LOL...the quality of the fish and variety is better than the "other" business near by, offering all-you-can-eat menu. I also like the personalize service and quietness of the locale. Take your time to look at the menu and ask for the daily specials.

Introduced by my wife who has been dining here for quite a very while. Came here for lunch. Ordered the normal Japanese dish which I could eat--no raw stuffs (but from the people who ate them during my visit here, those were good). Recommended.

My family has been going to Uoko for over 20 years and we have always enjoyed it but this last time wasn't up to par. The décor and furniture hasn't changed a bit. The cushions they put on the booth benches are flattened and worn and don't offer much padding at all anymore. The service is still fast and friendly.... More

Our friends took us to dinner at Uoko this evening. It was absolutely amazing. You name it, the sushi chef will make it. I was introduced to some sushi I have never had and I have been eating sushi for years. The monkfish liver is fantastic as are the Japanese scallops. My wife does not eat fish and got an... More

My sons and I went here for dinner and the service was quick and friendly. One son had sushi which he liked very much and he is accustomed to eating high quality sushi. My other son and I had the teriyaki chicken and beef, plus some tempura. We both liked our dinners too. I felt the prices were reasonable for... More

We frequently visit Uoko as its close to home and the food and service is always good. My husband loves it because they usually have Toro. It's not fancy, but well established. I'm a Spicy Tuna Roll fan- not a super adventurous sushi eater. The Spicy Tuna Roll isn't too spicy, but is always fresh and tasty.

This is our "go-to" place for sushi when we want a reliable sushi experience. It's not fancy and the decor isn't anything special, but the fish is always fresh and perfectly prepared, the sushi chef is very attentive and always remembers what we like, and we never leave disappointed.

The sushi chefs are fun, creative, and will custom make you something you can't find anywhere else. They have Japanese beer on draft, and cooked/baked dishes as well. Bonus: the desert is hand made fresh every day - always something different and always devine.

Little Japanese restaurant tucked in the corner which can be hard to spot. A nice, local restaurant with delicious food with great service!

I am a tempura lover and Uoko has the most reasonably priced shrimp and vegetable tempura luncheon around!!! The service is excellent. The location cozy. It is located in Oak Tree Plaza. A few of us "old timers" know that the tree in the center is really a camphor tree but the developer did not think that was a catchy... More
