Ukiah was featured in Uncorked Asheville’s 40 Unforgettable Asheville Restaurants article. See what they had to say below!
“…Our friends best described dinner at Ukiah as a near-religious experience. They are 200% correct.
For one of the best new Japanese restaurants in Asheville (2021), Ukiah is sure to wow you. Located on Biltmore Ave., choose from Japanese street food and tapas with an American BBQ twist.
Sounds a bit unique, right? Get ready for an incredible dining experience.
Yes; Ukiah is a bit pricy but also 100 % worth it. Think meat skewers, shrimp cocktail, ramen, and raw sushi-grade fish. This is an Asheville restaurant to treat yourself.
Most of Ukiah’s dishes are meant for sharing, but you can order an entrée too. They can accommodate dietary restrictions.
Inside, the bar is gorgeously decorated, and the rest of the restaurant will transport you out of the city. Of course, Ukiah Japanese Smokehouse’s cocktails are classy and equally amazing.
Make reservations and bring an extra sweater in the fall and winter, especially if you wish to enjoy their outdoor patio with the beautiful stone fireplace.
We recommend parking at the Biltmore Ave. garage….”
