I feel like in a river somewhere, some tuna is saying "When it's my time, just serve me up at Umai" it's that good. I have the menu memorized we order from there all the time. Sushi is my treat food. I get good grades, sushi, I keep up my excise for a month, sushi, It's my birthday, sushi. If you can't tell, sushi is my favourite food. I've had it in Chicago, Toronto, and even Vancouver, and Umai is still hands down my favourite. The sashimi is always a great portion, the dynamite roll is heaven on my tongue. I always get the lunch combo of 2 maki, which are Dynamite and salmon, and order salmon sashimi on the side.
Also best miso soup in town. Was better when they opened, but still amazing, the staff is always super helpful and nice, and their specialty rolls are great. My birthday is in 2 months and I CAN'T WAIT!!!! I have been loyal to this restaurant for years, I have done my sushi research on how to tell good fish from bad, and they always come up on top. And to the guy who got frozen fish, Iced tuna is (or at least was) one of their items, so you sure that wasn't what you ordered?
But anyways, if you want good sushi, go to Umai, It is perfectly priced if you ask me, because I've found places that cost a lot more and do a lot worse.
Also, on my last birthday, my mom not so subtly hinted that it was my birthday, and they gave me a free ginger ice cream! LOVE!
