    First time to visit Umai and it was very good, from the staff to the food. We would certainly recommend Umai to others and we will be back again.

    Amazing food and service! I had been craving sushi for so long and it was the best I've had in a long time. I had the 52 pieces with a friend, amazing taste great portion sizes and variety for a very convenient price. Floor staff was kind attentive and fast. Can't wait to be back again, thank you for the amazing time.

    Pleasant environment and great service. Plenty of meat in the Ramen. The waiter's recommendations were very good and he provided chilli oil for the Ramen which definitely enhanced the flavour. He also gave us a free sample of Sake when we mentioned it was a drink we hadn't tried before. We will come back here another time for sure.

    It's great as always. We had ramen this time rather than the sushi and it was so wonderfully tasty and savoury. It was my birthday and we received a free dessert which was lovely. Staff were very nice and the ambience is always chill and nice.

    Not what was expected, the fried food was over done almost inedible (definitely using old/over heated oil), the chefs choice was conveniently all the cheapest cuts of fish… definitely not a Japanese dining experience.

    This place has never disappointed me. But I must say this time was a little disappointed as had written on my booking that it was birthday dinner but nothing was mentioned while we were in. It’s my favourite sushi place where I take friends and family. The manager there (I seem to forget his name all the time ) he is so welcoming and looks after everyone so well. Food is super delicious.

    The food is very good and the service is excellent. Another review suggested it was ‘on par’ with similar food in Japan. Although I am yet to try the food in Japan, I am inclined to agree. It’s very much worth visiting and trying out!
