Umenohana serves refined Japanese
cuisine with a focus on kani-ryori, roughly translated as
crab cuisine and fresh tofu. Like the food, the service is
neat and the staff courteous in the Japanese tradition.

Start the meal with steamed taraba king crab. Naturally sweet and juicy, the crab is steamed at the table before being served with kani su vinegar as a side. While delicious on its own, the vinegar helps to enhance the flavour and aroma of the crab. For a meatier option, try the grilled kuroge wagyu. Set on a fresh salad, this succulent cut of premium Japanese beef is tender and melt-in-the-mouth good. The dressing of orishi ponzu adds a refreshing and zesty note to lighten the dish. Famous for its tofu, Umenohana's hikiage yuba is not to be missed. The soybean milk is served in a simmering hot pot that creates layer upon layer of tofu skin for diners to peel off themselves. Light and fresh, the tofu’s silky and chewy skin makes a great vehicle for the light dashi shoyu and grated yuzu zest. End with a traditional dessert such as nama-fu abekawa, steamed rice and gluten cakes sweetened with bean paste.

Japanese liquor including kojitsushu, sake and whisky predominate. An ample selection of French and Australian wines is also available. For a non-alcoholic drink try tonyu soy milk with kuromitsu brown sugar syrup.
