    The tasting menu is the way to see why this is Houston's best restaurant. Nigiri, duck, asparagus, venison, roasted carrots. All Delicious. Bring a full wallet, for special occasions only!

    What a joke! Extremely overpriced and overrated. For $250 I would expect more creative and delicious than raw fish covered with sea salt.

    Uchi has the best happy hour in Houston. Great dishes like the uchiviche and machi cure are so affordable, and the flavors are unmatched. Plus, rolls like the ham and egg are fun and filling!
