Delicious 4-course menu served with matching sake. 1st and 4th dishes were the standout, flavoured to perfection. With the matching sake option, menu seemed a little expensive compared to similar dining experiences, but we appreciated the time taken to explain each sake and meal.

Excellent food, we were a group of 4, 3 had the four course set menu, one with the six course set menu. The duck tksune and chawan mushi were superb, beautiful subtle flavours, multiple levels of flavour. Some of us didn't like the black sesame mochi (ice cream) but it was still well prepared. Didn't go with the sake matching option.

Found this place on the Internet as it had good reviews. Will be recommending it to my clients and friends visiting Noosa. The food was outstanding as was the service. So much attention to detail and the staff were very friendly without being over the top.
We had the 4 course degustation with Sake pairing. Next time I would go for the 6 course! The sake was also excellent. Highly recommend this place.

We loved dining here.
The staff are knowledgeable, helpful, and efficient.
The chefs attention to detail is incredible.
Food was delicious, every bite.
We had the 4 course menu and very very good wine and sake.
One very minor comment is we would have liked a small bowl of salad or veg as part of the meal but otherwise faultless.
Thank you Sumi Open Kitchen Team.

The food was very good especially the Angus sirloin and black sesame mochi.
My only criticism would be the only option of 2 set menus. We had a fussy eater including myself( half fussy) so some of the unusual delicacies were not consumed by us.
I would definitely return just for the dessert!

Our go to restaurant whenever we visit Noosa. My wife and love Japanese food and we have never been disappointed at Sumi. The fixed menu has introduced new flavours which coupled with the selection of sake has completed an excellent dinning experience.

Well worth having dinner here if you are in Noosa. Beautiful Japanese food.

You can choose to do one 4 course and one 6 course between 2 of you so you don’t get too full and then you can try everything!

Even though they explain each course it would be good if they left the menu so you could look at it as you eat. I think this helps you to taste all the individual flavours. It is also great to sit and watch them prepare your food!

A small gem tucked into Noosa Junction. The fixed menu offers multiple Japanese tastes through appetiser & sashimi plates, a choice of meat or fish main & a tasty sweet. Beautiful presentation & knowledgeable & friendly staff.

Great little find for Noosa Junction locals and visitors alike, tucked up the rear of an arcade. Giles and the team have been meticulously pumping out creative little takes on trad Jap dishes, using local prawns, line caught white fleshed fish, red meats and veggies for a few years now. Some dishes on the night we visited could do with a touch more ‘wafu’ depth, and at $90, the six-course set menu could benefit from perhaps one more dish could help make it sing and make it better value for money, such as a tempura of prawn and sweet potato slice (?). One of the side dishes to the beef main, niku jaga style simmered potato and onion in a buttery broth, was pretty ordinary, and a nice fresh miso shiru would have been a better substitute. The chawan mushi topping sauce was a bit spicy and overpowering. The beef dish, although expertly grilled, could have benefited from an option of a dipping sauce of ponzu or goma miso. The sake list is very good and the sake we ordered from Hiroshima, was a lovely match for the food. Overall, a unique experience for SE Qld, with exceptional attention to fresh local ingredients. First time visitors will be impressed.

Great little restaurant- food was delicious morsels of flavor. We had the four course set menu which was more than enough food. We ate at several of the very high end restaurants in Hastings Street which were great but I would rather go back to sumi any day.

We, myself and my partner, noticed poor level of customer service from one of the floor staffs. She had no smile during service, not friendly and she rushed us to settle the bill as soon us we finished the meal. I think it’s okay in a regular restaurant, but not in fine-dining. Hope she will be trained well and we would love to see you again!! We really loved the food which they impressively replicated the Japanese cuisine throughout the entire course.
