Pretty good vegetarian 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... read more

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!

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.

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 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.
