This place is always busy, reservations are highly suggested on the weekends especially between the hours of 6:30 and 8 PM. Sometimes the owner will order for me which is fun, since I tend to stick with the same order each week.

My wife and I dined at Umi on Christmas Eve and had a wonderful experience. We had to sushi rolls, chicken Pad Thai, and sea weed salad. All were very good. The sushi was very tasty and Pad Thai was spicy but not overly so....More

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.

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!
