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.
