Umami Umami is an intimate dining experience where food aficionados can go to enjoy sitting in a cozy downstairs sushi bar or ascend the grand staircase, admiring the beautiful crystal chandelier en route to the spacious yet intimate dining room.



Umami Umami is a family owned and operated restaurant: Inspired by the historical background of the building; the family was determined to restore the building to its former glory. Their dream was to reintroduce the former Dresher Inn to the community as a dynamic culinary experience blending Japanese and Korean cuisines. We are proud to have accomplished their goal and invite you to join us.

Umami Umami is a local gem. Very authentic fresh Korean and sushi. The sushi is outstanding- extremely fresh and beautifully presented, with a wide variety of options. The Korean dishes, including spicy bolgolgi and dolsot bimbimbap are delicious, and particularly good on a cold winter night. Everyone is very friendly, and Eric, our waiter was always smiling and efficient.

The staff was very attentive. Not a big Japanese food person but the waitress helped us through getting our order. Food was very good. Came on time and was prepared nicely. This was a first date, my date went really well and the atmosphere helped.

The food was excellent. A hidden gem. If you go you must experience the tower.

Slow would be an understatement. We were one of three seated tables and waited over 15 minutes for drinks, over 45 minutes for apps and 1 1/2 hours for dinner. We were celebrating an important birthday and our waiter seemed to care less. We had the salmon tower which was so-so (though we had heard rave things about it), the tuna club sandwich, which was was basically a rice sandwich and inedible, and shumai for apps. The Shumai was ok. The sushi was ok, but made me ill afterward. The fried cheesecake and fried banana were awful. Both were cold and had a nauseating sugar coating on them. Overall, extremely disappointing.

the dining area was almost empty when we arrived. We ordered and had to wait over an hour to even see a waitress to ask about our meal! We watched two separate tables come in , order, drink, eat and leave before we even got our food. The food was OK at best and overpriced for what we ordered. I will never return again due to the poor service!

Food was great as always. Even though our favorite waiter Eric wasn't in, the service was still very good.
