Our Inspector's view

With its smart Mayfair address, Umu’s fans are prepared to pay handsomely for high-definition food of lightness and bracing freshness, and the stylishness with which the package is achieved. The food is firmly anchored in traditional ways, with Bento-box lunches and various set menus removing the need to agonise over the extensive main menu, the former opening with a precise assemblage of seasonal vegetables and shiitake mushrooms with edamame purée and red miso powder, before going on with a selection of stunning fish and seafood dishes, ringing with resonant freshness and pinpoint seasoning.

About the area

Discover London

The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.

London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
