Overview

Umu, which in Japanese means 'born of nature', is London's first Kyoto influenced restaurant and opened on 1st September 2004. Within five months of opening, Umu won a Michelin star. After four years of dedication to delivering epicurean excellence, Executive Chef Yoshinori Ishii and the team were awarded a second star by the 2015 Michelin Guide.

Situated at 14-16 Bruton Place, Umu serves timeless Japanese cuisine in the heart of Mayfair. The restaurant seats sixty-four: thirty-eight in the main restaurant, ten at the sushi table, twelve at the sake table and another four at the cellar table.

Yoshinori Ishii brings over twenty years of cooking experience to the elegant dishes Umu is famed for. As well as being a highly accomplished chef, he is also a skilled fisherman, potter, and calligrapher. Ishii has a rare eye for artful display and flavour, incorporating his expertise as not only a chef but also a skilled artist into each dish.
