On the recommendation of a highly rated local chef I took my assistant to dinner at Sumela on October 21, 2013.
The place is absolutely nothing to look at. The waitstaff that we encountered was very nice but clearly not very professional.
My assistant ordered a dinner salad with chicken. I ordered hummus and on the recommendation of the local Chef ordered the beef tenderloin shish kebab dinner. The hummus was good. My assistant salad was "nothing to write home about". My dinner which was supposedly beef tenderloin was tuff, massively over seasoned and over cooked. The accompanying items that came with the dinner, rice, vegetables and a bean dish were all either tasteless or disgusting.
The major draw to High Point North Carolina is the home furnishings market. During market One can literally eat from morning tonight. I'm not rare occasion when I decide to go to a restaurant I would hope that they would be at the top of their game given the massive number of visitors that are in the city.
Though the cost of this meal would have been considered reasonable relative to High Point market cost I would not return. If you can't put out good food when markets going on I can't imagine how you can stay in business in this otherwise sleepy little town.
Definitely drive by this one.
