The food was amazing! We had seitan udon noodles and beef udon noodles and the dishes were packed full of fresh complex flavours. The service was very friendly and punctual. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a very tasty food value meal.

Japanese-style restaurants are unusual and this one is very well done. They include chopsticks and the dishes feel very authentic- I had a pork ramen and it came in a wooden bowl with a wooden spoon and chopsticks (knife and fork were included too). The ramen flavour was delightful and I had a Taiyaki for dessert (a fish-shaped chocolate-filled pancake with ice cream). The Taiyaki was more or less the same taste as a Nutella pancake but in the shape of a fish. The portion sizes are also generous. Update: ate there again and had the fresh prawn katsu special (pictured). Again, the taste blew me away. The prawns melted in my mouth and the sides went with it perfectly- the only downside was the chillis were a bit too hot for my liking, so I left them. Had the apple gyoza for dessert and it was a bit like apple crumble slices wrapped in pastry with a caramel sauce.

Umi went above and beyond, earning my utmost admiration and a wish for a sixth star if it were possible! The service extended exceptional friendliness, accommodating my large party at short notice for a birthday celebration. Their efficiency, warm demeanor, and even the delightful surprise of a complimentary cocktail truly exceeded expectations. The presentation of dishes at Umi was a visual delight, artfully composed and generously portioned. The flavors showcased a dedication to quality ingredients and innovative recipes, setting them apart from typical Asian cuisine. The staff demonstrated commendable teamwork in effortlessly handling the bill-splitting process for our group of eighteen. Additionally, engaging in conversation with the owner added a personal touch, enhancing our dining experience. Umi proved to be the perfect venue for my birthday celebration, deserving of the recognition it has yet to fully receive. Without a doubt, it stands as the highlight of my culinary experiences thus far. When I return to Tenby I will certainly eat at Umi again!

Enjoyed a delicious Japanese inspired meal. Something a bit different on offer in Tenby. Colourful dishes and something for everyone, ie gluten free, veggie vegan offerings. Would recommend ūüĎĆ

Honestly from the moment I walked it to I walked out faultless! I could go on and on about how good the experience was, but just read all the other reviews. Im new to these flavours so if your like me ask the staff and they will talk you through the menu and customise it to your taste bud. The staff and the service they gave 10/10 food 10/10 If you going to moan about price go over the road pay £12 for your frozen burger! If you want a sublime meal with immense flavours, this is the place!! Drinks are very reasonable for the area!

Absolutely delicious, great food and wonderful service. We went with our dog and toddler and they were fantastic with both. The food was great as was the cocktail! We had edamame and prawns to start, donburi scallops and udon prawns for main. With a kids salmon and udon noodles. Highly recommend!

Was excited to try here having read great things about their street food. Service was great, we got there before dinner service started and it was pretty much full by 1800. Its new, popular, walk-ins only and you can see why. Be patient...if you don't want to wait, get there when they start serving at 1730. Drinks menu was fantastic, lovely choice of 1 local craft and Asian beers and also some nice Japanese gins and a brilliant whiskey on the menu. Food was as a good as I hoped, fresh, tasty, authentic and filling. Must have gyoza...whenever I see them I must order them so they are a given! The prawns were great and the spicy pork bowl was perfect. It was pretty spicy so just be mindful of what you are ordering. I also had to have the chocolate fish pancake, which, accompanied with the whisky was the perfect end to a perfect meal out. Also to note, we don't have kids but there were quite a few in there, the menu is child friendly and a great learning experience for having little ones try some new things!

Fresh, beautiful food, loads of flavours, fab service. We were a group of 4 with diverse dietary requirements; vegan, veggie, meat-lover, and starch-free. I'd indicated this would be the case in our online booking. The chef had asked the waiter to call her down when we arrived, which he did promptly. The chef could not have done more to accommodate our needs, and the waiter was on the case too. Instead of the usual 'as normal with something taken away' approach to special dietary requirements, the chef went out of her way to create something truly appetising and delicious for my friend: salmon and an exceptional salad. Loads of delicious vegan options on the menu for me, too. Highlights included a starter on the specials menu - tempura enoki mushrooms and the cos/edame/seaweed salad - also a starter, that could easily serve 2 or 3. Delightful, attentive service and fab food. Thank you so much!

Super-fresh food and an interesting drinks menu We visited as a family of four. We had squid and edamame to start, followed by teriyaki chicken, scallop, bacon and avocado donburi, prawn donburi and chicken from the children's menu. Super-fresh food cooked perfectly, which we all enjoyed. I would happily eat the pickled veg all day as it was so crunchy and tasty! The staff were friendly and took good care of us. Range of gluten-free options and an interesting selection of drinks including local beers and spirits (can recommend the Still Wild sweet rosso vermouth).
