Sumi Open Kitchen
We had counter seats which were brilliant as we can watch the chefs cooking effortless. The food was delicious and delicate in flavours. The sake recommended complimented the food extremely well. Service was attentive and good explanation were provided with each course. The chef served sometimes and took time to chat with the diners. Friendly and casual place serving delicious authentic Japanese food. A must do if you are in the area.
Very delicate work with amazingly fresh products and amazing combination of flavours and textures.
Great tasting Menu
Servings are relatively small but quite complex and beautifully presented.
Very different authentic Japenese dishes would highly recommend.
Saki tasting great way to try different wines that match well with the food.
Excellent menu with a combination of exquisite flavours. I really am looking forward to another evening there soon
Great birthday dinner. Delicious food and superior service from everyone. Best Japanese meal for a long time. Will definitely be back.
Perfect dinning, perfect food, perfect staff!
Delicious food, quality produce, personalized service. Would highly recommend
What an amazing diner we got. Away from the crowd but close enough frim the main place, this restaurant is one of a kind. The atmosphere is incredible, the decor just perfect and the food out of this world. We choose the 6-service and thank goodness we did. Each dish is complex with various flavour and texture.
Noosa, you have one of the finest place to eat and the price and service is excellent
Sad that I come from a far away foody place like Montreal. If ever I come back here. This is a most
If you have developed a taste for Japanese food and want a wider exposure, this is the place to go. The degustation style brings together a wide range of delicate flavours in small offerings combined with a wide range of first class Sakes (or wine if you prefer). It's certainly not cheap but in terms of flavour and experience - inexpensive.
Unbelievable. This was a great find. The food was as good if not better than we’ve had in Tokyo. The owner (Giles) is just passionate about Japanese food and it shows. We’d recommend this place to anyone who loves Japanese food and will definitely be back
Wonderful in every way!
What a find! Incredible food, amazing presentation, YUM!
Just as good the second time as it was the first. Great food and service.
Always great. We are locals and Sumi is one of our favourite places to dine in Noosa. We have enjoyed with just the two of us and also with a small group. Everyone we take are as impressed as we are.
Always a pleasure
Our second time dining here, great experience all round, lovely people
An incredible look into the art and intrigue of Japanese cooking from 2 incredible people both highly devoted to the culture.
Best meal out in years, we felt truely spoilt! The four courses included amazing foods that were prepared with passion. We were enlightened with a short explanation of the Japanese background of each item we were served. Recommend the Sake tasting!
Great, authentic food, beautifully presented and prepared. Interesting wine and sake list. 4/6 course set menu is a bit risky with less well known food styles, but worked well for us. Service generally good, but lost a star for us because staff began cleaning up and shutting down around us as we were eating our meal.
Ambience is a bit lacking as it brightly lit and plain decor.
Excellent addition to local food scene.
Sumi Open Kitchen provides an exciting and scrumptious dining experience. There is definitely a new kid on the block (watch out Wasabi). Every course of the set menu experience was delightful, innovative and most importantly delicious. Don’t miss this one.
We have been here twice. Both times we enjoyed every mouth full. In fact I could eat it every night of the week. Delicious!
Excellent food with simple menu options. Great staff and hands on owners. A must when in Noosa.
We had a great dinner here. It is small and the service is excellent. Sitting at the bar watching your food being cooked and chatting to the chef while they cooked was a highlight. We had the six course set and it was superb. Reasonable value for the quality too.
Excellent food and some interesting wine and sake choices
Fabulous find in Noosa. The food is phenomenal and the staff really know what they're doing. The chef has created a brilliant menu with some beautiful flavours.
Do not pause.... book this venue. One of the most outstanding meals I have ever had. The owner/chef is a true artisan and so passionate about his food. It is outstanding. It is a new venture for him and I think everyone should experience this amazing taste. We had the $75 set menu as there were a couple of items we wanted to try and we were so glad we choose the combination. The wine list was a bit different and we loved our selection from Margaret River. Just enjoy a new venture with as much enthusiasm as the Chef.
Beautiful and amazing food, capped off by a terrific wine and sake menu. Would not hesitate to recommend, as will absolutely be returning.
Innovative yet authentic; presentation artistic and pleasing; staff attentive, knowledgeable and enthusiastic; food excellent; wine fine. Giles puts much effort, skill and care to his menu to gain and maintain a reputation of offering the best in Japanese cuisine. It's not cheap but diners would understand highest quality balances this out. Great experience!
Limited menu but food very well executed delicious and interesting .
Matched wines not great .
Great experience, wonderful service. Very Very good food and wine/sake. I warmly recommend Sumi.
First visit and we really enjoyed every aspect of this nice restaurant. Service was excellent with an added touch of an explanation behind every dish that was served. The food was beautiful and served at a nice pace as we had the 6 course tasting menu. Small but nice selection of wines. Absolutely worth a visit if you want something more authentic but without the Wasabi price.
We had such a special experience at Sumi. The food was exceptional, with delicate, delicious flavours that were surprising but also perfectly complemented each other. We loved the intimacy of sitting at the bar, watching our food be prepared and talking with the kitchen staff about our meal as it was made. In particular, the staff were lovely. A very special experience!
A++ and a great Asian addition to the area. The food was local and cooked to perfection. The chef and staff are interactive and knowledgeable on the product they serve. I will be back in a heart beat with friends. Thank you.
We loved SUMI! - the staff were very knowledgeable and food/wine matching delicious. If you are after a unique dining experience and looking to try something a little bit different than the norm in Noosa SUMI is the place to go.
