Good Food and lively atmosphere

fairly new basement restaurant and bar next to the Hyatt on Gervais St. All items were pretty good - not fantastic but as good as any other Japanese in town . The portions are not huge but we left satisfied.Service wasn't top notch but that was due to large crowd rather than inattentiveness .

The king street roll was fantastic but the first time i tried it, it had flaming hot peppers in the middle of one. should've asked for spicy mayo only. The bartender i usually always run into here, has a d tattooed on his throat. Well it must stand for dou*he bag because he's always mad and growling any other time... More

Went to Saki Tumi while in Columbia and chose it completely based on the name - we really liked the sushi, and were there when martinis and speciality drinks were half off, so we enjoyed those too! The fish was so fresh, and the rolls were unique - especially enjoyed the naked roll, but weren't disappointed by any of them.... More

This is by far one another one of my favorite places in Columbia! The owner, Dave, is a wonderful person who makes sure that his staff is taking care of you! Drinks are fantastic, sushi is innovative and they are always coming up with creative events for the weekend/late night crowd.

we went here with the two gals and a fork tour and had saki, a slice of seared tuna, a roll, and some beef. I wish we had stayed for more! Next time I am in Columbia I will definitley go back for a full meal!

We made the error of going to Columbia without a reservation during restaurant week. Oops! After getting turned away from a couple of places, we went to Saki Tumi because they had some tables with little wait and the menu looked not bad. We waited in the bar area for a few minutes. I was a little disappointed in my... More

Great sushi spot. Different taste and choices. Great service, and fresh taste. We sat at the sushi bar and watched our dinner made before our eyes. Pretty busy on a Friday night with all the other choices.

I eat hear almost every time I am in town. Great food and a reasonable price. Very good service as well. Parking is located in the back of the restaurant. We have been here for business dinners also as they can accommodate larger groups (big tables)

The food and drinks were good. The only thing that would make it better is if the portions were a little bigger for the money.

I'm not a huge sushi eater so I had some cooked rolls which were really good. I LOVED the crab and avocado salad! It was delicious. Also love the edamame and crab cakes. Great food, good service, and the atmosphere is fun.
