My husband found Umi Sushi via reviews on our last trip to NYC. We both love sushi & were not disappointed! The restaurant was packed, and it's a tiny place! We were taken to a dining area at the back of the restaurant which was full, but not uncomfortably so. The service was great and the food was fantastic. The... More

Our granddaughter is very picky about food but she loves sushi and sashimi so we tried out Umi Sushi on our latest trip to NYC. It was fabulous! All the food was delicious and the presentation was so beautiful it seemed a shame to disturb it, but we demolished all the dishes with glee. Our server was delightful. The whole... More

I wouldn't recommend the E56 th St Umi Sushi. I ordered the sushi sashimi combination plate, whilst the sushi was good the sashimi was disappointing. The Tuna was flavourless and flabby. Not a great experience.

Best sushi and sashimi that I ever had and price was very reasonable. The restaurant is very small but if you get their early you should not have a problem getting a table. The fish was very fresh and well presented. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody that likes sushi. I will definitely be coming back next time i'm... More

The food and service at Umi are outstanding. We visited the 56th Street location and our waitress Ming was excellent and fun. It is hard to believe that you can have such a quality meal at such a great price in New York. We highly recommend it.

Don't be fooled by the outside, don't hesitate go inside and order the combo for 2. Great sushi and sashimi at fair price!

When standing outside Umi Sushi at 31st street my girlfriend was a little hesitant to enter as the looks from the outside didn't show a great restaurant. But oh boy were we glad that I talked her into joining me inside, because this was the best sushi we have eaten in a long while. Great service with explanation of the... More
