Excellent experience! They have a great menu and a fun dining environment. I've tried just about everything on the menu. Great food, great drinks, great people.

A bit too dark, a bit too rowdy for our taste, but for some it's probably fabulous. I think the name tells you it's more for fun than for serious dining.

All I have to say about this place is that the fact that one of the owners was back there and hand rolling the sushi was great...Truly love the small business that have owners who really do care...food was great and the drinks were ok...found out that sake is not my thing...live and learn

Hanging out with friends is great but hanging with friends at SakiTumi is the bomb! Great selection of sushi and grilled meals...and the sake is out of this world. Try 1/2 price sake on Saturday. Wells was our server and he made our evening the BEST! Hands down the absolute best. These guys really know their stuff!

I admit that I'm not much of a sushi fan but we stopped here on a food tour and everything I tasted was delicious. That included a sushi roll, seared tuna, and pomegranate saki.

Their sign is on the main street but the restaurant is down a short side street. The rice/chicken hibachi was wonderful. Had one of the best reduction sauces we've ever eaten.

Went with my friends one time and it was REALLY busy (which is good) and although it took a while for our sushi to get out, it was well worth it. Get some sake with your food for an even more enjoyable experience. Would try it on a less busy night!

Best sushi in Columbia. You can not find fish fresher than here. Also they have some of the best drink and food specials around, definitely check their website before you visit to see what the deals are.

Head here if you want good sushi in a great atmosphere. Not your typical Japanese décor, this is a hip converted warehouse with a small bar area and lots of tables.

The Hellfire roll was best sushi I have ever had! The jalapeño on top was the best addition! Great local younger feel with good food
