Been here twice, food was delicious. Menu had pictures to help you choose. For the first time I tried traditional Japanese yogurty drink, it was lovely, also I liked mango rice balls for dessert.

I have eaten here about 5 times now and each time enjoyed. The service seems to have improved over the times I have visited. The service is slick and friendly. For early on a Wednesday evening there were a lot of customers coming and going. The ambiance was lovely and service friendly.

The food was great as usual and we shared a very nice bottle of wine. The tempura was delicious and fresh as ever. The aubergine was delicious, wish there had been more. I had mushroom rice which was amazing. I could have eaten that alone, but with the prawns was exquisite. I tasted my partners curry rice wow was very tasty as was the salmon teriyaki.

I think the food I have tasted is as authentically Japanese as you can get in this country. I haven't tried the sushi yet. I have to say what I saw coming out of the kitchen looked fabulous. Arigato Goziamasu

Cant believe that we haven't visited this restaurant before. The service was excellent and efficient, and the food unbelievable. All 8 of us thoroughly enjoyed our choices. The menu is extensive and well priced. Will definitely be back...... in the very near future.

Umai is by far one of my most favourite places to eat in Shrewsbury! The staff are lovely and the food is always excellent - especially the salmon teriyaki!! Reasonable pricing, quick service would highly recommend!!!
