Introducing MAMI UMAMI – Downtown Dubai’s newest restaurant, bar, lounge and terrace – where the intriguing ingredients, techniques and flair of Japanese cooking are blended with the vibrant culture, colours and flavours of Latin America. Located on the 23rd floor of the Renaissance Downtown Dubai Hotel, MAMI UMAMI treats guests to a truly unique experience, with food to be shared, drinks to excite and an atmosphere to adore, every evening from 6pm to 1am.

MAMI UMAMI takes izakaya-style dining and reimagines it with a modern Latin-American twist, to create a shared dining experience that embraces the unconventional and makes it uniquely memorable. Executive Chef Carlos Rodriguez has carefully crafted a menu filled with an eclectic array of mouth-watering dishes, divided into nine categories, enjoyed in any order, and designed to ignite the palate by unlocking the iconic umami (fifth) taste.

Guests can indulge in rich, soulful, Latin-American recipes, creatively combined with traditional Japanese ingredients and techniques, and topped off with captivating colour and flair. From an irresistible assortment of Nippy Nippon (cold), Hotto Mami (hot), Lo Crudo (Raw), and Tempura y Frita (fried) dishes, to an inspired selection of Carbon De Japon (grilled), La Mami Umami (signature), Sushi/Sashimi, Maki, and Sweet Wasabi (dessert) options – the food at MAMI UMAMI is about so much more than just taste; it’s about the whole experience.

MAMI UMAMI’s expert mixologists are always on hand to whip up a delicious cocktail creation that is full of exciting flavours, inspired by the tropics of Japan and Latin America, and presented like a masterpiece for the ‘gram. Featuring speciality cocktails infused with Japanese Sake, with the choice of fruity, zesty, spicy, bitter, or umami flavours – the cocktail menu is full of creative concoctions to satisfy any discerning drinker.

The extensive beverage selection at MAMI UMAMI gives guests a world of choice as well as flavour, with Japanese, Latin-American and international grapes, spirits, hops, and much more on offer, enhanced by an inviting atmosphere that evolves with the energy of the vibe. From laidback Latin and Bossa-nova early hours sounds, to funky jazz dinnertime beats, and upbeat Caribbean throwbacks at night, the MAMI UMAMI soundtrack perfectly complements the inimitable fusion of Japanese flair and Latin-American colour, culture and attitude.

For those in search of Latin-American street-food vibes, with a Japanese twist, MAMI UMAMI’s Bar and Lounge is a fun and vibrant hotspot within the venue.
