We absolutely loved visiting Umami. The waitress was very attentive, food came out extremely quickly and the atmosphere was perfect for our date night! Very reasonably priced for inner city styled restaurant. We are already planning our next visit!
Fantastic food coupled with fantastic service, I would definitely recommend Umami as a place to go.
Delicious food and cocktails - highly recommended trying this restaurant
Lovely staff and atmosphere too and great sake and whiskey tasting plates which I also recommend trying
The food was delicious and a really great atmosphere. The wine list needs some attention though. The rosé was ordinary and there are so many great affordable wines available. Those who like cocktails had lots of options though.
Great service and food, however the individual dishes were unfortunately quite slow to come out - it took over an hour from when we ordered our meals to all be served and we were the first people in the restaurant.
My first time coming here and I will definitely be returning. Food and drinks outstanding and the friendly waiters topped it all off. Would highly recommend.
I can't wait to come back to enjoy another amazing dinner. Such a great refreshing find and this place will be added to my list of places to eat frequently
Awesome food! And very accomodating staff. Will be back.
Outstanding food and faultless service, all at a price that won’t bust the bank. We’ll be back!
Food had good portions, the miso eggplant and popcorn chicken was delicious! Service was okay, had to flag them down a few times but they were friendly and accommodating. Would come back again.
Great food and berveraginos
Prices where as expected this wasn’t a hungry jacks !!!!
Comfortable dining area
Didn’t feel jam packed and riddled with covid nice and spaced out
Could even split the bill how good !!!
Xoxo thanks umami
The food was just so bad :( drinks were great tho!
Brilliant food and staff. Perfect date night for our anniversary
Amazing flavour, good variety to choose from, food and cocktails were great. Parking close by bonus. Will be back!!
It was ok. Not terrible but nothing special. The duck red curry was really good but 4 pieces of duck for a main I didn’t think was fair for the price. If I’m paying those prices, I expect better food.
Food and service were just amazing. Highly recommend the cocktails and sake tasting paddle
Great location for a fun dinner with friends, a business meal, or a romantic evening.
Miso salmon was too dry and overcooked. It is also overpriced. This price is similar to a 5 star hotel restaurant. Service was good and the saki was amazing.
Had a lovely time at Umami. The staff were so nice and lovely and the food was absolutely amazing. Definitely will be going again!
Fun setup. Excellent food & cocktails. We will be back.
The service was great! The dumplings were nice and mains generally good too but i feel for the price there wasnt much food. Look to spend 50 dollars pp
Struggled to get waiters attention a couple of times. But other than that was a lovely evening and food was amazing.
This restaurant is a must try. The atmosphere of the restaurant is perfect. All the dishes we tried were amazing. So full of flavour and well presented. You have to try some cocktails if you come here. They have clearly put a lot of thought into the menu. Service was good. Will be back for sure and will be telling people to try this place.
Such a beautiful meal!! I had to pay a $20 deposit for my reservation and it was meant to be deducted from the bill, that got missed but otherwise spectacular
Great food, service and vibe. 10/10 would recommend
First time going and we will absolutely be returning. Incredible food, great value and the atmosphere was really modern. Incredible impressed with our experience.
Great dining experience, especially loved the dumplings
Service was terrible
Beautifully prepared modern Japanese cuisine. Loved the ambience inside. Low lighting, lovely decor. Polite staff, just need better training in knowledge of wine, particularly vintage.
Always a lovely experience. Atmosphere was great. Such a cool
Vibe about it.
Food was amazing as usual. Our lovely waitress was so friendly.
We love share plates so perfect for us. All the plates were delicious, but the wings and duck curry was amazing!
Would highly recommend.
Great atmosphere, helpful staff and wonderful food and cocktails.
We loved it! The staff were so lovely and the food was delicious.
Great food, funky atmosphere and friendly staff! ......Dope Vibes!
Food was amazing. Great service and friendly staff
I’ve never been to Umami before but I will definitely be back. The Umami Espresso Martini is at a ridiculously good price that I ended up having more than I planned and is topped with condensed milk foam that is lightly torched to create a marshmallowy taste and texture. The mushroom dumplings were huge and so tasty and the Thai Green Curry was beautiful with tofu perfectly executed (yes, tofu has the ability to be executed well).
My friend enjoyed her food and cocktails too. I can’t remember the names of her cocktails but there was some rosemary smoke theatrics going on and some orange blossom fairy floss involvement on the other. Whatever you are, I’m here for it.
Plus we loved the decor and ambience. I even said to my friend that the music was at the perfect volume as to set the mood without being overbearing and invasive to table conversation.
All I have to say is: Noice one!
Fantastic food, wine, staff and vibe - Umami is now our “go to”!!
Great atmosphere, great service, great cocktails and great food.
Delicious food at a terrific venue. Very grateful that you were open through these difficult times.
I would definitely recommend.
Food was fantastic - I don't think there's a bad thing in the menu so it was difficult to choose what to order.
The cocktails were also amazing - different and lots of theatre in how they were served. A real experience.
Great food, friendly service & a good selection of drinks.
