Philosophy

Umami is Copenhagen's Japanese-French fusion restaurant where unique experiences are for the many, not the few. The dining experience is based on the Japanese culinary philosophy of natural, seasonal ingredients, which is intensified and highlighted by the substance and tradition of French cuisine. We go for the best of both worlds.

Both the restaurant and the bar are for those of you who want high quality, great tastes, and creativity. Simply put, Umami is modern and informal, down to earth but ambitious. 

Greater unity

With a simple concept, Umami aims to introduce tastes and expressions in a price range that allows more people to take part, and we're doing just that without compromising on the experience as a whole; décor, service, knowledge, food, and drink come together in greater unity. 

Grounded in a great commitment to professional gastronomy, we at Umami would like to share our passion for modern cuisine. 

More than just sushi

The restaurant offers an extensive and intensive introduction to the entire Japanese cuisine, which includes fish, meat, and vegetarian dishes. If you're not hungry enough for a big dinner, a humble bowl of noodles and a Kirin beer will hit the spot. Japanese cuisine is more than just sushi. 

Umami's sushi bar doesn't require a reservation, you can just show up and get a thorough introduction to sushi's various ingredients and combinations. 

In order to offer our guests the best total experience, Umami also has an ambitious bar. Our selection of wines, saké, and cocktails makes Umami the obvious social gathering point, even after you've eaten.

This is the new Umami. Welcome!
