The experience is neat, however the food was lacking as well as overall cleanliness. Flies, dirty floors, etc.

I did not think our experience was that great. Food was average, nothing to brag about. Facility needs some type of upgrade. Don't think it rates a Top 100 restaurant rating.Server very nice. I

We went without reservations with a party of 15. We were seated promptly! But then there was a long wait before our chef came out. Once he was there the food was great and so was the hibachi chef! He did a great job!

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
