Here’s a glimpse of the delicious food served at UMI SUSHI –

Shishito Peppers

We began our meal with Shishito Peppers which is such a simple yet delicious way to start our meal. I will say that you won’t be able to stop at just one.


Hamachi Crush

Hamachi Crush

Yellowtail with garlic paste, micro cilantro, and crushed chips on top. Yup, crushed chips! Interesting, isn’t it? Just looking at this beautifully presented dish made my mouth water. Hubs instantly became a huge fan of this dish the moment he put one in his mouth and he practically devoured the entire dish.

Cajun Miso

Yet another beautifully presented dish which had seared Cajun white tuna glazed with sweet miso and mango. The mango combined with the sweet miso gave this dish a tropical twist and was one of our favorites.

Beef Negimaki

Thinly sliced beef rolled with scallion and topped with teriyaki sauce. The beef was cooked perfectly and honestly, I could easily devour a couple of these within a few minutes. And, who can say no to Teriyaki sauce?

Rock Shrimp

I always love it when the shrimp is succulent & soft from the inside with a little bit of crunch on the outside. This dish reminded us of the bang bang shrimp that you get in Bonefish Grill which is one of the most loved dishes by people.

Surume Ika

Grilled squid with ginger sauce. Once again, top-notch presentation with a perfectly lovely ginger sauce that complemented the squid really well.

Manhattan Roll

This was by far one of the prettiest looking dishes. I mean with beautiful colors like these, I’m pretty sure even a non-Sushi lover would be tempted to try it out! The vibrant colors are an instant crowd pleaser for sure.

Assorted platter

One of the most unique and interesting dishes that was served to us. While each one had different types of fish like salmon, eel, and yellowtail, the toppings ranged from kiwi, jalapeno to even a banana chip.

Salmon Fried Rice

Honestly, this was the first time we tried Salmon fried rice and it tasted mind-blowingly amazing. I think the next time, I’m going to skip regular chicken fried rice and have salmon fried rice.

Fried Vanilla Ice cream

I really, really wanted to try their exotic Bamba from their dessert menu which is basically a mango passionfruit raspberry sorbet covered in white chocolate. Unfortunately, they didn’t have it that day. However, they did have Fried Ice cream in a couple of flavors & I opted the vanilla flavor.

If you have never tried fried ice cream, you’re definitely missing out on it. It’s a great hot-cold dessert combo with its crispy fried hot exterior and a cold dollop of ice cream on the inside.

Final Verdict?

With its warm and inviting ambiance and a fresh, unique and mouthwatering menu, UMI SUSHI is the place to go whenever you are craving some mouthwatering Japanese dishes.

Don’t just go because we said so. Go because I know this place would easily become your new favorite restaurant.

As for us, I will say that instead of going to New York all the way to some of my favorite Japanese restaurants, UMI SUSHI is going to become my new go-to place.
