Love the food, service and atmosphere. During each visit, I make sure to always come visit. The sushi is the best in Hendersonville in my opinion.

After living in Asia for a number of years, I was pleasantly surprised to find a great establishment like Umi just a few miles from home. When we're visited by my former business colleagues, who have done a similar Asian assignment, their first question is normally about our plans for a return visit to Umi! While we've tried their other... More

Umi is consistently good. We had a large group including a non-sushi eater. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

We were due to attend a wedding that day - a romantic event in a picturesque setting with a breakfast to follow - so we wanted a light meal. Sushi and Sashimi are good options in such cases and, since our friends are so well acquainted with Umi and visit regularly, we were happy to accept their recommendation. Our meal... More

Okay, so we have one Japanese sushi spot in downtown Hendersonville (other than the Thai place that has sushi). Umi is very nice and definitely is comfortable for guests who visit, although the tables are somewhat close together. The service is very good and the place is always so clean, you could eat your food off the floor (but I... More

It is hard to find good sushi in tr mountains of North Carolina but Umi was top notch! Creative rolls, great bento boxes nice wait staff... Only problem is that the sushi chefs don't coordinate their orders so in our party of five we were all served at different times. A bit annoying!

There is a reason Umi keeps getting nominated for one of the best restaurants in WNC (Western North Carolina) - the food and cocktails are outstanding. And yes, we're talking sushi and Japanese food in WNC! It's my go-to restaurant when I have out-of-town guests. Atmosphere is upbeat and sophisticated, but not stuffy; you can go there in jeans and... More

Our first visit was not fabulous. We had a terrible table and service to boot. We live in Hendersonville and decided to try again. I really wanted sushi and kept hearing how wonderful and fresh it was at Umi. Last Saturday we ventured there and it was everything I had been craving. The geisha roll on soy paper was amazing!...

The best tempura I've had since living in Japan. Great service and nice surroundings. We'd love to eat there again.
