Great unique rolls!

My family and I love the unique sushi rolls, excellent tempura, and don't miss the lobster bisque. Sumisu is great for lunch and dinner. The bento box lunch is a treat as well. Nothing better than good beer and sushi. Pocatello lacked a good Japanese restaurant for years until Sumisu arrived... read more

Nothing better than good beer and sushi. Pocatello lacked a good Japanese restaurant for years until Sumisu arrived. It has been a hit since opening.

The nigiri was good that we ordered for the table but if you ask me the appetizers were the star of the show. I had one of the best crab randgoons and dumplings I've ever had first rate I really enjoyed.

As someone who lives in the San Francisco area I'm blessed with exposure to some very fine authentic Japanese places. Sumisu presents an 'Americanized' view of Japanese food including a wide selection of sushi rolls. The decor is very nice and they have a variety of beer and sake choices.

Sumisu is really yummy! We love going there! The restaurant has a lofty feel, some walls are brick and it has a nice, warm vibe. The presentation of the food is beautiful. Some of the special rolls come lit on fire. They also have a delicious seafood bisque. The pic is of their bento box. The tempura veggies are also... More

The hot entrées (bento box) were good and good value. Came with grilled veggies and that was good too. Seafood chowder was creamy and smooth. The sushi was not so good. . Rice was too hard and fish was bland. I recommend the bento boxes.

After a week in the culinary desert that is south Utah, we were desperate for really fresh food and Sumiso delivered. The Bento box was great value at about $10 and the tempura vegetables were lightly battered and crispy, while the pork was tasty but a little dry. The seafood bisque was thick and spicy, while the Crab Rangoon was... More

I was impressed Pocatello had a decent sushi bar..! I tried Family Sushi and it was disgusting but this place was leaps and bounds better, service way from the sushi bar was slow and somewhat inattentive but the Chefs were friendly and very attentive.. I would recommend being seated at the bar.. good fresh Fish and talented Chefs.. Good bang... More

Love the dragon role, the ahi tuna/cucumber salad and the bento boxes. The food here is awesome and is you like sushi/Asian food you will eat it all. The prices are reasonable and the variety on the menu is good and fresh. They could work on the odd smell the restaurant has.
