    It's delicious! High brow Japanese done in a surprisingly casual environment. Prices are high, fish is fresh, preparations are creative. Get the tobacco cream to finish.

    Monday nights they have vegetable nigiri - think four varieties of mushroom, or avocado, squash and more. I am a sushi traditionalist and I *loved* it. Trumpet mushrooms to die for.

    Best sushi! Everything was amazing! Order the specials. For sake, order dreamy clouds. It is an amazing drink - slightly dry and not too sweet. The place is expensive, but is totally worth the money.

    Really amazing. The Fried Milk dessert is a MUST! The Yokai Berry and Pork Jowl are also favorites. The sake toro nigiri is incredible. Great options for everyone, even if you don't like raw fish.

    Simply put, they do amazing things with food. Big eyed tuna, Brussels sprouts, quail, beef tongue, hamachi, all things I'm not worthy of.

    Everything is awesome but the congee is out of this world! More cooked food than Uchi. Be prepared to drop some Benjamins for dinner but it's probably my favorite restaurant in Austin right now. now

    The yokai berry is divine. Full of flavor, the citrus, sweet pear, & salty kale stand alone, but next to the salmon, the dish is the most complete Japanese dish you could ever dream up. Wow, just wow.
