When you think of Texas, the first thing that comes to mind is probably not sushi. However, sometimes you get a craving for the stuff no matter where you are. Uchi, located at 801 S Lamar Boulevard in Austin, offers a menu filled with all of your favorite sushi dishes, and it is one of the best restaurants in Austin, TX.
Uchi is the Japanese word for house, and the restaurant is located in an old South Austin bungalow. All of the fish you will eat at this restaurant comes from sustainable sources and they still procure the best seafood from around the world.
The atmosphere is casual and most of the guest are walk-ins, but if you have an exceptionally large party, you may want to make a reservation. Uchi is a great place to hold a private party and they can accommodate up to 45 people.
