Some of the best sushi I've had

Thoroughly enjoyed my meal here at happy hour. Was able to get the happy hour deal where my 8 pieces of shrimp tempura sushi rolls were less than $7. Food was fresh and tasty. Service was decent at the bar.

We were in Seattle on holidays and some friends got us here. In Umi Shake have a wonderful and amazing sushi The presentation was really beautiful, and the service was fast and very kind. Before visiting this place we did not know for sure if we liked sushi or not, now we love it. Really nice place, very recommendable

I'm a big fan of sushi and this has to be one of the best. Went with a few friends and we shared various rolls including some of their special rolls. They live in Seattle and I was visiting. This was their favorite sushi restaurant and one of the folks working at Belltown Inn mentioned it as well during a... More

The service was great - they do not take reservations and rightly so. They start at 4 in the evening and are open until 2 AM. There is plenty of space, for a restaurant in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood.

Umi's menu is top notch-has really interesting and palatable dishes for all sushi taste buds. We ordered two sashimi plates (tuna belly is a must!) and a two rolls (Moonraker roll was incredible-loved it!) and a seaweed salad to share and it was all delicious. I am usually not a fan of rolls, but the spicy rolls we had were... More

Great sashimi from the salmon trio to the Japanese: snapper, sea bass, 2 types of mackerel and finally the tuna belly. Great saké selection, too.

Came with 2 friends and really enjoyed our drinks and sushi. Had a dirty martini at the bar while waiting for a table (we turned up without reservations on a Saturday night) and it was good - nicely mixed and $8 - not too bad for this area. My friend had a Moscow mule ($9) and also enjoyed it. However... More

Amazing sushi!!! We were here for happy hour and got great deal on the sashimi. The favorite though was the Mona Lisa roll which was on the regular menu but so worth it!

Let me level set: I made reservations for Friday night, there was a group of 7 who just wanted to relax and have some good sushi and good cocktails….
