I'm hardly a connoisseur of the stuff, but I think this is the best sushi I've ever had. My group split a variety of rolls, all of which were good. We also got the savory sampler, which was delicious. The dining room was busy and loud, but we didn't feel rushed or have trouble getting comfortable and conversing. The bar... More

Don’t have time to go out to sea, catch a tuna, and filet it? Don’t get your sushi mats in a knot! SakiTumi offers fresh sushi, hot and chilled sake, and a sleek wood-trimmed atmosphere right here in Columbia, SC.

I had a drink & appetizers here on Friday night, 1/27/12. I enjoyed my west coast spring rolls & shrimp tempura roll, but the drunken shrimp were so-so. However, the slew of attractive ladies at Saki Tumi that evening were quite a pleasant sight to behold.

Maybe I'm a sushi-snob having lived in much larger cities and having had access to really great, fresh fish. That said, I was very underwhelmed by the quality at SakiTumi. Just looking at the fish in the counter, I should have known better than to order sushi, but I took a chance. Pretty much everything was disappointing. Not only was... More

My friends and I have been going to SakiTumi a lot lately and we always have a great time! Best food in town, hands down. I have had sushi everywhere in Columbia and I have never had such fresh fish. Great for beginner sushi eaters too. If you are a sushi lover, they even have sushi classes for groups and... More

The freshest sushi and best menu in Columbia, by far. The staff is just so friendly and knowledgeable, and is willing to help anyone. :) Great specials and an excellent atmosphere. I am so glad I found this place and I told all of my friends that its the go-to place for fantastic food.

SakiTumi is one of my favorite places to hang out in Columbia! The atmosphere is like none other. They have a video system that plays music videos all night...the music selection is awesome...mostly new hits but a lot of classic hits as well. You can even request your favorite songs and they will play them! The food is amazing too!... More

We LOVE this restaurant! My husband & I have eaten there several times & we are never disappointed! The seared tuna tacos are the most excellent blend of flavors! They also have a simple green salad with the most delicious ginger dressing...simply to die for! They always have interesting wines on their menu also. The overall "feel" of the restaurant... More

We went here on a recommendation of a friend. I loved the atmosphere. They had great music with music videos but the music was not so loud that you could not carry on a conversation. The atomsphere is fun. I loved the uniqueness of the menu and the food was excellent. We will definitley go back.
