Male waiter/supervisor was quite rude, bordering on inappropriate/creepy. when we asked that he check on our order after waiting 20mins, he rudely responded “it’s coming. sushi takes time ‘darling’” in a patronising tone. i doubt he would have done the same had we been male. He made the experience very uncomfortable.

The portions were a good size, the food didn't taste amazing there are definitely better sushi restraunts in Edinburgh. I ordered 3 dishes and only 1 that came was right. The service was pretty hot and cold to be honest but certainly not the worst place I've ever been.

Sushi was really good and fresh however tonkatsu ramen was really disappointing and not at all representative of authentic tonkatsu ramen. The tempura was also not authentic as it was not breaded in the normal Japanese way

I left Umai feeling that the majority of the food we sampled (mainly sushi) was not as good as the competition in Edinburgh. Whilst it wasn't bad it just was a bit bland compared with Umi or bentoya for example. Nothing really stood out...in saying that I would visit again but just not as a priority

Food was plated beautifully. Taste was delicious and really fresh. The restaurant had a cool Studio Ghibli vibe which I loved! - if you’re a fan of Totoro you’d love this place! So so cute 💛
