We visited Umi while in Florence AL. We sat at the hibachi and the food was excellent. However, was disappointed that the chef did not put on a "show" as is normally custom at the hibachi. I will say the best thing we had was a sushi roll called the Yellow Dragon with mango on top. AWESOME!

They have always been one of the top restaurants that I have ever been to for sushi! The shrimp tempura roll is my very favorite!!!

We arrived at 2 pm and had lunch. They charged dinner prices! They don't have a time on the menu or anywhere! We had paper napkins. When we were leaving, they were putting out the cloth napkins. Overpriced for the lunch we had.

I was a bit skeptical of eating here because the building where this restaurant is has changed hands several times over the last several years and I wasn't sure how it was going to be. My son wanted to go to a hibachi grill for his birthday so we decided to try it. I had heard nothing but good things... More

If you ever come here and you like sushi you have to try the Auburn roll. My wife had never had sushi and I talked her into trying this roll. Now she orders it every time we come here.

Food was delicious. Alcoholic drinks were watered down. Nice cozy environment. Would go back but won't waste my money on alcohol there

A group of co-workers and I ate here last week. I ordered the filet and shrimp hibachi dinner and a volcano roll. Everything was delicious and the cook and wait staff were very friendly and hospitable! I will definitely be dining here again soon!

While visiting the Florence area for only the second time, we decided to check out this local sushi and Japanese restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with how good/fresh the sushi was and can't wait to go back to try the Hibachi! The service was as good as it gets as well!

Thank Joshiev
