Two Michelin Stars, London
Reviewed by Justine Murphy, CEO of mymuybueno – January 2016
Umu restaurant opened its doors in 2004 in Mayfair, it was the first Kyoto kaiseki restaurant in Britain. The restaurant is part of the MARC group, which also owns The Greenhouse in Mayfair (where I will be dining soon too). In 2015, Umu was awarded two Michelin stars.
Of course I opted for the tasting menu to of course try as much as possible, and I ordered one extra dish that I could not resist. Head Chef Yoshinori Ishii was present on my visit.
