Uchi Lounge

Review of Uchi Lounge


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.
