What great chefs we found at a Japanese steakhouse in the middle of Kansas! We were looking for a little change of pace from the typical dinner out, so we decided to try this place and we were not disappointed. The food was average for a hibachi-style meal, but the chef we had was great! He was personable, really fun,... More

I ate at the sushi side so can't comment on the Hibachi group table experience. The memu was diverse and interesting. Our food was well prepared and presented. I even ordered uni which was ample and good. Service was fine and we didn't experience any wait like others have complained about. For a city not served by a large airport... More

I no longer live in MHK, but Umi was one of my favorite places to eat. I ate there 1-2 times a week for the better part of my last year in Manhattan, and regularly in the years prior. If you read my other reviews, you know I'm a sushi fan, and I love fresh fish. I have the special... More

I have posted on every site I can to share the unprofessional and worse customer service I have experienced in my 20 years in Manhattan. Waited for over a hour before our chef came to station to serve us. We had a party of 4 and had to wait for others to join us and watch them eat before anyone... More

A bit of venting follows but after a review I believe it to be valid. My wife and I visited this restaurant for the first time on a Sunday afternoon. When we arrived at 5:15 PM, the hostess inquired where wanted to sit.There are three sections; regular tables, a sushi bar, and Hibachi tables (where the chef cooks on a... More

There's hardly anything to do around this town other than trashy bars and nasty clubs where the college kids from KSU hang out. I went here with a group of friends and had a blast. The chef we had was very entertaining and served us ample portions of what we ordered. Unfortunately that's about all we did in Manhattan, KS.... More

This was my first experience in a Japanese steakhouse, and I have to say I enjoyed every minute of it. The chef was entertaining and did an excellent job - which has got to be hard to do while you're interacting with the diners. I ordered the chicken and fillet for my entree. The chicken was good - but the... More

My wife and I really like this restaurant. It's not cheap, but it's good sushi. In Manhattan. I approve. I recommend you go when you're quite hungry as it's wonderfully filling too. Great place.

My husband and I have eaten at Umi a few times, we always leave disappointed. The only reason we even bother going is because its the only hicachi place we've found within a reasonable drive. The food just isn't up to par with most Japanese steakhouses.

hibachi food was really good. the chefs placed a good show. but i have been to other hibachi places and they have been better. the sushi and sashimi were the best though. yummy! service was kinda slow as they were waiting for the whole table to be filled up.
