Umi offers a wonderful taste of the Orient on north Main

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.

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.

I had sushi (very good) & my husband had one of the box dinners which had a lot of food on it. He also enjoyed his meal. You need to make reservations if you dine after 6:00 pm. This place was very busy.

Not noisy! That's a plus for me when I'm meeting friends or colleagues. Their food is excellent with beautiful presentation. Wait staff is speedy and courteous, plus the place just looks and feels good.

Every time we're in Hendersonville we make sure to have dinner at Umi. Since our first visit in 2010 we have never had a bad meal. The service is good, the food very good. We love hamachi and we get it at Umi. From the salads to the sashimi, everything is fresh and tasty. On our last visit we sat... More

Whenever we are in Hendersonville, we head to Umi. Who knew? great sushi in the Carolina mountains. This time we tried some of the non-sushi appetizers on the menu along with a couple of the sushi rolls du jour. If you like oysters, don't miss the oyster shooters. Like most good Japanese restaurants, this one is not cheap. But you... More

Red thai curry sauce is very light compared to heavier versions at some Thai restaurants. It also has steamed veggies! Perfect dish if you love red thai curry but are trying to watch what you eat. Great lunch for a productive afternoon.

Over the years, my wife and I have have become Sushi connoisseurs. We have been to many Japanese restaurants and had our fair share of disappointments. Umi offered a fantastic meal with very friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. We were never left wanting anything during our visits. The food was beautiful and delicious. The first night we were there, Umi... More
