Average food quality, limited food and beverage menus. Went here based on online reviews but found it did not live up to what we had read.

A colleague and I had a business trip here in the San Francisco area and stayed in San Rafael...we asked our hotel concierge for their recommendation for a good Sushi restaurant...they did not know of any in the area...so I went on Trip Advisor and saw this restaurant with 4 and 5 stars rating...so we went! Wow...what a great surprise,... More

Umi is a small family owned sushi restaurant. Owner makes the sushi - always delicious and his wife makes the udon, soba, and tempura dishes. We have always been pleased with our meals - fresh sushi, homemade udon, friendly service. I would definitely recommend.

This spot gets overshadowed by a later sushi place across the street. I have brought people here who have been to Japan and they rave at the authenticity of their presentation, including tea service. The owner and his wife are very sweet and personal. The food is always fresh and the"umi roll" is exquisite! Please support these folks!

Best sushi hands down. Fresh, flavourful, and just lovely. Order the spicy tuna roll or the unagi. Trust me on this. You will NEVER go back to Sushi to Dai For EVER again.

I love Akira's sushi. There are a lot of kinds of rolls and Hiro-san's special. I am always enjoying real Japanese taste and a little Americanized style rolls. Strongly, recommend! Please check it out.
