Everything was delicious, but don’t be surprised by prices, it is Winter Park. For a full meal get the Shrimp Tempura. You get your fish and vegetables for just $12. We also recommend the Truffle salt edamame for just $8.50 a very good deal.

A nice sushi restaurant along the main drag in Winter Park. They have a solid menu with Japanese dishes and sushi and sashimi. We only had sushi. While generally sushi revolves around seafood, their most impressive roll was the PBR, which incorporates pork belly, asparagus...More

The seating, service and ambience are fine. The food is expensive, sold and presented with a flair that, while appealing, could not overcome a kind of predictable flavor. We ordered a chef's special salmon (good, moist, pricey) and tempura (average), with a good beer and...More

Description
Umi offers a unique twist to the traditional Japanese cuisine in Central Florida. Every menu item is prepared by using meticulous methods starting from the preparation down to the execution. The dishes express refinement and art in the chefs final presentation to you. Locals and world travelers alike are treated to a dining experience to share small plates cooked from the robata grill, kitchen and the sushi bar, or dive into our Signature sushi rolls and Moriawase platters. You'll find Japanese, Korean and European flavors in our food and in the masterly crafted desserts that are a hit amongst locals. Navigate to our online menu and come in to see and taste for yourself! Chef de Cuisine César Cruz and Head Sushi Chef John Park select only the finest and freshest produce, seafood and meats sourced locally and from around the world, insuring that each handmade dish is prepared just for you. Are you a world traveler and love artwork? The restaurant walls are lined with authentic Japanese artwork from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries used for decoration. Japanese screens, woodblock prints, masks, tables/stands, ceramics and wood carvings are just a few of the things you will spot while dining.
