The ingredients were fresh and the quality of the food was quite decent. We were a large group, which stressed the staff a bit with too much conversation going on and little care about placing the order. Nonetheless it was a good experience and the price was very reasonable for the consumption we had.

I tried umai multiple times before coming here and writing this review. The one thing I like the most about this place is the vibrant atmosphere that it offers, aside from this the sushi quality is much bellow average quality of other sushi restaurants in sudbury. Let me say that I make sushi personally at home and I know very... More

Recently came here for dinner. I believe it is Korean owner and ordered the bulgogi. It came on a sizzling plate; however it was far from sizzling. The meat was not seasoned and looked like a used face cloth in clumps. Vegetables limp and old looking. Soft shell crab presentation looked like a chopped up something covered in breading and...

This restaurant is nicely decorated and very clean. Lovely Japanese music plays in the background, I love the atmosphere. The service is awesome, we were greeted right away at the door and escorted to our table and our drink order was taken right away and we were handed the menu. We ordered when the waitress returned with our drinks and... More

Wonderful experience, great meal, patient service, and all fresh. My wife loves sushi so we celebrated her birthday at Umai for the first time. They setup our two families of 5 each in a side room and were very patient with all our questions and 6 children. Definitely recommend Umai, its worth the little extra price.

Great food. Had the soft shell crab, tempura and various sushi dishes. Everything was hot and very tasty. Will visit again when in Sudbury.

My husband and I were driving on Paris Street when we spotted Umai and thought lets give it a try, like how bad can it be. We were seated within 15 seconds entering a very clean, pleasantly decorated restaurant. After pondering over the menu we finally decided to order. My husband ordered Nabe U-Don, (thick wheat flour noodle soup with... More

I normally get my take-out orders from Okinawa sushi on Regent St, and have never had a problem there, but decided to try Umai one night upon the recommendation of a friend... never again. I ordered California and spicy salmon rolls. The California were not for me, so I cannot comment, but the spicy salmon rolls were not very good... More

I feel like in a river somewhere, some tuna is saying "When it's my time, just serve me up at Umai" it's that good. I have the menu memorized we order from there all the time. Sushi is my treat food. I get good grades, sushi, I keep up my excise for a month, sushi, It's my birthday, sushi. If... More

I've been to every sushi place in town and Umai, by far has the best, freshest cuts of sashimi. Their food is prepared with pride and the wait staff are friendly and prompt.
