The project

Tibbatts Abel were appointed to create Sumi in 2020. The little sister to sushi master Endo Kazutoshi’s eponymous Michelin-starred White City restaurant. We were briefed to design a refined, cosy, and elegant Japanese restaurant in the heart of Notting Hill, London. Since then, we have collaborated again with the Sumi team to extend the restaurant which completed in 2022.

The interior

A restaurant including bar, dining and open chef table provides a different experience for each guest. The interior features ambient lighting with natural materials, cane panels and reeded oak timber. A design which has created a harmonious space to enjoy the delights of Japanese cuisine.
