My partner and I were visiting Richmond and decided to visit Umi for dinner When we arrived we were promptly greeted and offered a seat, we wanted a booth but were told they 4 open weren't available. We decided to stay and eat and the booths remained empty throughout our meal. The sushi is bland tasteless and wont hold its... More

Tiny sashimi pieces at high prices served with a bad attitude. The decor looked promising but the overall experience was terrible. Drive on to somewhere else.

I'd give the restaurant appearance and staff 5/5; the place has a fun sleek atmosphere with upholstered low-back arm chairs and a great design/layout. It must've been staff training night because there were a ton of servers bouncing around and they were very personable. As for the food, there is potential but it's a solid 3/5 at this point. Ordered... More

I've been to this restaurant for many times and am always totally satisfied with quality, freshness of the fish, appearance and service. This restaurant can easily compete with high quality restaurants in the big cities around the world. Their lunch menu is also great and not expensive. There is a large choice of sushi, sashimi, maki as well as different... More

Last night was the first time my husband and I have been to Umi since it reopened (it was closed for renovations after a fire). We ordered Tuna Tar Tar, a house salad, a Tropical Roll, various hand rolls and an order of Fatty Tuna and Fatty Salmon (Sashimi-style). Everything was very fresh and the presentation was impressive. I would... More

Different options, beautiful presentation, and delicious. Has more of a modern decor, can fit large groups but is also good for couples.

We eat at Umi at least once a week. The food is always great, in taste as well as in it's presentation. The owner makes you feel alway welcome and part of the patrons family.

A surprising urban and "not strip mall" feel welcomes you. Service was personal, prompt, and very pleasant. We had lunch specials that included the spider roll, the dr. roll, the avocado roll, and spicy crunchy tuna roll. All of them were excellent, but we particularly likes the spider and avocado rolls. The price was higher than expected for a strip... More

This place is conveniently located across the street from Short Pump Town Center. The food quality and service are excellent and the fish is always extremely fresh. This is simply the best sushi/sashimi restaurant in Richmond!

The decor, the fresh and inventive rolls, the convenient location all make this a win for a business lunch when I'm in sprawling short pump.
