We visited this restaurant in KLCC to search for the good taste it used to have 3 years ago. I still remember how great the beef sukiyaki in its damansara uptown HQ tasted last time. To our dismay, the food's standard was totally unrecognizable. The...More

All the food was extremely delayed (Around 30 minutes). Gyoza was undercooked and rice was soggy. Miso soup which I normally like, here I did not. Service also seemed very unfriendly even before complaining or giving them a reason to be. Having eaten in the...More

I dined here today with my bf for our Christmas lunch. The service was poor and the food was also poor. We waited over half an hour for our food. The dumplings were under cooked and a crispy chicken dish we ordered was soggy. 1...More

Have visited 3rd time & food was delicious. I like sitting on their tatami enjoying my food but the restaurant have renovated. There will be no Japanese style design. A bit disappointed.

An ordinary Japanese restaurant chain that serve some nice Japan-imported seasonal fishes and wagyu beef from Matsusaka and Kobe, whereby Matsusaka's being more expensive. Of course the Matsusaka beef is very tasty with the marbling meat. Nothing special and just ordinary.

Visiting Umai-Ya was very good experience. We ordered Bikuri Maki sushi, seafood fried rice, miso soup and ramen. All dishes were fantastic specially the sushi and soup. I liked the ambience and the overall set up plus it's located in Suria KLCC. Little expensive but...More

Umai-Ya is a comfortable Japanese restaurant with very good food. The restaurant's design splits it into three rooms, making the good-size space feel somewhat small-restaurant-intimate. The main dining area has several tables and booths, with a decorative wall dividing the space into two. The tables...More
