The Staff are attentive, friendly and always smiling. We enjoyed the King Fish and marinated eggplant both were delicious with a great selection of wines as well. The desserts are particularly good and well presented. A beautiful atmosphere I hope to return again soon.

We waited an hour for our food, saw other people who had arrived after us receiving their food. After we asked, 3 of us received a dish but not the fourth person. She was still waiting when the other three received a second dish. At...that stage, manager came and explained that our meals had been wrongly delivered to another table. Our first lot of meals (tempura) were cold. Poor service and food disappointing!More

The food was beautiful, wonderfully presented and a delight to eat. The service was very good. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was due to the restaurant being exceptionally cold 🥶 which was extremely uncomfortable for all members of our group. We...did inform our wait staff who did raise the temperature to where it was bearable. Unfortunately the temperature was soon decreased to the very uncomfortable cold 🥶 temperature again.More

Late lunch. Terrific menu, wine list and service We will be back!! Located on the corner of a main thoroughfare you might want to check about parking if you are driving. But this place is on a main bus route (Sandy Bay). We tried many...elements of the set menu. Big ✅ all around.More

We made a last minute booking at Suminato and were lucky to score a table. Whilst we were there there were 2 lots of walk ins that could not be accommodated. Staff were friendly and although the wine list was limited there were enough choices...to accompany the meal. Great sashimi and tempura but found the miso Lamb and the duck/eggplant a little too sweet due to The amount of miso applied... but this is my taste only and should not distract anyone from ordering the dishes...the room at the front where we were site was a bit loud but still comfortable.....overall I would go back again.More

Decor beautiful. Service very friendly although a little slow. Gyoza absolutely delicious but the Sukiyaki a real disappointment. Potato wedges good too.
