Sushi Tomo on El Camino Way provides good sushi at a good price. We eat here 2-3 times a month. The sushi chefs are personable and will tell you what is best that day. The boats around the sushi bar are a fun touch- loved by kids and kids at heart.

Arguably the best value in town for a nice Asian meal… Of course, here you’ll get a typical Asian cuisine a la carte menu, including tempura, sushi rolls, sashimi, miso soups, etc., etc… but if you want to try a satisfying and delicious meal for one very reasonable price, go for the “lunch box” (or “dinner box”, if you visit...

The fish was not fresh and had a bad after taste. Even the loads of mayo and sauce in spicy tuna roll could not hide the bad quality

Good food: better than average teriyaki. The lunch special is a good deal, and they have quite a variety of types of sushi. Service is quick and friendly.

I don't want people to think this is Sushi. What a shame...... I believe this restraunt is runned by Korean people because they were all speaking Korean. Have they ever had real sushi???? All the fish tasted same. I know why .........because it was all frozen and inappropriately defreeze. I was so disappointed for fish and miso soup too. I... More

It's ok for sushi and basic Japanese fare. It's not fancy or really unique, but it will do in a pinch

I had bad sushi here about a year ago. I was sick for days and still cannot even go back into the place. I used to eat here all the time and had decent food but since I got sick from eating here, I will never go back.

I've been a customer at Sushi Tomo for at least four years. We often just take out, mostly because we prefer to enjoy our sushi at home watching movie. I can't therefore tell much about waiters at restaurant. A few times we've stayed for dinner or lunch both at the bar and at the table, we have always been satisfied... More

What a miserable dump. After waiting for 10 min. no one came by our table to even give us menus or water. I asked twice for the host and the server to please take our order, and both went to customers who arrived after us. Unbelievably terrible customer service. No wonder this place has so many 1-star reviews on Yelp.... More

I love sushi and have tried sushi in every location imaginable and, although I've had some interesting combinations at other sushi restaurants, I've never had worse product than what I was served here. I tried two different rolls and both had tough/hard rice and the shrimp inside was also tough. I was there for an early dinner (6 PM) and... More
