    We’ve had many great meals at SUMI but this trumps them all providing a showcase for the chef’s skills and imagination. Now a set course of 7 stages including some of the finest tuna nigiri we’ve had anywhere ( that includes Jiro in Tokyo ). Just delicious and all in lovely corner of Noosa Junction away from the glitter strip.

    Whenever in the Noosa, we always make sure to revisit Sumi Open Kitchen. Never disappointed. With our visit last week, we were certainly not let down. The food, presentation, flavours and matching sake was exquisite.

    Had a superb dining experience at Sumi. We were a table of three so we didn't have the chance to seat at the chef's table which was very unfortunate. The whole menu was very interesting and full of flavours! The only thing I regret was that I felt the waiter didn't have much time for us. I had the chance to chat quickly with the chef before going and his friendliness, his knowledge and the time he spent answering my questions showed how generous he is, so thank you chef! Otherwise i definitely recommend and would go again when they change the menu!

The food was spectacular and we loved watching it all be made and plated. The staff and chef were absolutely fantastic and we loved chatting to them after dinner. I have eaten a lot of Japanese in my life and this was definitely top 5!!

    Exquisite dining in this tiny little gem. The meal featured course after course of delicious combinations prepared by the fastidious chef. We sat at the kitchen bench and enjoyed watching the meal preparations - would definitely recommend it. In a region spoiled for choice of ‘good’ dining options, this is a superior choice. A real gem.

    Fantastically balanced and sequenced high standard meal, prepared, cooked and served with care and attention. Sumi Open Kitchen is a hidden gem in Noosa and we believe, best in town. The quality of each dish is very high and the flavour combinations using quality ingredients is obvious. The hand made black sesame icecream is the best icecream I've eaten anywhere! If you haven't eaten here yet, make a booking and be delighted.
