I've eaten sushi at all the LA hot spots - Teru Sushi, Katsu-ya (before it was famous, even), Mori Sushi (my absolute favorite in the world) - but this little hole in the wall does the trick when you're tired, don't feel like spending a lot, and just want a decent meal. The rice is always fresh-cooked, so very nice... More

Ok let me begin by saying the service at this restaurant makes you want to really lose your mind. So I get there with my best friend, and we are seated by a woman who is literally in some rush to get back to whatever she was doing when we got there, so she seats us, and basically runs away,...

Went to Sumo Sushi on Sunday night 1/27/13. Expected much more after reading reviews here and on Yelp. I don't get the positive reviews either for quality of food or ambiance.

The entire staff was friendly, remembered me from my previous visit a month earlier, helpful with the explaining new menu items. Some of the best sushi I have ever had. In addition to sushi, be sure to try the oysters.

One of the Valley's best Sushi places. A hole in the wall kinda place, but the best Sashimi for the price, thick cuts & melts-in-your-mouth. Great portions & even better price. Definitely better than the other 'big' named Sushi Places.
