We enjoyed the food and the kindness of the staff. Sushi was very good and sashimi incredible. Miso soup average. The price is correct. I think it worth it to give a try.

We moved right next door and couldn't be happier. The food is fabulous and goes beyond sushi. My son loves the tonaktsu and the ramen. We have had their lunch deals too and it is amazing value for money. Service is friendly, pleasant and efficient....More

We had a Sushi platter for two and it was freshly made, quite big and really delicious. Price was around USD 50 which I think is great value for good price. Drinks were quite cheap. Again!

The reviews don't do this place justice. If I could give 6 starts I would. Great food, some of the best I've ever had. Great atmosphere and service. I'll come back as many times as I can while in NYC. Thank you guys!

I love Umi. The sushi is always fresh, high-quality, and reasonably priced. I get take out and dine in. It's a narrow space, but goes fairly far back. Sitting at the sushi bar is always great, too. Highly recommend to anyone looking for good sushi...More

I visited for the first time (E 31st St location) as I was staying nearby. What a find! Inexpensive, excellent quality (the sashimi was melt-in-the-mouth) and charming service. I will go back to try out their bento box meals which looked really interesting. Agedashi tofu...More
