“My 2nd visit to Umi Steakhouse while working in Columbus”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

In 2013, business associates took me to Umi for dinner and I carried the memory of an excellent meal for a whole year--and returned last month for a 2nd great dining experience here. The hibachi prepared food is fresh and the 'kings of the grill' do a first rate job of preparing the rice, vegetables and meats. They are skilled at tricks--this year, our chef twirled an egg, then flipped it in the air & caught it on the spatula and tossed the still-spinning egg several times again, catching each time with the spatula and finally in the pocket of his apron. Was it a fake egg???? Anyway, I was thrilled with the consistency of this restaurant -- great evening 2 years in a row.

“Great food, just a bit pricy.”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Umi's in Columbus, MS is great. The chefs are great and prepare your meal right in front of you on a large grill. We go there for special occasions because the prices are moderately high, but worth the "show" included with your meal.

“Nihon janai....Its not Japan”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Staff are very friendly and the place is some what crowed, and their food is alright at best. Prices are fairly expensive for what they serve and I won't trip over my self rushing to get there any time soon, I suppose once was enough......

“Japanese Restaurant”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

This restaurant compared to others i have dine in is very good. The entrance is excellent which is a Torii, a traditional Japanese gate, might give you the feeling that you are about to enter a Shinto Shrine. This restaurant from the lobby, the seating booths, and the Hibachi area is very spacious. The Hibachi tables are separated, by a look through design wall, from the seating booth area. The booths are alined along the wall and are high back type, meaning when you sit down you will not be staring the other customers in the face. They have two bars. One at the entrance is a regular bar and the sushi bar which is located at the entrance of the Habachi area. Both are suitable for either waiting for your booth or Habachi table. The carry out menu is the best I have seen. It is easy to read and very well put together. The foods and service was fair and average. Dine there on Feb 15, 2014 at lunch time.
