    A little pricey, but fantastic sushi and super friendly staff. My go-to sushi spot (especially for takeout).

    Both restaurateur and punters a tad up their own arses however: good selection of Sake a tad uptight - Japanese style.

    I really like Umi - really fresh fish, and a great spot for a weeknight dinner, when you want to wind down, eat something delicious and talk about the day.

    Agedashi Tofu is PERFECT! Soft tofu, with an ideal fried skin, bonito and delicious broth! Careful - it's served super hot!

    Their rolls are Okay. But the sashimi deluxe and chirashi bowls are usually pretty fresh and yum

    Not sure the hype. Sushi rice was very good, but expensive for what you get. Kani Sunomono was good too.
