    Our first visit but it won't be our last! I had the daily special which was really tasty - when you can cut lamb with a fork you know it's going to be good. Every dish on the menu was different, none of the usual run-of-the-mill dishes. Four of us dined, we all chose differently and we all enjoyed the food. The service was friendly and efficient too. Will definitely return.

    The food was lovely and this time the service was efficient - last time it was terribly slow! It was very noisy in there - but possibly just down to one rowdy group. Would definitely book again!

    The food was absolutely fantastic, the restaurant was very busy and no wonder why but the food quality did not suffer as a result. The food isn't cheap but you pay for what you get and if you like Indian food you will not be disappointed.

    Excellent service. We were greeted by the Manager on arrival by our names. Felt really personal. Throughout the whole evening, staff were attentive and ensured we had everything we wanted. Food was ready in good time with just enough time for the next course arrive. Customer service is clearly important to them. Ten out of ten for effort. Will definitely be going back again and would recommend it for all occasions. A lot of restaurants could learn a lot from these guys.

    Really enjoyed our visit. Celebrating our wedding anniversary with our daughters, the food was really tasty albeit some of the portions were a bit small. The staff were great if maybe slightly over attentive at times. About £30 pp for two good courses was relatively good value. We will definitely be going back for another meal!

    This place is our favourite place to eat Indian food in the UK. It has a good atmosphere, the staff are all lovely and the food is exceptional. They seem to remember everyone's name and all the dishes and dips are very, very fresh and delicious. Highly recommended.

    We were not told when we booked or when the booking was re confirmed 2 days before our visit that we could only order form a set menu because it was New Years Eve. The set menu was very average considering the reviews I read before hand and no reflection of what looked like a really interesting normal menu. The starters arrived before our cocktails, they forgot to bring the complimentary bubbly until half way through the meal and the sweet came without coconut kulfi as advertised. The staff were very nice though and we did feel welcome.

    This is an Indian restaurant with a difference. Their pre dinner cocktails are well worth trying and when you get to the table, the menu gives you an interesting choice of Indian al a carte cuisine or one of their set menus ( pre fix) of various starters and delicious main courses. Well worth a visit.

    Disappointing overall. Not enough staff on duty (seemed overwhelmed) one of our party had to wait at least 20 mins after we'd all been served as they'd forgotten her order..when it came it was the wrong dish. My 'on the bone' dish came without bones but appeared to have been cooked on a skewer (maybe wrong dish?) Very expensive we all thought. Wifi not working properly when we came to pay, took everyone an age to be processed. Went when it first opened and thought it excellent but would hesitate to visit again. Standards seem to have slipped somewhat unfortunately. Would love to be more positive but I'm just trying to give an honest review.

    We visit Umami regularly. It never disappoints, although the wine list has changed and the loss of the previous gewurtztraminer is a shame.

    service was a bit over enthusiastic upon arrival and felt a little stifled from the constant hovering over our shoulder. Then once the restaurant had gotten busier and we got to the end of our meal, the service disappeared. We weren't asked if we wanted another drink or even a dessert or coffee.

    Have been wanting to visit since it opened but never had a good reason. So when I decided to go on a date i picked here. Relaxed atmosphere, Attentive staff and a wide section of none acholic drinks the food was great and the bill pleasantly surprised up. I'd come here again.
