We have ordered from UMI several times and have never been disappointed. The only problem is being careful not to order too much. It all tastes so good, that you will wish you could more. We will be going back.

The waiter recommend the chef specialty beef and it was awesome. I also enjoyed the sunset cold appetizer wrapped in rice paper. Total bliss. Highly recommend.

We don't usually eat Japanese food, and never sushi. We went for lunch today & enjoyed it. The décor is really fine. Very much enjoyed the shrimp tempura. A great place to get something different. The main dish came with some interesting sides, and the servings were large.

Were in the mood for Japanese food, and had read about this restaurant. But, never expected the food to be this delicious. I tried a bento box; didn't really know what it was, but sounded interesting enough to try. My husband had the shrimp tempura. Must say both dishes were way beyond our expectations. I recommend you plan on an... More

This was a great experience my friends and I gave Umi a try with all the great reviews. We love sushi it did not disappoint. Service was friendly and the sushi was great, We tried a variety of items and enjoyed them all. Atlanta has some great sushi joints but umi is right up there with the big city.

Excellent service, atmosphere and exceptionally fresh and creative Sushi. I have traveled all over the world and have eaten at Nobu in Las Vegas, NYC and L.A. and had Fresh Sushi in Tokyo, Umi could be in any of those cities and I would go. They have many other fantastic dishes, an amazing Mushroom Dumpling Soup and Gorgeous Bento Boxes... More

We have eaten at Umi several times in the past three years. The service is always excellent and we enjoy the food. Judging from the cars in the parking lot this place is frequently full, so I would recommend reservations.

Had lunch here and everyone at the table had the Bento Box. It comes with a choice of salad with ginger dressing or soup. I chose the salad and it was was fresh and crisp. My Bento was the steak option and it was very tender. The other diners had salmon, chicken and fish - all tasty. The service was... More
