This restaurant serves up Japanese surf and turf with myriad options for sushi and teppanyaki, popular tableside hibachi-grilled meats.
Former Musashino chef Kazu Fukumoto's namesake izakaya features classic sushi, tempura, and yakitori. Saké and an unexpected beer list keep things rowdy.
offers sushi with creative appetizers and entrées in a seductively hip space with an extensive selection of drinks, sake, and wine.
The restaurant provides Japanese and fusion cuisine in a modern and swanky yet relaxed setting. Find standard sushi offerings, including edomae – Tokyo-style sushi – and some signature rolls.
This restaurant isn't just the spot for sushi; it also serves Japanese tapas, or robata – a selection of grilled seafood, meats, and vegetables. A great date spot.
The sushi is fresh, professionally prepared, and complemented by the draft Ichiban. Don't leave without tasting the black cod and yellowtail.
This place takes its sake seriously, serving premium brands cold (as their makers intended). Don't miss the long sushi bar with some of the most beautiful fish in Austin.
It's no wonder this place has crowds, who could resist an Ex-Girlfriend roll (crab, avocado, spicy tuna, halibut tempura, spicy mayonnaise)? The crab cakes are huge, almost four inches in diameter, and mostly crab, bound by a light panko crust. The cucumber salad cools us off just in time to appreciate the tempura menu.
The James Beard Foundation found Uchiko chef and owner Tyson Cole worthy of its Best Chef award for the Southwest region; if that won’t get you in the door, you’re certifiable.
