One of our favs- tasty and fresh 1/15/2007

We absolutely love this place. The fish is very fresh and plenty of choices to chose from. You have to try the Godzilla Roll! Lots of parking, great service although a little on the slow side so don't go when you're starving like we always seem to do. A+ Pros: Fresh Fish, a lot of parking, and great friendly people Cons: Service can be slow- usually one to two chefs more

Best Japanese food in the Bay Area 12/6/2006

This will be the best Japanese restaurant you will ever go to in your life! My group of friends and I have been eating here at least once a month since the restaurant opens a few years ago. The sushi rolls are by far the most unique and best tasting rolls you will find anywhere in the Bay Area. The service is also excellent. The chef and the staff are very friendly and make the dining experience very personal and enjoyable. I recommend this place to everyone who's is looking for a great meal and dining experience Pros: An all around great dining experience Cons: Leaves you wishing you could eat this good every day more

Best Selection of Sushi Around! 9/23/2006

This place is really fantastic! I didn't know what to expect because I hadn't heard much about it. The sushi selection is great, much more than other sushi places I've been too. A lot of specials and they are priced very reasonably! Service was quick and friendly. I recommend getting the Hurricane and Godzilla. They sure did give a lot of fish. MMMM melts in your mouth good. If you're in the area, you must definitely go here. I'll be coming back! Pros: reasonable prices for sushi, great service, great food! Cons: not as lively as i would have liked, but enjoyed the quiet more

Best Sushi in town! 5/22/2006

Umi Sushi is by far the best Sushi restaurant I have ever experienced. Their fish is always top quality, and the service is impeccable. I highly recommend the Almaden spicy tuna and the premium white doesn't get any better than this!! Thanks for your outstanding service Hee. I look forward to sharing another Saki shot with you. Pros: Best quality, Great service, Comfortable more

Best Sushi in the Bay! 5/4/2006

There was nothing not to love about this place! I went there with a group of friends and sat at the bar and about 20 rolls later we were set! Both of the Sushi Chefs were very interested in how our food was and gave us a freebie at the end (a definite plus in my book!) They also stayed well past closing to make sure we enjoyed our meal! I'll be back again and again and again and... Pros: Service, Atmosphere, Food Cons: Absolutely Nothing! more

Truly a Gem! 3/22/2006

Umi Sushi is truly a gem when it comes to sushi restaurants. The fish is melt in your mouth fresh and the rolls are creative masterpieces! This is not just another sushi restaurant. The care and creativity that Hee and his team put into the food is amazing. I especially like the Almaden Special Tuna roll -- you can't find anything like this combination of spicy tuna, tuna, and a special garlic and dill sauce anywhere else! Pros: Excellent Food, Courteous Service, Creative more

FANTASTIC!!!!!!! 12/30/2005

If you love sushi, sake, and a fun time this place is for you! My husband and our friends frequent this restaurant at least once a week since we have found it. The sushi is excellent, some of the best fish we have ever had, it is amazingly fresh. The rolls are wonderful with fantastic sauces that are tasty and not at all heavy. Our favorites are the Arizona roll (yellow tail sushi with this spicy sauce), the hurricane roll and their Tuna Taka which is thin slices of seared ahi with this amazing sauce, I have no idea what is in it, but it is fantastic. The restaurant is very warm and they also have great food as well but we usually stick to the sushi!!! Truly a great find in the south bay!! more

Best Sushi in San Jose 6/6/2005

Umi Sushi has the best sushi in San Jose. As someone who has been eating sushi for over twenty years, this is one of the best!! The fish is very fresh and practically melts in your mouth. The rolls are creative, delicious and made with great care and are a wonderful creation of taste and spice. The chef (Hee) is very friendly and has many different types of Sake that he can educate you on! The wait staff is fantastic as well and you never have to ask twice for anything. Our favorite rolls are: Pink Dragon, Cherry Blossom, Green Dragon, and their special Dill Salmon! Also you can't go wrong with the Almaden Special Tuna Roll, a unique combination of spicy tuna, tuna and this amazing sauce with dill and garlic. True sushi lovers will find this place to be a gem among restaurants in San Jose. Pros: Clean, Fresh, Prompt Service more
