Was recommended this restaurant by a friend who gave really high praise of it. He was certainly right. Service was nothing but excellent. From start to finish we were tended by the warm personel working there. I must point out that the restaurant was rather full, making service a tad slow, but nevertheless great. The food was wonderful. Tried the... More

We have visited this restaurant for the last 4 years and we have been always satisfied by the quality of the food and the service. One of the best Japanese food I have ever tried even when compared to the Japanese restaurants in California.

Great food, great service. Pleasantly surprised by the quality, especially in this very touristic area. Booking recommended in the summer.

Since it is at the top of the list for restaurants in the Grande Motte, we thought we had finally found a "good" restaurant for the evening....the prices were decent, and we ordered a mid price package of sushi, sashimi, and a California Roll, with soup & salad to begin. Miso soup was just very ordinary in flavor, salad was... More

We enjoyed dinner at Umami, food was delicious. Given, that we were quite hungry, it took a bit too long until the food arrived. Maybe they didn't expect that many guests on s Sunday Evening!

We were all famished when we rolled up at this restaurant at 19:00. The restaurant took a little while to get up and running and service was adversely affected but when the food did arrive it was well presented and we all thought it was delicious. However other than the food there is not much to say about the restaurant.... More

Feels almost like beeing in Japan! Great Sushi and California Rolls. Tempura and Teppanyaki is a bit European style but still good.
