I admit that I'm not much of a sushi fan but we stopped here on a food tour and everything I tasted was delicious. That included a sushi roll, seared tuna, and pomegranate saki.

Their sign is on the main street but the restaurant is down a short side street. The rice/chicken hibachi was wonderful. Had one of the best reduction sauces we've ever eaten. Asked for a side of it to add to some of our veggies and no problem. My husband had the seaweed salad and said it was delicious. A really... More

Went with my friends one time and it was REALLY busy (which is good) and although it took a while for our sushi to get out, it was well worth it. Get some sake with your food for an even more enjoyable experience. Would try it on a less busy night!

Best sushi in Columbia. You can not find fish fresher than here. Also they have some of the best drink and food specials around, definitely check their website before you visit to see what the deals are.

Head here if you want good sushi in a great atmosphere. Not your typical Japanese décor, this is a hip converted warehouse with a small bar area and lots of tables.

The Hellfire roll was best sushi I have ever had! The jalapeño on top was the best addition! Great local younger feel with good food

Saki Tumi combines a mixture of a bar and sushi grill as we were impressed at how well they combined the two together. The atmosphere is great as it provided a nice retro/modern feel. The sushi was great and so were the appetizers. A great spot to eat before exploring the nightlife of Columbia.

Saki Tumi is located in the most beautiful area of Columbia, the vista. They provide complimentary valet so you don't have to drive around for 30 mins trying to find a parking spot like you do for most vista restaurants. It is the perfect location for a quiet, romantic night out. I have never had to wait for a table... More

Americans do some pretty weird stuff to sushi but this place was tasty, friendly and had a great range of options. Ate here twice and loved the atmosphere. The waitress put me at the sushi bar (as a woman travelling alone) and chatted to me all night which I appreciated. Definitely worth a visit.
