Umeshu restaurant was recommended by my food lover friend, and I have to say that our sushi menu was absolutely the best I have ever taken in Helsinki, actually of a high Asian quality. The wines recommended by the waiter fitted perfectly with the menu dishes that consisted of 5 tasty courses: sushi assortment, sashimi, salmon and avocado, beef/fried pikeperch... More

I think it's one of the best sushi restaurant in Helsinki, it's a walking distance from the city centre and the food is great- even the vegan sushi is good, inari being my favourite.

I decided to visit Umeshu having read all the great reviews and that it was supposedly the best place for sushi in Helsinki. It seems that, either the quality has suffered drastically since previous reviews, or that the other reviewers are full of poop. The food was average, the service was average, but above all the place was incredibly crass... More

I went here and ended up having the Beef Tataki which was outstanding! I was really happy with the food and would love to come back again. I am not sure about the rest of the menu, but the prices were good and my food was outstanding. The only drawback was that the restaurant is really small and you get... More

We went to enjoy sushi to Umeshu. This was our first time here and we had the plate of 30 and I have to say that all of the assortments were very delicious and tasteful. We liked the atmosphere and the decor. The staff was welcoming and joyful and the service was excellent. We will definitely come here again!
