Sumi is another hidden gem in the small town of Tofo, Inhambane (approx 7 hrs from Maputo). We try and go there at least twice when we visit. At the moment - they are openo Friday, Saturday and Sunday only - so ideally make a reservation as there as less tables (August 2020). So many fabulous things on the menu to try! Food is all prepared freshly as you wait - and you can really taste the freshness and feel the love that has gone into creating this haven!

Ooooh my god! There is just one bad review about this place which is absolutely ridiculously non sense. Maybe every once in a while when people start a business you find people unprepared but please just think of where you are and appreciate what you can get! I think Sumi restaurants was the best restaurant in all Tofo or Mozambique. The effort of put in your mouth that delicious food it has to be considerate. Anybody that leaves a bad review doesn’t understand anythings in hospitality, and maybe is just a spoiled brats.

Sumi is a great restaurant addition to Tofo - it is stylish yet relaxed and has an extensive Japanese style menu including various sushi options, 'tapas' style small plates, larger dishes and ramen - all beautifully presented and tasting amazing. The crab salad and the asian style sticky ribs were a highlight. Also a nice choice of blues music, we also enjoyed live music on one evening and received great and friendly service from the staff. It's a popular place in a small town so I would recommend booking a table (even if just earlier on the same day) rather than just turning up to avoid disappointment.

Place seems to be full all the time and tabel reservation is to recommend. Spicy tuna rolls were excellent, tempura with vegs and scallops as well, but missed more variation to dip sauces, got mostly just soya sauce to all portions. Visited twice, both times there was extra portions on the bill by mistake.

What a fantastic culinary experience! Thanks to a recommendation we had dinner at this lovely Japanese restaurant. The atmosphere was inviting, intimate, calm and trendy. The waiters were very friendly and with a good knowledge of the menu. The food... heavenly! We are vegans and had: vegetarian spring rolls ( the best I ever tasted in 4 continents!) a dish of dumplings filled with spinach and tofu ( super delicious and cooked to perfection) and another dish consisting of stir fried noodles, mix vegetables and tofu ( delicious). If you go to Tofo, you MUST eat at Sumi. 😉 We will come back very very soon!

We booked a table one Saturday for the next Monday. We did it personally at the restaurant with the staff there. I gave my number in the reservation. When we arrived to our dinner, the restaurant was closed and the only explanation was given by the guard, and it was the following: "today is the birthday of one of the owners and they have decided not to open". Totally regrettable.

This restaurant serves authentic Japanese food and it a real relief, after the limited menu of Mozambican or South African restaurants. If you do not like raw fish, there are plenty of other dishes at the menu. I can highly recommend this place. It is advisable to make a reservation, because there are only a few tables.

Stunning little spot, with incredible menu and food and a wonderful ambience. If you looking for something different to the local cuisine and a little bit more upmarket this is the spot. Really worth every penny.

We visited this lovely restaurant on recommendation and went on a night they had live music. We thoroughly enjoyed it, the vibes and music was great. The food is absolutely phenomenal, it was so great we went twice in the same week! This is the reason the restaurant is always full so make sure to go early. We had their crispy prawn spring rolls, Kari Kari sushi (crispy fried crab sushi), spicy Asian buffalo wings, chicken teriyaki and teriyaki beef fillet of which everything was to die for! Even their creme brulee was the best one we've ever had. Definitely recommend you give them a try, well worth it!

My friend and I had a fantastic meal at Sumi. I really enjoyed the sushi rolls that I had, and my friend was pleased that there were several great vegan options for him. It's rare that we find a restaurant that we're both excited to come back to. The ambiance is great, and the owners are super friendly, too.

We have been in this restaurant twice and first time was very good. We took some sushi and some other seafood, staff was nice and we sit on the roof terace. Second time we have totaly oposite experiance - food was not so good, waiter was strange and it seem he did not understand us, all took way too long. So the problem is not constant experiance…

Worst service ever, I went there expecting good vibes good food and great drinks as advertised however to my disappointment everything became a nightmare. the waiters are disrespectful they don’t care about the clients, management is passive and also missed in action. We weren’t able even to be able to engage a waiter in order to be get a table. My honest recommendation is for management and staff to acknowledge that they exist because we (clients) exist.

We loved the food. Great flavors. Perfect cooking and quick delivery. Worth coming back. We enjoyed miso soup, sushi and yakisoba. The dark chocolate tart was so good, I ordered a another immediately.

The food here was amazing. We were a pretty large group and the staff were so accommodating to us even though we arrived so close to the kitchen closing. The food was so good- the cooked food and the sushi. Their drinks were so good as well.

This is the best place to eat in Tofo. Food was great, service good, and prices very reasonable. Excellent sushi, but they also do other (japanese) food too. It is very popular, so booking is strongly recommended
