surprising Japanese-Dutch fusion food

Umami was recommended to me by the local hotel staff, who also go to this restaurant. Although in the typical touristic center, the concept works well - you can choose among the menu and only sign up for the number of courses (1-5) that you plan. You receive a slip with a pen, on which you mark the... read more

We had a lovely time here with friends. This is an Asian restaurant with a French approach when it comes to portions. You can choose 2 small portions during each round. For a Dutch restaurant the price is reasonable. The food tastes nice and the staff is friendly. However the air circulation is badly managed. Your clothes smell teribbly after... More

A good range of really nice food here, the all you can eat for 25 Euros is good value, with all the food cooked fresh to order. Menus are printed in both Dutch and English.

This very reasonably priced Asian fusion restaurant offers good food that's nicely presented. Some of the dishes were rather bland, however, and we have had better versions of this kind of cuisine elsewhere. The service was a bit lackadaisical, and the space itself is visually not particularly interesting. With bare walls, sound traveled too easily. The rock music being played... More

I visited this restaurant with friends during lunch hour, made reservations beforehand and we arrived there a little bit earlier but had to wait a while for the waiter/person-in-charge. The ambience is rather nice, trendy modern restaurant with somewhat asian to european fine dining crossover concept. For lunch, there is only a short list of available dishes other than the... More

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
