The quality of the beef, freshness of vegetables, and terrific flavor a make this an unusually good kosher Asian restaurant. The pad Thai is out of this world! Service is not necessarily with a smile, but it's pretty quick.

The food here is top notch. I have never per se had a bad meal here. The biggest threat to the evenning can be that 'brown sauce' that seems to be in almost every menu item. Sometimes the food or sauce just comes out bland. The food is good, but little taste. I guess it's better than other places that... More

I visited here for the first time with a business colleague on our way to a meeting in Baltimore. Restaurant is in a strip center and the restaurant seems to have a good flow of customers. We went here twice in one day (which tells you a bit about our opinion). We went here for lunch. Fair prices, fresh food,... More

Have eaten here several times. Food was always most tasty and fresh - light in texture and not weighed down in oil. They also have free-refills on soda which is nice and a bar. Service is friendly, though slow especially when busy. They can use some more people on the floor. Prices are fair and portions are large. We plan... More

Shocked at the poor reviews about service - we were greeted by a man that was extremely friendly and pleasant and our waitress was awesome. She gave great service, was very happy and hilarious. She was cracking jokes with us and I could see her interacting with other guests that are clearly regulars - forget her name but she appeared... More

As an orthodox jew, their are very few options for restuarant choices. I happen to love Asian cuisine whether it be Japanese, Chinese or Thai. When I first went to this restaurant two years ago I was impressed with their ecclectic offerings of asian dishes. The price was a bit high but the food was delicious. I have been to... More

Umami Bistro serves Japanese and Chinese style cuisine that is kosher. They have a large selection and some vegetarian and lower calorie choices as well. I've eaten there several times after a friend recommended it to me. My experience has been mixed but leaning more on the positive side. It is quite crowded after 5:30-5:45 PM on Sundays so if...
