Sumi Open Kitchen
Very enjoyable experience authentic, friendly and attentive service! Food flavoursome and generous
Excellent authentic Japanese food. Chic dining room decor. Great ambience. We had a really lovely night.
We loved our experience and our dinner at Sumi Open Kitchen and already planning another visit. Thank You
Sumi Open Kitchen is amazing! The food was absolutely delicious and unlike anything else you will find in Noosa. If you like delicious, authentic Japanese food, you will love Sumi Open Kitchen!
A gift voucher from my foodie sister, thankyou Jen, meant a wonderful night out at this fabulous eaterie. The food was delicious, the service excellent and meeting Giles, chef and owner, for a quick chat made the evening all the more enjoyable. The quail and the beef were agreed winners with an appreciation for the vege component of every course (we did 6). It is a small space and quite tight so neighbouring conversations intruding is inevitable but that didn't detract from the cultural experience of Japanese fine dining... interesting tastes and textures beautifully crafted and presented. Love the pretty plates, dishes, baskets and the super clean, neat and tidy open kitchen format. Thankyou Giles for the opportunity to share your passion and good luck in your unique venture! Diana and Ian.
Food was so beautiful and loved the staff so friendly and great service. We enjoyed our dinner and please go and dine there what a great experience we had
The fixed menu is an interesting concept. The plus is that you get to taste different foods and flavours. The negative is that some of the courses may not be to your taste. This was certainly the case with our meal at Sumi. Overall we enjoyed the meal and the experience.
I've never eaten Japanese, and in the past, would never choose to. I was given a voucher for Sumi Open Kitchen for my birthday. Even on the afternoon, I was hesitant to go. My husband said, let's just give it a go. To say the food was outstanding is an understatement! It was delicious... Every morsel had been carefully created on each plate. Staff were brilliant! Totally recommended!
Lovely intimate atmosphere. Interaction with chef. Beautiful presentation of food. Perfect cooking. Wonderfully balanced food.
It was the best Japanese meal since we came back from Japan last year. Humble yet authentic, with attention to detail. Just what true Japanese food should be!
Sumi Open Kitchen was perfectly accommodating to our needs. Food was fantastic and chefs were interactive and friendly. Tucked away, this gem is perfect for a gathering of friends over wine or just simple for a romantic date night. Thanks Sumi!
Exceptional food and service. A wonderful dining experience.
Sumi’s Japanese food is sooooo good.
It’s more than Japanese food in Japan.
Even though I’m Japanese
I’m coming back.
After reading previous reviews we can confirm the food was excellent both in quality and presentation.
Only comment would be that if you require a more substantial meal , order the 6 course menu.
This was our second visit to Sumi Open Kitchen and was just as wonderful as when we were holidaying in Noosa almost a year ago. Excellent food and service, intimate atmosphere and we really enjoyed watching the kitchen work their magic. The umeshu (Japanese plum wine) took me straight back to memories of Japan and was top shelf. Highly recommend.
Amazing beef would recommend will be back when we head to nossa again
I will recommend to everyone! Fantastic food, value, theatre and service
Absolutely delicious food, so much work goes into every mouthful
Amazing enthusiastic chef and crew. I would recommend a bar seat in front of the kitchen as the cooking process is like a chamber orchestra in action. Recommend their tofu.
Amazing food, excellent whiskeys and top notch service.
Highly recommended checking it out for your self.
Will definitely be back
Wonderful venue, wonderful staff, wonderful food. Incredible experience.
Wonderful dining experience..... exceptional food. Very friendly helpful staff. Enjoyed the open kitchen style. Its our new go to restaurant.
Great local find offering creative and thoughtful Japanese cuisine utilising quality local produce. Friendly and attentive staff. We will be back soon!
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!
