Excellent food and service - quite speedy which is nice. Just a heads up that the outside seating often includes sirens bc fire station :-) Inside ambiance is clean and modern.

I love the Austin “foodie” scene but there are times I just want some authentic sushi (eg no fusion). This place hits the mark. Will certainly be back.

The food is delicious. The service was poor but it was mainly our waitress. The rest of the staff was super nice, helpful, and energetic. The music is too loud and not in line with the restaurant, which makes it very odd and challenging to talk with and enjoy company

The fish was very fresh. They have real Wasabi which is a strong indication of Japanese anesthetic. The finely diced fresh ginger (instead of pickled pink stuff) was a great addition, but serving size was small. They had some innovative and unusual dishes. My two complaints are that while the sashimi slices were only a bit smaller than standard, the fish on the sushi were 1/2 to 2/3 typical. Should be called mini-nigiri. 😄 My second order of aji-bones came out cold, but that's a waiter problem, not a restaurant problem.

Our server Elliot check on us like twice… was kind of rude?! Considering how expensive the food was, we were expecting to be treated with more respect so that was disappointing but the sushi was good

Sushi was very good quality fish. I was not happy because I booked for a table and not counter seating. Before being seated, I was told that it was not available when I asked. I thought this is unacceptable especially when you make a reservation. Our water was not refilled. Service was kind but could have been more attentive to bring us another bottle of water.

Our server was super friendly and helpful. The food was both unique and delicious. After our first visit, I'd be willing to try anything on the menu, because I'm sure they do it great. It wasn't a cheap night out, but it is one I'd happily pay for again.

Our reservation was at 6:45 but we weren’t seated until 7:15. The hostess then told us that we only have two hours but that we needed to leave by 9. I tried explaining that it’s not our fault that we were seated so late and that from 7:15 to 9 doesn’t equal 2 hours. She just ignored me and repeated that we have to leave by 9. After that no one acknowledged us for another 15 minutes. No one apologized for how late we were seated. Service was also extremely slow so leaving by 9 was impossible.

The food was excellent as always. Service was good. However, when I arrived, my seat wasn’t cleaned, it looked as though food had been dropped on it and it wasn’t wiped. The floor at the counter seats also had food crumbs below the chair. Perhaps left over from lunch service since I was there for happy hour. I pointed it out the chair and it was sprayed and wiped down promptly. But I’d prefer to arrive to a clean seat, table, and floor.

I have actually been here twice in one week because it’s so amazing. The wagyu roll is to die for, and the tempera veggies and shrimp are PERFECTLY fried. I would’ve came a third time this week if my schedule permitted. Love love love!!!

Overall, this was a great date night spot. My favorite part about it would have to be the drinks. The food came out promptly and our server was extremely good. The sushi was good, but in comparison to some other spots in Austin is wasn’t my personal favorite. Overall, I will come back and do recommend!

We had a wonderful lunch at Neighborhood Sushi. It’s hard to find the entrance but it’s worth looking for. The place is very nicely decorated and clean and all food that we ordered was very good. They probably had the best tempura that we’ve had, it was very light and not oily at all. The sushi was very fresh and of high quality, as good as the other top sushi restaurants in Austin, but for a much better value here in my opinion. Service was great. We will definitely be back.

Service was a little aloof but pleasant enough. Loved the wide variety of options - some traditional, some with an interesting twist, like pickled plum. We ordered a lot and loved everything. The tempura in particularly was really good and remarkably light. Will most definitely go back.

What a hidden gem! I have walked by this place so many times and just noticed the symbols written on the front of the building, but did not know what is was. I had heard such great things about Neighborhood and after finally giving them a try, I now know why the reviews are so great!
Although you see the symbols on the front, you actually enter the restaurant from the parking lot which is directly located in the back. We immediately loved the cool, modern vibe and knew we were in for a good time as every table was taken.
For a group of 6, we ordered grilled edamame, miso soup, egg drop soup, shishito peppers, various nigiri, torched wagyu short rib roll, spicy tuna roll, tempura shrimp and fatty tuna rolls, the special of crab croquettes and the tempura shrimp hand roll topped off with a magnum of sake...everything was delicious and surprisingly reasonably priced!
