Looking for the best sushi in Austin. What is your favorite?

  1. I like Maru; it's nice and fresh, not too pricey, and seriously unaffected. And, they're kid-friendly; if my toddler actually enjoyed sushi, we'd probably take him there!

    1. Musashino Sushi Dokoro, Maiko Sushi Lounge. These are two of the best.

        Musashino Sushi Dokoro is good, but Uchi always seemed a bit nicer and fresher...but obviously more expensive.

      2. My wife and I just ate at Uchi for the first time and it was very good: the fish was incredibly fresh and they have creative offerings in addition to traditional sushi and shashmi. I would say it's definitely one of the best sushi places I've been to anywhere, not just in Austin.

          Just make sure you finish with the Black Pepper Sorbet.

        2. Uchi, Mikado, Mushashino, and Midori are my tops.

          These are in my second tier: Osaka, Ichiban, Sushi Sake, Kenichi, Maru

            Has anyone tried the new sushi place that opened up in a small strip mall on the corner of Braker Ln and Metric, just behind the Walgreens? I was at Walgreen after work, don't recall the name.

          2. You might try these thread for more detailed reviews (I put in a long break down on the first thread):
