Umame is a loan­word from Ja­panese which means pleas­ant sa­vory taste, as ‘umai’ is de­li­cious and ‘mi’ trans­lates into ‘taste’. Much like its name, Umame, the fine din­ing restau­rant in Mum­bai, brings to you some of the finest and never seen be­fore Pan-Asian de­lights. The dé­cor at Umame beau­ti­fully compliments the sub­tle flavours of the food and also houses a lovely al-fresco area from where you can en­joy the city view.

The de­li­cious fare served at Umame is a labour of love from Far­rokh Kham­bata; one of the city’s most suc­cess­ful restau­ra­teurs. While the dim­sums are soft, suc­cu­lent and cooked to per­fec­tion, the sushi and sashimi are pre­pared from fresh in­gre­di­ents and keep up the au­then­tic­ity of taste. Mak­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence all the more in­ter­est­ing is Umame’s ver­sion of sushi such as the Tiger Rolls- Creamy Spicy Shrimp with Nori- Sea­weed and Takuan-Pick­led Daikon – both a must-try.

Whether it is the Ba­li­nese minced lamb on sug­ar­cane skew­ers with sweet chilli dip­ping sauce, the Steamed Grouper Filets with Raw Mango and Young Gin­ger, or the Eight Trea­sure Veg­eta­bles in Fer­mented Black Beans and Chili Oil, you can’t help but no­tice how each dish stands out for its taste, tex­tures and es­pe­cially the unique pre­sen­ta­tion.

Th­ese gour­mand creations are fur­ther aug­mented by a com­pre­hen­sive wine list, de­lec­ta­ble cock­tails and a well-stocked bar. Be­fore you call it a wrap, make some room for the ex­tra­or­di­nary desserts. ‘My Sweet­est Mis­take’ is a rich choco­late mousse with a top­ping of berries served with hot choco­late sauce – is a ‘mis­take’ you must com­mit. The Pe­can Crème Brule with Man­darin Or­ange foam is a sen­sory de­light, with each bite giv­ing you burst of flavours.
