So, Uchi Lounge is a veteran on the Sydney dining scene, but many people have never heard of it.

This modern Japanese Restaurant – Izakaya – Sake & Shochu Bar (try saying that after a few Shochus) is located on a steep backstreet off Oxford Street in Surry Hills.  So, you may understand why for most, it remains a well kept secret.  It’s the kind of place you need to know about, as you’re unlikely to just walk by.

It’s a two story restaurant, with a large stone communal dining table downstairs and an upstairs restaurant with individual tables.  The decor is traditional Japanese, with minimalist design and simplicity, but it retains a cozy atmosphere.  The restaurant screams, or rather whispers, ‘Zen’.

Renowned Chef and Owner Takashi Ohuchi has brought his distinct fusion of old and new to Uchi Lounge, which has a ‘No MSG’ and ‘No Artificial Flavouring’ policy and focuses on organic produce.

The wait staff, all Japanese (surprise, surprise), are polite, quietly spoken and attentive.

Shh…let’s just keep this between us, okay?

In a nutshell:

Price:  $$  Appropriately priced for the fare.
Fare:  Modern Japanese.  No MSG.  No artificial flavouring.  Good Shochu and Sake menu.
Service:  Quiet, polite Japanese efficiency.
Location:  Hidden in a back street in Surry Hills.
Ambience:  Zen.
