Serving up sushi and Japanese cuisine in South Austin, Uchi does have a larger price tag and you may encounter a wait -- but there's good reason for that in the deliciously fresh ingredients and bold flavors that you'll find inside. Grab a seat and order away, or put your trust in your servers and chefs and let them pick for you.
The 9 Best Sushi Spots in Austin
Uchi continues to serve quality sushi that matches the sky-high price. It’s helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef-owner Tyson Cole, who trained for over a decade in Tokyo, NYC, and Austin under various sushi masters. This was once the hottest spot for sushi in Austin, but that could have been in part due to a limited sushi scene when it opened back in 2003. The sushi is still great, albeit on the diminutive side, so just don’t turn up expecting to leave with a full stomach unless you’re willing to shell out the big bucks. Pro tip: Come for happy hour instead, which runs every day from 4 pm - 6:30 pm.
