I went for dinner with a friend and her mom as they frequent there and had a fabulous night! The waitress we had was great and so welcoming (although there seemed to be less enthusiastic wait staff there). The chef was extremely talented and made the most amazing food! If I lived in Swansea I would definitely be a frequent... More

My husband and I stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night (7 pm) for dinner. Our first warnings that we had chosen a dud of a restaurant was the cheap interior and the whiteboard with classic Chinese takeout foods like crab rangoon and fried chicken fingers. We have been to many other Japanese steakhouses in Massachusetts and Connecticut in... More

Although I felt the hibachi chef was fabulous, skilled and entertaining...the rest was sadly disappointing. The waitress made us feel like we were bothering her in her living room. The food not only took forever, came out at different times but didn't taste all that exceptional. I also felt it was way over priced for such mediocre food. Would not... More

Went here with 3 friends that have never been before. I have been a customer for many years.   We ordered 2 orders of Maki and a drink each.  One friend found a hair WRAP AROUND a shrimp on her plate.  I immediately stood up, walked over and informed our server quietly.  She came over to tell us the "manager"...

The food and the show were good. The new building is so much nicer than their old location. So nice to see the upgrade. Now the place and the food are top notch.

Visited Umi with a very large group, (25ppl) very accommodating although we had advanced reservations (I would consider making reservations for any group over 2ppl or it could be a very long wait) The food was just ok, nothing spectacular at all, very bland. The decor also very bland & boring. However the show they put on is very entertaining... More

Myself and a friend ordered the steak and scallop hibachi and the maki sushi dinner. The sushi was some of the best I have had in the RI/Southeast MA area. The hibachi chefs put on a fun show and the steak was great, but the scallops were a bit over-done. The restaurant itself was in a really weird location and... More

Went here with 5 friends the other night, and had so much more fun than I thought I would!! The outside of the building doesn't look spectacular, but the inside was nice. The food was delicious, and the workers were very nice. You get a lot of food, which justifies the price, and it is great if you're going with... More

Sushi was OK. Service was terrible. "Oh, sorry we forgot." was a common response to our requests for "where's out food/drinks/water/etc.?" Net: Much better places nearby. Don't waste your time.

You pull up to this place and you'll wonder if there is any chance this could be any good. The restaurant is in a strip mall next to a real estate company, a consignment shop and something else. Last time I was there the parking lot was under construction and you had to go all around to park. But then... More
