Great Sushi

This spot is in a very cool part of town (near Vandy) near great bars, a theater, shops, and other restaurants offering live music. I've had better gyoza, but my rainbow roll and Nicole's crab rangoon roll were fantastic. Start with the edamame. DON'T ORDER THE CENTENNIAL IPA! $7.50 for a pint... read more

Stopped in for a quick bite before a movie at the Belcourt. Creative looking cocktails (did not try) and large outdoor patio. Would go back for drinks only. Clearly aimed at college kids who don't know any better yet. "Kimchi" fried rice has nearly no kimchi, what was there wasn't particularly tasty or spicy. I got the shrimp added, they... More

We dropped in on a mid-afternoon on a Sunday. If you haven't been to Zumi in a while, as we hadn't, it's changed from when it first opened, when it was, as we recalled, a kind of sushi cafeteria. It's now a sit-down place with an outdoor porch, in an old house near Vanderbilt and in the Hillsboro Village area.... More

We like Zumi because it has many small plates that are easy to share. We make a meal of three or four appetizers. Good service, reasonable prices, and nice location make Zumi a fun evening. I like the poke-tini-- poke with wonton chip

Some of the best sushi we've found in Nashville. Great ambiance, great service, and fantastic food. Would definitely recommend.

I have friends who currently live in Nashville and said it was the best they have found with reasonable prices. Right of 21st street with nice shops. The atmosphere is casual and fun the Mainline Roll is Salmon and cream cheese got a soy wrap and crunch.

We visited this establishment with our 2 year old daughter, who befriended our very attentive and kind waiter. It was quite quiet for lunch on a weekday, but we saw a lot of people picking up for take-out. The atmosphere in the restaurant was quite funky and hip, but still welcoming, and not so cool to avoid taking a kid... More

Was there with two friends Saturday night; we were in town for the concert Friday and found this restaurant online. It is Fantastic. Food: delicious. Everything we ordered was exceptional, and the prices were less than expected. I highly recommend the sake flight! Service: I didn't get her name, but we loved our server that evening. She was working on... More

Food was okay, service very mediocre, and I'd have rather spent the same amount of money elsewhere. Setting is nice.
