Just to say had a delicious meal here and am happy to recommend it. Would advise making a booking rather than turning up on spec. Restaurant was nearly empty when we left at 9pm - so for ambiance go early.

Yumi serves a small but perfectly formed menu of well-focused dishes perfect for friends to share. We loved the lotus root salad, which was light and nutty. The pumpkin gyozas were supremely moreish and the chilli salt squid beautifully cooked with a good helping of delicious dipping sauce. For me the stand-out dish was the yumi ribs, with meat that melted off the bone generously coated with a sumptuous teriyaki-style marinade. For dessert, the coconut ice cream was divine with a nicely cooked chocolate pudding, and the deconstructed banoffee pie pretty special (even if I was too full to finish it by then!).
The service was excellent and unobtrusive, our glasses always full with fresh cool water. The restaurant had a good atmosphere, in a quiet courtyard but in a good part of town. A great place to eat quality food if you're ever in Phnom Penh, and costs about the same as a McDonalds in London!

This place looks lovely. The staff are friendly and service is professional with cool towels given on arrival and free cold water. There is a nice atmosphere. Although there isnt too much on the menu, the food was all really tasty: mixed sushi, pumpkin groups, pork and chive dumplings and vegetable tempura. Compared to everywhere else we have been in Cambodia this place was pretty expensive per plate, and you need a few, so the bill added up to more than we would normally pay for dinner. Also due to quality reasons there is no raw fish served therefore sushi is not that authentic but still very tasty!

Had a delicious lunch and as mentioned in the review below the pumpkin gyozas were amazing. The ribs were also delicious.

The staff were very attentive and a lot of effort has obviously gone into their training.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and each time we go we end up ordering plate after plate of pumpkin gyozas because they are really good. However, I keep trying it because of these two things and so far have been quite disappointed with a lot of the menu items which have been pretty uneventful for the price they're charging. For a place that is so expensive by Cambodian standards, the menu (and wine list) could be a lot better.
