Greeted at the door by this ninja and waitresses in kimono. That got us even more into the nippon spirit.
Spider makiAnother highly recommended maki, their house specialty (don't remember the name). So yummy.
Teppanyaki Beef set
We also had tempura, soba and a fried prawns dish which I never got near enough to eat nor shoot.
That was Tuesday evening. We came away very impressed with the maki and don set (the presentation, taste and price) but couldn't say the same for the other dishes.
Came Friday, picked up Keshia and Bryan from school early and Bryan suggested Umai for lunch - another excuse to eat Japanese! This round we went for the maki and don sets only.
I wasn't too keen on this because the deep fried prawn in the maki was a tad too hard and salty.
This was really good with plenty of fish roe, wrapped in thin unagi slices and topped with a sweet sauce and dried bonito flakes. Truly a mouthful of sensation.

All the sets and don sets come with chawan mushi (excellent texture and taste),
Pickles plus miso soup and rice.
The don sets are good value for money (priced between Rm10 to Rm18) but for me, the true star of Umai is the maki. I'll go there next just for the maki.
