It can be incredibly frustrating when your favorite restaurant unexpectedly has to close its doors, but fans of this Battle Creek favorite understand. Umami Ramen made the announcement that they would have to close for a short time.

The owners of Umami Ramen made the announcement on the evening of Monday, January 10, 2022, that for numerous reasons, they were shuttering their doors for a short time. No reopening date has been given at this time.

The reasons given for the closure were mainly for "health and wellness". In the announcement, the owners noted that they would be strategizing on how to move forward while dealing with staff shortages and supply chain issues.
