This is our favourite sushi place in London!!! ♥️ We are so happy to have a place so close to home that we'll walk in the rain and snow just to have their food. The owner is such a sweet and kind lady, who will always greet you with a smile! 😊
We usually order to go since it's a take out place but we dined in for the first time on Monday and it was as delicious as always. It only has two seats facing their window (so happy the window is back!) that faces Richmond St so it's a cute view and feels very intimate when you get to be the only ones sitting inside. We got complimentary miso soup and gyoza as well and we appreciated it so much! 🥰
🍣 The quality of the sushi is always fresh, and the portions are generous and proportionate - both with the rice vs filling ratio, and also with the fish vs other fillings ratio. Some sushi places will fill their rolls with more veggies than fish, but Umiya always makes sure it's more fish to veggies or equal parts. The roll feels balanced with the ingredients that are supposed to go in each roll as well!
Lastly, I love that they offer half rolls of the special rolls. It's such a great option when you don't want to have another full roll but you really want a special roll. I always get the Crispy Spicy Salmon Classic Roll + a half roll of Philly, and my partner will get the Crispy Spicy Tuna Classic Roll + a half roll of Red Dragon. Their spicy mayo is so good! And the ratio of cream cheese to salmon in the Philly is perfect. My partner's also tried their Fire Lips Special Roll and they would highly recommend it to people who like spicy! 🔥
We have nothing but amazing things to say about this place and hope it's here for a long time. Every now and then we'll go to a different sushi place because we like trying new places, and we always compare it to Umiya.
