Got half of each type of roll for a total of $17.20. This place is delicious and it’s always been my guilty pleasure... but seriously? $17 for one full roll? After eating this healthy but not-so-filling meal, I have to fast for the next 2 lunches alr

I get that the ingredients are a lot but I’ve had similar rolls in CBD for way cheaper :/ Aussie Roll where you at!

Delicious and tender beef bowl for only $10 (before GST) with Beyond! Would definitely come back again because it’s really worth it. Our server, who I suspect was the owner of the place, was also really friendly and personable.

But I wish that the rice had more seasoning (with teriyaki sauce or something)! It was a bit dry with just the egg yolk and the creamy white sauce.

The star of this meal is clearly the cold udon. The katsu was okay, but I found the Japanese rice to be disappointing in texture. The rice and udon set I chose was one of the cheaper sets (~$17) but if you wanted to get chirashi or anything fancier the sets could cost up to $29. And that’s EXCLUDING the drink and dessert in the Burpple deal 😬😬😬

The Burpple Beyond set came with a drink (I ordered a $3 Houjicha) and a dessert. I loved the matcha and black sesame ice cream! The black sesame was really rich and creamy.

Paid around $14 per pax after Burpple Beyond. Personally, I wouldn’t come back for the set because I think it’s not really worth it, especially since I didn’t really like the rice. I’d maybe come back for the udon though and get some of their cheaper mains.

Got the L bowl which was super filling and really hit the spot. Very generous portions of beef for $15 per pax after Burpple Beyond! One of the best beef dons I’ve had. And for this price point, it’s really a steal!

Would recommend coming at off peak hours, as the shop is rather small and the tables are placed closely together.

My all time favorite... I get this every time I’m here so it’s 10/10 for me, especially at this price point. What’s interesting about this place is that their rice is always really vinegary. It gives a nice kick to the don, and it’s quite unique to Umi Nami.

Paid $8.80 after Burpple Beyond

This was really good for this price point! Unagi at a cheaper price point is usually very hit-or-miss, so this was a pleasant surprise.

Paid $8.50 per pax after Burpple Beyond

The ice cream was a bit too sweet for us and got jelat after a while. But if you’re in the mood for something sweet, this is always a good spot

Paid $13 for this.

Got the smaller portion of the salmon bowl and the truffle beef bowl. Preferred the truffle beef bowl because of its richer flavor.

Though the salmon was generously portioned, I found the salmon cubes to be unevenly sized and shaped. It wasn’t really bite-sized and it made me feel like a bear eating huge chunks of raw salmon by the river stream lmao. BUT PORTIONS GENEROUS SO IT’S ALL GOOD

Paid around $8.22 per pax after Burpple Beyond

The broth was light and not too salty! Really liked the yuzu flavor in the soup + yuzu bits on top of the soup. This is a filling and healthy (?) meal that isn’t too hard on the wallet. Would be back if I’m in the area!

Paid $6.50 with Burpple Beyond.

Super worth and filling lunch for only $6.50 after Burpple Beyond!! Rich and creamy broth with a hint of spice.

Would come back again and try other flavours

We got this for free for giving a review online lmao

It’s okay for a free dish, but it’s nothing life changing! A bit oily too but hey it’s a fried dumpling.

For lamb fans - this is quite worth it! We got 250g of lamb for around $13.5 after Beyond. Only gripe would be that the sauce used to cook the lamb was too sweet.

Personally, I’m not a lamb fan because I really don’t like the smell. Some lamb dishes don’t have that lamb-y smell, but this did. So if you really hate the smell of lamb like me, this isn’t the dish for you.

no $ but rlly hungry
