must try when come!
dessert was delightful
Feeling adventurous? Tora-fugu, poisonous puffer fish flown in from Japan, meticulously prepared by Hori-san to remove all the poisonous parts. Served sashimi-style with mullet roe & crisp fugu skin.
Magical flavors in both the Foie Gras & Duck Chawanmushi (egg custard with seared foie gras, duck breast, oyster mushroom, gingko nuts) & Uni Chawanmushi, Japanese style egg custard with fresh Uni.
Chef Hori-san up front at the sushi bar & Chef Jean-Philippe Gaston back in the kitchen pack a creatively delicious potent one-two punch that every foodie should explore on a regular basis. GoOmakase.
Mac and Cheese was amazing. Pork dumplings were great. Sushi was okay. A little pricey for what I would pay at a sushi place.
great place to have pork belly
Very unique rolls and drink menu! Very tasty! Plan ahead and make a reservation, even on week nights.
lobster mc and cheese is perfect
Tooooodo super delicioso
Damn good uni shooters! Needs more uni though... don't get stingy and prop my uni up with snow crab and think I won't notice. Raw scallops are the best part of the fatty sashimi for two platter!!
Longhorn roll and it seems all the Japanese people were getting the ramen which I'm getting next time
Spicy Raman is excellent. Great happy hour. Creative and delicious specials.
I can also vouch for the Lobster Mac & Cheese, it's delicious and a pretty good portion.
The Chirashi is well worth the $33. Sooo many types of sashimi! The duck dumpling shoyu ramen and rising sun roll don't disappoint either.
Sushi is good here, but the real star of the show is the lobster Mac & cheese. Other awesome choices are bone marrow (rich & tasty, done right) and Kobe beef (texture like butter, for real).
bone marrow is top notch!
scallop foie gras nigiri is the best bite you can possibly order
Try the lobster Mac and cheese and you will not regret it. The ramen here is also some of the best I've had and the portions are large too.
My favorite Sushi restaurant in Houston. Sit at the bar and ask the chefs to surprise you, and not to stop until you ask them to.
Kobe melts in your mouth
Good but not great. Can't really compare it to uchi.
Cold Curry Noodles
Food is great, sushi is ok but no service when you go lunch time, too busy too talk to your server.
You need to make a reservation for the omakase, since it takes a good three hours to prepare...
Dish: sashimi platter
Caribbean roll is amazing! How could you pass up lobster and mango!
The Rising Sun is really good and the peppercorn tuna on top is really fresh. The Texas hamachi is also good but the jalapeños on top can be really spicy or not at all.
The Kobe beef and pork belly appetizers melt in your mouth! Definitely coming back :)
The best rolls are the Rising Sun and Ocean Picante. Fabulous.
Lobster mac and cheese! amazing!
Get the ramen.
Absolutely love this spot. One of my fave sushi spots. Never disappoints
From cocktails, tar tar to their Hawaiian rolls they know what they are doing. Their appetizing hh pricing is irresistible. Watch out uchiko you might have found your "middle class" competitor.
The lobster Mac n cheese is a must!!
Kobe beef...I could eat that all day
If you really want to impress someone that enjoys Japanese cuisine, spring the Kata Robata on them. Damn.
Fresh, flavorful, high-quality food for a lot less than you'd expect to pay, which is why it was awarded Best Sushi in the 2012 Best of Houston® issue.
Delicious!! The crazy Irishman is the best roll! It's not on the menu but you can order it
They weren't kidding about the lobster Mac n cheese.
Make a reservation! 30 minute wait at 6:30 on a Wenesday
This is only place in Houston that has been certified to serve Fugu (aka pufferfish) if you are interested.
Awesome Sushi spot in Houston. They won't seat you unless your entire party is present, even with reservations. Happy hour during the week ends at 7!
All nigiri and sashimi are excellent. Kobe beef skewers are a must. Sit near front during busy times as wait staff can be amiss for long periods. For special cold and hot plates be prepared to wait
Awesome kata ramen and marrow!
