About

Open in 2012 Umami received this name from the inspiration of its Feng Shui owners.

The word Umami stems from “A pleasant savoury taste”. It’s classed as the 5th taste we experience after sweet, salty, bitter and sour.

Ideally located on Cromwell Road and opposite Gloucester Road tube station, Umami is frequented by tourists visiting local sites like The Science & Natural History Museum. A casual dining restaurant with good value for money and friendly staff that will help you decide a menu where flavours of East meet West. Our Signature, Crispy Aromatic Duck is a common favourite amongst our regular diners.

Choose a booth for more relaxed and intimate dining experience. Remember to end your meal with our delicious Pandan Brûlée and your choice of tea sourced from different regions of Asia.

Umami extends its flavours into our unique Teas to be enjoyed before, after or even between courses, it’s a great way to cleanse the palette for a full dining experience.

If you’d like to hire Umami, private groups up to 76 people can also be catered for.
