Hibachi at its finest. The staff, though new, were very knowledgeab and accommodating to food allergies. The show by the chef could use a little improvement, but the food he prepared was phenomenal. My steak was cooked perfectly to oder and the rice & veggie combo was so delicious, there was little leftover. Go if you get the chance!

My husband and I love to eat at UMI. It is the best sushi in the area. I recommend the crab cucumber salad as a starter. For special birthday occasions we eat around the hibachi grill. The service is top notch.

I took two guests from China here for dinner. They loved it. The selection of sushi rolls is large, and the quality of the food is good. We got there early (6:30 pm) and walked right in, but there was a line forming at 7 pm.

Great food and atmosphere. Always great service. It is one of my favorite places to go eat. The lady who manages it or owns it is very friendly.

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.
