Offering authentic dishes from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam, Umami offers an east-meets-west dining experience. The setting is informal yet stylish with contemporary furnishings and plush, intimate booth seating.
The Umami menu offers an eclectic mix of dishes, and includes the likes of sesame king prawn rolls, and crunchy spiced squid fitters with aioli. The mains section is headed by the signature crispy aromatic duck, which is especially popular, as well as inventive twists on classics like the beef burger with kimchi and Asian coleslaw.
A variety of world wines and fine teas sourced from across Asia complement the food perfectly at Umami restaurant. The speciality dessert at Umami is not to be missed: a delicate pandan brûlée.
Umami Kensington sits a short 2-minute stroll from Gloucester Road Tube Station as well as some of London's top museums and other attractions, including The Science Museum, and The Natural History Museum.

Having once lived in Indonesia my favourite dish is Beef Rendang and the Beef Rendang we had on our visit was excellent. The chicken satay was also excellent. So well done to the chef. The service was also excellent.

Dishes are mild compared to Thailand, but they obviously cater for the local market and the flavours are excellent.

The food was very tasty however the service was poor & the staff I found rude. Three of our dishes arrived after five minutes we inquired as to where the rice was as the table next to us had received theirs after ordering after us. Still nothing 5 mins later asked manager who didn’t apologies and disappeared to find out what was happening. After asking for a third time my dish and the rice came out.... 15 mins after the main plates had come out, luckily the food was still warm. The top was included in the bill my husband paid it although I asked him not to as I was unhappy and embarrassed by the staff and service

Food was really good . The waiting time to order food and drinks was too long having them ordered we had been at our table for over 1/2 hour before we had our drinks . It was then apparent our mains were ready as they tried to clear our stater plates and one of our party was still eating . The mains arrived as the starter plates were removed

The staff were very friendly, the food is middle range and a bit pricey for what you actually get. I was a bit upset over the fact that I missed the staff bringing out my partners cake and then singing him happy birthday. I would liked to have seen that. I would liked to have seen more range on the menu. I asked for a romantic seat as it eas my husbands birthday. They did arrange a booth for us but the only thing is that our table was by the entrance of the restaurant. Middle range restaurant. The staff did give my partner a thank you card for sharing his birthday meal with them. A nice touch....
