Love it!

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.

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

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!

I recently bought a most expensive mixed sushi platter(mega)25pcs for the take away. When I saw it, I couldn't believe it. I thought it was a mistake. I thought 25 pieces for £29.80 was enough for 4 people. No! I was so wrong, they are only enough for 1 person. And the food quality wasn't nice at all, either. I... More

If you go anywhere for sushi besides this place, you're wrong. The food quality is perfect, the only place I've had better sushi was in Korea.

I've drove 5 hours and Sumo Sushi was worth it! For many years I have eaten sushi all over Europe, restaurants and store bought, none can compare to the quality of sushi here at Sumo Sushi.

Like most sushi places outside of Japan, it can be quite expensive. Overall, a family of four (2 adults and 2 young kids), it was over £50. With that said, our family tends to eat a lot of sushi, so we got our fill for sure. All of the varieties we had all tasted very fresh and was awesome. They... More
