We went primarily for the food, not the atmosphere. Brussel sprouts and Hot Rock Flank were good. Sashimi and Sushi were more “designer food” than real Japanese. Many items on the menu seem overpriced. The fact that Uchi and Uchiko are the top two rated...More

Sounds like hyperbole...I can assure you it’s not. We sat at the sushi bar and Matt meticulously hand-crafted each mouth-watering bite we took. Hama Chili made a tear come to my eye. The flavor profiles were so spot on. Everything was so well composed. I’ve...More

We are proud to announce... Chef Tyson Cole, winner of the 2011 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef Southwest--Thank you Uchi and Uchiko family and friends for your support! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Uchiko, translated as "child of Uchi" from Japanese, is the next restaurant venture for renowned executive chef and sushi master Tyson Cole. Located in central Austin, this second location of Cole's highly-praised Uchi presents the same excellence and energetic atmosphere of the original with some noteworthy additions. Uchiko features a new menu with Uchi's same style of innovative and fresh cuisine, a main dining room that accepts reservations throughout the evening and an eat-in bar/café area.
