“It's worth it, for the high drama, the unique experience, the great service.” Jay Rayner

Why we love it

Meaning ‘Born of Nature’, Umu prides itself on the integrity and provenance of its ingredients. The Kyoto-inspired restaurant is headed up by Yoshinori Ishii, previously of Japan's three-Michelin-star restaurant, Kyoto Kitcho. Ishii presents refined, artistically stunning dishes in a sumptuous and elegant space filled with dark timbers, ceramic tableware and velvety banquettes.

What's Included?

  • Gather your friends, family or colleagues for a private dining experience for ten people at Umu
  • Enjoy a Kaiseki tasting menu each
  • Complement each plate with wines or sake, paired to accentuate flavours
  • Taste dishes such as Japanese Wagyu beef shabu-shabu, Northern Irish wild eel kabayaki and line-caught Cornish white fish

Description

Umu is London's first Kyoto-influenced restaurant and, as it stands, holds two Michelin stars; the first of which was earned within five months of opening. After four years of dedication, Executive Chef Yoshinori Ishii and his team were awarded a second star by the 2015 Michelin Guide.

Yoshinori Ishii brings over twenty years of cooking experience to the elegant dishes Umu is famed for. As well as being a highly accomplished chef, he is also a skilled fisherman, potter, and calligrapher. Ishii has a rare eye for artful display and flavour, incorporating his expertise as not only a chef, but also a skilled artist.

Dishes are grouped under the various courses that make up a banquet - appetisers (tsukidashi), soups (suimono), raw fish (tsukuri), fried dishes (agemono), simmered dishes (takiawase), rice (gohan) and desserts (kashi) – comprising the Kaiseki Tasting Menu.

Adding to the appeal of this private dining experience, is the selection of complementary wines and sake, paired elegantly with each dish. A unique and sensory menu, this group affair will not disappoint.
