“Amazing Sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

Who knew you could get such sushi in Starkville! Friendly wait staff, accommodated a group of kids, and of course delicious Sushi. We ordered more than our fill and when we were done, we ordered more. Don't hesitate to give it a try!

“Calamari Yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012 via mobile

This was a great place even being there at close with them cleaning around us (not too awesome on that fact though). I got the calamari hibachi & it was amazing!!! At our table we had the following hibachi ordered & everyone loved theirs:: salmon, filet migon, calamari, grouper & chicken. The chef was very entertaining, can't recall his name though.

“Great for Groups of Friends!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

Food is awesome. Service is not perfect when busy but, overall, a high-quality Japanese restaurant in Starkville. They could be more welcoming and kind to customers. The box sushi is very recommended for the price, banana tempura for dessert, and Happy Hour was a pleasant surprise!

“Over Rated an Over Priced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

I eat at Umi over the weekend. I found the service to be good, but menu was way “over priced” for lunch & dinner. $18.95 is excessive for a small strip of sirloin with trimmings. There is much better value & food quality in other restaurants in the Starkville area. I was not happy about the menu prices and do not recommend it.

“oversalted, vegetarian options mot marked”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

Some dishes are oversalted and seem unhealthy. I like their rolls though. The vegetarian options MUST be clearly marked because I ended up eating a soup containing fish stock because the waiter did not know that vegetarian=no fish.
