Although service is spotty, especially the stoned face of a certain waitress, we love certain sushi rolls here that no one else has. The private room and nice Japanese warm decor make up for the lack of personality and lack of personal warmth from the staff or owners... Almost every dish is tasty and well decorated. This is not a... More

I must preface by saying that the fact that we have excellent "all you can eat" sushi places in town may colour my rating. More to this point, I am accustomed to having lots of food at a very reasonable price. That said, the food was quite good, especially the salmon sushi--I loved the size of the serving although the...

Very quiet and comfortable restaurant. Our waitress (whose name I sadly do not remember) was outstanding and went out of her way to explain the menu. She said she had been working there for a month and was loving it so much she was planning to throw a sushi party for her friends. We ended up with too much food,... More

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
