Australian Chef, Scott Hallsworth, was commissioned to ensure the authenticity of the meals at UMI. Hallsworth’s love affair with Asian cuisine began when he was asked to promote the Australian-owned Hayman Resorts in Singapore and Taiwan. After fine-tuning his skills, he worked at Nobu London and Nobu Melbourne as Head Chef for 7 years. Highly skilled in the art of Japanese cuisine and with a passion for pushing gastronomic boundaries, Hallsworth has a hands-on approach to all of his projects.
UMI has a seating capacity for 250 guests, and will satisfy diners looking for tasty, healthy, modern Japanese eating options. It also has a stylish 80-seater terrace bar. As well as tantalising cuisine, the restaurant boasts picturesque panoramic vistas across the ocean, complete with stunning sunsets.
The look and feel of UMI fell on the capable shoulders of Gregor Bremer of Soda Design. Remarkable features include the illuminated Japanese papyrus-script bar top and the glowing armoire centrepiece, as well as two bold, yellow crystal chandeliers.
The bar has been designed to be the showpiece of the restaurant and a glamorous, social node. Walls, embossed with Japanese pattern work, encapsulate the restaurant, which features custom-designed furniture, Japanese foliage and floating clouds of more than 50 solid glass pendant lights.
Situated in Victoria Road, the scenic drive that runs from Bantry Bay through to Llandudno, this restaurant can be reached from both Sea Point and Hout Bay, simply by following the Main Road. You'll find Umi Restaurant directly opposite Camps Bay Beach.
