“Umi - great sweet potato sushi!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

While visiting Hendersonville, my aunt took me to this wonderful sushi restaurant - it was outstanding and I will definately make this place a 'must do' anytime in the area. I had the veggie sushi - I chose the California roll and the Sweet Potato roll - they were both very tasty and delicious. I LOVED the Sweet Potato roll in particular - great flavor. The portions are more than enough - very nice atmosphere, great service all the way around. DO check out Umi when in Hendersonville or the vacinity!!

“Best sushi anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We go to umi any time we are in town, and now have moved back and go twice a week. As much as we have traveled, this is still the best sushi and sashimi ever.

“Not NY,SF,LA but Hendersonville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

Imagine finding outstanding sushi in a relatively small community that will surpass many sushi restaurants in New York, San Fran.,L.A. Some purists who travel to Japan might differ, however, Umi not only has terrific food, wonderfully presented, but a nice atmosphere and good service, all at reasonable prices.
There are always some disagreeable people no one can please and we only wish we had an Umi closer to where we live. Try there rolls!

“Best Japanese anywhere near Asheville!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We were happy to discover Umi, as we love Japanese but are very particular about quality sushi. Umi is a surprising find. The atmosphere is also quite good as well, and the service attentive. Will be making this a regular stop!

“Japanese in South Carolina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Friends made reservations for this restaurant for dinner following a play at Flat Rock. It was an excellent choice. I had a platter of assorted sashimi and sushi. All were excellent and the presentation matched the food. The rest of the party of eight had a wide variety of items from the menu and all were more than pleased.
Service was just a bit slow, it appeared understaffed for the volume.
An outdoor area was under construction at the time we were there, reducing the total seats available.
