Good for Veggies. Loved the food. Especially the eggplants and the tofu! Friends had fish that was lovely. Great service.

I really enjoyed the simmered beef in soy sauce--quite rich with some ginger and a little spice--not to mention the free desserts!

Renown for oyster omelet, steam crab over sweet rice and the surprise mochi at the end of every meal. Impeccable service and nice ambience. Do note is u r going in on weekends and peak hours, u better make reservations to avoid disappointment.

Umeko is, actually, a Chinese restaurant, they offer some Japanese dishes but, overall, Chinese cuisine is their specialty. The sashimi mix is very good, highly recommended. The meals are a bit expensive but they are excellent. The service is very good. English menu available.More
