Seattle Weekly's Description

Heads up, sushi-craving fashionistas. This sophisticated sushi joint serves maki late into the night, and its atmosphere is decidedly clubby. Umi offers both traditional and innovative sushi rolls, along more substantial fare, from udon soup to teriyaki. True to its name, the sake house provides more than 45 varieties of rice wine, as well as specialty cocktails like the shisojito, made with the Japanese herb shiso instead of mint.

    Happy Hour sushi is great quality at a very reasonable price

  • Seattle Weekly on 03/07/11

    Happy hour is extended to 8pm if you're on the porch or at the cocktail bar. Get more tips with the Happy Hour app: http://www.gotime.com/seattle/mobile

    Umi is "ocean" in japanese.

  • Stills on 06/14/10

    Skip the gimmicky rolls (as tasty as they are)-- the xeroxed b&w menu of fresh sashimi is where it's at.
