Bento Box Sampler

Bento boxes allow you to sample their teriyaki and tempura fare with a California roll to boot. The food was very good but not mind-blowing. Umi makes for a fun evening out.

I ate here with my brother in Oct 2013. We could not believe how good it was. Both of us are quite travelled, and very selective about what constitutes good food. We were both shocked and pleased at the quality of both food and service right here in Hville. We Ate sushi, sashimi, anoodle dish and we drank sake and... More

Our waiter was very willing and able to help us order. We trusted him, and he did an excellent job. The food was amazing

We love Umi, we go every time we are in Hendersonville. From the sushi, cocktails to the great staff. This restaurant has a great atmosphere, indoor and outdoor seating. Would highly recommend.

Fairly bland... food was luke warm. Skip the Thai dishes... it is Japanese after all. The sushi looked pretty good and if we were to return we'd go that way.

My wife and I are seasonal residents of Hendersonville and in the summer have lunch here at least every other week, sometimes once a week. Restaurants in any city tend to come and go, so when we return in late spring or early summer we are holding our breaths and hoping that Umi will still be here. Fortunately, Umi continues... More

The menu offers quite a variety. I ordered a "box meal" (it did not come in a box) that had steak, shrimp, and scallops... I did not think the scallops would be the best, but they certainly were - sweet and tender - the best I can remember in a looong time. The seafood salad was also very good,, I... More

Umi is our date night experience! We go for romance and sushi! Occasionally we will stop in for lunch and business meetings! Excellent!

Friends from Florida came to visit, and wanted to try Umi, which we had not yet experienced, as Japanese food isn't typically among our favorites. We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful offerings they had for appetizers, and the delicious and unique main courses they provide. The service is excellent, the prices reasonable, and the experience quite pleasant.

They offer quick and friendly service and fresh sushi. The lunch menu offers bento boxes as well as sushi. The restaurant is clean and bright and very modern. They also offer outdoor dining.
