The food is good quality, and the service is typically friendly and efficient. The restaurant offers lunch and dinner, and it can be very crowded both meals, so reservations are recommended. The sushi is fresh and well prepared, and for those who don't enjoy sushi, the teriyaki bowls are very good as well.

I definetely enjoy the place. Very good and large choice of rolls. Still, you shouldn't miss the tuna tataki. I normally like tuna plane, but this dressing was excellent as well as the vegetable served along with it

I didn't go for the sushi so that was a mistake, had a chicken dish and the chicken was so chewy I could barely eat it. The female staff ignored me and when I complained the could have cared less. Been once, won't go back.

Went here for lunch, appreciated the quick turn around getting in and out in a reasonable amount of time. Sushi choices are extensive.

My daughter graduated college and said "I want to eat at Happy Sumo!" Since her mother, ahem, taught her about sushi, I knew it had to be delicious and I was not let down. It was fabulous sushi. I can't wait to go back!

I recently went here on my trip to Utah. It was so good. I got the Chicken Teriyaki and the others in my party go the Sushi. Everyone loved their dinner. I would highly recommend it and plan on going again on my next visit.

Was passing through from Moab to Idaho. Dispite the lukewarm reviews of the SLC location, you should really try this one! I started with the Sumo-dynomite app. Simply delicious. Fried shrimp coated in a sweet/spicy sauce on crab and rice noodles. The smoked salmon nigiri was so fresh and tasty my husband had 4 orders! We sat at the bar,... More

I called in early for a reservation and the girl on the phone told me their reservations were all taken for tonight. On a Wednesday, I ask? She said they would be very busy. We decided to take our chances anyway. When we arrived, we were the only ones in the lobby and were told there was a 40 minute... More

My family really enjoyed our dining experience here! The sushi was delicious and fresh with a colorful, exciting presentation; ambience was truly artful; and on top of that, outstanding, wonderfully friendly service truly made our dining experience fun and special! I HIGHLY recommend The Happy Sumo!

Happy sumo has pretty good Sushi and flavours. The atmosphere is very good as well, dark and intimate. However, their prices are higher than the other sushi places in town and it is a lot busier. Many people will say that it is better quality, but being from the Northwest and frequent fish consumer, I really can't tell any difference.... More
