I used to love this place. The food was great and STILL IS. Well presented. I just can't take the waiting on staff any longer. I don't expect Greek style dancing in the aisles, what I DO expect is when you pay them, they say thank you. And when you leave and say goodbye to them, they look you in... More

Went here on Friday evening, having been at least 5-6 times over the years. Always found the food to be pretty good, but this time it was poor. I ordered the char sui ramen, and asked the waiter if I could have it a little spicy please. He asked 'extra hot'?, I replied no just a little spicy. Nope, apparently... More

I was recommended by a colleague to try this place as it's got good lunch deal. For less than 6 pounds, I could have a starter and a main (normally rice/noodles dish). I had stir fry chicken noodles and prawn pasted bread with sesame topping (starter). I quite like the starter, yet the main dish was relatively average. However, considered... More

Came here on a Wednesday evening. My boyfriend used to come here often and said it was great so decided to give it a try. When I asked to see a menu I was taken around the restaurant to a small room full of take away menus. When we entered the service was a bit cold but fine and quite... More

The lunch menu is cheap and changes every day. It's very good and service is fine. It's a student place but a lot of people go there at lunch from work due to it's pricing and quality. Well worth visiting.

Found this little gem of a place when I was a student. I am a huge lover of the Pad Thai and Sushi platter - always spot on. The lunch deal is also great during the week. Really miss it and frequently revisit when I find myself in Manchester.

If you're looking for somewhere near campus with a good atmosphere, reasonable prices and tasty food, Umami is the place. The £5 lunch deal of two courses is excellent. I've been a few times, both at lunch and in the evening and have always enjoyed it.

So anyone who knows Umami knows they do an incredible lunch deal of £6 for starter and main. The food comes incredibly quickly and it's delicious and reasonable portion sizes. I've believe visited this place over 200 times and it never fails to please me. They used to have a sushi bar and I would like to see that return.... More
