A Hidden Gem

Ume is a hidden gem in Kelowna. Tucked away along Highway 97, this unassuming Japanese restaurant has been serving both locals and tourists alike for over a decade. So what makes Ume one of Kelowna’s best sushi places? Delicious food, fresh ingredients, and hard-to-beat prices. Whether you’re looking for a quick lunch on the go or want to enjoy a dinner in their quaint dining room, you’ll surely enjoy what Ume has to offer.


Ume’s diverse menu is filled with traditional Japanese fare that caters to preferences of all sorts. For sushi lovers, the restaurant serves a variety of rolls, including the famous Ume House Roll, Rainbow Roll, and Spicy Crunch Roll. The sashimi and nigiri are mouthwatering, featuring options like wild salmon, albacore tuna, and inari. The donburi and udon noodles are also a hit, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a cheaper bowl in town. The drink menu includes a range of sake, wine, beer, and unique Japanese soft drinks.

Service & Atmosphere

Along with the tasty food, Ume’s Service is second to none. Similar to the personalized customer service provided by a beloved local restaurant, Ume extends a warm approach to serving all its customers, making each person feel like family. The modest interior is decorated with a hint of Japanese tradition, and you can see the sushi chefs crafting your meal from the viewing window. In the warmer months, you can enjoy your meal under the warm Okanagan sun on their quaint patio, something we highly recommend on a summer evening. Ume also offers takeout and delivery, so you always have easy access to their delicious food!
