Umami Steamboat Restaurant at Dataran Mentari

A few days ago, I wrote a blog entry about Nagomi Shabu-Shabu Buffet. This round I'm going to blog about a Chinese hot pot restaurant which I was invited to for food tasting by Karen. This is not any ordinary hot pot restaurant that we can easily find anywhere and so let me tell you why this particular hot pot restaurant is worth going for.

They have a super huge signboard at the restaurant. It wasn't that hard to look for this restaurant but this is the only place that still open along the stretch of shoplots and it's not visible from the main entries of the smaller roads. Anyway, it should be fine if you are familiar with the roads in Dataran Mentari.

The main entrance of Umami Steamboat Restaurant.

They have a lot of seats and tables to cater large crowd from family, small groups to even company dinner.

Some basic dining set on the table with the hot pot.

Interior is quite simple but the white paint makes the place looks kinda big.

There are plenty of fresh food selections that might suit your craving!

They serve fresh seafood, noodles, vegetables, etc...

Not to forget that they also serve fried food and some salad at the side for customers to munch on while waiting for the food to be cooked in the hot pot.

A plate of fresh slices of fish.

A plate of sliced abalone.

A plate of fresh shellfish.

Fresh prawns and crabs.

Clam, bamboo clam and mussels.


Fresh beef!

Fresh lamb meat!

Sayap ayam panggang.

Some barbecued food

BBQ Chicken Wings, this one was quite good!

BBQ Prawns

Satay... it's a bit hard, maybe because it has already been cold.

We had HK Herbal Soup and Fish Head Soup side by side in the hot pot on our table. You can also choose different soup base which is the Umami Chicken Soup, Thai Tomyam Soup and Umami Pepper Soup.

Dump everything inside, then we cover it with the lid and wait for it to boil.

Cooling down the throat with eight different selections of ice cream for dessert after the very filling hot pot meal!

The price is RM26.80+ all-you-can-eat buffet. Kids & Senior Citizen Half Price.
Operation hours is from 5pm - midnight everyday.

Overall, it was quite satisfying with so many different choices of food and it's value for money. The best thing that I found was that we can have 2 different soup in the same pot instead of one. I tried 4 out of 5 soup in Umami and the best was the HK Herbal Soup. The Thai Tomyam Soup was actually quite thick but too salty for my liking. Hope the next visit, I'll get to try their Umami Pepper Soup.
