Umi has a really nice list of signature rolls with interesting flavor combinations. The service was great and nothing was too rushed or formal. It holds quite a few people, but the tables are spread out in a way that gives you plenty of room from those around you. All in all, worth a stop for sushi in Belltown.

This place was fantastic! Started with the edamame followed by miso soup and then the real stuff! The fish was fresh and tasty. The presentation was art. The only bad was the building was noisy. I will be back next time in Seattle.

We waited in the bar for others to join us and enjoyed a happy hour snack and drink. Once seated, our waitress was very accommodating and helpful with menu suggestions. The sushi was incredible! I ate... More

Second time for dinner at the Uni Sake House....Friday evening and the place was full. Had excellent Hamachi (Yellowtail) sashimi - some of the best quality I have ever had, I have lived in Japan love sashimi. The "rolls" are very creative. We had two, the best was the "crunchy lizard" a shrimp tempura based roll with a barbeque eel... More

Hi Albert! Thanks so much for your business. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your food experience with us. I'm sorry to hear about the noise level and ambiance during your visit. Unfortunately, weekend days tend to be a little busier and a tad louder. Hope this was not enough to deter you from future visits! Best, June. More
