Go to Bay Of Plenty Restaurants

Cuisine: Fusion, New Zealand, South Asian
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

Specialising in spellbinding and innovative savoury flavours, Umami is South East Asian cuisine with that unmistakable Kiwi twist.

As soon as you walk in, you are whisked away to a enchanted land. Bamboo lines the walls creating a cosy, cabin-like feel; the perfect getaway from everyday life. The space is softly lit by dozens of beautiful lanterns that glimmer in the ornate mirrors. A slice of paradise to say the least.

The menu is centered around sharing plates so why not try a bit of everything! Start with some fluffy bao buns filled with everything from pork belly to eggplant katsu, or get some moreish karaage chicken in. If you're into your seafood, there are some Hanoi crab cakes or some tender grilled salmon teriyaki to satiate your appetite.

If meat is your jam, look no further than the massaman duck curry or beef short rib that comes with potato mash and charred corn. Make a real feast of it with some sides like kimchi, roti bread or some simple steamed rice. You might need to be rolled home.

We went to Umami Fusion for dinner and everything was awesome from the delicious food and tap beer to the great service, quirky music and fun waitresses. We especially loved the deep fried dumplings and Kogagi chicken. My daughter said, “Best restaurant ever!” She was dancing, smiling and having the best time. We were very impressed and will definitely be back. What a cool restaurant and yummy menu.

Very Beautiful Restaurant ...we loved the lighting and the infinity mirrors. The service was excellent with friendly waitresses who knew the menu well ...of course we left the a tip.
The food was exciting, as being fusion we didn't quite know what to expect, it was all delicious, the meat was cooked to perfection, we had Karaage Chicken, Chicken Bulgogi and Beef Short Rib, all were succulent and tender. The Karrage Chicken was especially delicious, a bit like chicken calamari! We loved the share plates which meant your taste buds got a treat.
We tried the mango sago and chocolate and chilli cake...both were sumptuous.
The Vietnamese coffee over ice w.s a perfect ending.
Have only dropped a point for food as l'm not a big fan of Korean flavours, (Chicken Bulgogi & Beef short rib) but this was more down to our choices.
My daughter said it was the best meal she'd ever eaten out and she loved the way you didn't know what was coming next.
Overall a magical night that we will definitely repeat.
Thank you for your lovely food and hospitality Umami.

Great food and atmosphere. We ordered a few large plates to share, I think in future I would order a large plate individually as the phone was a hard one to share. Had the phone, pork belly, karaage chicken and Korean chicken. Everything was good!

First time my husband & l used First Table. Being coeliac, lm always hesitant about trying a new restaurant but on the main course main all dishes bar one was Gluten Free, not often you get that. All the food was delicious especially the beef cheek. We had a bit of an issue with payment but it was quickly sorted. We will be back.

A nice warm and comforting (on a Winter's Night) restaurant with excellent wait staff. While the food was good, it didn't seem outstanding. It is touted as a share plate menu, with all items to be shared, yet the Bao Buns came as a single bun and not easy to cut and share. The chef could have cut it or better still let me know at time of ordering and I would have ordered two.
Good house wines and well priced.

We had such amazing food here, best we've had for awhile. Everything was deliciously cooked, unique in its way and totally lived up its fusion style. The service was friendly, detailed and attention. The atmosphere was warm, comfortably lively and we loved the music which was just loud enough to lift our spirits but not noisy and distracting. The fit out is modern, charming and we can see the effort and expense that has gone into every detail. A very satisfying night out where our expectations were totally exceeded. We'll be back for more!
