Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The restaurant seating was very nice but the menu was not very extensive. We tried a few of their rice bowls and their shared dishes and the food was all fine. The serving sizes were all on the smaller side but overall, it was a...pleasant experience.More

Absolutely fabulous food and service and an amazing selection all reasonably priced. This is my 2nd time here and both visits have been great - the only reason I gave 4 stars is it can be quite noisy if there are big groups in the...private spaces which may be reduced if some sound proofing panels could be fitted to the ceiling perhaps but other than that a great experience.More

Really enjoyed dinner here tonight. The restaurant has a great ambience and menu. The wait staff were really friendly, and when a table opened up further inside the restaurant they offered it, and then moved us. They were also friendly and attentive. Food was great,...and we polished everything off. It was tasty and fresh. We wouldn’t hesitate to return here again, or recommend it.More

Chose Suminato to celebrate my birthday on friends recommendation when we visited Hobart. Decore was very attractive with lots of pate timber. We had a booth which added to the intimacy. Service was friendly and efficient. Having visited Japan many times we had high expectations...of the food and they were met. We treated the experience like an izakaya and chose lots of dishes. The oyster special with 6 flavours. was a great way to start. Really enjoyed the sashimi, the beef tataki and the grilled scallop. Pork gyoza were tasty and perfectly cooked, as was the Nasu and Tofu agedashi. Washed it down with nicely chilled Asahi and a bottle of Chardonnay. Serves were generous and timing of delivery excellent.More

Unfortunately our night was let down with very slow service, luke warm food and not a cheap night out. The cocktail didnt taste like it had any alcohol in it and were very small. We saw lots of takeaway orders been done way before restaurant...meals. orders came out slow and only luke warm in some cases. quite disappointing.More
