My favorite dish is "Evil Jungle Prince" - both for the flavour of the creamy Thai curry, and for the way its name evokes the slightly offbeat character of this delightful restaurant. The menu ranges all over the culinary map and includes a large number of dishes to suit vegans, gluten-avoiders and locavores. The portions are large, the staff bend over backwards to accommodate special wishes, and as mentioned by other reviewers, The Umami has a relaxed atmosphere that is very child-friendly. The only downside to its popularity is that the restaurant can be very noisy - this was a problem for an elderly, hearing-impaired guest on a recent, busy evening. But I will surely return for another taste!
