Lots of vegan options that are clearly marked on the menu. Try the iggy popper roll with vegan cream chz, seriously, it's the best! It's surrounded by other really awesome businesses (if you're vegan or if you're not, stop by No Bones right next door for a drink). Only 4 stars because the fish tanks are sick and sad. I... More

We're from San Francisco and we have plenty of good sushi places, but this place was fantastic! Next time we're in Portland we will definitely go there. We loved the atmosphere too, the fish tanks were... More

This little spot has a nice location right on Mississippi. I didn't get any food but just went in for a couple of drinks. Bartender was great and willing to make any drink he knew. Until I have some of their sushi I can really justify a 5/5.

I liked this sushi place because they did not skimp on the size of the fish for each individual piece as I have noticed happening at my sushi restaurants in NJ. Service was good as well

We came to Uchu for an appetizer and were not disappointed. We had the dynamite roll and it was amazing. Service was good and we enjoyed sitting out on the patio area

We were looking for a restaurant that could offer a good selection for our group, vegans to carnivores. Uchu was perfect! Tons of choices, meat, poultry, seafood, veggies. Many options, small plates to full meal deals. I had miso soup, inari, fried tofu, and salmon cheek...each of these small plates $2. - $6. Really? Salmon for $6.? Each were hot,... More

This places advertises its fried chicken, but honestly I wasn't impressed. It was seasoned fairly blandly and even came out slightly burnt. The sushi was great though, and being able to sit in front of the fish tank definitely made for an entertaining dinner.

I really liked it here. They have a large happy hour menu and I love the vibe of the place. I can't vouch for the fried chicken but the sushi was great. I would recommend a visit to Uchu next time you're on Mississippi.
