Mori House serves Japanese classics ranging from sashimi to ramen in a casual but stylish minimalist environment. The interior features wooden divisions with Japanese ceramics and statues. The sushi is excellent and fresh. It’s not an exaggeration to say that each dish looks like a work of art. Look out for the special nigiri sprinkled with gold leaf. Other specialties include the golden gate roll, cherry blossom roll and the ahi poke salad. Staff are welcoming and knowledgeable, on hand to provide menu recommendations.
If you’re craving ramen, Umaido is the place to come. The interior has an industrial, modern vibe and the friendly staff are more than willing to explain the different varieties of ramen. The seating arrangements are authentically Japanese with counters lining the serving area and the walls. The ramen broths here are rich and full of flavor. Try the staple Tonkotsu ramen with slices of pork, or for the brave, the spicy miso ramen. Besides ramen, Umaido serves some good side dishes including hirata buns (pork in a steamed bun with a spicy sauce) and grilled octopus balls called takoyaki.

At lunch, they have a buffet which means you can try all the options on offer, but it’s also possible to order à la carte, or even grab a take-away. The staff are friendly and warm, with the owners offering guidance on the menu.
