Positive reviews made us choose this trendy restaurant for an evening with friends with whom we had visited several Asian countries. The concept of shared dining made it possible to choose a lot of different dishes and enjoy them all. The price is very good for the great quality and taste of the dishes. Not only Japanese style, but also... More

I rate obviously relative to similar restaurant, not in absolute. This is as good as it gets in terms of value. Went there with a group. Despite being 10+, service was impecable. Everything was warm, served at the same time, tasty. You get to taste a bit of everything. Trendy atmosphere. Overall, very impressed with service given we were a... More

We ate different samall dishes, the concept is like asian tapas that are served not all at once so you have the time to talk and enjoy the evening. The price is very good we paid 30€ for two people more less 4 dishes pp included drinks. It is in the city center of Utrecht in a nice area at... More

We were in Utrecht just for a pause. It was the first attractive place we passed by that seemed to be open at a very uncommon time. It needed some time to find someone for service at aroung 3.00pm but once we have ordered we were quickly served and were really impressed by the creativity and quality of the food... More

Ok, this place is not terrible by any means. But 4 stars on trip advisor? The menu was interesting but I thought only every second dish was up to scratch. One or two were well below expectations. The service was also patchy, I ordered a gin and tonic and just received a glass of tonic. There were a few slip... More

You'll notice Umami is a formula: a trendy, colourful interior, lots of people, 'asianeuropean' food from an easy-to-pick menu, brought to you in a fast pace for a good price. Some will point out that it's crowdy or noisy, I prefer calling it lively. The food is not so much exquisite as it is symply tasteful and lovely. Price is... More

The concept of this restaurant is exceptionally good. All fresh ingredients and lots of taste. Shared food done very well. Value for money can not be better.

Umami is located at the main canal of Utrecht, perfect location for a hot summer day. After initial confusion about the menu, and the failure of the waiter to explain this, we have been served very interesting dishes, with a great value for money. The dishes look pretty and in some cases combine interesting ingredients. Most dishes seem to be... More
