Opened in Aug of 2000, Umi Sushi Bar and Grill is the dream and vision of Brian Mao to have an establishment that is both hip and authentic with a refreshing atmosphere high in energy and dedication. His dream lives on for in his memory this restaurant has retained its integrity
through the sole proprietorship of Mei Mao, a local austinite who you can find kicking back daily with the loyal patrons. Why do they come back? Because there's always something new to try, the way of the world is ever changing but remembrance is important for they define who we are.
Each new wave brings with it fresh, vibrant change. Such is the vision Brian Mao had when he chose the name UMI (ocean in Japanese) for his restaurant in 2000. The experience of sushi both new and tasty is what UMI now embodies, and with appointment of General Manager Andre Dinata, who's been running UMI since 2005, UMI can finally usher in the wave of fine dining without sacrificing quality.
UMI not only serves quality sushi and sashimi, but also has a full bar complete with three televisions for game nights.
