Restaurant opened in November 2011, and has been busy all days of the week since it opened. The fish is fresh, the owners are Japenese and very excited to offer good sushi to the local population. The sushi has always been fresh, service can sometimes be slow, but patrons don't seem to mind waiting since the food is so good and the atmosphere is fun and friendly. Please consider adding this fun Sushi/Japanese restaurant to your list of places to eat in Mildenhall.

Give me SUMO please

I was a sushi virgin. I went it for a take-away and asked the hostess to recommend something for such as me. She, quite rightly, declined to make a recommendation saying that tastes vary too much. She did however go over the menu with me explaining various things. I chose something and it was a... read more

Who could imagine sushi this good in Mildenhall?! Sumo serves up fantastic sushi comparable to just about anything I've tried, even having spent two years living in Asia. The only reason this isn't a five star review is due to the dinning area in the restaurant. It's quite a cramped atmosphere, but their food has always been worth it.

Went to lunch with my wife and order a few things. I lived in Japan for several years before moving to the UK. If you want a sushi experience this is not the place. If this restaurant was in Japan they would be out of business, because this is nothing compared to any sushi restaurant that've ever been to while... More

Normally its decent, however expensive sushi is in England. I had take out and it was probably the oldest fish in stock. The fat had separated the sections, it was about 3 cm apart. Sad.....

The food was ok for Sushi in the middle of England I mean what can you really expect. The problem I had was that the sushi chef kept eating while he was making our food and wiped his hand on his nose at least twice. I know this probably happens at a lot of restaurants but you would think they... More

Sumo Sushi is a regular haunt and it never ever stops being brilliant! It's a very small unassuming, unpretentious restaurant in the middle of Mildenhall with friendly owners and staff. The Fish is the best quality I have ever eaten in the UK... the Salmon in particular! Being so close to Mildenhall USAF base it has a lot of regular... More

This was my first time in a proper sushi bar and loved it. They explained how to order the food and were very helpful when asked questions. Our order arrived quickly and was freshly made. Will be recommending to friends and will be going back again soon.

Honestly, my husband and I were a little skeptical of how the food would be given the location but we were pleasantly surprised at our first experience at sumo! The sushi was delicious, service was fast and super friendly! Having lived in Hawaii we are a little critical of sushi places after being spoiled on that island but we will... More

Very friendly and welcoming place to eat. Great for kids. The sushi is fresh and quite a good range. As far as sushi goes, it's better than most UK sushi.... much better than the supermarket, pre-packed! I have eaten a fair bit of sushi from many places around the world and Sumo Sushi compares well to most. Yummy!
