I've eaten sushi at all the LA hot spots - Teru Sushi, Katsu-ya (before it was famous, even), Mori Sushi (my absolute favorite in the world) - but this little hole in the wall does the trick when you're tired, don't feel like spending a lot, and just want a decent meal.

Ok let me begin by saying the service at this restaurant makes you want to really lose your mind.

Went to Sumo Sushi on Sunday night 1/27/13. Expected much more after reading reviews here and on Yelp. I don't get the positive reviews either for quality of food or ambiance.

The entire staff was friendly, remembered me from my previous visit a month earlier, helpful with the explaining new menu items. Some of the best sushi I have ever had. In addition to sushi, be sure to try the oysters.

One of the Valley's best Sushi places. A hole in the wall kinda place, but the best Sashimi for the price, thick cuts & melts-in-your-mouth. Great portions & even better price. Definitely better than the other 'big' named Sushi Places.
