My husband and I love sushi so we decided to try Umi based on a recommendation. Beware!! It is not very good. The spicy tuna roll was barely edible. The shrimp tempura and philly rolls were just ok. But the worst was a "fantastic" roll. It looks like a rainbow threw up on it with green, pink and orange mayo... More

Didn't eat the sushi but what we had was tasty. Rice bowls and ramen chicken were both good and the customer service was fine.

It makes me sad to write this because the food is actually not bad, but good luck if you have an issue with your food because "no discounts" even when it was their error. In my opinion, when you have loyal customers who have defended you in the past, you should do anything to keep them.

Let me preference my comments, I lived in Japan for half my life, and have had sushi a time or two. I didn't expect a lot, and my sights were too high. My worst dining experience in years. The soup was undrinkable. Simply horrible. The sushi rice was particularly bad, it wasn't prepared properly as sushi rice at all, just... More

Local mom and pop - literally: wife was running front of gouse and husband was cooking. Everything was fresh and cooked to order. Steak hibachi was solid. Good lunch options/prices. Don't forget to ask for extra yum-yum sauce. Nice little local joint for a quick hibachi fix.

The food is delicious at Umi! I love getting the hibachi food and the sushi! The staff is always smiling and they recognize returning customers. If you like Japanese food and/or sushi- this is the place for you! You can dine-in or carry-out!

We have been coming here for about 5 years now. It's close by, fast, and not fast food! The sushi is pretty decent. However I have begun eating the bowls-they have a great tenderloin steak bowl and the chicken bowl is also good. They don't give you many shrimp in the shrimp bowl, and it costs more. The rice is...

I go to Umi's a lot! They know my family and are always friendly. The sushi is spectacular as well as their ramen dishes.

As always I can never remember from one sushi restaurant to another what some of the items are on the menu, and therefore order too much and this time was no exception. Our son orders from here regularly and we ordered food for 5 adults. Multiple shopping bags full of sushi later we headed back to his house. Fortunately we... More
