New Menu Launch Party

Adrain Goldberg Umami team


Umami Indian Kitchen hosted a magnificent party for its new menu launch on Wednesday 22nd June, celebrating its first anniversary since joining Harborne Village. Much like its opening party, the evening was full of delicious food, tasteful entertainment and charming hospitality.

Lead singer Dennis Seaton from Birmingham’s group ‘Musical Youth’ performed, singing old classics and entertaining the crowd. BBC radio and television presenter Adrian Goldberg was one of the many guests to attend. Tasty canapés were served upon arrival and drinks were flowing throughout the evening.

Guests sat down to enjoy five dishes from the new menu, sampling many of its new delightful creations. The dishes were designed for sharing and were accompanied by Chicken Pulao rice and Naan bread. They included -

'Kadhaigoshtkhadda Masala’– lamb delicately flavoured with roasted coriander and cumin seeds.

‘Alleppey fish curry’ -  a delicacy from coastal state of Kerala  - a fish simmered in coconut milk and raw mango curry.

 Vegetarian options were also served. Both dishes, along with many others, will be available on the new menu.

“The new menu features more fish, vegetarian and seasonal dishes” says General Manager Abdul Hoque, “Chef Bajwa has worked in the coastal regions of India, where it is renown for its fish dishes. There will continue to be a variety of meat dishes and many of the customer’s favourites will still be on the menu, though some have been recreated and will have a different twist.’

Alongside its new restaurant menu, Umami are launching a new takeaway box and menu, enabling customers to enjoy food in the comfort of their own home. The branded takeaway box is environmentally friendly, encouraging customers to reuse the box if they collect their food to receive 5% of their next takeaway.

The new menu is available from Monday 27th June.
