“Sushi in the Blue Ridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Some of the finest food Hendersonville has to offer. From excellent, first grade Sushi to a wide menu of spicy or cold appetizers, tempura, bento, teriyaki and fantastic sea bass grilled or steamed, mmm!

“Reliable favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Umi is one of our old reliable favorites for very good Japanese food, though it is operated by Chinese. The menu ranges from the usual tempura/teriyaki/sushi/sashimi up to sea bass and lobster. There are even some Thai curries, which are very tasty but can be spicy hot even in the mild version. Presentation is attractive and often outstanding. Prices are moderate and service is generally good but can be variable; there seems to be a bit of turnover in the wait staff. My wife and I look forward to having lunch here about twice a month.

“Bento box is the best lunch in town, enough to share & good price too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is one of our favorite restaurants in H'ville, and today's Bento box was such a treat! We shared a takeout bento salmon terryaki...as usual the salmon was perfectly cooked, the sauce great, and everything in the box tasty. You can now order online so it will be ready when you pick it up! For little more than the price of two fast food lunches, you can dine! We also enjoy going to the restaurant, which has calming decor and lovely service.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Loved the place, very nicely decorated and clean.
The food was great. Well presented and tasty. One of the best miso soups and Tuna tataki's I've tried.
The service was great and friendly.
Prices are very affordable, about $45 for 2 people (no alcohol).
Would take my sushi loving friends and family there.
