    Good food. Felt like maybe a couple of front of house staff down (on a busy Friday evening) but they coped, everyone friendly and food good. Only moan is the menu is difficult to read (with slightly rubbish eyes - plus colour scheme, font and lighting).

    Sushi and gyoza were great but the ramen was really bland. This was the 4th time I’ve been and first time I’ve taken my friends. Sadly it’s quite disappointing and it didn’t feel like it was a good value for money. The service was great as usual though. Staff were friendly and efficient.

    Unacceptable!!! I was a regular visitor. Convinced my work colleagues including director to book Umai for dinner before our work night out. We arrived 6min late to be told by rude waitress that she sent sushi chef home already so we only can order ramen! I couldn’t believe it! Sooo embarrassed! We left. There was no apology, the waitress said "I thought you won’t come” NO COMMENT UMAI! SHAME ON YOU.

    sushi chef selection tasty though the fish toppings were on narrow, thin side. the Japanese cheese cake was certainly disappointing with not the slightest cheese flavour.

    We booked a table at a sushi restaurant only to get there and find out that they were out of tuna and out of salmon... Outrageous. Additionally, it seemed that they became under staffed at some point as there was only one waitress and the bartender who tried attending the table. There were 4 waiters earlier but 3 of them randomly disappeared for an hour. We ended up ordering ramen, my friend's borth was very underwhelming and lacked any basic spice. Both our ramens had sweetcorn which is something that I see for a first time and I can tell why. Their starters were very good, and the sashimi that some other tables had also looked nice but I am not finding out because I am never setting foot in that place again.

    Absolutely delicious food and really generous portions, we ordered far too much but ate it all. I'm now a sushi convert 😋 the tonkatsu ramen broth is so rich and flavourful and the pork super melty. Really friendly staff and a nice atmosphere,vwe will definitely be back.
