The restaurant just re-opened after being closed for a year due to Covid. We just moved here 11 months ago, so we had never tried it until tonight. We were looking for somewhere close to where we live due to pouring rain, and we decided...to gamble on eating here. What a wonderful surprise! We ate at one of the 6 hibachi grills. We saw three chefs working, and they were all very talented, engaging, and fun! The food was incredible! Between us, we had the steak, shrimp, and chicken. The sides to go with that were huge! It was a nice surprise to get the noodles, as well as the rice and veggies, soup and salad. The food was cooked PERFECTLY! (Ask for Chef Lee!) Even more so, though, we were really impressed with the customer service! From the host to our waitress to our bus boys, their focus was on making it a good experience for us. We had to wait fir about 10 minutes for our chef, so they felt bad and brought us an appetizer and an apology! They are a multitude of booths and even a bar with seating. There is no outdoor seating, but there was plenty of room to spread out. There were a couple of birthdays celebrated while we were there, and treats were brought out for the whole group, not just the birthday girls. There is an extensive sushi menu, but we don't do sushi, so I can't comment on that. The highest cost on the menu was $30 for the hibachi lobster. We felt the prices were reasonable, especially considering how much food we got. Expect everyone to be taking home leftovers! These guys are really busting their tail ends to provide good food and service. We highly recommend this restaurant!More

What a great local restaurant - five minutes from my son's house in St. Johns Golf & Country Club. My sister was in town for July 4th and wanted to get out of the house, have fun and eat some great food. Seven of us...all together (including our 7 year old grandtwins. We sat around one of the several grill-top hibatchi tables and watched our Chef do his thing. Food was very tasty, obviously great temperature with great service. And also, best sushi in the area. Nice wine and beer list. If you're llooking for a great Japanese steakhouse experience . . . Sumo is your place, hands down. All good - no nonsense.More

I typically dine at places that have high marks, this included. I am assuming that the high marks are for the hibachi. I was looking for a good, clean restaurant for sushi. I found the service to be slow and the sushi bland. I wish...that I had not gone to the restroom as I found it to be very dirty. I will not return. I found a better choice close by.More

After a day of running around due to appointments, I decided to get a bento box for lunch. It was very tasty and quick. Service was fast and friendly.

So I wanted to try some sushi in the area and I was not disappointed. They were amazing rolls that I had and I sat at the bar where you can watch them make it. The bento box was an amazing affordable lunch. Cannot wait...to go back.More

Had dinner at this restaurant last evening. We went because our grandchildren enjoy the hibachi experience. Expect to be in your seat for about an hour before one of the chefs makes your meal on the grill. We found the food just average or worse....Heavy salt in all the sauces overwhelmed any taste. The floor was very dirty and the place looks poorly maintained. We won't be back.More

We stopped here for a quick dinner. They brought us out an appetizer on house. We had a spicy tuna roll and an eel roll. They were both pretty good. The hibachi had good flavor as did the clear soup and ginger salad that came...with the meal. At the end of the dinner they gave us a complimentary orange for dessert. The only complaint is the AC is either off or broken here.More

We stopped here for a quick dinner, we reserved by five different people, two guys brought us the same appetizer, on house, twice. AC is off in this place, my clothes are smelling like smoke from frying oil now. Sticky floors in toilets and had...paper sticking all over my shoes. Not nice at all. King Roll is nice fatty meal but tempura too hard around it. Salmon tamakis are great. Miso soup alright, big portion. Overall, not worth going to.More

Hibachi side of the restaurant is wonderful, and the chefs put on the required show while cooking. Can't comment on the sushi, as I don't care for it, and have never tried it here.
