I and my bf had gyoza, vege ramen and tonkatsu curry (deep fried, breaded pork with curry). except ramen which was still nothing special, the other dishes were quite terribble.. 1. the dough for gyoza(fried) was way too thick so it was easily breakable that we had to eat the meat and dough separately. Dumpling with thick dough is not... More

The ramen was a little undercooked and the pot stickers dry but it wasnt bad for Japanese food. A tiny little place a few mins from us. I wouldn go again for the deep fried chicken to give them a second chance.

La comida de Uma Uma ha mejorado muchísimo. Siempre han estado muy ricos los ramen, pero nunca me gustaban mucho los otros platos. Ahora, todos esta muy rico. Lo único negativo del lugar es que hace mucho calor adentro--a veces esta incómodo. The food at Uma Uma has gotten much better. The ramen has always been great, but I'd never... More

There are many Japanese restaurants in Guadalajara that are much better than this. Most of the dishes are noodle-based and they do have Japanese beer. The fried crab ball appetizer (I don't remember it's name) was pretty good. However, I don't see a need to go back.

The udon was delicious; two of us enjoyed it. The entradas were average, typical gyoza, nothing special, and that goes for the little crab cakes too. The mango drink was average as well. The chairs are uncomfortable and the environment way scaled down. Go here for a nice simple meal with a friend and then go explore Chapultepec, but do... More

This is a nice japanese place where it is modern and hip. The dishes are good, I love that you can order food that is not that common to find in other japanese places.

So happy to have found a chill Japanese restaurant with excellent noodles, I had been looking and couldn't find anything. The atmosphere is chill and cool, the drinks and food are wonderful. It's nothing fancy but even if you have to wait for a table I would recommend it for sure. I'll be going back and taking my extremely picky... More

We had to wait a lot for a table (5 people) but it was worth the wait, everything was delicious and served in big portions. The staff was really kind and easy-going.

Great japanese hot dishes. It impresses by the simplicity of the food with amazing taste. Start with the guioza, which are prepared in vapour. I tasted the lamen and I felt like home. The place is quite hide in Chapultepec, cool environment, nice service.
