Umiya

Umiya (formerly known as Kaizen) on Flamingo Rd & Arville St has quite an interesting AYCE sushi menu.  Other than sushi and seafood items, an array of Japanese foods are featured like Monkey Brain. I wasn't adventurous enough to eat Monkey Brain, I don't know if I ever will!

Another great thing about Umiya is when you are an AYCE sushi patron, you have the choice of having all you can drink alcohol for just $10 more!  There's a set menu for that also.  You can choose certain sakes, wines, and beers... What a deal!!

Our sushi chef, Eric, was nice to give my friend
and I custom rolls based off our favorite fishes.
This was my hamachi special roll :)
This roll came with red onions, tobiko (flying fish
roe), shrimp tempura, green onions, and a special
sauce...  Such a wonderful combo!

A lovely picture of our sushi chef,
he was so funny!

not included in the AYCE menu :o

A daily special- I think this was
grilled ahi

Proof!

Left- Lychee Saketini (a chilled cocktail that
uses sake, simple syrups, spirits, liqueurs, etc.

Right- Japanese Lasagna, this baked roll was
quite cream cheesy and had this nice sauce
on top!

This is one of my favorite AYCE sushi joints in Las Vegas!  Umiya has awesome food and service.  I'll definitely be visiting this place often!

***Edit: As of 1/24/13, All You Can Drink is no longer available. It is replaced by the new special, 'Buy 2 Get 1 Free drinks'. This includes Beer, Sake (House & Premium), and Soju.
