My wife and I had dinner there last Saturday, as we are Japanese food and overall Japanese culture enthusiasts. The food was really great, delicate, well presented, modern, beautiful; service was extremely good; price was a bit expensive, but then again you know what you are getting into if you have booked here. However, the big problem is that tables are way too close to each other, which means that, if you are unlucky as we were and have a rude idiot sitting in the table next to you it could become a very painful dining experience. So overall, a Michelin restaurant, very expensive, should never have tables so close to each other… it ruins the great decoration, atmosphere, service, etc…

Our meal at UMU was so dreadful that my husband and I actually had a big row on the way home. We are foodies and enjoy a great dining experience and fantastic food. We certainly did not get this here. The food was tasteless and bland, so bland I actually felt cross eating it. We couldn't understand a single word the waiter was saying when he was describing each dish (we had the tasting menu) and then at the end of the most disappointing tasting menu I have had anywhere in the world they forgot to signify the end of the meal, so we sat twiddling our thumbs for some time, eventually had to ask if that was it, yep, that was it, we were then handed the bill, no request if we would be interested in ending the meal with anything. This is a very expensive restaurant for absolutely no reason. In fact I felt ripped off because it was so dreadful. My stomach is still churning from the eel dish (so bland I was tempted to cry into it to season it with my tears) and then the asparagus themed desert which followed. Most certainly will never go back. Only if I wanted to end the evening with a divorce.
