Time Out Says

Tucked away at the bottom of Murjan 1 in JBR, on the ‘wrong’ side of The Walk, Umi Sushi is empty most days. The smart interior is inviting enough though, with lots of light wood and a bar at the far side behind which chefs can be seen slaving away. As well as the regular tables and bar stools, there’s also more traditional sunken seating available. We’ll forgive them the off-putting ’90s hits that played on loop during our visit, but not the lack of quality when it comes to the sushi, the main focus of the menu. The ‘crazy crunchy’ roll is anything but, proving decidedly stodgy, the tempura batter damp and doughy. On the plus side, portions are large, and the grilled seafood dishes and salads are better, but the flavours and presentation lack authenticity and the crockery is rather un-Japanese. Visit for the generous portions, but don’t expect too much else.
