It was easy for everyone in our family to find something that they liked, the menu is large and all of our choices were delicious! Umi is as good as any of the Asheville Japanese restaurants! The sushi was very fresh, even in the middle of January when Hendersonville is a little slower. Definitely recommended!

This is the best Sushi we have had stateside! Atmosphere is wonderful, food selection is fabulous! The Crab Salad is to die for! We hit this spot every time we travel to Asheville on business.

We stopped in Hendersonville on our way back to KY from FL Holiday trip. This establishment was recommended by our hotel and decided to go. BAD DECISION. The only seating they had was at the sushi bar (not a problem - since I enjoy watching the chefs making their masterpieces). The couple next to us stated it took them 20... More

Eat all the sushi you want, they'll make more. From the moment you step in, you're greeted by a lovely hostess who immediately escorts you to either the bar, or.... if you're smart, your table. From there on it's Asian fusion nirvana. I got the edamame to nosh, and sashimi dishes for my main course. On to the sashimi.. even... More

Starting with the front door, Umi is plain gorgeous. (The front door is a true work of art.) We had lunch with good friends, and we were looking forward especially to sashimi. (Our friends ordered only rolls.) Granted, our sashimi was very fresh, and the pieces were generous in size; however, the lunch order consisted of nine pieces (as advertised),... More

We always order takeout and are very pleased. The Godzilla roll is fantastic! The seafood soup is also very tasty! Sea bass is great.

Have been here a number of times and it never disappoints. Generally get the Bento Box. My wife likes the tempura, which is good. Service is always first rate. Lunch Bento Box is a bargain. Never had to make reservations except on New Years Eve (and we were early)
