VERY pleasantly surprised

We were in Fredericksburg for a few days, and felt like sushi one night. A friend recommended Umi, and we dropped in expecting a long wait for food. Turned out that not only did it arrive really fast, it was really good. On top of that, they serve brown rice upon request in the sushi. Prices were... read more

i grew up in Japan, so am very aware of culture and diet... this is americanized Japanese food, not very true to home... few natural flavors, spicing can be overwhelming. definitely not for my palate. quite pricey as well.

My daughter had been after me for a long time to try sushi and with enough prodding she got me to Umi's. Now I crave their Crab Roll and Superman Roll on a weekly bases. We now have mother daughter dinner at least once a week and so far nothing can beat either roll however the vegetable fried rice and... More

I eat here on a fairly regular basis...about every other month. Have taken out-of-town friends here twice in the past two months. Attached pics are from our visit in January. We dined on a Saturday in the late afternoon. I deviated from my usual Bento box and tried the shrimp tempura entree. Loved it! My friend had sushi and said... More

We have visited Umi in Stafford, every visit has been great. Nevertheless, none of the staff is Japanese, they are from China. The owners, Sony & Jasper, continue a trend in restaurants opening , Chinese entrepreneurs expanding beyond the traditional Chinese restaurant. Reading the reviews, it is a disappointment that reviewers cannot correctly identify the ethnicity of the owners &... More

It has been awhile since we were here are first time. I told my wife this evening that I believe we have finally found a place that we can go to on a regular monthly basis. We are local so it's only about 10 minutes from our house. The food is outstanding, the service is great, the music in low... More

The food is wonderful. Have been several times and the food is awesome each time. This last time went with a party of 10 so was able to try several things. I highly recommend the cabbage salad the superman and Megan rolls and the tuna susxhi to name a few

Umi has never let me down! Their food, sushi in particular, is always on point. Great value for the quality and portions. Friendly staff. Couldn't ask for more!

I am not sure why some of the reviews here are talking about a restaurant in Stafford, but this is definitely in the middle of Fredericksburg. We came on a recommendation from a local, and boy are we glad we did! The Japanese food was excellent! I had a Bento box because I love the variety offered. My dining companions... More

The Umi Japanese restaurant in Stafford, off of Garrisonville Rd, is an excellent example of Japanese style dining. This is a new restaurant, not the one in Fredericksburg, it is in the same building that Marlin & Rays Seafood restaurant was previously located. The food here is excellent and the wait staff very gracious. There are real Japanese people working... More
