We never miss this place when in the N.C. mountains, it’s the best! Fresh fish, great drinks! If you’re in Asheville do not pass this restaurant up!

Our "gag of six" ate there last night and were thoroughly pleased with every aspect; food excellent, service outstanding, atmosphere just right! I wish the bill would have been smaller, but the wine & beer we had justified the expense.

Absolutely fantastic food, excellent service... some of the best sushi in WNC. The geisha roll is amazing, as are the spicy crab salad and seaweed salad. Good for business lunches, as well as romantic dates, and family dinners. Friendly staff.

Most places were closed Sunday, so we tried Umi. Glad they were open, but would not return. Poor win selections, side salads swimming in dressing, edamame app small, but teriyaki meals way too big. Too much meat. Service ok. Felt like cattle. Get in. Get...More

It would never have occurred to me to expect excellent Asian food in the western reaches of NC, just because one tends to associate this cuisine with the ocean. So glad to be proven wrong. The menu is extensive and somewhat creative, catering to both...More

The couple we were with suggested Umi's because it's their favorite restaurant. It's now our favorite too! Friendly attentive bartenders and waitresses, and the food is exceptional.

Our waiter was very professional. Didn't once ask "how are things". We ordered the double roll sushi lunch with miso soup. Very tasty, generous and inexpensive. It was the first time I heard a Japanese woman speaking English with a southern accent. Highly recommended.

Trip Advisor doesn't allow posting links, but you can go online and search their website where they have a link to the menu. Try the spicy crab salad appetizer. It's not too spicy, but really delicious!
