We dine at Umami 2-3 times a month and have done so for at least 18 months, Umami is our first choice when meeting friends and family. Never once have we had a bad meal or even subpar. We can rely on Umami to provide...the tastiest food and the freshest produce. The service is always 5 star and you will always be greeted by a friendly face. A vast selection of food yet always perfected! Umami is our favorite restaurant in Tauranga! We have had bookings of upto 20 people and it’s still faultless! Umami is a must try and is the best in the bay for us!More

As new residents of Tauranga we are exploring the restaurants nearby, and we don't want to have to head into the CBD to eat. The population centre of the city has clearly moved west, and 'local' restaurants like the Umami Fusion kitchen are filling a...really important niche. We have eaten there twice and enjoyed our meals. ( the shitake dumplings are very good if you like mushroom! mmmmm) and the number of very comfortable patrons suggests a strong cohort of return customers. Good beer and wine and cocktails list. Still finding my way around Tauranga, and think this is worth revisiting again. Service is good, with attention to detail and customer care.More

Early dinner for 2 and we’re not disappointed, nicely set up restaurant, comfortable surroundings but not over done, service was great, wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable, we had 1 entree and 2 mains and hard to push to eat it all, really good sized...servings, and the food itself was delicious, served timely and well prepared , totally recommend and will visit again!More

Trying a different main tonight instead of our usual, we were not disappointed.The pork fell off the bone. No messy fingers here! Leek and potato croquettes tasty and hot (temperature) as were the share dishes. Staff friendly but professional, leaving us alone to enjoy the...food. Cocktails from the new menu…divine. And we’ll be back…again 😊More

Absolutely loved this place right from the start. The staff were so friendly, very helpful and patient when we couldn’t decide which tempting dishes to have. We shared 4 small plates and 4 bigger plus 4 deserts …all were delicious and mouthwatering. The only disappointment...was the Vietnamese iced coffee which sadly was pretty tasteless , just not to our liking. We all voted that we would definitely go again, highly recommend. This is the only coffee on offerMore
