"The quality of the food at Umu is pretty good, but it doesn't bewitch you the way a kaiseki banquet in Japan might." READ REVIEW

"After hearing stories of how the indigenous Japanese vegetables and wild fish are being flown from Japan, and that the chef insists on cooking with specially imported Japanese water because London water is too harsh, I had been expecting a meal of breathtaking perfection.

Critic's score: 6.5
