Outstanding experience

For starters the best spicy crab salad in town followed by tuna spoons that melt in your mouth. If you try the specials you get a flavor of the mood the Chief has today but, be even more adventurous and ask Jonathan or Sony to suprise you and you won't be disapointed. You will love sushi if you... read more

It was ok. I wasn't impressed by the food, and the staff seemed to hover over us... not really taking care of anything (dishes, drinks, etc) just standing there watching us. It was a little uncomfortable...

My wife and I were up fredericksburg for a extended weekend trip, and being how we both love sushi we decided to give Umi a try. The staff was very polite and friendly and very helpful with the menu as some names of sushi were unfamiliar to us cause we have found each Sushi restaurant has their own names and... More

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 very reasonable as... 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.

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
