    Fish was frozen & gyoza came out of bags

    I love chirashi and unfortunately the chirashi here is not very good. The fish was frozen and definitely not fresh. The service was ok. They weren't terribly friendly. My boyfriend had the sushi deluxe and said it all tasted bland. We were seated by the kitchen and so got a look at the chef's pouring gyoza and other things out of pre-packaged bags- the kind you can buy at any asian food mart.

    Best take out in Gramercy

    This is the best take out sushi place in the Gramercy area, hands down.

    I absolutely love this place. I come here at least once a week cause its just the best sushi in new york. And I've eaten all over each of the boroughs so I know what I'm talking about! I can seriously eat their rolls for every meal of my day and I would be completely content! I've gotten so many of my friends hooked on this place.

    I agree..

    This joint may not have the atmosphere or "authentic" waiters and staff but for the money has some of the greatest sush in the city. I'm a fan of the special rolls and anyone that tells me thats not real sushi can kiss my behind. They have soo many awesome special rolls that are way fatter than your usual skimpy roll served by the majority of places that Umi competes with. Umi rocks!!!

    A Phenomenal Neighborhood "Go To"

    Have tried all the best sushi places (at much higher prices) and purely based on sushi you can't beat this small, unassuming place. The size of the pieces, freshness of the fish, unique rolls, value, etc...it wins on all counts. I like Yama also and it competes on all counts with Yama. Don't go there for the room because its small, dark and much better suited for take-out (which it does a brisk business). But the sushi and sashimi are great. Try the Sushi/Sashimi combo for two which at roughly $40 is a tremendous value for the amount and quality of food they give you. If you're looking for a Saturday night, hip place to be (ie. Bond Street, Morimoto, etc.) certainly this isn't it, but if you are looking for a great Sushi meal at a reasonable price with no ambience go here!

    Forget Deb's Comment this place Rocks!

    OK, It's no Bond, Nobu or Sushi Samba. The menu does not cover the full spectrum of flare, but all the basics are perfected here. I prefer the sashimi to the rolls and the rice is served with extra flavor. The fish is always fresh and the cuts are HUGE! Best in the neighborhood in that department and I have checked, believe me. Don't expect to be blown away by the atmosphere, but you get what you pay for in this city. Tiny space but A+ for delivery or a casual meal. Top rating for what it is a local sushi place!

    Seriously, I'm surprised by all the positive comments. Most of the reviewers must be "gai-jin." "Mouthwatering?" You need to go to a Japanese place where there are Japanese sushi men, not a place run by Chinese people. I was so disappointed, and so excited to eat there after reading all the good reviews...not one of the better places.
