We had dinner in this restaurant on Friday night. The food was good - chicken teriyaki and beef with japanese noodles, seaweed salade and sushis to start with. The sushi's came too quickly to have been made "à la minute" so that was a little disappointing as not the same quality that we were used to in our sushi restaurant... More

We had dinner with our children and the meal was good - sushis and nems were good but the fried chicken for the children was too "fatty". I also had the miso soup and it was good but not the best I have had. The price was decent and the service was good. If you truly know Asian cuisine, this... More

We made reservations for dinner. We were very happy that we did. Yes it was pricey, but worth it. We had a bottle of wine along with a la carte sushi and some soup. Service was good and friendly.

A little on the expensive side but great food, and service. The inside of the restaurant is not much to see but the food was light, fresh and tasty. The food came out quickly and was nice and hot. The ladies running the restaurant were very friendly. I will return.

Went there with a friends last night, we'd never tried this restaurant if it wasn't for the "passport gourmand"deal and I'm really happy we did! Service was great, but, most importantly, the food was awsome :) Really enjoyed the quality of the fish! Moreover the village is really lovely, I'll definitely go again and reccomend this place to any of... More

I would so love to give 5 stars to this restaurant, but I fought to not give it just 3. Everything you could love, beautiful and tasty food, lovely reception and service, fair prices, good wine list... BUT, everything, from the hors-d'ouevres to the main course, was over-salted in the extreme! So sad, because it's unnecessary and really ruined what... More

Fantastic sashimi. We had no expectation when entering the restaurant, but this was amazing! Big sashimi-pieces and beautifully arranged plates. A joy for both the eye and the stomachs. We had the assortment sashimi and their own ume-sushi mix. Every piece was a joy! Highly recommended if you want a break from the Swiss/Italian food.

In the village of Chexbres just off the main street you will find UME, a small and discreet restaurant serving Asian cuisine prepared to excellent standards. Everything we chose (especially the fried beef) was very good, including the vegetables that were actually oriental (and not the usual rice with peas and corn often on offer in Switzerland). The staff was... More

Nice little restaurant, very good sushi (for Switzerland), good and rapid service and reasonable prices. Definitely will be returning! You need to find parking in Chexbres though.

I lived in Japan for a while and in California. Until I went to this restaurant, I thought there were no good Japanese restaurants in Switzerland. The food is really good, with a rather wide selection of Japanese and even some Chinese dishes. The price is absolutely great for Switzerland. In fact, you pay about the same price for a... More
