Such good food! Great variety, and amazing espresso martinis which were lethal! Staff friendly and owner eager to please. Really modern setting but in keeping with Tofo

We stumbled across Sumi just before Christmas 2017 - soon after it had opened - and were blown away by the brilliance of their food. We’ve been back twice since - a lovely place to hang out and eat fabulous food. Can’t recommend highly enough!

A beautiful space in Tofu! Well thought out area walled off from the vendors! Old house thoughtfully updated with Japanese style floating rooves at different levels. Tastefully decorated with Bonsai. Food was outstanding from the lobster sushi to the noodle dish, "pot stickers" and Japanese...More

The sushi here was super yummy. We preferred it over the food we ordered from the hot food menu (ribs and breaded pork), which we thought was mediocre. The ambiance is lovely and the service is good. Definitely worth checking out while you’re in Tofo!

Have been to Tofo many times and eaten through most establishments more than once. On the last visit recently we really wanted to try Sumi which, according to hearsay, was the restaurant en vogue now. Once finding it, we were not disappointed. I do, however,...More

This is the absolute BEST restaurant in the area. We had two great meals there and would highly recommend the food, service and ambiance. Everything we ate was really good. The menu changes based on fresh, available ingredients sourced locally and they also offer vegetarian...More

A unique and intimate space serving authentic Japanese cuisine including sushi. A wine cellar with a large selection of wines for all occasions, fresh cocktails made from seasonal fruits. Daily chalkboard menu depending on local available produce. Also a great vibe when hosting live musicians. Lush garden and wooden furniture setting, comfortable sofas invite you to unwind and relax.
