One of the best in Helsinki

We were welcomed by very friendly and warm Finnish girl and served by Indian young man (i'm sorry if i am... read more

This restaurant was originally suggested by my daughter's friend, a restaurant professional who has worked in several Michelin places, as the best sushi restaurant in Helsinki. Due to that our expectations were really high and they were met. We ate a large variety of sushi: all them were fresh and very nicely presented. Also the staff was really nice. The... More

Best sushi in Helsinki! A charming and authentic little Japanese restaurant in the Töölö district near Finlandia Hall and Opera House. Warm atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food. As a vegetarian, I don't usually like sushi, but the lea maki was heavenly. Can recommend to anyone and I will definitely come back.

We've been here twice this summer for a dinner, both times more than happy! Compare to general Helsinki food & wine pricing, these folk don't have rip-off margins, plus the wine list is from very good producers. Fish & seafood from a reputable supplier, too. Helsinki isn't exactly your Melbourne or Vancouver what comes to offshore Japanese food, but Umeshu... More

We had sushi for starters, then fried pikeperch with dashi broth and deep fried chicken. No desert. The sushi was very good, but can't say that there wouldn't be any place in Helsinki that is as good. There are. The fish was excellent, competing with fine dining. On the other hand the chicken and the sauce were a bit disappointment,... More

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.
