We were waited by Tony that works there and he was so informative and told us all about happy hour and made it feel very welcoming. Tony was amazing and was very polite. The location itself is very nice and in a great area. It’s kinda small but we enjoyed eating there and we will be dining again

Only five pieces of sushi for $14??? The Yakitori was smaller than a slice of bacon. And the $15 drinks were basic. This place used to be awesome, but now I feel like they are trying to cheat their patrons to make up for their quarantine losses. Very disappointing.

Everything was good starting from the Edamame to the Waygu beef and sushi! Our server was always on top of everything for our group of 9. Thank you!

Great food— sushi was fresh; ramen was delicious. Biggest disappointment was they nickel and dime everything— side of hot sauce was 50cents; they don’t allow you to substitute anything, ie if you don’t want the pork in the ramen and ask to put tofu instead, you pay the full price plus extra for tofu. I bet they lose customers on that fact alone... so if you don’t want to be overcharged for your meal, this isn’t the place for you. But, food is delicious is you can get past all the up-charges. Lastly, we dined during COVID and they were NOT socially distancing the tables... they used every last table they had... we lucked out dining early and asked for a table away from others, but as it got busy they were packing people in.

Great experience! Super yummy food - the vegetarian ramen was amazing. Our waiter was SO great, so friendly and nice. He really felt like a good friend. I don’t know his name but he was dressed as a lady for Halloween! 10/10 recommend this place!

Hands down the best sushi I have ever had. It's competitive pricing for other sushi spots in the area but the quality and cuts of fish they use are so much better. Their sake is also better than sake we've had at other places.

My one complaint is that the tables are fairly close together and I don't think that we were 6 feet apart from other patrons.

Awesome! This restaurant had a varied menu which was well executed. I was traveling with a friend who had lived in Japan. He ordered a variety of sushi, tempura, and other dishes which were served with miso soup and a fresh crisp salad that included various greens (not just iceberg lettuce) and a delightful house-made dressing. I ordered a cocktail which was light, refreshing, and authentically Japanese. Yes, I had two. The facility itself was informal, comfortable, and tending more toward a basic presentation. Nonetheless the food, service, and hospitality were second to none. Despite the fact we were the last to leave before they closed for the day, we were treated like honored guests and encouraged to take our time. Highly recommend!

The Ramen was the best I've had! I tried the Thai Coconut Curry and it was so flavorful, I had every last bit of it. My family tried 6 different types of sushi and were not disappointed. The presentation and flavors were excellent. Great service too! Highly recommend Yume! Can't wait to go again!

Despite this terrible pandemic, Yume does not disappoint. The sushi remains the best in the city. Make a reservation before you go to insure you will have a table. They are maintaining social distancing so the restaurant can't accomodate as much as they used to.
The cocktails and sake menu is eclectic and there is something for everyone.
If we lived closer, we would visit more often. Love it!

The food was absolutely amazing. Our server was awesome also. My only concern was when we got there we all had our masks on and the couple in front of us did not have their masks on and the hostess still went and sat them. She didn’t require them to put on their mask. Which I could’ve let that go. The guys behind the sushi bar two out of four of them were wearing a mask one had his on his chin and another one wasn’t wearing one at all. There was another guy that was running around that I think was just some type of runner and he was also not wearing a mask coming back-and-forth between the kitchen and the tables. My only concern is the inconsistency. Until they can maintain a consistent mask policy I will not be returning.

This place has a great variety of Ramen and it was pretty good! The only complaint I have is my hubby got the Tonkotsu ramen and his pork was way over cooked but I got the Thai Coconut Curry Ramen and it was sooooo good! Our waiter (Hunter) was amazing! He was so patient with all our questions and he was super funny! I do recommend this place if you’re looking for some ramen and their sushi was great too!

The sushi is the best in Charlotte. We arrived and were seated within the bounds of social distancing rules. The menu was covered in plastic to allow for wiping and the wait staff was wearing masks. The sushi was fresh and innovative, as always. We will definitely be back.
