Description: Umi offers a unique twist to the traditional Japanese cuisine in Central Florida. Every menu item is prepared by using meticulous methods starting from the preparation down to the execution. The dishes express refinement and art in the chefs final presentation to you. Locals and world travelers alike are treated to a dining experience to share small plates cooked from the robata grill, kitchen and the sushi bar, or dive into our Signature sushi rolls and Moriawase platters. You'll find Japanese, Korean and European flavors in our food and in the masterly crafted desserts that are a hit amongst locals. Navigate to our online menu and come in to see and taste for yourself! Chef de Cuisine César Cruz and Head Sushi Chef John Park select only the finest and freshest produce, seafood and meats sourced locally and from around the world, insuring that each handmade dish is prepared just for you. Are you a world traveler and love artwork? The restaurant walls are lined with authentic Japanese artwork from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries used for decoration. Japanese screens, woodblock prints, masks, tables/stands, ceramics and wood carvings are just a few of the things you will spot while dining.

The food was beyond excellent, seriously! The customer service was fantastic as well. Very knowledgeable. Even when presented with an unruly customer with an obvious mental impairment, who was making life not only challenging, but incredibly difficult and frustrating for even the most patient of individuals, the customer service was still top notch. Not sure I would have handled the situation as well. Pretty sure not.

Hands down, the best sushi in Orlando area! Great wait staff! Huge wine assortment!

If you like sushi and have never been to Umi, you have never had sushi!

We go to Umi quite often. Our fave: grilled squid, salmon canape ( must try), C&C roll, not to mention, surprisingly the most delicate chicken wings on skewers we've tried. Their robata grill is unique. All sushi selection is as fresh as you can ask for but if you are up for a surprise come here for a first class wine experience. Françoi sure knows how to pick the best wines from Europe to offer to his lucky customer. There is no wrong pick. The service is friendly and warm. We are always very well taken care of by all the staff who is run by good management. And I'm in absolute love with Mascarpone cheesecake desert. Not too sweet, refreshing...
