Ton Katsu Ramen is probably the best I've ever had. This little gem in the south loop is a welcome addition to the neighborhood and they always seem busy. Try some of the Sushi and enjoy some of the great areas to walk around the South Loop

We really enjoyed eating at Umai. Their Japanese barbecue skewers were delicious-I got the beef and my husband tried the pork shoulder. He also really loved the mushroom soup. The sushi wasn't the best sushi I have ever had, but I still liked it. We will definitely be returning here in the future.

We both had ramen bowls and they were wonderful and filling. Good service too. Not the cheapest place in town, but the food is worth it.

I've been to Umai twice and gotten ramen both times. Both the traditional and the spicy garlic are to die for. I almost wept as the char - grilled pork melted in my mouth. The hand-pulled noodles are perfectly chewy. The interior has a cool vibe and window seats are good for people watching.

The visit to Umai's was a wonderful surprise with the excellent sushi, beef tataki and the extensive sake menu. The place is busy with a fast turn around on tables, yet you never feel rushed. Reservations are highly recommended, but if you forget, I'd still wait!
