    Go for the sake social hour. Just order everything on the sake hour's menu and let the staff surprise you with how they queue it up. Sit back, relax, sip on your drink and the food will flow out

    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.

    Try the hot rock

    Emily Scruggs · May 8

    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.

    Unbelievably exquisite food with unparalleled service staff. By far, the best most unconventional sushi experience I've ever had.

    i had my bday dinner here and it was lovely. the menu is extensive so if i had to chose...my favorites: the hot rock (sear your own wagyu beef), scallop sushi, and fried milk dessert. skip the rolls.

    The jar jar duck is the best duck in Austin, which is why it’s on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Austin. Read more

  • Divya M.

    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.

    Hailed as one of the top Japanese restaurants in the U.S., this spot focuses on contemporary and farmhouse-style fare, respectively. You can’t beat the ever-changing tasting menu. Read more

    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.

    Sit at the sushi bar. The chefs are super friendly and the view of the kitchen is super fun.

    Hot rock and Jar Jar Duck are really unique and delicious.

    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

    Andy Wang · November 27, 2014
  • ASK Gwen C.

    The duck in the jar, grilled edamane, and pork belly

    Pork Jowel was insanely ridiculous. Can not leave this place without having Brussel sprouts

    Some of the best sushi I have ever had. Omikase was a great experience.

    Stephen Baker · November 1, 2014
  • Stirling M.

    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.

    Stirling Morris · October 21, 2014
  • David S.

    Do the omakase. Put your trust in the incredibly talented chefs and extremely attentive waitstaff. Fantastic experience.

    Best happy hours in Austin with bites and sips from $3 to $6

  • Brook S.

    Ask the waiter what they recommend, and try all of it. Avoid unless you can really dig in and explore the menu.

    Social hour can't be beat

    Paige · August 7, 2014

    Try to sit at the bar in front of Sushi Chef Angela and let her decide what you should eat. Totally heavenly.

    Jax Sanders · August 6, 2014
  • Logan W.

    Beef tongue is fantastic

    Logan West · August 3, 2014

    Get here right before 5pm for social hour or you'll probably miss out. Then, get the unfiltered Takara Nigori sake for $3 a pop.
