We happened to go there on a very busy night at a particularly busy time. Thus, the service was pretty slow. However, the chef put on a good show, and the food all tasted good. My wife and I split a vegetable hibachi and a side order of salmon. The salmon was particularly tasty, and the fried rice was great.... More

I have eaten at numerous Japanese Steakhouse's over the years, but none rank as high with me as Umi! Absolutely the best sushi EVER! Service is impeccable and the other menu items are delicious as well. I make it a point to eat here as often as I can! UMI ROCKS!

Our whole family loves this place. Great food, fun atmosphere, good service. Ask for Summer as a wait person, he is the best! Quick, friendly with an incredible memory. He is what you dream about in a waiter. The Green Tea ice cream is so good.

The cucumber crab salad is better here than anywhere I have tried. We go for the lunch specials 2 rolls for $6.95. Always made fresh and quick.

When you're tired of the typical restaurant food, Umi's is the place to try! The food is always delicious, and the service is excellent. It's a fun dining experience for the family.

I considered this the best place to eat in Starkville. I rarely ate on the hibachi side but the place was always clean food was tasty, wait staff courteous, and price was reasonable.

I went to Umi's on a weeknight, hoping to have a pleasant experience. I was disappointed on several fronts; first, we called ahead asking if reservations were necessary and were told "no". We also asked if if would be a problem being seated in the hibachi side, and again were told "no". When we arrived 30 minutes later, we were... More

Excellent! The food prices are average compared to other Japanese restaurants. My fiancé and I ate at the hibachi grill. We had to wait a few minutes longer than normal for a chef because they were busy cooking for a large group. Which was fine. We enjoy going there.

The cucumber and crab salad is the best I've ever had in any Japanese restaurant and always crisp and fresh. The shrimp fried rice is also a favorite, you get 5 or 6 large shrimp with very tasty fresh fried rice. Every sushi roll I have tried is always rolled to order. A must try in Starkville MS.

The sushi is soooo good! The hibachi is great, too! The owners are really friendly and appreciate the business. If you are a repeat guest, you are remembered!
