Located in Regal Kowloon Hotel, Umami serves authentic Japanese delicacies with an extensive choice of Sushi, Wasyoku and Teppanyaki in a causal dining environment.
Umami in Japanese literally means “A Pleasant Savoury Taste”. This fifth sense of taste is highlighted by our Chefs through retaining the freshness and natural flavours while preparing the food to enhance the palatability. We feature top-notched ingredients from different prefectures of Japan and around the world to create foods rich in umami components. Signature items including fresh Sea Urchin, seasonal Shrimp and premium Beef are specially picked and meticulously served to impress every diner.
Sea Urchin – One of the most famous food in Japan, colour ranged from light yellow to bright orange with fresh ocean flavour, creamy and smooth texture. Different varieties of sea urchin are found geographically and seasonally by our chefs and we source the sea urchin from its best origins including Japan, Korea, Canada and more, presenting dishes in form of sushi, sashimi, tempura and grill with scallop.
