Food was absolutely amazing.
Friendly and attentive staff and manager.
Excellent as always!
We had a great evening on Thursday, with fabulous food and drink, great staff and lovely atmosphere, would highly recommend Umame!!
Great food, really lovely service and particularly good cocktails.
Brought my better half here as a birthday treat and they made it extra special with their treatment and even gave her a special dish
Fantastic 7 course taster menu that won't leave a hole in your pocket. Great cocktails. What a find. I've been recommending it already.
Lovely food and great service. Cheesecake was quite small and deconstructed. Lacking music.
The food was amazing and well presented. It was great value for money. The setting was great but the whole experience was let down by the poor service, it started off well but deteriorated as the night went on and the restaurant emptied. Waited 20minutes for the bill and another 10 for to pay. Improved service would have resulted in a 5 star rating.
The food was very good and reasonably priced. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and good staff. Good flavour combos and exciting dishes.
I have been to this restaurant five times in total and every time it's been amazing. Staff very friendly , cooking outstanding, superb choice of gins and cocktails well made and presented. I have taken different groups of friends and they have all been impressed. The prices are fair for the standard of food although they also run different promotions which make it very good value, always check out when making your booking. I feel lucky to live within walking distance of Umame and Long may they continue trading as far as I'm concerned . Portions are not huge but well thought out, three courses leaves you feeling very satisfied but not uncomfortable, all depending on appetite of course!
The place is always presented spotlessly clean, glassware particularly attractive and crockery also pleasing.
All in all a winner in my book.
First time experience, loved the Ambiance, food & service was great - definitely going there again :-)
Very good in all aspects. Will definitely go back.
Stunning food, great service - best food in town . Real hidden gem
A hidden gem in this place is the seven course tasting menu, with or without a flight of very well chosen wines. Absolutely lovely. Plus not only is there an omnivorous version, there's a vegan version! (Although so far I have only tried the former, I fully expect the vegan one to be excellent)
A gem of a restaurant. We both shared the tempura asparagus and the batter was a delight. Crisp.. light.. and the bright green tender stems were delightful. I then chose the duck which was very tender. I would have preferred a touch more acidity in the sauce but that could be personal. My companion had the pork loin which was delicious. Portions were not huge and not small either and I was glad we ordered a side dish of broccoli . I would recommend this restaurant and will be back!! The 7 course tasting menu looks like a treat I might just have to give myself!!
It was a nice night out. Perhaps the menu is quite limited. I also for some reason was expecting something with more Asian influence in the menu, but the menu was more British/ European. I also made a terrible mistake not realising the broccoli cake with a truffle sauce 😏 and the broccoli was also over cooked. So that was not a great side. The waiter should make sure they point theses type of additions with sides as one does not normally expect something as simple and tasty as steamed broccoli to be ruined etc a sauce .. cocktail was really tasty and dessert and starter were lovely. My husband thoroughly enjoyed all his food. Nice place for a dinner date.
Good food with great service. A restaurant experience at gastropub prices. Was definitely worth the walk over the bridge from Kingston
Very nice restaurant great service with very good food and an interesting tasting menu to be recommended
Delicious food and excellent service. Only issues were v small portions and adding a service charge to the bill AND asking for an additional tip on the bill too. Didn’t sit right with me.
Lovely romantic restaurant and bar with friendly attentive staff. Both the food and the cocktails are top quality - Particularly loved the Mulled Wine Crumble and the Gin Mint Tea!
Our first visit and it won't be our last. Took relations there for a post Christmas/New Year dinner. Good food and very interesting. I had the pork belly for mains and it was memorable. Pleasant staff and good service. Thank you.
Really good service and vibes. Good small plate food with great cocktails and mocktails
Excellent all round - especially the tasting menu with paired wines
This place is fantastic! It is one of my favourite restaurants in the area. Tonight one of our table had gluten free and vegan dietary requirements which were no problem at all. All the food was stunning, the staff are lovely, a wonderful independent restaurant. Thank you!
We had New years eve at the restaurant and the food was exceptional, one of the best restaurants we have eaten in. We have been to many top class restaurants but have to say the food hear is quite outstanding.
We went for lunch and it was pretty quiet. Excellent flavours and well plated. The set menu was excellent value. Would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.
Amazing food and service .
Went for Christmas Day , table of 5 , very good .
The food and service were both spot on. Absolutely loved the scallop starters
The food was delicious though there was very limited choice for vegetarians or pescatarians. The atmosphere and lighting were lovely and the service was good.
This was our third visit here and the first since a new chef introduced a new menu, more modern British than before but with an Asian twist. On Saturdays and Sundays they have a bruch menu which is incredible value at £9.95 for two courses. Yes it really is that price and my it was very good. I had mushrooms on sour dough toast to start which were very good quality and well prepared and we all (5 fussy diners) had kedgeree as a main and everyone agreed it was really great. Quite spicy but not too much. Service was much better tha previously; the young lady who served us was attentive and polished and we all thought it was incredible value. I would suggest everyone support this great local restaurant so much better than the mediocre chains in Kingston. We will be back!
This is the 3rd time we have eaten here and it’s been excellent every time!
Tasting menu is superb & excellent value for money.
Celebrated a birthday. Staff were very friendly, food was nice and found the pricing reasonable for the area. Definitely a good addition and somewhere different to go for a meal out. Would go back again
Superb food and fantastic service. We’ll definitely be back.
this was my fourth visit to Umame and the food as usual was excellent - imaginitive dishes cooked well.
Staff as always friendly and attentive even though they had a big table for a company christmas event.
i would highly recommend this restaurant.
First visit to Umame and loved it. A birthday meal for my wife, cocktails, great food and very well priced. Service was excellent, ambience was lively and exciting. Would definitely visit again.
We had the taster menu for my Mums birthday. it was fabulous, made for a lovely long meal.
Pre Xmas gathering, loved the choices of the Festive menu, something for everyone. Easily accommodated special dietary requirements with slight adjustments to the menu. The evening went so well, friendly attentive but discreet service, can’t fault the staff. Each dish was beautifully presented, some quite a modern version of what had been expected but thoroughly delicious and portion size was spot on. Everyone of us loved the food and we’ll definitely be back.
Excellent dining experience - recommend the tasting menu with paired wines - will certainly visit again
Excellent food and great service especially for a Monday night.
