    This is the perfect place to get fresh sushi! The thinly sliced yellowtail with parmesan cheese, jalapenos, habanero tobiko, and ponzu sauce is definitely a fan favorite and a must try! Read more

    If Uptown Park had its own reality show, it would be called "The Fake and the Fabulous" and it would be filmed here. Mediocre sushi, great lobster soup, & great pours, great people watching here! $$$

    The fish seems fresher and the sushi chefs seem sharper here than anywhere else, and Uptown is certainly one of the trendiest of its type in the city. Read more

    The decor is very nice,the nigiri is about 2.50 a PIECE which is very expensive, but is fresh and great tasting. We got 2 specialty drink, 6 nigiri, 1 special roll for about 60 dollars as reference

    The Teriyaki Ribeye Maki with avocado and sweet potato is great as either an entree or group appetizer.

    Very Vegas feel as far as decor goes...I expected more of a fusion restaurant especially with all the competition around

    Don't sit in one of the metal chairs. Sit in the booth or you'll be uncomfortable all evening.

    Avoid for lunch. They forgot to update their website to mention that they have completely abandoned their usual lunch menu in favor of a newer, crappier menu. :-(

    Much better places for sushi in Houston... like Aka, Crave, Soma and The Blue Fish at Bayou Ctr. Skip this place.

    Flat sodas and mediocre sushi in the form of a tasteless Dragon roll have me rethinking Uptown. Yikes.
