Our experience was okay. There were no menus to look at so we were directed to look online at their food menu.
We were brought the wrong drinks to begin with but that was sorted quickly enough.
The food we ordered was good but not exceptional. We were waiting a long time to order and for each course to arrive.
Would still go again. Maybe a lacklustre experience this time.

We have eaten at Umai Mi five or six times (plus the odd take out), and the food and service are always excellent. We would recommend the sushi and sashimi especially. Also, they’re doing a great job regarding the current COVID-19 situation, requesting we all use sanitiser, keeping tables well spaced and cleaned, and employing a track & trace policy. Will be returning for sure.

We had a lovely meal here a few days ago and we were really impressed. The COVID measures were all in place plus we were asked on arrival if we had any dietary requirements or allergens and they asked again upon taking our order. We were very impressed with the vegan options and the food was delicious. The staff were excellent and very friendly and knowledgeable about the food. It was a nice atmosphere inside too. Overall we were very impressed and will be returning 😊

First time visit but what a great experience. Brilliant service and hospitality from Mohamed from the beginning to the end. Busy lunch but served very well. Mohammed helped with the menu and provided with some great choices.
Great Asian food, loved baos and king prawn soup.
Highly recommended will be back.

Some of the food was delicious. Some was not, the staff were helpful when I needed to swap my main dish as it didn’t come as described. The service was quite poor, we ordered dessert and waited for 45 minutes before leaving without one. One of the staff didn’t have their face covering over their nose which didn’t make me us feel very safe. Overall, it was a disappointing experience, especially given it was out wedding anniversary. I would advise people to avoid.

Advertise menu options as Starts. Which then arrive 10 minutes after your main to be told this is normal. You need to adapt Japanese food with british service
