Each time we visit NYC, we try new restaurants and also have a meal at Umi. The fish is fresh and the makis are creative and varied. As I maintain my dream of living in NYC, I imagine that this would be my regular sushi haunt.

Lovely gem hidden on 31st St. where the service was superb, with friendly and knowledgeable staff who explained the menu and were aware of which items contained gluten (my wife and I both being gluten intolerant). The food was prepared quickly, and was presented in a beautiful manner. The freshness and simplicity of the food was delicious! We cannot wait... More

Service is superb although the place might look a little chubby. Food, of course, was good as well! There is more space than it looks like from the street - there are extra rooms with tables behind the bar.

We enjoyed every mouthful of sushi in this lovely little restaurant. The staff were friendly and attentive. Don't be put off by the entrance it looks a little like a take away you'd find on a dodgy street in the UK but beyond that is a lovely clean and quite atmosphere to eat in. We were slightly over faced on... More

Small Japanese restaurant at the 31th street. Nice and very fresh sushi. For a good price as well! Recommended. Friendly staff.

Good food and service, but was a little on the expensive side considering what we ate... The booking process was simple and service was very attentive and polite.

This is about Umi Sushi on East 31st. A good place, perfect service, excellent food, just like it should. It is also cheap. We sat outdoors, in the small backyard, very pleasant. Recommended.

Very fresh fish and efficient service. Everything everyone else has said is true! Many options on the menu but settled on a mermaid roll and a good, reasonable prices sake. Small intimate and a good vibe with mix of students, families and singles. Not too loud and feels like a great neighborhood place.

the server was courteous and friendly and takes care of the customer's needs. full marks for that. but i cant say the same for the food. but it is a good place to fill your tummy, but to be aroused gastronomically, better to go somewhere else

If you like Sushi and are in NY, Umi Sushi is a MUST! I went there on my honey moon on May 2013 and had a great time. Very tasty and affordable! Great place to go!
