Went with friends for lunch. I had the teriyaki chicken Bento box which came with miso soup.
It looked and tasted delicious. We each ordered something different and everyone was happy with the food. Our waitress was very accommodating and efficient. The restaurant is very small and clean, but hard to find the first time, even though it faces Hwy 111. It is across the hwy from Trader Joe's. I will definitely go back.

I found out that the former owners of Wasabi Restaurant in Palm Springs had opened Umami Seoul in Cathedral City. Had lunch their one Saturday a couple of weeks ago and fell back in love with the food. Took two friends today for lunch and they were wowed. Incredible selection of sushi, Japanese and Korean cuisine. You must check them out. What the valley has been missing. And the service is impeccable - warm and friendly and efficient.

the restaurant is clean and looks like it deserves its A health rating. the managment and the servers and staff are very nice and accomodating and pesronable. We were a party of 7 and some of us ordered the japanese food available and some of us ordered the korean food. we were all very happy. and as we sat and talked through our meals, the restaurant became more and more crowded with a very diverse group of people and we therefore had the opportunity to see many dishes we did not order come out of the kitchen, each plate looked better than another, the prices are reasonable. even the upsells for dessert were handled very tactfully. we plan to return as the aromas coming form all the food was just wonderful the next time i will order the short ribs . the portions seemed to be very large and looked so very tasty. we were told that even the kim chee is home made at the restaurant.the presentation of the dishes is very nice. this restaurant is a lovely find and we highly recommend it and plan to be back within a week.
