UMAI Japanese Kitchen & Sushi Ratings and Reviews
This is our go to place for celebrations, and also just if we’re in the mood to treat ourselves. The food is always consistently excellent, they have some very unique combinations, no MSG ever, and the service is impeccable.Highly recommend it, you won’t be disappointed.
Rolls and sashimi were average. Tea could have been more flavorful. Mushroom tempura was really disappointing. I expected a thin crispy coating but got a thick soft coating :(. Host was nice but could have visited the table more frequently. The look of the restaurant was nice.
Just OK. The restaurant was finishing up lunch service so we were warned when we sat down. Standard Sushi + Izakaya fare. Everyone was served a bowl of miso to start - even the person having udon. The udon was the same you would get anywhere. Sysco must have a prepared udon they offer. I had an over cooked and under seasoned (sea salt) salmon shioyaki served oddly enough with broccoli and potatoes. Sashimi seemed fine. It's not a destination.
I was in town for a music festival and my girlfriend and I found this place on Google. It sounded great and turned out to be great! The quality of the food was high and the prices were reasonable. Everything I had I liked. The service was timely, friendly, and I was paid enough attention to. Would definitely go back again when in the area.
