“Great place, great concept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

You get 3 menu concepts to choose from. Good food in a great place!!! Not the best sushi, but we loved the king crab, chinese bacon, chiken with orange and porc with honey.

“Delightful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We were walking around for a place to have lunch and it called our attention this place.
What an unexpected surprise!!! The place was just perfect, the atmosphere and decoration really neat and clean.
Food delicious, well presented, perfectly cooked and tasty.
Staff really helpful and kind.
Affordable value considering the price of the rest of the restaurants.
Definitely one of the best places that I´ve been in the city.

“Excellent money value restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Excellent value, the restaurant is very well decorated creating a very elegant treat that serves as starter for an experience to come. The service is impeccable along with a very tasty food that is beautifully presented. Let be guided by the staff and allow yourself a little oriental treat with a twist. Definitely will be back and I´d love to have this establishment closer to visit it more often.

“A gem...wish I could take Umami home with me!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I am not a big reviewer but had to write about this place. I can heartily echo the positive reviews below, and add that I would rate this place up there with David Chang's restaurants Momofuku and Saam Bar in NYC. Seriously. An absolutely incredible value in terms of the price for what you get. Fresh, innovative, wonderful presentation--we will be back next time we are in Amsterdam.

“Delicious food, Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

What a great experience! We were there for dinner with friends - we EACH picked six small dishes (crab, duck, lamb, tofu, etc) and they bring them out over a period of time. They were all tasty - generous portions and fresh! There were six of us, and we had three bottles of wine - the dinner came out to less than 30 Euro a head. It was a shame that it wasn't very crowded - it should be! We also enjoyed the ambiance - nicely balanced Asian fusion.
