One of the best Mussel chowders I have ever had. Not gluggy and too thick like some other restaurants have. Real mussly flavour and vegetables that melted in the mouth. My wife had the pulled pork bao buns which were excellent and great value. Coffee is excellent as well. Well worth a stop if you're in coromandel town.

I just had coffee and cake but these were both nice and kids had ham and cheese croissants which they enjoyed. Clean and tidy and plenty of tables.

Lovely food and nice ambiance. New Zealand is full of wonderful little cafes and restaurants and this is another one that keeps up the standard.

Had a meal recently here and was impressed with the food and service. Friendly staff, plenty of choice on the menu and they were happy to adapt to individual tastes. My steak was very well cooked and had a very good variety of accompanying vegetables - nothing boring or mundane. My wife had the mussel platter which had a big... More

Umu is simply a gem! You can't go wrong with any of your choices there… Especially the coffee. The atmosphere is fun, filled with color and sound and unique people. A great place to spend a minute or an hour! Highly recommended!

We only stopped for afternoon tea, but they made a good impression immediately. My wife wanted tea and they offered a staggering range of options. I wanted a soda, and without any prompting from me they asked whether I would like a glass of ice for it? Yes I would, thank you, but this is the first time ever I... More

My wife and I just happened upon the restaurant. We relied on our server's recommendation for salad and pizza. We had the chicken slaw salad and chicken satay pizza. They were both very good.

Wide variety of menu - they have different menus for lunch and dinner, good thing about this place is they have free wi-fi, chatty staff, good ambience most especially during night time. I will definitely be back here.

Not much more than a takeaway with seating indoors and out. However it was well worth sitting in and enjoying some of the local seafood. Imaginative and well presented, freshly prepared dishes. The service was attentive and friendly.
