Thank you for a great meal!
This was our first dinner there; we will definitely be back. The sushi/sashimi Little Tokyo combo was absolutely excellent; Sunday and Monday they have BYOB, which is a big plus. Overall, we really enjoyed the experience.

We went in March 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our first visit there. We will definitely be back, as all four of us really were impressed.

Fresh! Will definitely go back.
My wife and I started with the chuka ika (squid appetizer). This appetizer was fantastic! Kids got edamame and chicken gyoza. We also got the sashimi sampler. All the fish was extremely fresh. Pieces were good. Hwe dup bap was the main dish. Again the freshness of the fish made this dish. I should have asked for more gochuchang (hot sauce). The kids had bulgogi and tempura. The server forgot to bring the miso soup with the kids' meals. It wasn't missed. They both enjoyed their entrees. We went on a Sunday evening so things were pretty quiet. Also, it's ByOB on Sundays. Nice feature. Will definitely go back to try other Korean dishes.

The atmosphere is, potentially,
The atmosphere is, potentially, romantic, but at our recent Saturday night dinner, virtually every table was families, with children. We had our children with us, as well, but mine were older than most of the very young kids at most of the tables, and it was a bit noisy with "kid noise." I'm not sure why there were not more couples or adults-only tables there, although it was still fairly early in the evening. The sushi is good, and attractively presented, and the service was fine.

Impeccable Service Outstanding Food
Service was exceptional. We dined on a Saturday evening.
Food is delicious. We loved all the options of Japanese as well as Korean dishes. There is much to chose from and seems like a good mix. My wife loves sushi, I like it in spurts and like the option of other dishes outside tempura. Umami gives you many options. The portions are quite large so even though the price might seem high, you will have another meal in leftovers.

I was a little disappointed
I was a little disappointed when I had a coupon for 10% off when I signed up to be on their mailing list and they didn't honor it. They just said they ended that in April. I understand but there was no expiration date on my coupon and it's just good business to honor it. They have a small wine and sake list and they were out of the wine I usually get there. I'd still return for the sushi because its that good there.

Best Sushi Around
We have found what we feel are the best sushi specialty rolls around at Umami Umami. It's not inexpensive, but the food is awesome and worth it for a special occassion. The rolls are pretty big too. We've been there several times and every time we have enjoyed it. This time we had three items and all were great - The Tower, The Dresher Roll and The Black Dragon. The servers and hostess there are very nice also.

Testing out a new place
My husband and I wanted to check out this local sushi spot at the old inn near Dreshertown road. The place was lovely and the food beautifully prepared. It was a bit quieter than we expected for a Thursday evening but we came earlier than the full dinnertime rush. We enjoyed our time and felt the service was good, not overbearing or pushy in the slightest, but very accommodating and pleasant. We would certainly return, and with friends, especially for a nice evening out.

Good food average ambiance
Solid dishes both Japanese and Korean. Just a bit Spartan in decor. Not even background music

needed sushi for him
I drove by this place for years when I worked in Ft Wash. Love the rehab on the original Dresher Inn. Very nice restaurant. Sushi bar is downstairs, with more seating upstairs. Nice menu with unusual items, like oyster shooters. My dining companion had one and liked it. He ordered his regular fare of tuna, salmon and yellowtail. Waiter mentioned that they had toro and my date upgraded. He was satisfied with the freshness and the portions of the fish. (larger that he is used to)
I had the Kitchen Hibatchi with beef. Beef was a little tough, but the balance of the dish was fresh and tasty. I would go again and more importantly he would go again. Bill came to 84. (two warm sake - one large one small)

Yummi Umami Umami
Love Umami Umami.
Consistently fresh and flavorful sushi, interesting combinations and old favorites. The tuna or salmon tower - is simple incredible - and worth the trip! I think easily some of the best sushi in our area
The service is always attentive, they are just so nice. It is a pleasant place to be, great atmosphere.
