“Low End Sushi in a McDonalds-like fast food outlet”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

The sushi is not tasty. Don't bother going. If you are on the restaurant row astride the US Navy base in Juffair, there are way superior dining options of all ilks. Avail yourself of one of them but not Sumo. If you want sushi, go to Sato in the Gulf Hotel and splurge on half-price night.

“Great sushi”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Been a fan of this restaurant when I was in Bahrain. There's a certain taste that lingers in your taste buds...that you will always crave for it. Check this out you will love it.

“Okay for a quick sushi fix”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

We went here the other day and I would have to say it is fairly average, as far as sushi restaurants go. The pieces were bigger and chunkier than I prefer, and there were several pieces that I simply could not cut or chew, which is kind of a killer for me. Not sure why sushi restaurants serve pieces like that, but somebody must like them. Service was fairly slow also as there were quite a few people in the restaurant. I don't know, I probably would not go back given all of the other better dining choices around. To me, it is just one more in an almost unterminable string of mediocre sushi experiences (with one notable exception) I've had recently.
