Have been here a number of times and it never disappoints. Generally get the Bento Box. My wife likes the tempura, which is good. Service is always first rate. Lunch Bento Box is a bargain. Never had to make reservations except on New Years Eve (and we were early)

A great place to gather with friends and family. The food, presentation and attentiveness of the staff is on pint and very very good. I highly recommend dining here.

My husband and I ate at Umi during our third stay at Pinebrook Manor (see separate review), a bed and breakfast off of Kanuga Road in Hendersonville. The food at Umi is thoughtfully prepared and some of the best Japanese food we've had anywhere. I highly recommend this restaurant for its consistently excellent food and level of service. You probably... More

This is an excellent sushi and Japanese food restaurant. Period. I really enjoy sushi and am usually disappointed. Not the case here. Had a few different rolls and some hot food too. Everything was top notch. I was staying in Waynesville and drove almost 40 minutes to get here based on a recommendation from a family member and have to... More

We were treated to a delicious lunch yesterday. My husband enjoyed the sushi and I enjoyed the shrimp tempora. Not only was the food delicious but also artfully presented. Our waiter Mr. Crawford was attentive but also provided excellent descriptions of dishes we were unsure of. Looking forward to our next visit!

Very nice interior. Service polite, cheerful, and effective. Menu very reasonably priced for the quality and presentation. First time, so unable to provide comprehensive judgment about most menu choices, but what we had was excellent. I had Gyoza, fried with pork, and it was as good as you would want and expect. I also had what they call their Dynamite... More

This is a fine restaurant. Food and service is fabulous. Wide choice of Japanese cuisine and even larger sushi menu. Facilities are very nice, but small. Reservations would be advised during peak dining hours. Definitely a must place to eat , if in area. Prices are not out of bounds.

Love this place. Always crowed but worth the wait whether for sushi, bento box, noodles, Thai or teriyaki. Impressive and always fresh.
