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!

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
