Restaurant Umami is located in the premises of an old (renovated) wooden house in Mustamäe district, and it is the “little brother” of Restaurant Leib Resto & Aed. On entering, your first thought might be: Where on earth am I?, as at first glance the place looks more like someone’s backyard. However, step a bit further in and the vibe of Umami changes quite drastically, as the restaurant’s cozy and inviting garden with apple trees and colourful chairs makes you feel at home.

Restoran Umami (3)The restaurant is definitely at its best in the summer, as on a warm sunny day you can have a slow and laid-back lunch or dinner in the garden. When the end of summer arrives and days get shorter, the garden is illuminated with lights crisscrossing from tree to tree, which creates a magical and romantic feeling. By the way, the garden’s apples are used in Umami’s desserts and juices, but extremely hungry customers are also free to pick up these “forbidden fruits” while waiting for their meals! 😉 The restaurant garden can accommodate over 100 guests and there’s also a kids’ play corner inside the house, plus a changing table in the toilets.

The retro interior is quite cozy and offers room for even a bit bigger party, since this two-story building has various different sized rooms, and this makes Umami a good option for those who want to spend a chill-out evening in privacy with their mates or family. Tasty food is on offer and the level of service is also good, but still we must say that the “older brother” Leib is a bit better in every aspect. However, the restaurants are very different and can’t be compared directly, so this doesn’t make Umami a bad place at all. On the contrary, our impressions about the restaurant were so lovely that it deserves a spot on our restaurant recommendation list. Appetizers in Umami cost 8-10€, soups 6€, main courses 12-21€, and desserts 4-9€, and there’s homemade schnapps, which cost 4€ each.
