It was my son's 21 birthday. The food was exquisite and the service was excellent. Wonderful place to have friends and family around. I highly recommend one to pay a visit and to try it out. As a Malaysian, I found that the Chef was...More

The reception was very welcoming, the decor and ambiance very acceptable. The meals were very well cooked and tasty. The table service given with a smile and attention. We will return.

At Umami they have Malaysian chefs unable to make Malaysian. The Beef Rendang tasted like an English stew cooked to, no, far beyond death, with some indiscriminate sauce added, the worst dish we had. The Singapore Curry Laska was the least bad, marred by egg...More

UMAMI offered a wonderful menu of fresh Asian/Thai choices in pleasant, vibrant but calm surroundings. From the moment we entered, the service at the front door and at our table was exceptional and prices were reasonable.

We were staying next door to this place and were sold when it offered a pre-theatre menu between 5-7pm. Even better was the 20% off the total bill when you booked through BookaTable.com. We were really pleased that we opted to have dinner here before...More

Had dinner here on a very warm June evening. Could not fault food or service, just wish the air conditioning had been working.

Umami was a nice relaxing surprise after the chaos of a busy day in London. Well composed dishes with just the right level of spice. The green chicken curry was decadent and even the green beans as a side were well prepared. The service was...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
