Ume, Surry Hills

Was great to see my mum back in Sydney. 
We took her to lunch at Ume and we've chosen to have 
the seven course degustation with sake. 
This restaurant has been awarded one hat for three years in a row now.
Anticipating great things...

 I was thoroughly impressed with their take on combining 
traditional and modern elements of Japanese cuisine.
The food here is amazing and so delicious. 
Staff was great and attentive. 
A really fantastic experience!
