Eating sushi in NYC it was definitely one of my wishes. We found Umi Sushi thru Tripadvisor and it was an amazing experience. It's a small and quite place, close to downtown, so we walk thru NYC street. The food was EXCELLENT. We ordered a plate of sashimis and niguiris and two types of sushis (I don't remember the names).... More

I would like the rolls a little harder, they were rather soft as melting in your mouth. The Ikuras are perfect.

We frequent the East 56th Street location. Their sushi is well prepared, never cold as if just off the ice, and the portions are ample. We also have enjoyed their tempura and other hot dishes which are also well prepared. They deliver in the neighborhood and seem to be very busy in that part of their business. Wine, beer and...

Good sushi (I had the Umi Roll, a tuna sashimi and eel sushi) to a reasonable price. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Definitely worth the price, and a good choice when you want sushi in Midtown!

I stopped here for lunch during a recent business trip based on all the amazing reviews. Maybe my expectations were too high but the food was ok but nothing amazing. I tried a sampling of sushi , sashimi , and a chef's roll. And I thought the same about all of my meal -- it was ok but I wouldn't... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
