Everything was great, except that we had to wait 30 minutes to order. They realised eventually and apologised.

Great service. Very friendly team. Cocktails was fab. Food in general was good. Would have preferred crispier taco shells and I did not find the spicy sauce for Californian sushi rolls spicy.

Thanks so much to the team that were working on Friday the 24th of July. I mentioned on my booking that we were out for a special occasion and the waiter looking after us really went above and beyond what I expected to mark the event!

Went for the sushi. Table was a bit small, however, that was most likely our fault due to ordering (and wanting) so much on the menu. but the food and service was fantastic.

Ukiyo is one of my favourite sushi spots.
I highly recommend for a birthday or fun night out . There are also karaoke rooms and downstairs there is a cocktail bar/ club with really good DJs.

Service was very slow and they didn’t have record of our booking, but I’m sure that was due to the difficulties of reopening due to Covid-19 and getting used to it.

Great fresh sushi! And the cocktail jugs are good value (but not too boozy).

The bathrooms were filthy though, which put the experience down a bit.

From the moment I arrived to the moment I left was a dream, it was my first time out after lockdown and Lou and the team were exceptional. Our servers were so attentive to the point where I didn’t even have to flag anyone down. Absolutely will be returning - loved it.

First date night out since the shutdown, thrilled with our gorgeous meal with cocktails in Yukio. Friendly service and felt that all safety measures were being followed.
Really enjoyable evening, thanks all. Can’t wait to come back, especially for those sliders 🤤🤤🤤

Visited for lunch for the first time on 26/02/20. The venue itself appeared a little down at heel at first glance, but a great welcome from the staff more than made up for that. We had the Bento box lunch special and it was delicious - a great mix of sushi, noodles, salad, and dumplings with a side of rice. The bill including 2 coffees came to €28 which I thought was great value. Will definitely visit again

While the food was delicious, there were service errors made from our arrival through to the end of our meal -- no cutlery given until asked, wanted to find out if we could use vouchers (which we later realised we couldn't) but instead of checking for us like the server had told us she would, she left and never came back; leaving us in the lurch and having to ask another server could we pay (the table beside us also had issues -- when we arrived they had finished their starters and didn't receive their main until we had finished both our starters and mains). I wouldn't mind if it had been busy, but it was quite quiet, and quite clear that there was a lack of communication between staff. Probably wouldn't recommend it based on this alone.

Thanks for reviewing Ukiyo and while it is lovely to hear that you found our food delicious, we were very sorry to hear that service was under par. We are a family run business, open almost 16 years and pride ourselves in being great value and quality on all counts. We appreciate your feedback and accept that we made some errors on what should have been a great night out for you both and hope that you will give us an opportunity to redeem ourselves in the future!

We went for dinner after attending the Ireland v Scotland match in the Aviva. It had been a great day so we were hoping dinner would not break the momentum. Ukiyo absolutely made it a day & night to remember!
It was the 9pm sitting and we had both conservative and adventurous diners in the group. The staff were so friendly and informative and gave us the confidence to try lots of new dishes. We ordered lots of plates with the view of sharing both starters and mains and were accommodated with extra plates etc.
I tasted so many new dishes that I had never tried and can confirm the food was amazing!! I was so glad as I had chosen the restaurant.
A DJ started playing at 11am and we all ended up dancing while still having a place to sit. It was so great not to have to leave the restaurant and go elsewhere for late drinks and dancing.

The all-round verdict was that we are definitely coming back to Ukiyo as it worked for our group of friends on every level and made the night perfect. We might even book one of the karaoke booths next time to top it off!!
