“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Thrilled that we finally have Thai food in Porter's Neck. This place is great. I am picky about my Thai food and was very pleased with this place. It's small but the high booths are great for the atmosphere. You walk in and forget you are in the typical strip mall. The food was excellent. I had planned to eat only half and bring the rest home for dinner, but - uuummm, that didn't work out - I couldn't leave a bite on my plate. Delicious!

“Umaii is excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

A somewhat small restaurant Umaii is a good one. The food is plentiful and delicious, the service very good. There is plenty of parking and the location in Porter's Neck is easy to find. An Asian friend loves this place which tells you a lot.

“Welcome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We tried this new Thai place for the first time and love it!
We started with Thai soups and spring rolls ,followed by black pepper shrimp and crispy red snapper entree's, all of it was fresh,perfectly spiced and reasonable priced.
Like all new restaurants,service had a few hiccups but the food quality takes your focus away from that.
The place is small and it won't be long before the good ratings will make it hard to get a table,go enjoy now!

“Perhaps still too early”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

New Asian (Thai) restaurant open a couple of weeks. Service was friendly, but slow. Food was good and reasonably priced. As this is a sister restaurant to another one in town (Tokyo one) I expected a better interior. Small is OK, can be intimate, but I was concerned about drapes between kitchen and sales floor, not too healthy. Boxes stacked around and servers drinking their drinks from Styrofoam containers, again on the sales floor. Will probably try again, but not too impressed.
