UMU is authentic in it's Kyoto-style Kaseiki dining in the middle of London. Many small portioned dishes are seasonally selected and beautifully presented for the patron (me) to sample various raw fish varieties and rare japanese specialties (like Zuma this restaurant offers fresh grated wasabi) some of which are imported directly from Japan. I had the delicious experience of eating my way through the Kaseiki Menu, complimented by sake and my favourites were the hamachi, o-toro, the lobster and the waguy beef dish. It is expensive, but the price is justified as this is the only authentic Japanese high end restaurant in London (probably in Europe) that does not get seduced by fusion fashion. For adventurous diners as the menu is very raw.
