“Enjoyed the visit”
Reviewed 26 October 2012

The food is very good and we haven't had anything we didn't like. The only objection is cost... however, all sushi, in our experience, tends to be pricy, so Umami is certainly not an exception. At the same time, it can depend what you order. The regular rolls (California, veggie, sweet potato, etc) are reasonable and very good. The fancier stuff (like their own Dresher roll) is pricier of course. The place is very nice and still newly refurbished and we always find the service to be friendly and helpful. Umami is right down the street scores from convenience points.

“Delicious and Unexpected.”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

I've been to Umami Umami many times for dinner and I am always happy with the greeting, service, and food. The hostess recognizes me and really makes me and my guests feel welcome. There is a broad selections of rolls, sushi, and entrées so everyone finds something delicious. I am not very adventurous so I usually end up with the California roll or the shrimp tempura roll - both of which have been great.

“A very pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Creativity and great food... We live in the area but, never had an opportunity to check it out since they opened about a year ago... My wife had a small event there with some co-workers and was amazed at the service and quality of the food.
Certainly not inexpensive but, most certainly worth it... We went for a causal late night dinner and couldn't get over the presentation, quality and freshness.. If you are even remotely interested in sushi or, a sushi connoisseur you will LOVE this place.

“Fantastic Service, Creative Sushi!”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

Found a $20 double take deals coupon for this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is located on Limekiln Pike near the Dreshertown Rd intersection, across the street from Starbucks. It's neatly decorated with wood floors and modern, clean decor. We ordered the Umami Roll Sampler (Tower, Red Dragon & Ninja Rolls) and a spicy salmon roll. The rolls were fresh, flavorful, large and filling! I highly recommend the Ninja roll and the Tower. They were both outstanding! Our waiter was friendly, prompt and helped us make wonderful menu selections. The prices were reasonable. The Roll sampler, roll, drinks and dessert cost $55 .... not bad for 2 people, especially with a $20 coupon! We had a great time and definitely will be making this a regular sushi spot!

“Great Visit/So Much Improved”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

We had gone to this restaurant within a week of its opening, and it was terrible. Only sushi and terriyaki dishes on the menu and both were horrible. Friends convinced us to go back this past Saturday, and I never would have known it was the same restaurant. Two of us had the Umami Umami sushi sampler, which was a smaller version of the "tuna tower", plus shrimp tempura sushi and spicy tuna sushi), a third person had a tempura dish, and one had chicken bulgogi (Korean style dish with onions and peppers). All of it was excellent. We were there rather early (6 pm) so no kitchen "timing issues" were noted. Would have given it an "excellent" except for the wine I had, which was rather expensive per-glass plus had somewhat of a metallic taste (Malbec). Definitely back on the list of places to go. Try it out.
