Welcome to Umami – experience the fifth taste!!!
the food was nice, the service was nice and it was an enjoyable evening.
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.
Good service and the food was a little different from usual Indian restaurant fare but tasty. Dessert was okay. Will visit again.
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.
Umami provides a Good range of well produced tasty food with prompt but not obtrusive service
Great Valentines evening! Delicious food and fabulous service. Shall be returning very soon.
Great food and great service
Really good tasty food, fantastic service from all the staff. Was really helpful towards my food allergy. would definitely visit again when next in the area.
Heaven on a plate 😋 wonderful food, as good if not better than Lasan
Been loads of times. It gets better and better!
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.
In short. Amazing from start to finish. !!! I will definitely be visiting again whenever I can. Wonderful staff amazing food
Always great food ,the service is second to none ,staff are fantastic ,friendly ,polite and very professional ,would recommend to anybody who loves an authentic Indian meal ,wants good value for money and fantastic food and choices
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!
My Husband and I have been to Umami many times. The service and the food are always amazing. On the most recent visit, we were celebrating my husbands birthday. The staff really went out of their way to make the night memorable. We will definitely be back!
Excellent service, staff really friendly and top class tasty dishes
Amazing night as usual... champagne cocktails are epic
We will keep going back

Excellent quality food, great ambience, friendly staff. Overall highly recommended for innovative curry
Very nice staff, great ambience and quality food. Price a little dear - but really good quality nonetheless.
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.
Food is amazing, but expect to wait a while for it. This was my second visit and we even had to wait 10 minutes to even be given a menu!
The staff were friendly and happy to answer questions and the food was melt in the mouth excellent.
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.
Great service, lovely food as always. Highly recommend to all
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.
Excellent customer service and really nice food!
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.
Really good Speed the waiter was very attentive and is a credit to the team.
Excellent food and service as usual, not the cheapest place in town but you will not find many better for food and service
Excellent food and prompt. friendly service. This restaurant is up with the best Indian restaurants in Birmingham.
