The sushi is as good as you can expect for a lunch prices at $12.50 for rolls, miso and salad. No need to look anywhere else for a quick sushi lunch!

The place itself is not fancy and somehow old, i was worried at first but quickly all that changed, our waiter was so friendly and funny he recommended to us great Makis & sushi. They serve a wide selection of delicious sushi. Prices are somehow fair. Recommend to all (photos attached)

We visited the Umi Sushi location on 56th st. during our long weekend vacation to NY. We had already enjoyed an expensive meal the night before and were craving some sushi, but didn't want to spend $150. Umi Sushi was perfect. I'm no sushi expert but I was very satisfied with my Sushi combination with tuna roll. My girlfriend was... More

There are so many sushi restaurants in NYC but this one had good reviews so we gave it a shot. It was delicious! It looks tiny from the outside but it opens up in the back so it is actually a pretty decent size. The menu is quite large and everything we had was delicious. Our favorite was the shrimp... More

This Japanese Restaurant on a quiet neighborhood of East 56th Street is definitely one of NYC's best Japanese Restaurants offering great Japanese food and sushi. It offers a wide range of selections. Everything I've had here is consistently delish and very fresh! Plus, Tom the manager, (also one of the sushi chefs) will try his best to accommodate your dietary... More

We had lunch there and it was great. They prepare the sushi in front of you and the prices are OK. We will definitely go there again.

We had a great lunch (12.5$ for 3 rolls and salad) and a tiger roll (another 15.5$). The tiger roll was well worth rhe money - the enitre meal was very well made and the fish tasted very fresh. Recommended!

Amazing sushi. We came here with great expectations from trip advisor. It didn't fail us. At first looked very small but the restaurant was very long and skinny. Sushi was amazing. We had about 6 different rolls. Each one was fresh and tasty. Definitely the best sushi I have ever had. Highly recommend

We sat at the counter and watched the four chefs create sushi. It was a great small dinner after a long day. The Salmon Sashimi was fresh and tasted great. My personal favourite roll was spicy scallop roll. There was a wide range of types of sushi.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
