Best curry I’ve had in a long time! The lamb was deliciously tender and the champagne cocktails made for a fun night. Staff are so lovely!

We were staying in Birmingham for the weekend and trip advisor recommended Unami. So glad we visited. The vegetarian food was lovely but above all we were so impressed with how personable and friendly the staff were. Mitzey explained how it was a family business...and bought us a free drink whilst introducing himself and asking about us. It was clear that it had a great relationship with its locals - regulars were welcomed on first name terms and the servers couldn’t be nicer. We had vegetarian food and it was all delicious, especially the sharing starter.More

Fun and classic Indian dining. Friendly, laid-back but yet elegant fusion flavours paired with great wines and excellent cocktails. Highly recommend!

We haven’t eaten here in a while and I have missed it so much. All the staff are very professional but really friendly and helpful with the menu choices. I chose a beautiful seabass dish with vegetable mash, lemon rice, my other half had chicken...korma, dansak and coriander naan, all were stunning and washed down with red wine and an IPA. Beautiful restaurant in Harborne that I would highly recommend. I am looking forward to the new menu coming soon. Please support these independents they really are unique.More

I visited my son who works temporarily in Birmingham. The first night we went to Asha's, where we paid a lot of money to sit next to the entrance and got nothing of the ambiance! Compared to Asha's, the food at Umami, is so much...better and the service so much friendlier! Friday night at Asha's was a disappointment & Saturday night at Umani a big surprise.....More

As a group of friends we visited and were unfortunately sorely disappointed. Out of the 6 of us two of us received very poor meals . The rest was passable. The atmosphere was perfectly nice snd the staff were polite, alas I would never visit...again as it was the poorest curry I have probably ever had. Rubbery tasting paneer , dipped in what tasted like a bowl of ketchup without a vegetable in sight. My friends meal was so sweet she was unable to eat it. It also looked like a bowl of ketchup.More

Brilliant service and delicious food. We ordered on dish that had a taste that my daughter disliked. The staff instantly offered to replace this with another dish and that arrived really quickly. The staff were friendly and engaging and very generous. All in all an...excellent restaurant.More

We had a lovely time at Umami, with good drinks (including a very characterful cocktail menu) and great food. The staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating and the restaurant area is recently refurbished, and although it was quiet when we visited there was a great...atmosphere. Would definitely return.More
