Versatile options; needs more spice - Edit

I'm so pleased that Umami is open in downtown Bangor. They are a noodle bar, and you can basically customize your bowl with your choice of broth, noodles, and toppings. For protein, they have tofu and portobello mushrooms, and they have a diverse variety of veggies that you can add to the bowls. My only wish (and this is probably just a personal quirk) is that they have a bit more heat/spice/flavor in the base broth. After visiting several times, I finally realized that I need to make ample use of their seasonings bar in order to attain the right spice level. If you like a bit more spice, I recommend doing the same thing. It would also be great to have the option to add extra noodles to the bowl.

Pros: Open late!, Customize bowls with your favorite ingredients

Cons: not spicy/flavorful enough (for me, anyway)

love it here! - Edit

I love this place! The atmosphere is very relaxing and nice. The staff are super kind, helpful and knowledgable about what is and isnt vegan! Lots of seating and this place is not only great for ramen but at night it has a bar on the opposing end with a pool table and great night life! My only issue is that the portions are very small. I asked for cabbage for an extra $1 charge and only had two small pieces of cabbage in all of the ramen.

Delicious Vegan Food! - Edit

The decor is rather humble, fast food style benches, but the food is great. You can build soups like you would build a burrito at Chipotle. The veggie broth is very flavorful, they have multiple veg options (tofu, portabella, and lots of add-ons---the shitake is fantastic). There is also a premade Vegan Bowl on the menu as well as a couple of veggie appetizers (scallion pancakes, edamame). There are also lots of fun sauces at the sauce bar to add on. Very flavorful, hearty meal. Will eat again.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, friendly staff, vegan word

Cons: Casual seating is a bit stiff.
