We have been going to Little Sumos for several years. Have gotten take out for the 4 of us as family as well as platters for guests. Gotta try the bay scallop Sushumi. Always fresh, always creatively presented. We could eat their food every day of the week.

I really enjoyed their sushi 3 years ago when I had it but this year it was awful.. tasted like ammonia including the ginger. Seemed like the rice had vinegar in it.. the pork dumplings were good but the rolls were not appealing. It seemed like the fish was fresh but the rice around was off... sorry to say but... More

Management response:

Ooch!! I'm sorry that the rolls were not appealing.However tasting like ammonia?That's a new one and I will look into it. But I hope you understand that sushi rice is prepared with rice vinegar. At any rate, I hope you try us again Angela J. More

My husband and I followed the recommendation of a local to go to Little Sumo's. Awesome ! The sushi was fresh and excellent. Loved it. Staff is cheerful. Family run. We were there at the end of the off season, so sitting at the sushi bar was no problem. I would imagine it would be very crowded in season. Well... More

We were directed to Little Sumo's by some friends who said it was good. The strip mall it is in does not give one the greatest sense of comfort that the sushi will be good... but when you go inside and see how clean it is and how terrific the fish looks, plus some of the orders that are waiting...

Good sushi for a vacation spot. Kind of expensive, no lunch specials... Only a sushi bar to sit at, so we had to do take-out.

Walked in at 8:10 with a party of four. Three employees and the sushi chef watched as we sat down and got comfortable. A server started walking towards us with menus, when the chef stopped her and said something. She then walked over and said "we only do takeout after 8". So we got up and walked out. The one...

If you're on LBI in the middle of May, you won't have a lot of restaurant choices available to you. If you have a taste for sushi, you're in worse luck........unless you go to the Little Sumo Sushi shack. Open now weekdays and weekends, a diamond in the rough. Yes shack, no, not a restaurant, but the best/freshest sushi EVER
