Visiting the day Hurricane Michael came through. It was our first time here. The food and the chef were phenomenal. The service was slow but that may have been due to staffing issues. Everyone working was very friendly. We would recommend for the food.

We have eaten at several japanese restaurants in Winston and Greensboro but we wanted a different presentation. Sometimes it seems the cooks just do the same things each time you go. So we made the drive to Burlington and it was worth it. The food...More

I ate here Saturday with my family for my birthday dinner. The service was great. Everyone was friendly, especially the cook who was funny. The food was also delicious. They give you tons of food. I would definitely be returning.

While visiting my in-laws we came to umami for a birthday celebration. The place is a little worn but the food was great. I love the change in noodles and rice and the veggies were delicious. This is also one of the few places like...More
