Great place to enjoy sushi. Very tasty selection of beers with your typical classics such as Sapporo and Kirin, to Elysian Space Dust IPA and Golden Road Mango Cart (5 stars for the beer alone... So good.) Got the Fireball (was so good, had to have it twice), Cougars (nice and artsy) and the Spider roll. Chef Brandon was very nice and friendly, you are sure to have a grand time dining at the bar if he is manning it!

Umami Japanese

Nestled in the heart of a vibrant new community called North City, a brand-new restaurant awaits you! Umami Japanese.

Umami (/u’ma:mi/,うま味) can be translated from Japanese as Deliciousness. It is also known as the fifth flavor after Sweet, Salty, Bitter and Sour. Umami is a rich and savory deliciousness that evokes a sensory and emotional experience of taste, harmony and satisfaction.

Umami Japanese is rooted in traditional Asian flavors that come alive with California’s culinary innovation. Inspired by the essence of fresh high-quality ingredients, gorgeous dishes are prepared with finesse, to artfully present our chef’s expression of well-balanced flavors.

Select from inventive Daily Special creations, including a delightful Chef’s Choice (Omakase) Menu, and a myriad of delicious and healthy dishes.

We invite you to join us and enjoy the rich flavors of Umami Japanese.

Bring your family, and friends. We also have a pet-friendly patio.

We look forward to serving you!
