The food looked beautifully prepared and tasted as good as it looked
We included the matching sake which went well with each dish and fun to try
The service was excellent also
A high quality restaurant tucked away in a Noosa arcade

To be honest the food was nowhere near the rating level of the restaurant. We expected to be blown away and we weren't.

Sumi is an amazing experience. A degustation style menu that cannot be found in any other local Japanese restaurant. The charcoal grill adds another dimension. I can't wait to go back again!

Beautiful delicious gourmet Japanese dining. This is our special local restaurant. The menu is a choice of 4 or 6 courses with the dishes always changing depending on the best seasonal ingredients. It is slightly more expensive than some other places but we would prefer to eat at Sumi once than other places twice.
Bookings recommended. Parking available at the rear in carpark behind the Noosa cinema. Steps down from carpark to Sumi front door.
Highly recommended.

Four of us had the six course degustation menu. All dishes were superb and we all loved the experience of trying different dishes presented to perfection. Food, drinks and service outstanding. A hidden gem in Noosa junction not to be missed.

Think of a little Japanese restaurant where the owner has gone out to deliver the highest quality in food and dining experience. You can trust all that they have to offer will be delicious and of the highest quality and standards. Come here for a happy, enjoyable and relaxing dining experience which will make you glad you decided to enjoy good food. Their attention to detail is appreciated.

We loved this restaurant, one of the best Japanese restaurants we have been to. Food was excellent quality and I'd recommend the Sake paring :) it matched perfectly with our food. Great service and friendly staff.

Absolute perfection. Chef Giles takes pride in every morsel of food and it shows. The flavours are intense, portions are just right. Matching sakes are recommended.

Very nice little Japanese restaurant with superb food. They offered a "trust the chef menu", and I went for the six courses one. In general, all six courses were excellent, with a couple of them just outstanding (and different from usual dishes).

他にも素敵な日本食屋さんはありますが、今まで行ったお店の中で初めて自分にしっくりくるお店に出会いました。(値段、テイスト含む)
ほんの少しウエスタン文化が入った、でも完璧な日本食をこのままお願いします。

Those who are prepared to let the experts do what they do best will love the experience at Sumi - a finely tuned unique Japanese menu, presented with flare and superb when paired with matched Sakes. A real treat!

We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary here. We found it to be an authentic Japanese dining experience. The staff were friendly and attentive. Great ambience in the restaurant and BYO wine option was a bonus as we had a couple of special bottles put away for the occasion. We will definitely be back.

Entrees were quite underwhelming, the main mackarel was really dry, have had better for fraction of the price. Dessert ice cream was excellent but unfortunately other servings did not live up to that.

We had a wonderful evening, the food was exquisite! We chose the six course tasting menu. Highlights were the tempura prawn and the oyster blade and the duck leek Yuba dishes. The matching sakes were perfect. The guys were really hospitable, friendly and we will be back again soon.

As soon as I walked in the restaurant, I felt like I am in Japan. The place was filled with delicious aroma of dashi (soup stock)! All the dishes were nicely presented and had so much flavour&texture. I highly recommend Sumi if you are looking for quality Japanese dinner.

Beautiful 6 course Degustation! The only let down was the dessert - sponge cake with red bean. Its just on as good as the other meals. Otherwise, definitely would return!

Great food looking forwards to going back. Had the 6 courses with matching sake. The kids had 4 courses without the matching sake! If ordering again I would swap the mains with 1 or 2 of the earlier dishes. The mains were very good but the first 4 courses were stunning and we would have been happy to double up on any of them. We all loved the desert simple yet very complex flavours.
