It was kind of surprise visit for my wife birthday lunch. Wanted to take somewhere close but cool place too. We both like pan Asian food,and the Umame looked promising on web. Walked in for lunch first impressions amazing setup....Nice feeling to be in the restaurant...food sounded good on the menu trust me tasted amazing I am not that fond of mackerel but miso mackerel was cooked to perfection and flavour just right with miso... soft shell crab in harita bun amazing. Ebi fry prawns with wasabi emulsion wow. Pan fried seabream and market fish was amazing too. Being chef too can't criticise on any part though it be set up of place or food...Surely will come soon in group..

We chose this restaurant for dinner after visiting The Rose Theatre, because as Friends we get a discount. Prior to booking I visited the website and read the description to my other half, who seemed ambivalent but agreed to try it. Having eaten here now, we both agree that it sells itself short. The menu is imaginative, the flavour combinations are a joy, the ingredients are top quality, the service is attentive and efficient but also friendly. We chose chicken gyoza and soft shell crab to start, followed by the barbecue octopus and barramundi for mains, with tapioca and chocolate fondant for dessert. With wine (including a glass each of dessert wine) the bill was just shy of 100 quid, which may seem pricey but actually worth every penny. Aside from revisiting the description on the website (give it the fanfare it deserves!), our only other tip would be to get the waiting staff to up-sell some of the key dishes on the menu, explaining what the Special is and advising on accompanying sides. Having said that, we will definitely be back.

Hi JulesHH65,

Thank you for the rave review on TripAdvisor,

I am glad we managed to be good friends who keep up with their promises.

I must agree that the chef's put in a lot of effort in creating the gastronomy involved to vow our guests.

We do agree with the waiting staff knowledge but can assure you that we are working everyday to improve it.

Last but not the least we have shared your compliments with the entire team and look forward to welcoming you again

Regards and Thanks

Had a good meal here recently. The starters were all very tasty and unusual and went down very well. The mains were also good. The rack of lamb and the barramundi were both delicious. Nice desserts and pretty good wine too. We thought it was also good value.

Visited here after living in the area for a while and we were blown away by the quality of the food. Whilst the menu choice was not extensive it meant that everything was cooked to a very high standard. We all had different starters and main courses and they all tasted amazing. The service was great too.
