Went to Umami with my friends. The place is beautifully decorated. Staff is very well trained and very attentive. The Food is great. All we tried tests fantastic. The price is a bit too high for Bulgaria so be prepared to pay European prices.

Very nice place with the great garden and great service. The food is very good and tasty. It is European sushi so do not expect Japanese original. Just sit and enjoy :)
