This sushi restaurant is so popular that a reservation is recommended on (at least) Friday evenings. The staff is attentive and atmosphere is cozy. I have tried many sushi restaurants in Helsinki, but this is the best this far. Try having glass of cava while waiting for your sushi.

Everyone says great stuff about restaurant Umeshu. I think the vegetarian sushi has always been pretty good but nothing to brag about. The lunch set is a good deal though. I have tried only Umeshu's lunch so far. Who knows, maybe in the near future I'll try their dinner list as well. I can recommend eating in Umehsu if you... More

I have visited the two Umeshu restaurants (the main one on Pohjoinen Hesperiankatu and the second one, open on weekends only, on Runeberginkatu) probably dozens of times, and they have never let us down even slightly. The very well prepared sushi and sashimi have been impeccable every single time. You will not find better anywhere in Helsinki. The real treats,... More

Great sushi, one of the best you can get in Helsinki! The pieces are quite small in size (easy to eat) but the taste is very fresh. The rice-fish ratio is excellent a.k.a. small ball of rice topped with a nice slice of fish :) I had some steamed edamame as a started and the portian was big! My friends... More

I have been to this great sushi restaurant dozens of times and every time I am very satisfied with the freshness of the incredients and the quality of the food plus the presentation of the food. I really love Japanese food and sushi in particular and I have been to a large number of sushi restaurants in Asia (including Japan),... More

I have visited Umeshu twice during the last two months. Sushi is excellent, beautiful and delicious. I dried the scallops too and they just melted in my mouth - strongly recommended. Umeshu is my new favorite for sushi in Helsinki.

Having eaten here about 100 times, I must say that the quality and freshness of the japanese food in Umeshu is always of high standard. Sushi sets are excellent value, but try also some of the izakaya style dishes. Their cold soba noodles dish with a poached egg on top is wonderful! Very polite service and you can watch the... More

Excellent taste, excellent service, great great value! absolutely love it! The Umeshu at Runeberginkatu serves best sushi outside Japan, at least my stay in Osaka, Tokyo and Kyoto.

The food is pretty good here, however the service is SLOW. Also the omakase menu is mostly unavailable, and also consists of too much food. Please take the cold, mealy sake off the menu, even if it is authentic, it is terrible!
