You like Japanese? How about Thai? Korean? Check, check, check. Umami got it all. First time we visited we thought it was going to be another "sushi" place but Wrong. The various plate of food give you grate options and the quality is superb.
The interior of the restaurant is very modern and staff very nice. Give it try and you will probably agree this is the best Asian food spot in town. I'm craving some kimchi fried rice...

WOW... Just WOW... Located in the old Sushi Me in Lenox Village Umami is amazing. Its fresh, hip and CLEAN inside. You are always greeted by the owner Michelle at the door with a smile. The servers are so nice. I had Katy this last visit she was attentive and helpful with her suggestions. The sushi is so fresh and tasty. Some of the best miso soup I've ever had. Not to mention the calamari is the perfect size, and didn't come frozen in a bag. The attention to detail is next to none. Not the most amazing food presentation but it makes up in food quality, taste and value. I'm serious I have eaten food at all of the best sushi restaurants in Nashville and this one takes the cake folks. Their desserts are amazing as well. This time I had the cheesecake which is a multi layered cake with a fruit layer, a cake layer and 2 cheesecake layers.... its to die for... This is the place!

Lenox Village has been redeemed! At first we were really sad sushi me had closed. When Umami opened we figured we would try it out. Boy were we pleasantly surprised! Walked in and pleasantly greeted by the owner. She sat us and we were greeted by a very helpful server. She was polite, and very attentive. The food was absolutely amazing. The rolls were of a nice size and FRESH! Did I mention how FRESH they were? Definitely a great place to have sushi!

Umami is incredibly delicious! It's located where Sushi Me used to be and I am personally happy Umami is here instead. There is a wide selection of plates, from sushi to typical Korean dishes. The Korean tacos, Kimchi fries and Bimbimbop are so tasty. This is a must try for you foodies out there, get in the car and drive, walk or run here now!
