50% off Japanese Fusion Cuisine Cash Voucher @Umami Cafe. Only RM 10 instead of RM 20. Non Halal. This deal is from MyImart. Worth the valus as the price in the menu is quite reasonable range from RM 4.90-RM 13.90 for food and RM 2.90 to RM 9.90 for drinks.

 Umami 旨味 is a loanword from the Japanese umami (うまみ) meaning pleasant savory taste.旨味 Umami (good taste) is used for a more general meaning, when a particular food is considered delicious.

Umami Cafe is cozy and a perfect place for casual dining. There is a wide selection of Chinese and Japanese cuisines but dishes that you should definitely not miss out on are the home-made Japanese ramen, gyoza, cold ramen and chasu (As stated in MYImart Website).


Umami Cafe is located at Bandar Menjalara, Kepong. This area is easy to locate on the first floor. Quiet place and suitable for youngsters to hang out or small gathering as the seating environment is warm and cozy ambiance. 

From their menu, i ordered the above Umami Ramen - RM 9.90. Signature shoyu homemade Ramen. Large portion, but the taste is really different from other Ramen that i have taste so far. Not to my expectation and the soup based is a little salty. Umami ramen comes with two slice of tiny pork with half egg and seaweed.

As you can see the comparison from their menu, the bowl of Umami ramen is different. 




Oyako Don - Deep fried Chicken Chop served on top of the rice with teriyaki sauce and egg -RM 13.90. I am satisfied with this dish, portion can be shared for two person. Chicken Chop is perfectly done, and crispy. Recommended to try this Appetizing Oyako Don.

RoseHip Hot Tea RM 4.90. Warm and sweet hot tea.

Very disappointing side dish called 'Gyoza'. For the price of RM 7.90, i was thinking to ask for refund or make complain to ordered another side dish. You can see the presentation of this 'Gyoza' is really unacceptable and each pieces is BURNT!. The taste if you ask me? TASTELESS. I wonder how the cook can served this type of dish to customers. When  i have my first bite, i can't felt there is ingredient inside. Watery dumpling with little small pieces of meat and vegetable inside only. Each pieces of dumpling is badly done.


Boardgame available



Comfortable seating area with bean bags and interior design is spacious and clean.

Outdoor seating area with larger sofa to hang out with friends. Overall i find this place is more suitable for youngsters and the service is really bad. Only one staff is taking the orders, serving food and clearing the table during weekends. I will not visiting this place for second time.
