Umu was a great disappointment. It's a lovely room but the food is serious overpriced given that it's distinctly average. We had two great sushi nigiri but the sashimi was unremarkable and badly cut and the lobster tempura batter was claggy. There are really great Japanese restaurants in London - this isn't one of them
Great hidden in the city. In the deep corner of the small street, if you do not pay attention, you will not notice this high-end Japanese restaurant at all. There is no traditional Japanese signboard decoration inside and outside, and it looks more like a legendary high-end bar and nightclub without a sign at a glance. The skill of saving the coat has begun to doubt the integrity of this house. They come, the security. To save time learning the menu, I immediately ordered Winter Kaiseki Menu, plus a sea urchin sashimi. The smell of wine is not afraid of the deep alley! Very delicate kaiseki cuisine. The plate is elegant, the ingredients are fresh, the taste is good, and it is quite innovative. The scallop tempura is wrapped with roasted seaweed into a hand-rolled shape. The waiter urged you to eat it in three bites, and the last bite should be served with soup to taste different textures and full of ritual. Venison and Wagyu sushi with matsutake, the meat is delicate, covered with matsutake, and the color and taste are excellent. The slabs filled with sashimi are equipped with poem cards written by the chef (you can take them home as a souvenir after the meal), which shows the store’s good intentions. The single point sea urchin sashimi is very delicious and absolutely top notch. As soon as this dish came out, I knew it was in the right place, and it was definitely a high-quality new Japanese restaurant. If you want to eat high-end Japanese food when you come to London, don't miss his house.
The Kaiseki restaurant in London has a very good evaluation. The sushi inside is good. The chef thinks I like to eat it. They make a little bit bigger and fresh sea fish sashimi, which is a little bit worse than that of Japan.
Although it is highly recommended by a friend, I still doubt the taste of Japanese food of Europeans. After trying it for myself, I can say objectively and fairly that it has met the basic requirements of kaiseki cuisine, but it is far from the requirements of famous restaurants.
There is not much hope for the Japanese food in the UK, but in terms of taste, this restaurant surprised me if I didn’t see the Japanese chef. Wagyu beef is topped with sauce and rolled with vegetables. The plate is beautifully presented and there is no meat. There will be a greasy feeling of fullness, accompanied by a bowl of steamed rice, is a satisfying lunch. The sushi platter is not special, the fresh fish tastes good, but the rice is not well-kneaded, loose and loose, foie gras sushi Very creative. I like the potted image of tiramisu very much, and the taste is good. This is a recommended Japanese food shop. The restaurant is located on a relatively hidden side road, which is fairly easy to find. There is not much space between seats, but the environment is not Dry and complex, with a good dining atmosphere. The waiters and chefs are mostly European and American, not the same as the Japanese restaurant in the impression, but they all greet them in Japanese, but it sounds a little weird, haha. And their service It makes people feel professionally trained
UmU did not disappoint me, especially the tiramisu is so special, the bottom with plum sauce-like Japanese ingredients, wagyu must be the favorite of carnivores, remind you to remember to locate in advance on weekends, avoid waiting
