“Great dessert!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

I think we all agreed the best was the dessert.. Not too sweet. The tempura, fried snapper and pumpkin gyoza were good too and we had second orders of all. The pork belly with buns was good and not at all oily. The pork ribs were a little too tough so you can give that a miss.

The only complaint we had was the lighting. Too dark for outdoor dining. The only table that was available indoor was next to the toilet and there was an unpleasant odour. So would really recommend the restaurant management to do something about that and improve on the indoor ventilation.

“Japanese restaurant in Phnom Penh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Small dishes very well done. Not cheap for Cambodia, but tasty and nice if you are looking for a change from Khmer food.

“Wonderful little Japanese discovery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

I had Gyoza as advised by other reviewers and it was delicious. I could have just eaten the wrapper and would have been happy. The filling was a bonus. Then I had noddle and edamame salad. Their cocktails were fantastic. One of the best places I have been to, food and service.

“Beautiful spot with great menu, food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Yumi is a quiet and relaxed place that pays close attention to all its details. The design is pleasing and the ambiance right for quiet, intimate conversation. They were not busy when we visited; the service was properly attentive without being intrusive. The menu offers many thoughtful ideas and the specials, described well by our server, rounded out the normal fare very nicely. Our food was delicious and just as described. Even our beverages were excellent.

Yumi is a place that warrants a return visit. It's a little hard to spot from the street but the softly lit sign on the sidewalk does a good job of relaying the atmosphere you will find inside. Go in, take a seat, and prepare for a pleasing experience.

“Yumi is a Fun Little Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

I have been going to Yumi Since it opened a few years ago. They have a new Pan Asian Street food menu on at the moment and its great fun. The have Gyozas dumpling from Japan, Moreish Pork Belly Steamed buns from China, Fresh Papaya Salads from Thailand and Vietnamese Chicken and Beef Banh Mi sanwiches. The owner was asking people to write a review on their facebook page so I thought i would as I have been eating here for so long.
