The best sushi this side of town. Great service and food at a reasonable price. All my out of town coworkers go to Umi when sushi is desired. High recommended.

This place made some of the WORST sushi I have ever had, not to mention they have outrageous hours in which they close in the middle of the day (like we are in Europe). How they afford to stay in business is beyond me! Have been twice now (not knowingly I had gone several years back and when we pulled... More

I wasn't sure whether I'd like the sushi as I don't eat it. However, the baked rolls are fantastic!! I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere in here. It is a wonderful place to have a dinner with friends, as we were, and relax after a day in the city. Plus, it's in a part of old San Diego... More

We were in San Diego in March and went here for dinner one night. What a great place. We are die hard sushi lovers and this was a great find. To start we had the Philadelphia roll, which was very fresh and very tasty. Our meals included miso soup and salad. I had the Chiriachi Don, and my husband had... More

Had a great opportunity to spend only one night in one of our favorite cities and were craving sushi. Well we sure were glad we stopped here after reading previous T. A. reviews. My date had CHERASHI and I had a suhi / sashimi combination meal. Both came with an excellent salad and Miso soup. Restaurant on Shelter Island which... More

the seafood salad here is excellent. They have a good selection of fish, the white fish is very good and rolls are also good. The teppanyaki is good and the seafood salad excellent.
