UMI Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar hoping to open next month in east Wichita


Back in March, we broke the news that UMI Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar was potentially coming to Wichita to take over the former Sumo space at 11233 E. 13th St. N.

It’s time to provide an update.

Over the last five months, it was confirmed UMI was indeed coming and renovating the Sumo space. And it appears, the work is near completion. After speaking with one of the owners, they are targeting an opening date before Thanksgiving. It’d be an ideal time for them as it’ll be right before the holidays with families coming into town looking for places to eat.

If you’ve never been to UMI Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, the closest location can be found in Manhattan, KS. The restaurant has teppanyaki grills similar to Sumo where meals are prepared right in front of you. There’s also sushi and wok cooking available on the menu.

I’m told lots of money and time were given to transforming the building with a new look.

Until then, a webpage is already up where you can peruse through the menu at Stay tuned for more.
