Amami Restaurant in Mellieha was inspired by the Goddess of creation, Amamikju. The Amami islands, named after this goddess, are located southwest of Kyushu third-largest island of Japan’s five main islands.

As the myth goes, the Heavenly Emperor Amamikju for grasses, trees and stones to build the islands.

This process of creation is a source of inspiration for us to source the best produce and the finest ingredients. Whether we are preparing sushi or any other creative dish, these ingredients and our talented team, enable us to serve our guests with Japanese influenced creations every day. We have full respect for this Asian cuisine and we extend this admiration to the way we serve our guests.

    The food was excellent with perfect presentation. The flavours blended well and did not clash or mask each other. The menu had ample choice whether one is a sushi fan or not. The service was present without being intrusive and the communication was pretty clear but not perfect. The ambience was pretty noisy, with the background music set at a level that clashed with the chatter and added to the cacophony rather than masking or soothing it. The view was beautiful and relaxing. Naturally, one must be ready to pay for service and food of this quality, but while overpriced, it was not exorbitant.

    Oh what a beautiful lunch. We had 2 servers but I can remember Edz very well. What a sweet heart! This is one of the few restaurants in Malta that still carries a fantastic service. Food quality, presentation, the staff, ambience, attention to detail.... All of the experience was just amazing. And then they even surprised us with a birthday greeting and song at the end. They simply made it happen and surprised us all by taking a note while we briefly mentioned that we have a celebrant during the reservation when they asked us if we are celebrating something special. Not a clue and they just made it fun and a perfect lunch. Thank you This is truly TLC service. (Tender, love and care). I work in hospitality around the world and seeing this place performing this way gives me sincerely hope in this industry. Great job!

    Service and location were nice - I was very excited to visit that place although after I passed the door and I looked at the menu I knew straight away I’ve been fooled. If you don’t have very high expectations and know nothing about Asian food it will probably be nice for you. The dim sum were the worst - I lived in Taiwan before so I was expecting something different obviously. It looks like a 5 star restaurant from the outside but they only have basic fishes nothing really local or extravagant products such as scallops. They then call “truffle and tuna” sushi’s but you end up with Californians with a truffle flavoured mayonnaise. Joke. Also from the cuts of the sashimi you know they are not sushi’s masters. It’s basically food for tourists. Good thing tho : the view, the staff and the wine selection. The fact this place has a 4.7 ratings on Google makes you wonder the general food standards on the island.

    It was our second visit to Amami. The food is excellent, but after the first few minutes, the service drops down hugely. We ordered dim sum and were later told that it was unavailable (which is fine), but this was still added to the bill. We were brought an unordered extra bottle of water (which we refused) and this was also added to the bill. When reviewing the bill, we only spotted the extra bottle of water (which was duly removed), meaning we ended up paying for 13 EUR of dim sum we hadn't had. After our mains were delivered to our table, trying to catch the attention of the servers is nigh on impossible. We repeatedly tried to catch their attention and after 35 minutes we still had our dirty plates on the table, with no offer for the dessert menu or more drinks or anything. Finally we got up to fetch dessert menus ourselves from the person at the front-of-house area. Then our dirty plates were cleared, our dessert order taken, but this took more than half an hour to appear (two desserts and one espresso). The food is so good and the staff are nice but they must be overworked or the system is ineffective, because the experience always ends up being soured. At this point we will probably not go there again, it's not worth the unpleasant experience where service is repeatedly slow and mistakes are constantly being made.

    Booked an outside table In advance so we would get a nice table, didn’t get one and asked to be moved, was told we couldn’t be moved to another outside table because they were booked, explained that we did book too though, got moved inside, by the time we were finished there was still plenty of tables outside. The food was delicious though which defiantly made up for the not so great start and the lady who served us after being moved was really lovely

    Always satisfied by the staff, cuisine and ambiance at Amami. I know exactly what I am paying for and they never let me down. We were served by Yam this time, very professional, always smiling and attention to detail. He is an asset to the team. Sushi is always top quality. Will return again for sure. Keep up the good work.

    Food was great, well presented and great taste. Unfortunately the waitress serving was dour, and not very pleasant. The restaurant / waitress could make a better job of explaining the cuisine to those not familiar with the menu on offer. The waitress was impatient and inattentive, which was a shame, and let the restaurant down. However despite the service received, would recommend for the food.
