“Quiet Dinner”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We were traveling and spent the night in Charleston, looked on Yelp and Tripadvisor and decided on Umami, had never been to one before. It was in a sleepy part of town and not many folk were dining, Staff was friendly. We ordered a veggie sushi roll which was good, the miso soup was served warm not hot... so I didnt eat mine. The Hibachi chiken was Fantastic, the best I have had yet! seasoned and cooked to perfection. The veggies were cooked perfectly as well. One side note, the chef "treated" us by adding two shrimp on the side of each plate.. only problem is we dont eat shellfish. Great dinner for the price. taste great.

“Excellent - a must try!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

We are driving through Charleston and used Yelp to find this gem. The miso soup was great and the vegetarian suchi roll was excellent. We finished with the Hibachi chicken which was phenomenal. Everything was well seasoned and care was given to presentation. This was excellent food and we enjoyed our experience. Would return without a doubt.

“Fine Japanese”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Typical Japanese decor. Sushi was top notch. Bento Box and Tempura also excellent. Service attentive, but a little disorganized. Ordered sushi to have before our diners but came to table after. We didn't specifically ask to have the as appetizers, but you know what happens when you assume......
