went to shumi sushi in somerville this past sunday. they are supposedly #1 in the state for sushi (according to nj newspaper). had salad special app and sushi for dinner. i dont know what all the fuss is abt.. the salad was the best part. sushi was small and slightly mushy for tuna. my boyfriend had sashimi platter and loved it. what are your opinions??

      Surprising. It's been a few months, but every time I've been there (3-4 times a year, since I tend to spend the bucks and go all Omakase), I've been very pleased.

        Hi! I'm thinking of trying out Shumi for a birthday dinner. Could you give me an idea of how much the omakase costs for two people?

          I posted a negative review of Shumi several months back and the consensus was that Im nuts. But Im with you - my experience was the food was actually terrible. Theyve opened AIkou sushi in Flemington, and while it will not (or shouldnt anyway) win any prizes for best in state, it has proven vastly superior to Shumi - my advise is to go there. Im open to any other places is the Hunterdon are for sushi if you have any advice!
