I've been going to Sushi Umi since they first opened several years ago, and have eaten there over 50 times. They do take away as well and are very quick to prepare sushi. Very fresh, extremely knowledgeable Chef/Owner. They also have gluten free soy sauce, which surprisingly enough, several Ottawa Sushi places do not carry. Highly recommended!

It has been tough to find good sushi in Ottawa, but we will be looking no further now that we have found Sushi Umi. The menu is lengthy with both traditional options and other unique creations (think salmon, mango, cucumber, avocado, lemon and mushroom). The sushi was delivered quickly and everything was incredibly fresh. Our only predicament was not ordering... More

Been coming here for years off and on. Not the most beautiful place but delicious and great value. My kind of hole in the wall. Love it.

I wanted to give this place 5 stars but eld back because it is a little sad inside. The food though is remarkable and exotic! The chef always has unique specials that are consistently worth trying. Love the octopus!! They have take away so you can go home or to your hotel. It is the best sushi in the neighborhood... More

Not a great spot to go out for supper but it is excellent for lunch and takeaway. I've been a few times and it's consistently good and they are very friendly and the price is decent. It's not the very best sushi but it is very good and the price is very fair. Lots of choice. Definitely go here next... More

My wife and I come here semi-regularly, the food is fresh and the quality is good. We have had the salmon bento box, which is excellent, (my wife really enjoys the ginger dressing for the salad, so much so that we bought a jar to bring home), many types of sushi, sashimi and rolls, the miso soup and gyoza (which...

The sushi is yummy however it is a tad pricey for what I'm used to and the place is rather small. It's ideal to takeout.

So, let me preface this with the fact that the food was very good. The sashimi was excellent, the special dishes we ordered were delicious. I was charmed by the small space, and the busy-ness of people walking in for take out was a good sign that we were going to get decent fare. However, we will not be returning... More

I was looking for a good Japanese restaurant to visit in Ottawa when the reviews about this one called my attention. Well, it's a very tiny place, the kind of place that I would never enter if I hadn't read the reviews. Nothing fancy at all. But the good speaks for itself. The sushi was very very fresh and we'll...

I have to say that for Ottawa - this is far the best sushi I`ve have had. The fish is fresh and the use of top quality ingredients is very evident. I have only dined in a coupe of times, nothing fancy but the service is always friendly and prompt. I visit this place almost weekly - a Friday night... More
