I've dined in twice, once during happy hour and once not. I would say going during happy hour is definitely the best deal. The food is fantastic, but they bring out all the sushi pieces at once, rather than coursing it out. Feels a little rushed, and if you're ordering a lot of sushi, then the rice gets cold and the fish warm. Servers are sweet, but not very interactive, and you're paying Uchi sushi prices without the seafood knowledge.

Really a wonderful new spot on SoCo. The outdoor space is perfect and comfortable. The birds nest salad was outrageous- beautiful and delicious. The sashimi served on ice was a piece of art, and more importantly just amazing.

Mediocre at best. The wagyu beef app was the best thing ordered. The sushi rolls were comparable to something you would get at a grocery store. Central Market might even do better. Very unimpressed with this new concept from such a well known group. Spend your money at Uchi.

Live walking distance from this spot so wanted to give it a try. Bummed you can’t see the sushi bar...I get its COVID but the bar was designed and built to not show the fish and the chefs working...the one thing they did incredibly well was their edamame and tempura...they have that down! I would recommend going for apps and drinks...also please note they are only beer,wine and sake.

There are better sushi spots nearby for the same price.

A welcome addition to Austin and this part of town. Perfect name because this is what it really is - a neighborhood sushi place - enter from the back of the building you feel like you are in a blend of South Austin and Kyoto. We were very impressed with the Sushi quality driven by Jorge (if you know his work then you will not be disappointed here) and he brings a level of expertise not seen in most places. Very good menu of other items with solid tempuras and fish collars. Will continue to frequent this place as the prices were not too high for a regular rotation place.

I've eaten at Neighborhood Sushi twice now and I really loved it both times. The elephant in the room is how it compares to the Uchi restaurants and I think that is an unfair comparison. Both clearly have the best (freshest, best tasting) fish in Austin. The Uchi restaurants are focused a bit more on unique flavor combinations on their nigiri while Neighborhood sushi is about the sublime simplicity of high quality fish and perfectly cooked and seasoned rice. Both are worth checking out and both are worth returning to.

Second trip here and can’t wait to go back. I’m usually a try new places kind of gal, but can’t stay away. Will be back soon to try out happy hour.

Get the scallop nigiri. Do yourself a favor.

Very clean, really good food and wine/sake selection. I wish they had liquor cocktails but the ones they have are still really good. Great spot for a romantic date or to catch up with friends. The front door being in the alley kind of threw our group off but makes sense for the flow of the restaurant once you are in it. Great spot and will be back!

Nice to see my girls! The rolls could use some work. But the quality level of the fish is what I would expect from this restaurant group. Nigiri & sashimi are delicious! Soups are awesome! Wine & Sake list is on point! I recommend. Feels like a little mom & pop sushi joint, good vibes.

The atmosphere was very trendy! We enjoyed our drinks, we had a variety of rolls which were okay, nothing mind-blowing. Surprisedly, the california roll was my favorite roll! It was very fresh and the best California roll I have ever had! Loved the appetizers and drinks! Would recommend for a date night or friends get together.

Hard to find the first time. Back entrance, obscure door. Good but very busy place. The servers are attentive, it just took a while - 30 min for first round of sushi. Got a bit faster soon after but I think there were a lot taking advantage of the happy hour and slowed down orders. Lots of take out going on as well. There were some really creative hand rolls which I would try if I went back. Our favorite Yellowtail scallion roll.
