“Outstanding Japanese Sushi”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed a lovely dinner with their signature Umai roll and their dynamite roll along with toro appetizer and green tea ice cream for dessert. The wait staff was super-attentive. Everyone entering the restaurant was greeted warmly. A+++ on quality and service!

“Went to Umai once and never went back”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Our biggest problem was the service, We sat for almost half an hour before receiving even a glass of water. Our waitress took our order and disappeared for another 40 minutes. I had to hunt her down and ask what happened to our appetizers. She finally brought food to our table except it wasn't what we ordered. Our service experience was so bad that I can't even remember anything about the food. We legitimately spent over 2 hours there, most of it just waiting or trying to hunt down our waitress. As we left, she apologized profusely for the admittedly awful service. With so many sushi choices, why take the chance on another crappy dining experience? We won't be going back.

“Always delicious and fun!!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Another dinner at Umai...Fabulous experience, time and time again...
Ray really cares about his restaurant, fresh ingredients, and having their customers be happy...
Our favorite is the tuna pizza, and tuna tartar (blue fin, if they have it!!)
This time with tried his Udon, and it was so great...A hot pot, with thick noodles, fish broth, shrimp, chicken and veggies...
We will continue to go back anytime we can, as our daughter comes in from Philadelphia and it's her favorite sushi around!!!

“Very Nice Sushi place”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Very nice fresh fish, the sushi chef had a very good preparation and presentation. One thing to remember, many parts of PA including this one, are BYOB. I'd come here again - no problem.
