Other reviewers seem to love this place, but in my opinion it is overpriced and the sushi, in particular, is not that good. Last time I had sushi here it was mediocre and fairly pricey. However, some of their Chinese food items are quite good, including the duck dishes and the curry items. Their decor needs some sprucing up--it looks... More

I found this restaurant by reference and recommendation from locals while on a business trip. Good value for price/dinner, I visited the place in the company of 5 other colleagues. Warm attention, calmed and friendly atmosphere.

My wife and I used to come here all the time for the sushi. Then you have kids and are out of the loop for a couple years. Then we moved. So Saturday night was probably the first time we have been back to Sumo in 5 years or so. Why had it been so long? The sashimi was fantastic,... More

Special rolls are very good. we have been coming here for years. They also have Chinese food. Can't say we come here for that but we always get one dish for dinner along with the sushi/sashimi. Staff will get to know you if you come often enough. It's BYOB which is always a plus.

This is favorite place for lunch with co-workers or dinner with family. I highly recommend it! The bento boxes are a great value.

Where else can you get a generous entree, rice, full California roll, dumpling soup and a decent mixed-greens salad for $9!! This is a Japanese restaurant that does imaginative, seasonal Japanese food well but tacks on Chinese dishes as an afterthought. The General Tsao's chicken I ordered as a lunch special was actually a very basic sweet-and-sour chicken that bore... More

i had lunch with a co-worker and we were both very impressed with the classic, traditional sushi house decor. this little nugget is tucked back into the back of a cozy little plaza with parking in the back. The food was excellent. I had a bento box with a spicy tuna roll upgrade. there are a couple things i benchmark... More
