I come here every once and while and it's pretty dang good. My wife and I are sushi lovers and this place has always made us both happy. My son on the other hand hates (he doesn't like any fish at all). If your in the area, stop in. I wouldn't go out of my way to come here.

We absolutely love this place. The fish is very fresh and plenty of choices to chose from. You have to try the Godzilla Roll! Lots of parking, great service although a little on the slow side so don't go when you're starving like we always seem to do. A+

Pros: Fresh Fish, a lot of parking, and great friendly people

Cons: Service can be slow- usually one to two chefs

This will be the best Japanese restaurant you will ever go to in your life! My group of friends and I have been eating here at least once a month since the restaurant opens a few years ago. The sushi rolls are by far the most unique and best tasting rolls you will find anywhere in the Bay Area. The service is also excellent. The chef and the staff are very friendly and make the dining experience very personal and enjoyable. I recommend this place to everyone who's is looking for a great meal and dining experience

I have have had sushi all around the world (Japan, Korea, Taiwan, etc..) and in addition I have also tried nearly all of the sushi establishments in San Jose and the surrounding areas and UMI is the best. Owner and Chef Hee Kim has created an enviroment that even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy.
Why is it the best?
- All of the fish is VERY FRESH.
- Serving size is better than anyone else.
- VERY fair pricing.
- Incredible selection of Beer, Sake and Soju.
- Staff is friendly and attentive.
- Regulars make the place lively and fun for even for family's.

The fish is amazingly fresh and abundant. Hee and Danny truly create edible art. The house rolls are fantastic (try the Red and/or Pink Dragon). They also offer many other Asian style dishes that are not on the main menu. Tell them what you like and let them create something special for you. If you like spicy, try the Poki. I also highly recommend the Rooster Roll. It is a combination of Spicy Tuna, "Asian Crunch" and topped with Maguro (tuna), Sake (salmon), Wasabi Tobiko and and special house sauce. You will not be dissapointed. The Bento boxes are fantastic and plentiful. If you like to have a little something to drink with your meal, try the Sake and Soju collection. If you are not sure, just ask. They will help you determine what the best drink is with the Sushi you ordered. If you prefer beer, no worries. They offer 5 different types of Asian beer.

You will learn on your first visit that Umi Sushi is what every sush place strives to be. Freindly, fresh and the best at what they do.

This place is really fantastic! I didn't know what to expect because I hadn't heard much about it. The sushi selection is great, much more than other sushi places I've been too. A lot of specials and they are priced very reasonably! Service was quick and friendly. I recommend getting the Hurricane and Godzilla. They sure did give a lot of fish. MMMM melts in your mouth good. If you're in the area, you must definitely go here. I'll be coming back!

There are only a couple of sushi places that I will go to in Silicon Valley, and this is one of them. The fish and seafood is always fresh and well-prepared. Even if you are not a sushi fan you will find lots of delicious Japanese dishes to try. They are all good. Small, cozy restaurant. Not fancy and the prices are good.

Ive tried just about every sushi place in San Jose, and none even come close in flavor or presentation. A must for anyone who appreciates and expects the highest quality in fresh sushi.

Umi Sushi is by far the best Sushi restaurant I have ever experienced. Their fish is always top quality, and the service is impeccable. I highly recommend the Almaden spicy tuna and the premium white tuna...it doesn't get any better than this!! Thanks for your outstanding service Hee. I look forward to sharing another Saki shot with you.

There was nothing not to love about this place! I went there with a group of friends and sat at the bar and about 20 rolls later we were set! Both of the Sushi Chefs were very interested in how our food was and gave us a freebie at the end (a definite plus in my book!) They also stayed well past closing to make sure we enjoyed our meal! I'll be back again and again and again and...

Umi Sushi is truly a gem when it comes to sushi restaurants. The fish is melt in your mouth fresh and the rolls are creative masterpieces! This is not just another sushi restaurant. The care and creativity that Hee and his team put into the food is amazing. I especially like the Almaden Special Tuna roll -- you can't find anything like this combination of spicy tuna, tuna, and a special garlic and dill sauce anywhere else!

If you love sushi, sake, and a fun time this place is for you! My husband and our friends frequent this restaurant at least once a week since we have found it. The sushi is excellent, some of the best fish we have ever had, it is amazingly fresh. The rolls are wonderful with fantastic sauces that are tasty and not at all heavy. Our favorites are the Arizona roll (yellow tail sushi with this spicy sauce), the hurricane roll and their Tuna Taka which is thin slices of seared ahi with this amazing sauce, I have no idea what is in it, but it is fantastic. The restaurant is very warm and they also have great food as well but we usually stick to the sushi!!! Truly a great find in the south bay!!

Umi Sushi has the best sushi in San Jose. As someone who has been eating sushi for over twenty years, this is one of the best!! The fish is very fresh and practically melts in your mouth. The rolls are creative, delicious and made with great care and are a wonderful creation of taste and spice. The chef (Hee) is very friendly and has many different types of Sake that he can educate you on! The wait staff is fantastic as well and you never have to ask twice for anything. Our favorite rolls are: Pink Dragon, Cherry Blossom, Green Dragon, and their special Dill Salmon! Also you can't go wrong with the Almaden Special Tuna Roll, a unique combination of spicy tuna, tuna and this amazing sauce with dill and garlic. True sushi lovers will find this place to be a gem among restaurants in San Jose.
