He said: "I'm really excited to take on my new role at Umami and am looking forward to fusing classic Indian cooking techniques and dishes with modern influences, to create a strong and varied menu.
"We've been working really hard to create a signature menu to introduce something new to Harborne, which I can't wait for people to try."
Umami general manager Abdul Hoque added: "2015 is an exciting year for the city's culinary scene, and we're delighted to be amongst those with the opening of Umami."
