Further Information

Umami, translating to ‘a pleasant savoury taste’ is centred around the concept of Feng Shui. This affects all aspects of this South Kensington restaurant from the food to the decor and to the service. The food is where Umami really shines, and you’ll find all the key elements of Asian cuisine shining through the dishes here. What we mean by that is, expect a perfect balance of sweet, salty, bitter and sour. Start your Umami affair with servings of chicken satay sticks smothered in that famous sweet peanut sauce; tempura lychee stuffed with minced prawn and chicken and Thai-style mussels and prawns tossed with basil, chilli and peppercorns. Tempted yet?

Then, it’s time to take your pick between all the curries, soups, salads and noodles. If you’ve a hankering for a curry, the gang ga-ri goong Thai yellow curry with king prawns and butternut squash goes down a treat, while noodle fans should keep an eye out for the laksa loaded up with prawn and chicken. With plenty more besides, including some stellar chef’s recommendations, Umami is one of the best dining experiences you’ll find in London. You’ll find this Asian haven on Cromwell Road in South Kensington, where you should also be sure to check out the carefully curated wine list to round it off just perfectly.

"Excellent"6/6

Excellent service, nicely decorated and the food was amazing! Staff were very attentive and whilst it was early and quiet the chef came and spoke to us. We were very impressed

"Good"4/6
LEIGH L.13 days ago · 1 review

Food more than passable, especially the soup, but we were rather put off by the girl at the ‘front of house’, whose paperwork was obviously more important than greeting customers. She ignored us for a good minute before one of her colleagues stepped in

"Great"5/6

Good food, nice service, restaurant not too bright. It's no thrills but overall a good experience... have the seabass. Ginger ice cream also good, as are the fish cakes

"Okay"3/6
Silvio R.15 days ago · 3 reviews

Die Speisen waren okay wenngleich auch aber etwas fade. Allerdings ließ der Service doch deutlich zu wünschen übrig. Im generellen schien man eher weniger Interesse am Gast zu haben!
