Sushi should be fresh, beautiful, and delicious. Umenoki passes the test. Although the size of the pieces on each plate reflect the low price, the quality of the sushi overflows the track.

I personally really like Umenoki for their great value and the service. Mr Lee (Li?) is very nice and his Dragon Roll is the most beautiful sushi roll I have ever seen! For $12 incl tip I can go in and get stuffed on Unagi, Inari and

I went to Umenoki by Mall 205 because my brother said most plates are only $1. I went with my boyfriend to try it out. The pieces were really tiny. Yes, yes, consider how cheap it is, I should be more forgiving, but Sushiland's Tamago (egg) and Crab Salad are also $1, and it's much bigger and better. Aside from the portion of the food, the taste was bland. My boyfriend said the wasabi tasted like Chinese hot mustard, but thicker and green.

The service--at first it was alright. The waitress checked on us twice. Kudos to them. However, when we were done with dinner, we waited for a long time for someone to get our check. No one was near. I even stood up to attract their attention, however they are nowhere to be seen. Frustrated, we went to the counter to hoping they will notice us. Someone did. Yeah! She was standing in front of us but didn't ask when our needs were, but instead she helped another table for 5 minutes or so to put their sushi in the container. (Do they not have hands!? They do. They can do it themselves.)

When the attention was finally to us, she asked if we wanted an order to-go. We told her we want to pay. Let me explain what's my problem with that--there were only 3 group of parties there, it wasn't busy, you can see everyone in the restaurant, and she managed to be inattentive! We paid our dinner and left.

My boyfriend and I are NEVER going back to Umenoki again. Never again.

Pros: Parking, $1 sushi.

Cons: Service, food, service, upholstery, and service.

We have been visiting Mr. Lee at Umenoki since they opened. We do miss them on Sundays since that is the only day my fiance and I have off together. This was the place where I first introduced my fiance to sushi and he swears he won't eat sushi anywhere else. It's a family atmosphere and everybody knows your name, well not your name but at least they remember you. We have been bringing our son since he was born, he is 3 now and they are so sweet to him. He even knows Mr. Lee's name. Of course he loves it.

Yes, we were saddened when the frequent user stamp cards were taken away but its worth it. I wouldn't say they have the BEST sushi in town but for the price and in the area you can't beat it.

My only complaints are, the upholstery on the chairs is a bit on the dirty side, I would've chosen a chair that is easily wiped off. They are also pretty low for the table height. Second, the bathroom doors are filthy looking, either a fresh coat of paint or those bad boys need a good scrubbing. Third, from an interior designers perspective, low hung pendant light above the table and going around the sushi bar would be very attractive and would make the space more comfortable. Something is definitely missing and I'm pretty sure that would do the trick. Perhaps a nice small cobalt blue glass pendant. Hopefully they read this and take my advice.

But of course, regardless of this, we'll be back.

Pros: Great staff, sushi & price

Cons: dirty furniture & restroom doors

Some of the best sushi my wife and I have enjoyed. The service was slow due to the number of patron to people but it gave us time to talk and eat more then we wanted.

I have been going to Umenoki for a few years and I love their sushi. Everyone has always been exceptionally nice and helpful. I really wanted sushi one sunday and they were closed and I paid twice as much and was seriously dissapointed. I would definitely reccomend Umenoki, the only complaint I have is their spicy tuna roll is way too spicy! But that could just be personal taste.

Pros: Rarely busy, good prices and wide selection.

Cons: Closed on Sundays, sushi chef never talks (kinda creepy)

ordered a variety of sushi rolls to go, and they were all filled with a nearly identical disgusting fake crab mix.

Pros: none.

Cons: yucky.

In this neighborhood, finding quality food is hard to find. In a dim sum style, food is passed along a conveyor, and with reasonable prices, you can get a choice of sushi, miso soup, or green tea ice cream. My family has been visiting this restaurant since they opened, and we have never been treated rudely, even when I had difficulty sitting due to a foot injury.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to any in the area, or any passing through. It's a choice place to get some sushi on the go.

This is the best pick in a neighborhood devoid of good food. It is sushi on a conveyor belt. The variety is slim, perhaps because there are not a lot of customers. The sushi is acceptable, but much better at Sushiville on NW 23rd.
The service is really nasty. So far the owner screamed at an employee in front of the customers, a waitress accused me of forging a Korean signature on a frequent customer card and the owner will haggle of 25 cents about whether to give you an extra stamp.
