Great Food

Very fresh and good quality food. Fast and friendly service. Location is on Main Street. It is fun to sit at the bar and watch them make sushi.

My favorite place for sushi in our town. We go there for lunch at least 3 times a month. Popular for the locals and always impeccable service

Nice selection of food in the Japanese style. But this is not a place where the food is cooked in front of you. No show, just good food.

The food is wonderful. They have lots of sushi items. A little expensive but worth it. I usually order something other than sushi and it is great.

This used to be the only place locally that I would go to and eat sushi. I haven't been in a couple of months. I went sat at the sushi bar, and ordered my food. I understand people get sick, so I only will leave this as a small part. Every chef was sniffling and sneezing. The biggest thing was... More

Used to eat sushi here before Champa. Food is just OK. Their bar is awful. Worst martinis I ever had. Rolls OK but just down the street is Champa and you'd be better off spending you $$$ there for better food.

I've only had sushi so far and I'd say it's pretty good. Good enough to go back a second time. They don't serve what's called "regular" sushi in New York. Also, the tamago, or egg sushi, isn't prepared well, but it's OK. Prices aren't bad, service is good and ambience is good. And it has parking. Worth a visit.

We finally went to Umi last month, and were really looking forward to it based on all the good reviews. Upon entering the restaurant, we were surprised by the lack of artistry in the decor; it could be so much nicer! And the second disappointment was that we had a waitress who was really terrible. Very low-class and not at... More

Recent evening meal with friends reaffirmed mt recollection that Umi is one of the consistently worthy eateries in Hendersonville. The location is handy for an after dinner stroll down Main Street. The ambience is comfortable and only moderately Asian. The menu is unusual but with authentic Japanese dishes plus a well stocked sushi counter. Service is prompt, wine selection adequate,... More
