Fantastic sashimi. We had no expectation when entering the restaurant, but this was amazing! Big sashimi-pieces and beautifully arranged plates. A joy for both the eye and the stomachs.

Nice little restaurant, very good sushi (for Switzerland), good and rapid service and reasonable prices. Definitely will be returning! You need to find parking in Chexbres though.

My wife and I went there last Saturday. We did not know "Chez Yoshi" is now called UMI. The new owners offer both Japanese and Chinese cuisine. The service was really great. We ordered hot sake to accompany our sashimi and sushis. After some time, the waitress came to suggest to warm it up. We tested both the Japanese and... More
