This is my favourite sushi restaurant in town. The quality of the food and service is always excellent. The place is usually packed but I've always managed to get seats for two persons in the bar. For bigger parties would definitely recommend booking in advance. Try the wakame salad and the grilled hamachi nigiri.

The sushi was great! The service was fast and friendly, and the atmosphere is nice but nothing special. Pricing is on the mark. Highly recommended!

Umeshu is built upon the simplicity of traditional sushi. Do not expect to see American style rolls overflowing with everything. Sushi here succeeds with a variety of great quality ingredients and traditional presentation. Few places in Helsinki can put 10 different types of nigiri on your plate and still have some to spare. They also serve a small variety of... More

Small but clean sushi restaurant quite near Helsinki centre. Very kind personnel, fantastic freshly made sushi. In fact, best sushi I have ever eaten: so fresh and so tasty! My recommendation: try assortments!

This sushi restaurant is simply brilliant. It is tucked away in a residential area, away from Helsinki centre, but it is definitely worth seeking it out if you love good, freshly made sushi. Service was great aswell. I will be back next time I am in Helsinki. Eat here!!

Best by far, excellent food everytime I´ve visited. Umeshu has reasonable prices and that´s why you should book an own table early enough.

Great real japanese athmosphere, nice personel and fantastic sushi. All in all ,defenately best sushi in Finland. Small restaurant, but clean and enought space. Cosy and trendy. A bit noisy , if there is a person talking louder voice, everybody can hear what you are talking. But when you get the fress and taisty sushi, you forget everything else.

Umeshu offers a great variety of Japanese food, so it is not just sushi. I really love their gyozas, dumpligs that you can have either steamed or fried. Also their sushi is always fresh and well presented. The service is good too.
