Simply Delightful Sushi

The raw fish will find your lips and send you into blissful convulsions. The help will eye you as intruders....but hey no place is perfect. This great downtown eatery will set you back a few bones, but it is worth the experience, because the food is just so good. I have gone here with both family... read more

Went for a date here with my wife and it was the best! Our server, Nick, was helpful and really made our night a great one. He gave the best suggestions. When you go there ask for Nick!

We waited 45 minutes for sushi!! While this may reflect freshness we learned through additional inquiries that the priority is given to take aways. Better to close the restaurant rather than insulting it's customers

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. 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.
