“good sushi, giant place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We like to go once in a while to treat ourselves with delicious sushi. The place is huge and can and will get noisy. But the food is really fresh and of high quality.

“Suprinsingly decent sushi for an all you can eat place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Sumo is a typical all you can eat sushi place, so dont expect top-notch japanese sushi here. However from a price-value perspective it is a supringsingly decent place. The sushi rice is well prepared and the quality of the fish is reasonably good.

The dishes available are a bit standard but there are plenty of options to suit various appetites. The selection of drinks however is a bit limited (both wines as sake). Quality of service is a bit below standard (even Dutch standards); they are not really lenient to serve groups and the waitresses have very limited knowledge of whats on the menu and are not 100% accurate in taking the orders.

Overall good if you are looking for an easy dinner and good value for your money. Not the best place for a romantic dinner or high quality sushi.

“Pleasant Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We have been to this resto a few times but mostly during lunch. I think the experience in this restaurant vastly improves on the time of day that you dine in. We ate here once for dinner when a friend invited us and it was too crowded. Food was ok but you get this hurried feeling. We tried it again but this time for lunch and our experience vastly improved. We were not hurried. We took our time choosing food from the menu and we had some really good items. My daughter loved this chicken strips that were fried (I forgot what its called). Service during lunch time was fast and very efficient (perhaps owing to the fact that there were hardly anyone there). This resto offers great value for money. The food may not be authentic Japanese, but I'm really not complaining, food was tasty non the less.

I would recommend this place for lunch, try to avoid the crowd during dinner

“nice food with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Just like the title, nice food with good service.
Enough staff to make you feel welcome, rapid service and when you're done quick clean up!

Same excellent service as in Rotterdam

So a big +
