Small Town Restaurant with Excellent Sushi

I work in downtown Hendersonville and go here often. It never disappoints. If you have not tasted their crunchy crab salad, you are missing out!

Umi's has great sushi but it's too pricey. We go maybe once a year as a treat because it's just too expensive. So many other great restaurants in Hendersonville to eat at that don't break the bank.

We went to Umi with two other couples to celebrate a birthday. We had reservations so although they were very crowded and busy, we were immediately seated. Our service was excellent. Our waitress, although very busy, was very attentive to our needs. The food was delicious and served quickly. We will definitely go back and take our out-of-town guests there!

We love to go to Umi. Everything we have tried is great. This was the first place we ever tried sushi and the staff were very helpful. The fried dumplings are delicious.

I took my daughter here for what was supposed to be a very nice dinner. I should have gone somewhere to fill up first. My entree was over $20 and wouldn't feed a hummingbird! Forget this place and go to Champa instead. The food is better and you will actually leave filled up. I will NOT return to Umi!

Good restaurants in Hendersonville are rarer than "hens teeth". Umi however is an oasis in the desert, good, fresh sushi And sashimi. Reasonably priced for this type of food. Service is variable depending upon which server you have, at times it can be difficult to get more tea at the sushi bar. Their green tea rakes second place to,a Thai... More

Umi is in my opinion the best sushi spot in all of WNC. The staff is incredible, the location is easily accessible, and the food is perfect. Umi is very reasonably priced and never disappoints, it's my favorite night out, always.

Great food with a large menu. All the food was very fresh. The restaurant is very modern and clean. Wait staff very pleasant. I would recommend this place to family and friends and will definitely return to try out different foods.

I was traveling alone to Hendersonville and wanted to try the Japanese restaurant I had heard so much about. But when I entered just before 7pm on a Thursday night I stood at the hostess counter and waited... And waited... Multiple servers and kitchen staff came past me, all avoiding eye contact, but no one came to meet me or... More

Umi is one of my go-to restaurants when I get the hankering for sushi. The food never disappoints. Great service, lovely ambiance. I recommend getting a sushi boat since there are so many awesome rolls to try. Thanks!
