I’ve been looking for a good local sushi spot in Las Vegas and decided to check out Umami. It’s been recommended to me several times, but the restaurant is a bit of a hike from where I live. After putting it off for a while, I finally got around to trying Umami.
Aside from Yelp, there isn’t much information available about Umami online, so I decided to share my experience here. This article will cover everything you need to know about Umami Las Vegas, including the menu, prices, location, and how to make a reservation.

Umami All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Price
Umami Sushi allows you to order an all-you-can-eat (AYCE) menu or a la carte. I recommend that you get the AYCE menu since it has nearly 100 different sushi dishes. When ordering AYCE, Umami charges a different price depending on the time of day that you visit.
- Lunch – $25.95 (11:30 am – 4:00 pm)
- All-Day – $29.95 (11:30 pm – 11:00 pm)
The lunch and all-day menus are nearly identical, however, there are a handful of additional dishes on the all-day menu (I’ll talk about this later). Also, kids between the ages of 4 and 7 get a 50% discount.
If you decide to go with the all-you-can-eat menu, there are some rules that Umami enforces:
- There’s an 80-minute time limit
- An 18% gratuity is automatically charged to groups of 5 or more
- No sharing (unless all party members get AYCE)
- Leftovers are charged (so order a little at a time)

Umami Restaurant Contact Information & Reservations
Umami Sushi Las Vegas no longer takes reservations over the phone. You have to show up in person to make a reservation, so expect a wait time of 30 minutes to an hour. If you have a large group, you can try to call ahead, but I have found it to be very difficult to get Umami on the phone (I included their phone number below).
You can find Umami just north of Summerlin, at 6640 N Durango Dr. It’s located directly next to the Vitamin Shoppe. If you’re coming from the Las Vegas Strip, it’s roughly a 20-minute drive.
Umami Restaurant Las Vegas is open from 11:30 am to 11:00 pm. I find them to be the busiest around 6 to 7 pm. There is also normally a lunch rush around 1 pm. If you’re looking to get seated quickly, you should avoid those times.
Umami Sushi is not related to the failed Umami Burger at Sahara Las Vegas. Umami Burger was closed in late 2019.

Is AYCE Sushi at Umami Las Vegas worth the Price?
The food at Umami is excellent, but the service can be a bit slow at times. This is the complete opposite of Umami’s sister restaurant, Sakana Sushi, where the servers are much quicker.
Overall, Umami Las Vegas is a fantastic spot to grab top-notch sushi on a budget. If you live in the northern part of Las Vegas, this should be your go-to sushi spot. If you live closer to Spring Mountain, you may want to try ITs SUSHI.
