Excellent service (a charming girl from Madrid and someone who looked like the manager).
We were there after 7 pm. Had difficulty finding it as we had missed the entrance to the shopping centre. It was very quiet. Nice cold Ashai draft beer and jasmine flower tea. Food came quickly. Fresh and tasty. Good value.

The food wasn’t great, the drinks came with 2 small shards of ice and the cup was enormous compared to the tiny bottle of lemonade. I felt that the chicken was under cooked and I questioned if it was 100% chicken breast. The service was not horrendous however, there was 2 tables in the entire restaurant and we still never got the tap water we asked for when we went to leave.

You can taste the difference at Umai Mi. We ordered the Salmon Rolls, Vegi Sushi Set and the Shanghai Soup Pork Dumplings. All extremely delicious, fresh and MUCH better quality and quantity than Yo ‘rip off’ Sushi. Decent price too.we also had the Jasmine Flowering Tea and a desert. total bill came in at £42 for 2 people. Great value! Lovely service, excellent value and quality all round. Only niggle is the location, people walking past every 5 seconds in a fast paced, not-so-relaxed atmosphere.

Me and my partner were out celebrating our anniversary and I am so glad we decided to go to Umai Mi.

The service from Gabriel was second to none. He was very attentive and polite throughout. He wore a mask and was socially distant, which put me at ease immediately.

The other staff who we interacted with were equally as polite and efficient as the restaurant got busier.

The food was absolutely fantastic and the portions were very generous. So much so we may have underestimated and ordered too much! Either way the quality of the food was beautiful and very enjoyable.

Overall our experience was fantastic and we will certainly be returning again.

Staff were very friendly and efficient , food took no time at all , we were advised it comes out when it’s ready so we may get our meals separately, but they came out within seconds of each other so ate together. Only thing was steamer wasn’t working , had read about that in previous reviews too , was looking forward to having Bao buns , but what we had instead was delicious . No prawn crackers so two of the things we would of had were not available but that didn’t ruin a lovely meal . Very clean and covid secure .
