The waitress told us the owners of this restaurant aren't Japanese. Neither are most of the patrons. But you wouldn't guess it from the food. The best Japanese cuisine I've tasted in either Carolina, even around my hometown where there is a sizable community of folk who know how. The generous servings are almost overlarge. A dinner Bento is a... More

This is my third dinner at Umi, and it's safe to say this is the best sushi around. I no longer eat sushi here in Atlanta, as Umi in Hendersonville, NC can't be beat. Whenever I get the urge for sushi, I will make the three hour trip to North Carolina. The Superman, Godzilla and Geisha roll are amazing. Umi... More

I love this place! Without a doubt, it offers some of the best restaurant food in Hendersonville. The sushi and sashimi are fresh and delicious. For those who don't eat raw fish, there are many cooked fish sushi specials, as well as a lot of other choices- tempura, etc. The dining room is warm and cozy and I, especially, love... More

Do try their Bento box. Wow, what a great package. Great atmosphere. And their sushi and rolls are top notch.

We have ordered from UMI several times and have never been disappointed. The only problem is being careful not to order too much. It all tastes so good, that you will wish you could more. We will be going back.

The waiter recommend the chef specialty beef and it was awesome. I also enjoyed the sunset cold appetizer wrapped in rice paper. Total bliss. Highly recommend.

We don't usually eat Japanese food, and never sushi. We went for lunch today & enjoyed it. The décor is really fine. Very much enjoyed the shrimp tempura. A great place to get something different. The main dish came with some interesting sides, and the servings were large.

Were in the mood for Japanese food, and had read about this restaurant. But, never expected the food to be this delicious. I tried a bento box; didn't really know what it was, but sounded interesting enough to try. My husband had the shrimp tempura. Must say both dishes were way beyond our expectations. I recommend you plan on an... More

This was a great experience my friends and I gave Umi a try with all the great reviews. We love sushi it did not disappoint. Service was friendly and the sushi was great, We tried a variety of items and enjoyed them all. Atlanta has some great sushi joints but umi is right up there with the big city.
