I've been to Uni three times in the past two weeks, and each time I've ordered a different dish. So far I've tried the chicken breast teriyaki, mongolian beef, and spicy shrimp. and gyoza. All were very tasty and flavorful.I haven't experienced the small portions mentioned by other posters, but as those posts are from two years ago, perhaps this issue has been corrected.What I liked.I really appreciate that the meats used are very lean. Ive been to many teriyaki places that give you meats that are full of fat and gristle. Hate that. Not a fan. I generally will not re-visit an establishment that serves that type of food.Their teriyaki sauce has it's own flavor, which is pretty good. It doesn't taste like every other joint.The gyoza are really good. I they're fried, not steamed. It's a nice change as most places stem them. It's a light fry, meaning it's not greasy. Spicy shrimp at level 4 was nice and hot! SPICY!What I didn't like.The shrimp was tough and had a very strong, "fishy" odor to them that you could smell through the seasoning of the dish. I'm from Chalmette, LA, and if I know anything, I know about shrimp. This is a tel-tale sign of shrimp that's not fresh. I'm finding this to be a tough one in these types of places, as they're not hitting fish markets on a daily basis to get the freshest ingredients. I understand why they don't, as it's expensive, but in the end, the dish suffers because of it. I was aware of the chance of this when I ordered, so I wasn't too surprised when I got my order. That being said, it didn't ruin the dish, but it wasn't as good as it could have been if the shrimp had been fresh. Bottom line, if your business is doing even moderately well, never skimp on fresh seafood.The Mongolian beef was good. I liked it overall, but what disappointed me were the red chili peppers. They were near flavorless, and had the texture of very dry cardboard. Usually, eating one of these things will light your mouth up, but not these. Again, otherwise a good dish.Overall I will go back and try more dishes. The servers have been very nice and welcoming. Each time I've gone, there's always been people in the dining room, which is a sign of a good place to eat.
