    Chef Fuyuhiko Ito continues to serve one of Atlanta's best omakase experiences, and this glitzy Buckhead dining room might be the best place to spot a film-industry celebrity. Read more

    The spicy tuna crispy rice is extraordinary. The rice is lightly fried, then topped with spicy tuna tartare and jalapeño. The fresh fish, crunch, and spice all swirl into a heavenly bite. Read more

    Expect a lot of ppl even on weekdays. Get the avocado starter, tuna tartare, otoro nigiri w/ caviar, and the chocolate bento box (it's better than it looks)! Best sushi in ATL🍣🍴

    Ito-Kase (Chef's choice omakase) at the bar is definitely recommended. Great service and conversation with the chefs and good food. Favorite nigiri: salmon with truffle cream, uni, Wagyu.

    Atlanta diners have been mad for Umi Sushi since it opened in Buckhead less than a year ago. Atlanta Journal-Constitution critic John Kessler approves, calling it " a stunning new spot." Read more

    As of summer 2013, this place is brand new, and always on a wait, but it's worth it. Amazingly fresh sushi with wonderful textures and flavors. Certified Kobe beef to die for. Great drink selection.

    I've been all over the country and this is the best Sushi I've had to date. The selections are brilliant. Try the Scallop appetizer, you will not be disappointed by the taste or the presentation!

    The best Japanese restaurant in Atlanta -- there are NO others, trust me! Order the Omakase if you are feeling adventurous or just sit at the sushi bar & what the magestry!

    NEVER GO TO THIS RESTAURANT! They have weird dress code and keep us from having dinner there, while we then proceeded to CHOPS, a more luxury restaurant, and were seated and served nicely.

    I had a great time on my birthday. Fish sauce combos were great. Not much I didn’t like. Snapper potato dish was a little wonky.

    This might sound weird, but their pickled ginger is really good! Ginger from other restaurants is too "soapy" and bitter, like Lemon Fresh Joy. Umi's seemed sweeter to me. Excellent!

    So what’s the best way to approach a meal at Umi? You might start as we did with a couple of appetizers from the kitchen. Read more

    Each tiny bite-size piece of uni is dry with no traces of oil — a sign of a deft hand — and the flavors all melt together with a quick swipe in the accompanying lemony ponzu sauce. Read more

    Great food and service, however, waiting an hour for a table when we have a reservation is not up to our standards.
