For a place that opened only in December 2012 and seats only about 20, it does a great business, and now I know why. I arrived at 2 pm on a Monday. Seven young upwardly mobile Russians at the biggest table, plus various individuals and pairs came in and out. It's an Asian fusion kind of place, and the Tom Yam soup was absolutely on target! Leona, the server in blond dreadlocks and a colorful tattoo on her right calf and loads of personality, told me "but it's spicy." Ordered it anyway and glad I did. Also had their pork and veggie dumplings with three dipping sauces, and the teriyaki chicken fried rice. Credit for having larger than usual chunks of chicken, but the danger is that they lose their tenderness, and I also suggested adding just a touch of green onion -- which Julia, the owner, seemed to take seriously. Even the ambiance is nice, with jazz and other classic tunes in the background. At this writing, Umao is #11, and it deserves every bit of that rating.
