    My son has longed to go to this restaurant for a long time and wanted to try oriental food for as long as I can remember He was not disappointed it was fantastic! Tasty well prepared and presentation was lovely portions were very good also Staff were very polite and helpful clearly explained everything from menu to drinks. They asked us how the food was but they were not intrusive like some staff can be, even explained the best value discounts also. They do daily discounts plus student NHS blue light cards amongst others so definitely great value for money Would most definitely recommend and return

    Amazing good and good friendly service. Food was presented well and lots of good choice and variety on menu. The prawn crackers although great quality are bit too overpowering with prawn smell, and we missed out on drinks offers as these weren't highlighted or shown to us, but otherwise great experience...we will be visiting again.

    I spent £151 for a table of 5. The service was absolutely appalling. I asked if the starters could be brought before the main courses. I was told no by the waiter the food comes out when it’s ready. As a result main courses came out first and were cold by the time we were served the starters. Everything was too much effort for the waiting staff we had to ask twice to order drinks. When we asked for dessert menu’s we were given one menu between five people. There are better value and more professional restaurants in Newcastle I would never visit this restaurant again.

    Umai MiResponded on 6 June 2022Thank you for taking the time to leave us a good review! We're sorry to hear the our lunch time menu was not available during your visit. We do have a note on the bottom of our lunch menu on our website which states 'We reserve the right to remove this offer at anytime'. This could be because of limited stock on the day. We recommend calling ahead to check to see if all our menus will be available during your next visit. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

    Food was pretty greasy and lacking in flavour, ramen was almost sickly (pork bone soup) and chicken wings literally the size of my little finger. Would not recommend and certainly not a patch on Wagammama.

    This could have been a 5 star with a few tweaks. We were seated and told someone would come for our drinks order. That didn't happen and so we ordered food and drinks at the same time. The food came first apart from 1 part of the order (pork dumplings) which didn't come until we had almost finished the rest of the food. These felt over steamed and perhaps had been forgotten about. I appreciate that no shows are difficult for the hospitality trade at the minute but to receive a text message 16 minutes before the booking to telling us that the table was ready, to check in now and text if we were on the way is over zealous. The rest of the food was excellent though and really enjoyable. Despite these gripes we would definitely visit again and would recommend trying here.

    Umai MiResponded on 18 May 2022Mike, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We're happy to hear you would visit us again and we will pass this feedback onto our team. We're sorry to hear that you were not informed of the waiting time for pork dumplings, they usually take 20 minutes to steam and take longer than our other dishes to reach our customers. We also don't control open table message preferences this is something you could look at in your account. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

    Worst time here yet! My partner and I usually love it here and have ate here loads. This time we waited 40 mins for our food to arrive (we ordered 2 mains and gyoza to start). I understand good is fresh and comes when ready. My partner ate his sushi main and by the time he was finished the other main and gyoza had still not arrived. When we asked the server (55 mins after we were seated) we were told the chicken katsu would be another 5 mins, and 10 mins for the gyoza. It is absolutely not acceptable to be left waiting that long and we were offered nothing else! We paid for the one main (sushi) and drinks we had and left - shocking service. No apology and no discount offered to return. Massively unimpressed.
