Recession hits Sumi Restaurant

Namibia’s prolonged financial crisis has eaten away at yet another popular hangout spot Sumi which is now up for sale as its owners who relocated cannot afford to run it from a distance.

Sumi the Japanese restaurant which is situated opposite the City of Windhoek, walking distance from the Hilton and Avani hotels in the heart of the capital, has been put up for sale this week.

Martin Bosman, one of the owners told unwrap.online that it became extremely difficult running such a fast pace restaurant from far.

“We relocated out of Windhoek and the last ten months was just really difficult. In the process, we were losing a lot of money. We have also been hit hard by the recession,” he said.

Many Namibians will be sad to see Sumi closed as it has become a darling of hangouts for socialites in the last three years of its existence. It has hosted a number of corporate launches and events as well as just catered for the thirsty young professionals. These events included the uber-popular Windhoek Fashion Week, a number of meets and greets for international entertainers.
