Houston Press' Description

The second-story location in the Rice Village can be difficult to find, but if you're a sushi lover, Kubo's is worth the hunt. While chef Hajime Kubokawa -- or Kubo-san, for short -- is no longer at the sushi restaurant he helped found with owner Yoichi 'Yogi' Ueno, nor is Manabu Horiuchi (who is setting the sushi world on fire at Kata Robata), it's still one of the best sushi joints in the city, a fact that's more impressive considering its longevity and the talent that's come through since the place opened in 2002. Try the daily specials for interesting fish finds like idiot fish, or order the enormous sashimi boat if you've got a group of people to impress. On the non-sushi side, the custard-like chawanmushi is the best in town and the bar scene is lively when filled with Japanese businessmen in the evenings.

    One of the best sushi joints in the city, a fact that's more impressive considering its longevity and the talent that it's worked with through the years.

    Sign up for their frequent dinner program! $10 for every $100 spent on food. And they bottle their own sake as well!
