1. Location- Excellent. It's on 100 Cromwell Road next to a hotel. 2. Ambience - Pretty much okay. 3. Service- Good. But they couldn't find the menus for 20 mins. Great Filipino waitress though. 4. Menu- Very limited. I took the steak and my friends took the curries and rendang. 5. Food quality- Poor. Steak was over done. Over marinated... More

Food, service and cocktails were great! We were served by Sanne and she was excellent. Would recommend the crispy prawn special if it's on the menu!

Described as Pan Asian it has a small but very interesting menu with specials of the month in addition. Service was excellent and we used it more than we intended as the food was so good. The wine list is reasonable and for a London hotel prices for food and drink were very reasonable indeed.

This restaurant has a modern interior which is quite attractive and comfortable. Tables are spaced well apart and the atmosphere is conducive to conversation. The menu suggests interesting dishes and you can select levels of spicing. In theory. In practice, although dishes were good, spicing was not as suggested, and rather bland for dishes that should have been spicier. However,... More

We arrived and waited for some time before being noticed and seated. We then waited some time before orders were taken. The food was good but starters did not all come out at the same time. Mains were good and did come out at the same time. Food was not too spicy and good sized portions for both single and... More

As a local I wish I had found Umami sooner! I brought my father here after hearing great things about the place and indeed it was wonderful.The dahl and chapati of the Roti Canai worked beautifully, and the Thai fish cakes provided a delicate counterbalance as sharing starters. The Gang Kiew Wan Gai is delicious while packing a subtle punch... More

We have eaten here before but it was a while ago and I honestly don't remember what I had. But I do remember that this is the breakfast room for the hotel next door (Crowne Plaza) which we have stayed at a number of times. Anyway, I certainly remember the food this time as it was so good. There were... More

The food is great, the service (from Sanne) was outstanding! The atmosphere was nice, the music not too loud so that you can have a talk. Definitely would go there again!

This was the 5th time I have eaten here. The meal was excellent however was surpassed by the faultless service by Hortense and the rest of the staff, will be visiting again this week.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
