A Good Lunch

Our group of four decided to come here for lunch. We ordered a green dragon roll (which was very large) and the lunch special (soup, salad, sushi and sashimi). Prices were reasonable and we all got a lot of food which was tasty. Service was good but then we were the only ones in the restaurant... read more

Went here with friends today, and its was OK I give it four star just cause I love the service and environment but the food can be a bit better. Keep up the good work.

We stopped in. On spec. And we loved it. Good sushi, really good sushi, which caught us off guard in Sudbury. Good value. Good service. We will be back.

Umai used to be the best sushi restaurant in the city. Over the last few years it has gone downhill. I have not eaten here in nearly a year. Tried it out again tonight to see if things of gotten better. I was absolutely appalled. The food was so terrible we barely touched it. The sushi rice was so over... More

I good here when its birthdays or new years for dinner and their always doing a fantastic job. The food is great and the combos are good price too. I love the style of the little sections they have it feels like you in Japan. If you like sushi or starting out new go to Umai.

While traveling recently, we stopped in Sudbury for some lunch and chose to try Umai Sushi. We found the staff friendly and were quickly shown to our table in a pleasant manner. Our waitress seemed a bit unsure of some of the items on the menu but tried to answer our questions. The food soon arrived and was by our... More

The dish I ordered had a ton of pepper on it. The bento box meals are good. The server was a chump kid who didn't want to be there and did a crap job at serving people. Tables went un-cleaned, even though it was almost empty. No people skills whatsoever. No help ordering, no follow-up with the meal. When I... More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. First impression is that umai has a nice japenese style ambiance. Took a little while to get seated even though the restaurant was largely empty. There was no hostess so don't be shy and just walk into the dinning room. It took a pretty long time to get service so we just combined... More

Used to be very high quality fish and rolls, since the last 6 months continuously been disappointing. As a long time weekly customer, I recommend you try other places in Sudbury. Will not be going back.

This restaurant was my favourite but now not so much! The sushi rolls r falling apart they can't keep staff. Which leads me to believe the owners r difficult ppl. The quality of the fish is not as good as it used to be as well. Also, I love that the owners recruited their kid to help out in the... More
