot Rock which is, well, a hot rock upon which you sear your wagyu beef. whoa! Ultimately, I wouldn't place Uchi over awesome BBQ if you limited dining time in Austin, but I would recommend Uchi if you're craving sushi for a change.Recommended for:

Fresh and beautiful pieces of fish, as to be expected. The presentation is definitely photo-worthy though you will pay for it. This is a very "in" spot so I tend to stay away and opt for something less crowded.

Honestly, there is nothing we've ever tasted here that was not divine. It's all incredibly creative, delicious, mostly local. I've said "melt in your mouth" a couple times. You need a reservation. It will be very expensive. The service is excellent and the place is beautiful. My only complaint is that I kinda feel like I want a burger afterwards. :)

It might have been one of the best sushi I've had in a long time. For the price point, I wish I could live there. Some hilites:
I'll describe the highlights:
- shime saba (mackerel)
- hamachi (yellowtail)
- ankimo (monkfish liver)
- salmon belly*

Very good place in Austin. Apparently rated as one of the top sushi joints in the US according to Zagat. The food is very fresh and they do a good job of creating interesting delights in your mouth. The menu changes daily and the chefs use an interesting combination of traditionally non-japanese food items with fresh fish (ex. Goat cheese and Tuna...sounds weird...but tasted GREAT; just the right amount of goat cheese with a nice sauce). Walu Walu is good and the rock star is a must get. Overall, probably one of the best restaurants in Austin....although not BBQ or Southwest cuisine. This place is bank though.
