Sumi Open Kitchen
We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our evening at Sumi. Faultless!
We were seated at a 2-seater table next to a very rowdy party of 8 - 4 couples - who spent the entire evening shouting across the table at each other and making it impossible for my wife and I to hold a conversation. Poor acoustics only served to increase the noise level and made the cacophony even worse. We were also disappointed with some of the food - we like to choose what we eat, not rely on what the chef thinks is right for his customers, and some of the dishes, like the raw octopus, were not what we would have chosen for ourselves. An interesting dining experience, but we won't be hurrying back.
Once again an evening of delish beautifully prepared and presented food. A great place to be while the storm raged outside!
Wife, teenage kids and I had a wonderfully fresh and delicious 6 course meal. Beautifully presented dishes. Would highly recommend.
The attention to detail was second to none and the flavours were absolutely sensational. We were blown away!
Intesting unusual and enjoyable food. Had the 4 course - 6 probably better. Sake list seems of good quality
Loved the food and the ambience. Good value for money.
So delicious even my fussy 14-year old enjoyed it :)
Really lovely dinner and now our favourite restaurant in Noosa!
Intimate , yet with a great vibe .Beautiful Japanese menu, sesame tofu was incredible
Always outstanding! Highly recommended. A first class, creative Japanese eating (and drinking) experience.
A wonderful experience, with authentic and interesting Japanese food
Thanks Giles and team for an extraordinary experience. We took our kids this time and it was also great to see them trying and enjoying new things.
Exquisite food and wonder staff. Can’t wait to go back !
Great food but couldn’t help feeling like they’re trying too hard. Weird, sterile environment with very pretentious food descriptions by the staff accompanying each dish. It’s located down an arcade so gave it a bit of a shopping centre restaurant vibe. Very small dishes, very large price tag. Overall we enjoyed the meal but wouldn’t return. There’s nicer places with a nicer vibe.
Great experience, very knowledgeable staff. Super impressive. Loved it
Enjoyed a wonderful evening at Sumi. Had the 6 course menu, and each course was interesting and tasty! Sake pairings were the best part... discovered some new flavours. The service was wonderful, thank you! Atmosphere nice. Would go again 😊
Fixed menu and not much of it - all tasted the same. Service was overbearing and pretentious, and the cost was astronomical for what you got - we spent $350 and went home hungry. Disappointing.
Beautiful food, brilliant service. Watching the food preparation is like watching fabulous theatre. A magnificent event overall!
The whole experience was fantastic.
Food and service could not be faulted
Looking forward to dining again.
Service and food were great - relatively expensive but more than worth the money.
I always rate a restaurant but I don’t normally write reviews as we eat out a lot and can be time consuming. However , I am going to make an exception this time. I am a passionate cook and like to dine out and enjoy something I wouldn’t normally do myself at home, so weekly we frequent Sumi open kitchen Why? Because Giles is passionate, creative, innovative, articulate and a perfectionist
His combinations, flavours and meticulous detail are sublime. Wednesday evening of this week part of his set menu was fresh local bamboo stuffed with scallop and whitefish moose tempura style sitting in dashi broth ! I can’t wait to go again next week....very content clients Love that he is ours here in Noosa!
The steak was divided it was basted with this sauce and charred on the outside and tender on the inside!!! Every dish was really good. Pleasant surprise!!!
Sumi Open kitchen is a small intimate quiet place to enjoy beautiful seasonal Japanese cuisine. The menu changes depending on what are the best available ingredients. Choosing either the 4 course or 6 course menu you will experience a range of many different dishes beautifully cooked and presented. A lovely place for a couple or a group of 4 to enjoy conversations over a delicious meal.
A lovely dining experience. Great friendly staff with interaction and a few laughs. Food was amazing and the restaurant was nicely decorated and laid out. Thank you for such a wonderful night.
Nice food, little pricey for what you receive. It was very flavoursome and sake.was.amazing. seating very close together so not a romantic dinner spot.
Beautiful food, excellent, attentive service. The décor was a bit underwhelming, but restaurant itself was cozy, and quiet. A nice place to enjoy some delicious Japanese food. Highly recommend.
Amazing food and flavour! Attentive service and we will be back!!
On the whole the food was outstanding but let down slightly by both the beef and the kingfish being a little dry.
found the food tasteless. seemed most pre prepared and lacked flavour
Wonderful food. We had the 7 course menu which was fab. Only thing main slightly overcooked. We had a special bottle of wine with us which complemented the food
Sumi Open Kitchen was lovely. The chef-chosen menu is varied, interesting and delicious, and the staff are incredibly friendly and attentive. If you’re looking for inspired Japanese cuisine it’s definitely worth a visit. It’s pricey but the food is quality, and as the courses go on you definitely won’t be left hungry.
Sumi Open Kitchen is lovely - the staff are so friendly and you can tell they love working there. The chef was passionate and had a chat with us which felt very personable and nice. My husband and I aren’t used to eating sashimi, that’s not to say it wasn’t nice. I’m sure others would enjoy it as well. It’s quite the culinary experience. The presentation and sourcing of the seafood was very well thought out. The main was INCREDIBLE and so was the desert. The wine recommendation was also on point. My husband and I had Japanese white wine and the king fish for main. Thanks chef + staff.
Amazing dining. Incredible flavours and divine sensations. Exceptional service. Can’t wait to go back.
Delicious thoughtfully curated food attentive service
They did not know the dietary requirement I left on a note when I made a booking.
Delicious food presented exquisitely & explained well by staff
Wines complemented food with choices from local interstate & overseas
Very extensive sake list
Excellent food with knowledgeable staff. Great to have the sake matching the food, was a real education.
For a special evening out you can't go past this chef-designed menu with sake pairing. Magic flavours of Japan, impeccably presented with unmatchable hospitality.
