Reviews for UMI Japanese Restaurant

I love Umi!! Reservation only, but worth every bit of the wait. The hostess is one of the best in Hickory, considering she's the only person working the floor; she attends each table quickly & converses with each person there. The chef is excellent, the food comes fast & is absolutely delicious. 5 stars easily

This restaurant serves the best authentic Japanese food from tempura, fresh sushi, curry, and miso. It’s quiet elegant setting has four tables, soft music and terrific menu choices. Their salmon sushi is some of the best we have had in the US. We look forward to going back every chance we get.

My friend and I chose UMI for our prom night dinner and we couldn’t have been more happy with the experience. We were warmly welcomed despite us being late for our reservation, the service was fast and immaculate, and the food was fabulous. It’s a small restaurant which makes for a very peaceful environment and my friend and I will definitely be returning! UMI is a hidden gem and a great choice for dinner!
