Umi Japanese Restaurant: "Authentic Japanese in Hickory" Top 5 Page for this destination Hickory Restaurant Tip by Hexepatty

Hickory Restaurants: 17 reviews and 15 photos

Zen like atmosphere, small, intimate and relaxing. Amazing food. Sushi was fresh and artfully presented. I had katsu curry and fiance had beef and sweet onions over rice. Both were spot on perfection.

It is special because it is the ONLY Japanese Restaurant in Hickory with real Japanese food. And if you are a Japanese foodie, don't think the other restaurants in town are Japanese. They are not.

Favorite Dish: I really liked the katsu curry and look forward to the other items on their menu.
