Incredible sashimi and the deep fried oysters were a real treat! Also can't go wrong with the cold house sake!

Staff and owners were lovely and covid-19 policies left us feeling really safe.

Great Japanese, lucky to live so close. Top notch food, like being in Tokyo. It's tiny, so book ahead. They also do lunch, which maybe a better time to go if you cant be bothered to book in advance.

Excellent service. Yummy and delicious food. We like the atmosphere and the brilliant friendly staff. Booking is essential. Everything is freshly prepared with obvious care.
Also feels very safe to eat hear during Covid
Thank you we had a lovely evening.

Great consistent high quality food as usual from Taro san and Elisa. Sashimi quality easily rivals higher priced restaurants like Roka.

I only went there for dinner because the rating on google was 4.9 out of 80 reviews ... but trun out to be very average food. It is expensive for what you get ... I was very disappointed would not go back again or recommend to others.

The decor and ambiance was great along with the service and food. You could tell that the food is made to order. Although it wasn't quite to my personal taste (I don't particularly like miso soup), I enjoyed the meal. My only critisism is that VAT isn't disclosed in the sale price, but that point is printed clearly on the menu.

We had a great night at Uoichi. We had an array of Japanese ‘tapas’, reordering several shared dishes because they were so delicious. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful with explaining some items.
A much more casual dining experience than other London Japanese restaurants.
Particular favourites were the chicken wings, gyoza and the sashimi is just fantastic.
All very good value as well coming in at £35 per head with several rounds of Kirin lager included.
Will definitely be revisiting.

Great first experience at Uoichi and it didn’t disappoint at all. Friends were raving about this place and now I understand why. The food is authentic and top quality as well as great value for money. It’s a no frills sort of environment which focuses of good food and friendly service. Having lived in Japan for three years, this certainly made me think back to some of my favourite izakaya spots in Tokyo. I would definitely go back!

Great little gem in my local area. Food was fresh and authentic, the sashimi u had was first class.

Service is second to none. The lady owner who runs the front of house is super friendly and helpful.

This place will now become my regular now. So glad I found it

Small restaurant managed by husband and wife. Food was lovely and service was great. The rib-eye steak which was on the specials deserves a special mention..perfectly cooked and melts in mouth.

Highlights for us were the salmon sashimi, tiger prawn teppanyaki and matcha ice cream (with delightfully unexpected mini mochi and red bean). Was pleasantly surprised by the quality - about half the price of Roka for something of higher quality and authenticity. I will be returning to get through more of the menu.

This small but very authentic Japanese Izakaya with excellent food is a best kept secret in Canary Wharf/South Quay area. Everyone must try the incredibly fresh Assorted Sashimi and the Japanese
style fried chicken. The Japanese owner chef is from Tokyo (hence the authenticity which is lacking
in major Japanese chain, such as Wagamama, Roka, Sticks and Sushi (though its owner is half Japanese),
etc. The staff was very attentive, professional and very friendly. We will come again!
