Best Sushi in Hendersonville

We went as a family group of 10 people and had no problem getting a reservation or space (a Sunday evening). The service was great, the staff friendly and smiling. Some had the sushi (very good), and I had a Bento Box. I love the variety that comes with them (beef, shrimp, and scallops), along... read more

Our first visit to umi was mostly good. The place is attractive and service was fine. You get good value for your money. The food (3 kinds of bento boxes and miso salmon) was good but not on par with fine Japanese restaurants in larger cities like Atlanta. Parking is available but was full up on a Saturday night. Street... More

My favorite Japanese restaurant in all of Appalachia. The food and the service are top notch. Anytime we are within 50 miles of Hendersonville we somehow end up there. Must be a magnetic thing. I don't seem to have any control over it.

Great food at a great value. Love the Bento box which gives you taste of a few items at a reasonable price.

We were surprised to find a Japanese restaurant of this caliber in a small town like Hendersonville. The food is on par with sushi found in much larger cities like Atlanta. The service was attentive and sitting at the sushi bar watching the four (!) sushi chefs prepare the food was a real treat. Even though our visit to umi... More

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. We would certainly come back. Seems like a typical restaurant you'd expect to find in a big city. Shockingly good for Hendersonville.

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.
