Mei Ume offers authentic yet modern Chinese and Japanese cuisine from two distinct kitchens. Showcasing two of the greatest Asian cuisines under one roof, the restaurant includes a bar, lounge and table seating, as well as a private dining room for up to 13 people.

Under the guidance of Head Chef Tony Truong, the Chinese kitchen offers a wide variety of approachable dishes, including the signature Mei Ume Peking Duck, served according to tradition across two courses. Focusing on the quality of the ingredients, Sushi Chef Kyle Lee takes the helm of the Mei Ume Bar serving delicate, well-balanced sushi and sashimi alongside a selection of expertly crafted cocktails served by the talented bartenders. An extensive wine and sake menu complements the restaurant menu.

Private Dining

The private dining room is separated from the main restaurant by bamboo screen panels, which provide privacy whilst also retaining the atmosphere of the restaurant. This elegant room can seat up to 13 guests around a large central table, perfect for group dinners, corporate or private events.

We ordered the pork rib appetiser followed by half a Peking duck and lobster noodles. Quality of the food was good but the duck and the noodles arrived at the same time.
We decided to eat the noodles first but by the time we got to the duck, the pancakes were cold and stuck together.
I ordered a dessert and my partner received a complimentary dessert as it was his birthday dinner.

The food was a really good quality and the service was to a very high standard. The sushi was especially good as it had lots of different variations. The sake was also good. It started off with a strong spirit flavour and then slowly smoothed out.

Quickloy becoming my favourite restaurant, food is exceptional, ambience is perfect. The duck is the best I have ever had, Beijing included. Service could be better, just that little bit more attention, on the night of my last visit specifically from the sommelier. I find prices reasonable and adequate for the level of the place and the food, maybe a bit high for the cellar, although I admit, the wine list id of exceptional level. I will be back.

Quality had dropped since we went a year earlier for Valentine’s Day, more focus on main courses and less on dim sum and sushi which we loved last year. Unfortunately at £95 a head just for food we felt it was very over priced for the food. Staff were excellent but that wouldn’t justify the expense.

Everything was excellent apart from the music which was overpowering, it spoiled the experience.
People go to a restaurant for the food and usually to meet friends, family or business aquaintances but it would be difficult to talk over the loud music.
Instead of it being in the background it dominated the whole restaurant, they will not get their Michelin star like if they continue like that

Last minute booking in between Christmas and New Year. Food was excellent, soft shell crab, shrimp, hot and sour soup, chicken and beef mains. Had Dover Sole as well, which was the only disappointment. Great wine and cocktail selection, service was exceptional. We eat Asian food extensively and will definitely go to Mei Ume again!
