Ever since it opened, I’ve been wanting to eat at Umame the Pan Asian restaurant by famous Mumbai restaurateur Farrokh Khambatta . Ever since he came on the scene, Khambatta has been the rage of Mumbai’s jet set and lovers of Asian food.
It was my birthday and the family decided to go to Umame ( Yes! Finally after years of wanting to go there I got my wish!!!!) and I wasn’t disappointed. The entrance was a bit confusing because of the adjacent lounge which is equally popular for party goers. The dark interiors gave it a sophisticated yet welcoming feel.
Since we specifically wanted to pig out on Sushi we ordered the sushi boat which is actually the perfect choice for a group of Sushi lovers who can enjoy the assortment of sashimi, california rolls and the generous portions of wasabi and pickled ginger
There was a good selection for vegetarians too, so Hubby Dear didn’t go hungry. But what really disappointed was the desserts particularly the hot chocolate souffle/pudding which was sadly very chewy and rubbery.
But all in all it was a great way to spend a birthday and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion.
The restaurant is always heavily booked so do book well in advance ( we booked two months ahead)
