We are big fans of this restaurant so we were so happy when they opened up again. The service is always friendly and they often go above and beyond with something complimentary like miso soup, edamame or a fresh orange after dinner. The sushi is...very fresh and is as much a feast for the eyes as it is the palate. For something different, try the sushi pizza made on a panko crust. The green dragon roll and the sno-cone roll are also delicious.More

Having eaten in every sushi place in Squamish, many around BC and some in Japan this place ranks high and is my favourite place in Sq. Food is consistent although service may vary slightly with demand which is normal in that business. Have been there...dozens of times solo and with groups. Always accommodating and pleasant.More

We had a wonderful family dinner at the restaurant. The prices were very reasonable. We were provided miso soup and edamame on the house, which was a nice surprise. The rolls were very tasty with some very interesting flavours. We’d definitely come back.

Went out for a sushi lunch and picked this newer restaurant. Really nice comfortable place. Servers were happy, nice and prompt. The food was was amazing and really really good also larger box meals than normal. I had beef teriyaki lunch for under 10 bucks....It included lots of yummy tempura, gyozo, miso soup and salad. My wife had the chicken teriyaki and could not finish hers. We will definitely return for dinner and take out. What an awesome surprise!More

Umai Sushi never ever disappoints. The wonderful kindness from the staff who greets you, stays with you throughout the meal and it is surpassed only by the delicious large portions of whatever it is you decide to eat. It’s a fantastic place to eat. Highly...recommended!!More

We have been here many times now and consider it the place to go for sushi in Squamish. It doesn’t seem to be a secret anymore as it seems to be much busier than before. Too bad for us but good for them! We order...a small boat and various side dishes (including the recommended Snow Cone and Green Dragon rolls - both really good) for our group of five. Service is fine and it’s a really nice touch that they bring you orange pieces for dessert. Prices are reasonable.More

This restaurant is absolutely wonderful. The value for money is only exceeded by the freshness of the food and the wonderful portions which is only exceeded by the friendliness and kindness of the people working here. It's my new go-to place in town now, especially...for lunch where there are some fantastic deals. I can't recommend this place enough; stop reading this and get yourself a table :)More

There are several sushi restaurants in Squamish; they've all disappointed me up until I tried Umai. The young-server is always attentive and exceedingly nice. After skiing Whistler on weekdays, I rush to get here before the lunch bento special ends at 3 pm, on my...way back to Vancouver to pickup the kids. The little touches such as the in-house made sauces and garnishes are just examples of how much they care about their food.More

Was up here for work and decided to give it a try. They had a great variety on their menu. Their wakame salad was huge and was artfully arranged. Their rolls were delicious and good sized portion. The service was great. Both my friend and...I would definitely try it again.More
