Absolutely Amazing food!

We decided to treat ourselves to dinner at Umii after friends of ours raved about how delicious the food was. Expectations were definitely high and happy to say we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was second to none!

Outstanding

Have visited many Japanese restaurants around the world and let me say Umii is in the top 3 if not number 1. Service used to be touch n go but the issues appear all ironed out.

Ultimate Experience

Umii does not hype itself it actually delivers. We left extremely impressed by the top service and the incredibly tasty and fresh food. The sushi was perfect and the hot food was nothing short of incredibly yummy. Well done to Umii. I don't usually review but after the experience it's worth my time to review.

Exceeded expectations

Saw free spoon night on Facebook and having their luscious food ads daily I decided yo give Umii a go. What a great place. A little tight in space but overall was amazed how good the food was. The manager George came and made sure all was good and we couldn't of had a better experience. Hype it is but it delivers.

Not Disappointed Just Overwhelming

Great expectations were met at Umii. Food was delightful and quick to come out. Impressive was the speed and attention of the staff. Once a plate finished it was immediately taken from the table. The manager was lovely and treated is like important guests. Will be returning.

Great place

A fabulous night has made this place my favorite Japanese restaurant. The cocktails especially the Anan was an explosion of taste. Service was fantastic and the food so noticeably delicious and fresh. About time a great restaurant like this is in the suburbs.

The real deal

Went to umii with my boyfriend and was thrilled with the experience. Tried the Carpaccio which was delightful and the bakuhatsu was just explicit. The service was very good and the food times to come out was super quick. Can't wait to try more.

Memorable Experience

A lovely place that is well presented. Our service was perfection and dishes turned over very fast. Had Udon noodles which are the best I have ever had and the spoons are simply something out of this world. I am very glad it is out of the city and an upper class restaurant.

The way it is supposed to be

Impressive. From having the manager open the door on entry right through to him letting us out, Umii has made an impact by the quality and presentation of foods and the service. Staff are on the ball and was great to see that they knew what they were talking about. Price on the higher side of things but worth it when realise what freshness really is. A minor mistake when ordering by the waitress was brought to my attention by the manager with an apology and a genuine caring feeling. It was followed with a free sake and a free desert. This level of service was exceptional and memorable.

My Dining Experience

I went to Umii tonight with some friends and I was blown away by the food and service. It was by far the most amazing dining experience I've had in a long time. The food was very fresh and tasty. The portions were generous and the quality was outstanding . I would highly recommend this restaurant and I can't wait to go back and try some other things

Best Japanese restaurant in Sydney!

From the moment we arrived at Umii we were impressed! We were greeted at the door, and seated immediately. Our waitress (Dewi) was an absolute delight,advising us of what we should order.We said YES to everything and we were not disappointed! the standard and quality of the food was very high and the taste was second to none. This is by far the best Japanese restaurant i have ever been to and i can't wait to go back and try the other things we missed out on. Such a great experience !! Thank you Umii

What An Experience

We heard great things about umii and decided to try it for my husband's birthday. The place was packed on arrival and the manager greeted us. He had an issue with our booking in which other patrons had to be moved to our seats. At first my husband became upset. The manager took us outside to a table and asked us to just wait for 15 minutes. He came out with drinks and nibblies and said they are on him for the inconvenience. He had a dedicated staff member watch over us and get our group more things. When our table was ready the manager looked after us for the night even though under extreme pressure from his staff he maintained his duties with staff and looked after us. I give this place full points for the food presentation and the fact that the manager held the place together and dealt with my upset husband. I don't recall any experience like this in which the venue did everything possible to to make us happy whilst under so much pressure. I know understand why the place is rated so well.

Saw the post they are now on agfg. As many would agree they deserve the good review. Their services ate exceptional and aren't shy to provide fantastic free samples. Something that others no longer do. Their food is presented and tastes fresh. Well done umii.
