Food and ambience

About
Find Uma Nota’s soul hidden in the details: in its wall art, its steps, the music emanating from the windows, the fragrant spices, the welcoming smile. Nestled in the corner of Hollywood Road and Peel Street, the Brazilian Japanese restaurant & bar brings São Paulo’s Nipobrasileiro street food and cocktails to Soho. Uma Nota is a modern boteco, or botequim, which in Brazil is traditionally known as a meeting place for bohemians looking for a delicious drink, mouth-watering street food and a fun, easy-going vibe. Uma Nota is unpretentious, open-minded, and lively, qualities which are reflected in its design, its food, its drinks and its atmosphere. The music is a mix of both old school and modern

Uma Nota is an exotic restaurant unparalleled in Hong Kong. At the city's hip Soho area, it serves Nikkei cuisine, a fusion of Brazilian and Japanese cooking styles. The lunch menu, with unlimited starters, is a genuine bargain to sample the food. The vegetarian starters...are light, refreshing and unique in the city. Roasted Brussel Sprouts, with a green mayonnaise, is our favorite. The dessert of the day, passionfruit sponge cake, is a lovely finish. Service is impeccable and careful to details. While COVID has caused difficult time in the local dining scene, Uma Nota still maintains its quality and reputation.More

Truly delicious food (I had the burger and my wife took the beef). The salad bar is also very good quality. The service was also super friendly and professional. And to note also a nice gesture from the manager : complementary desert on the house...for our anniversary. Superb, we will come again.More

Good good, good ambience but felt very rushed. We were not told that our table would be held from 7.15 to 8.45 (ended up being more like 8.30) when we booked. The food was good, but the waiters and service rushed us to order drinks,...mains, desert. In fact, one minute after we had said we didn’t want desert, the bill was placed on our table when we had been seated for just 1 hour and were halfway through mains. I understand restaurants have had a tough time during the last year and thus want to maximise revenue, but I wouldn’t recommend this for a dinner unless you wanted to leave quickly. Food and drinks are fun, but the short time ruined this experience.More
