This is the place in Hendersonville if you enjoy Sushi. It is the best. They do have a good selection of other dishes. I guess I would call Japanese. I have been there for the Sushi but other guests have enjoyed the other selections on the menu.

The truth is I'm not wild about sushi or seafood and Umi is famous for theirs. So this is a review once removed. My wife Terri loves both of the above and her experience at Umi was fabulous. She love the service, the surrounding and most of all the food. She will go back as often as the budget allow!.

We ordered a combination plate and it came on the most impressive handmade wooden "boat!" So artfully displayed, and the entire table agreed the sushi was top-notch.

Great atmosphere and some of the best sushi in WNC. We couldn't find parking in their lot but at least parking is free in downtown Hendersonville after 6pm. The Sumo roll is delicious!

If you love Japanese food, you have to eat here. Absolutely phenomenal cuisine and the service was great too! Our waitress was Mary Anne, ask for her. Parking is a little difficult but well worth the effort.

It's easy to blow the budget here! Best time to go is lunch. They have a lunch box deal for around $10. You can get just sushi or the combo. Salad or soup is included with both. Great food. Never been disappointed

After relocating to the area and trying to find the best possible sushi in the south, I believe that we need to just stick to southern food. Both of our entrees were wrong. The food was acceptable but not outstanding. Restaurant was nicely done but service was not up to par. When asked if everything was alright, management came over... More

This is a nice attempt to bring variety to the downtown offerings of restaurants. The Japanese menu has a nice variety however, the portions are small. This is a place better suited for a lite bite.

I have been a regular customer here since they first opened. The food is always excellent and sushi is great. They are open for lunch and dinner. The owner is a frequent presence. Presentation wonderful.

This place is great! The price is worth it. Great food- quiet atmosphere. Fine dinning. Umi has a couple signature rolls... My favorite is the Superman Roll followed by the Godzilla Roll! The sushi is always fresh! I've never had a bad experience here!
