Umai is a Japanese sushi restaurant located in Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, London.

The project was appointed to Fileturn at short notice and we were given only four weeks to complete the entire fit-out of the new unit. Our team worked day and night, seven days a week to ensure the project was finished with plenty of time before the Mayor of London officially opened of the shopping centre.

The small unit of 100 sq. m was open to the mall on one elevation, with bespoke display shelving on the other three elevations, produced by Fileturn’s joinery contractors. The design consisted of a central island kitchen unit that was supplied by Denton’s Catering and the extract duct work by Chapman Ventilation. A large amount of bamboo and slate has been used within the fit-out to create the Japanese theme.
