Outstanding food! If you want food at the very highest level then this is the place. Extremely well cooked. Just on another level. Expensive but top food comes with a price. Really well done to the staff and chefs. Excellent restaurant which I recommend highly. FIVE STARS!!!!!!!

The vegetarian menu was quite repetitive with 4 consecutive dishes with the same vegetables cooked in slightly different ways, with a lack of focus on any one particular vegetable or technique, so doesn’t really stand up to a measure of tasting menu. Service was as nothing special. A poor experience by any standard let alone for a Michelin starred restaurant

Beautiful place with amazing friendly staff. Food was decent, although I was expecting a little more. Nevertheless, I had a really enjoyable night. We went for the Winter Kaiseki Menu, love the prawn and monkfish, and the dessert was amazing.

We travelled all the way from Scandinavia to try out this restaurant.

Was welcomed in a nice way and felt great hospitality and kindness - but nothing outstanding. Definitely not taking into consideration that restaurant was more or less empty, when we arrived.

We ordered the lunch-menu. We got some great tastes, but having visited Japan several times, I must admit, that UMU was just on level, with average lunch-restaurants in Tokyo or Kyoto.

The reason we came to London was to get an extraordinary food experience. We didn't get that! At the end of the day, our most memorable experience was the tea (for which we paid an additional sum of pricey 50£). Not okay. And no Michelin stars worthy.

Maybe if we had ordered the full menu. Maybe if we had been there another day? We don't know.

For the price everything was quite underwhelming, overall it was pleasant but for a similar cost you could experience something that would have created a far more memorable time.

We asked for a sushi and sashimi platter to be made. It was well presented and introduced. Lovely service and such a nice ambience.

Fish was very overcooked and dry. Sushi was average.
