Bites Tale : After we came out from Umai, it was decided that Umai will be the place we would go for lunch at least once a month!
I won't be writing much on Umai, the new japanese restaurant in town, because she has definitely written a better review than i could possibly be writing. It was because of her review, i just couldn't wait any longer till the weekend to get my hands on the sashimi... i went there for lunch yesterday... despite of my pitiful short hour of lunch.. So, go read it!
I must say that this is the Best japanese restaurant i have been in KK! Even the name suggested so... Umai = Delicious / Tasty! Here's what we ordered:-
This was really good.. comes with tempura, cold soba, chawanmushi, miso soup, fruits & some preserved thingy.. i finished the whole thing... and now as i am typing.. i still think of how fresh and yummy they were!
My friend said this was ok... actually it is nice... but she were thinking of having teriyaki chicken even when we are still on the way there.. unfortunately, the staff at Umai said it's not available yesterday. But she suggested to go there twice a week for lunch, so i guess it was nice too! This set comes with 2 pcs of sashimi, chawanmushi, miso soup, rice & the preserved thingy..
This were equally good as the chirashi set. Terri was right... the sashimi here is much, much better than those at Nagisa,
Hyatt Regency Kinabalu or any Japanese restaurant here. So, next time if you are craving for nice Japanese cuisine... Umai is the place for you. Even i will keep on returning there... there's so much food they provided in the menu, my friend and i wanted to try everything in the menu.. it has now became our mission!! I just hope the "Ninja" (yes, there is 1 ninja who will greet you and show you to the table) at Umai won't get bored seeing us there!
