Coming out of Red Rock Park, we were hungry and looked for food nearby. The location seemed dubious but we were delighted with our lunch. The staff was friendly and we received fast service and delicious sushi. Recommended.

This used to be my favorite Sushi place nearby but in recent months it's gone downhill. While the rice is still good, (yes, I'm very picky about the rice) the fish itself has gotten thinner and more rubbery. I'm just not as impressed with this place as I used to be.

Have been eating in this place for 10 years. The restaurant had some setback since its re-structure with their original japanese chef had left. They also temporarily lost their liquor licence, that meant, no saki. It seems finally all back on the track, but personally I believe the quality/quantity of the food both went down significantly compared to few years... More

We actually visited this restaurant twice in our less-than-a-week visit to the area. The first night we went to dinner with family. Four of us split the party boat of sushi, which came with an amazing variety and beautiful presentation. The dinner that was ordered also was very rounded out with a beautiful presentation that included fresh flowers and succulent... More

My wife and I have been eating at Uokura regularly since the new owners took over (3 years or so ago). We have never had a bad meal. Uni (Sea Urchin) is a good indicator of their focus on freshness and quality. We have never had a bad serving of this very delicate item! Now that they finally received a... More

If you feel like just eating all the sushi you can handle then the $26 lunch and $23 all you can eat sushi at Uokura is the way to go. It is a limited menu but I've never been disappointed.

I have been eating here for about 7 years now and I have never had a bad experience. You cannot go wrong with the sushi, everything tastes excellent. I love the all you can eat options for lunch and dinner, whether eating with two people or a group of 12, the sushi is consistent. The staff is always friendly and... More

Excellent Sushi and very reasonable price. Very friendly people with interesting ethnic backgrounds. Hopefully they will get their liquor licence back soon.

Been going here for years. Last time we went we were told that they did not have their liquor license right now. Odd seeing that a renewal is about $150. The sushi was good and the service was prompt. Hope they get their license figured out soon.
