A bit expensive, Uni provides a unique take on sushi in a modern eclectic atmosphere. Great variety of sake. You won't find a rainbow roll but you will find lots of unique variations of maki and sushi, as well as caviar.....if you can afford it

A noisy setting for delicious food. The miso soup was good and interestingly different. The chef’s choice Nigiri (10 pieces) was delicious, each and every one. The green curry rice was nice, and while told it was “on the spicy side”, I found it to...More
