Talk about a great dining experience. We have eaten here on several occasions and they do not disappoint. The food is outstanding - my go-to meal is always flaming edamame to start (the best you will ever have), and I usually have the teriyaki salmon...More

I visited Numu with friends. We had four people in our group. I ordered the Sea Bass with a side of regular French fries and Yuca fries. While the fish was good, had good seasoning I would not recommend ordering it. In my opinion it...More

Waited what seemed to be a little too long for our food. Place is nice but could use more greenery. Dishes were tasty but not necessarily true to their description. Friendly staff.

First time here. Greeted by Gustavo. Very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is open and airy. Good atmosphere. The food is fresh and served in large portions. Grilled camarones, edamame, and the sushi selections are good choices. We will return.

The sashimi and the service were both wonderful! I had the potstickers and the tuna sashimi... All was prompt and wonderfully cooked. I was overcharged for the sashimi but as soon as I brought it to their attention they were very kind and apologetic and...More
