Having booked into the Crown Plaza for 3 nights, we had already arranged various lunches/dinners out and about during our long weekend in London. Imagine our surprise then to find Umami in the Hotel! We scuttled in without booking on a Friday night and came out 3 hours later, thoroughly thrilled with our doorstep gem. Staff were extremely knowlegeable, not at all stuffy, and ready to accomodate a Coeliac guest. Within seconds, a Coeliac menu appeared and there were some surprising items on it - like fishcakes - which were excellent and not something I would generally have ordered as usually they are padded out with flour and/or breadcrumbs. Not these, authentically Thai, fully flavoured and a good sized serving. The other entree we chose was squid and I can honestly say, this is the best squid I have ever had, to the extent that next time we are in London, reagrdless of where we stay, we will go back to Umami, if only for the squid. Main courses also excellent, we did not have pudding as too full. Wine choices were limited but good value for money and the advice on Wine from the staff was plentifull and knowleageable.
