From the looks of it, it didn't stand out as a place that could provide gourmet style food...but it really did! Our group of 12 ordered a large sampling of nearly everything on the menu and every item was, without fail, pleasing. Of note were the ribs and Calamari. Staff was just so nice and helpful and spoke great English. So good we actually went back the very next night (which we NEVER do while traveling). Will need mosquito repellent if sitting outside.

We went to Yumi on a special anniversary and really liked it. The food is best described as Japanese-Fusion but they do not have raw fish (quality issue in Cambo). A nice change from the quite bland Cambodian fare.
The food, especially the ribs, is superb. They have an Ok wine list. The staff is very friendly and attentiv but not intrusive.
Great restaurant.

This was my favourite Phnom Penh eatery. It's a gorgeous restaurant, tucked away in the back streets of BKK1. Terrific cocktails, lovely decor but the menu is really what makes this place such a treat.

Yumi is a petite restaurant, bar and grill in a garden like setting. Caspar von Hofmannsthal the propieter and his staff have managed to pull off a menu combining sushi (with cooked fis) and BBQ ribs, both amongst some of the best that I havd anywhere. You have to try the ribs which have a great tangy and spicey sause with meat that practically melts in your mouth. They also have weekly specials. They also have a great bar and drink menu. Although it is in a can, the beer is always ice cold. All is reasonably priced. I have liveThe staff are always attentive and friendly. The water glass is always full as is the dring glass. d in Phnom Penh for nearly four years and this has consistently been one of my go to places. Located at No 29a, Street 288 between Monivong and Street 63 in Boeung Keng Gang 1. Enjoy!

Yumi was recommended to us by a friend, so glad we went! Lovely little restaurant with great service food and cocktails.
We had the edaname, gyoza, tempura and a few other things I can't remember. All were delicious!
