Sushi
At a young age, Chef Cong began his culinary career as a commercial tuna fisherman. Working in the Gulf set his standards high to only serve the freshest ingredients and locally sourcing when possible. His travels and training under many great chefs inspired him to create his own interpretation of Japanese and Southeast Asian cuisine. His love affair with food could be tasted through his cooking. When the opportunity came to open his own restaurant, his culinary baby UMAMI was born. We strive daily to bring creative modern takes on sushi and Japanese cuisine to Baton Rouge. Discover a new flavor, U M A M I . It's what your taste buds have been longing for. umami: a loan word from the Japanese which can be translated as a "pleasant savory taste," is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness and saltiness).

    Literally the best sushi I’ve had in Baton Rouge. I have probably tried 70% of the restaurants in Baton Rouge for sushi and I am very impressed. The rolls were so fresh. The service was amazing and my boyfriend doesn’t even like Brussel sprouts and the appetizer I got was that. He ate all of it. 10/10 this is my new spot.

    The food was excellent, as always. The waitstaff may have been a bit overwhelmed even though there were less than 12 tables & there were 3 severs, a bartender & hostess. So I’m not sure how that happened. It took 2 different severs 20 minutes to get our drinks & then another 15 minutes to take our food order. Regardless, the food was good enough to outweigh the lack of service.

    Most of the beers on tap were out, fountain drinks were flat. I brought this up to our waitress and she did not replace or remove the flat drink from our tab. Opted for water instead. Food was great, oyster shots were fun. The heater may have been out, several floor heaters were out in the dining area. Wear a coat!

    My husband and I had a rare night alone. The sushi was superb! Fast, friendly service and fresh rolls! Wish it wasn’t in the middle of college town but we enjoyed it very much.

    Sexiest Woman Alive roll is the best. Of all the sushi places in the US that I’ve been to, this roll is at the top. Great place that everyone should try.
