Went here for my family birthday meal. Group of nine of us in total including 3 children. The atmosphere of the restaurant was sophisticated but also relaxed, striking the perfect chord for a special meal that could be enjoyed by old and young alike. The waiting staff were extremely attentive and always one step ahead of your needs. The menu is high end Thai food and did not disappoint on flavour or presentation. Their meat supplier in particular is to be complimented. A cut above what you may be used to in your usual Thai restaurant. There is also a fun cocktail menu to work through if your partial. All in all a very enjoyable evening and we will definitely be returning.

Hi yvettec,

Thank you for reviewing us on TripAdvisor

We are really happy that we lived up to your expectations in terms of food and service.
and that we ticked all the boxes.

We do use very highly recommended suppliers and also we do not compromise on quality. Also our cocktail menu is carefully put together to try and instil as many Asian flavours as possible.

Your compliments have been shared with the entire team at UMAME and we hope to welcome you again soon

Regards & Thanks

We had a friends evening out here and were charmed by the quality of the staff, intrigued by the different mouth-watering asian fusion combinations on offer and bowled over by the innovative loyalty scheme. I would recommend Umame very highly. It's not cheap but the value is good and the loyalty scheme enhances that side of the equation. House wines are around the £20 mark.

The good was very nice, the prawn starter was excellent and very filling.

I had the weeping tiger lamb which was cooked very well with the spicy sauce.

I had the creme brulee dessert which was also very good.

Check the menu before you go as there is a limited selection but what they do have they do very well.

The Singapore slings are very good and they were replaced often but they were not as good at refilling my teapot of mint tea.

Hi Mrs. Mike,

Thank you for reviewing us on TripAdvisor,

I am glad you like the food and that we lived up to your expectations. We do tend to keep limited choices with a good variety of dishes and change the menu every 8 to 10 weeks. Our new spring menu is out now and it is a must try because it does have very different flavours.

We have shared your review with the team and will do the needful to get that little bit more in our service. We are constantly training each team member to achieve excellence and I can assure you we will improve in a short span of time.

Regards and thanks

Was on a trip in London with a mate and staying in Kingston. We where looking for a good restaurant in the neighbourhood and luckily we found Umame.
The main reason for the high praise the place receives from me was the taste of the beef carpaccio I had as an appetizer. It was simply the best dish I have ever tasted.
For the main course I had the lamb rump. It was delicious as well but the carpaccio was the stand out dish.
The only negative aspect of this visit was that there were a bunch of people close to us celebrating a birthday and they were extremely loud. We could barely have a conversation because we couldn't hear each other. But the staff gave us a discount because of it.

Hi Sigurjon,

Thank you for reviewing us on TripAdvisor,

We are extremely happy that we gave you something to remember on your trip to London. And that we made it worth your travel.

Your compliments about the food and the efficiency of the staff has been shared with the entire team at UMAME.

Apologies about the noisy neighbours :-) and as we are a small restaurant we have looked into sound absorbing panels that might help in reducing the noise level. Hopefully we should have them installed soon.

Once again thank you for an honest review as it is such reviews that help us improve our restaurant to deliver the best.

Regards

I would highly recommend this restaurant.
I was pleasantly surprised.
The menu gave a good selection. Just the right amount of choices.
We were a party of 4 so ordered 4 different starter, mains and desserts, we were all eager to try each other’s and nothing disappointed.
The presentation of the food was excellent too, standard I would expect to find in a fine dining restaurant in London.
The cocktails were really good too.
Staff were pleasant and happy to help.
We will definitely go again!
