Absolute gem - have been coming to Umai for YEARS. It has earned my favorite sushi place in the USA :) I took my co-founder today and he agreed that the sushi rolls were the best he has had despite traveling and trying new things constantly (New York, LA, San Fran, ect). Thank you Umai for consistently giving great service and for treating me and my guests the best! More

Went there on a Saturday night, just looking for a place in the South Loop after seeing a movie downtown. Valet parking is available; parking on Michigan Av is tough. We had a reservation for 7:30, but still had to wait about 15 minutes (very crowded). Sat down, got a nice bottle of wine for a reasonable price (they also have some very expensive wines on the menu, for the big spenders in the world). We split an enormous Caesar salad, $10, very tasty. My wife had an eggplant appetizer as her entree, which was easily enough for two people. I had the giambotta: 1/2 chicken, two Italian sausages, nice sauce, peppers and onions. Really tasty Took home about 1/2 the food. I would definitely return. The pizza looked great, and all the portions looked huge. I was drooling over the lasagna that was ordered at the next table. Great, attentive service. More

Give yourself plenty of time if you want pizza. As soon as we were seated I felt the waiter was talking us out of ordering pizza as it would be over 30 minutes. Doesn’t work well when part of the group was getting pasta or salad as I was expecting pizza. More
