Dataran Mentari ought to be an area with the most steamboat buffet places. Was scheduled to meet a good friend of Shereen's ie. Yee Ling from Taiwan, and they have suggested to come to Umami. The brightly litted signboard surely helps to ensure that you won't miss this house of steamboat, when you are around this area.
When I reached, the table was already all filled with food. They opted for the herbal and tomyam soup. The mentality of coming to buffet is that I usually won't expect the food quality as when I am to pay by ala-carte. Of course, the soup base was a little diluted, however, within acceptable limits.
As its buffet, they have filled up the herbal soup base with lots and lots of golden mushroom. As 1 of them is the member of Umami, we have the privilege to have a bowl of sharksfin soup, each.
I liked Umami, as there wasn't queue here, with such variety of ingredients offered. I would have taken much time to just to count how many of items that were offered on the buffet spread.
If lucky, customers could also get really big sized crab claws.. We had a lot of food that night, filled our stomach with good stuff - fresh scallops, fresh tiger prawns, crab, mussel, fishballs, meatballs, beancurd, mushrooms, lots of vege......
There is also the bbq corner where customers could request for bbq items such as crabs, chicken wings, sate..... The sate here is delicious..
