The sushi selection is really good. We enjoyed the sushi & fried rice. Umi has a good menu. This is a great place for couples & families.

Best food! Waitress was nice! Loved the feel of the place when I walked in! The detail of the decoration was beautiful. Didn't have to wait for a table either. I would recommend this place for everyone to eat! I definitely will go here again!

I like watching the chef make fried rice on the griddle/hibachi in front of us, and cooking the steak or chicken to order. However, it is a bit disconcerting when the surface blazes up and if one were wearing a lot of hair spray I am not sure what would happen. I prefer the food without the special sauce but... More

UMI has been open for a number of years. We never tried it because my husband doesn't like the Japanese Steakhouses where they cook in front of you. Though entertaining, they usually add too much salt and add things I can't eat, such as butter and eggs. We decided to try it yesterday and were pleasantly surprised to find that... More

I don't generally think of Florence Alabama and great sushi going together...but this place proved me wrong. Great prices, decent selection and very good.

I had heard good things about Umi for a couple of years & finally decided to try it. They have a great menu--lots of choices. I really enjoyed the Niko chicken. Friends had sushi and said it was very good as well. I'll be going back!

Went here with friends and it was great. A neat experience to watch the cook prepare your food. Food was great and very filling. Will definitely go back for lunch. The dinner is a little pricy.

I've eaten here a few times being that I'm from Florence and as a local I would suggest eating at Hibachi instead. Umi is good but expensive. You also have to order off of the dinner menu at night whereas at Hibachi you can order the smaller, cheaper, portions at dinner.
