“The Service and Management Going Downhill...”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

So sad. Have been going to Tomo Sushi for YEARS. We go probably several times a month. Have "recruited" several families who also love it. It WAS great, now horrible.

The food is still great....unbelievable freshness for the middle of the desert. But the service, particularly the managers, his horrible. They just do not care about servicing the customers...especially in this horrible economy. They run out of beer? They wont let you order something you have ordered for years even though it is the same ingredients as other dishes? And then they talk to you like garbage when you try to explain the growing problems. So weird. This GEM of the West Valley is going downwards.

The wait staff is great. Management is horrible. Miss the old chefs. The new chefs look at you like you are the enemy. So weird.

“Delicious! Well worth it..great choice for sushi in the West Valley”
Reviewed April 13, 2012 via mobile

Attentive service, nice atmosphere, and above all, tasty sushi! I had the Spicy Ninja Roll (awesome spicy and sweet flavors), spicy yellowtail (cool and flavorful), and salmon roll (full of salmon goodness...no skimping on the fish here).

Happy hour prices were very reasonable (as were the normal prices).

If you're looking for a good sushi restaurant in the West Valley, Tomo is a fine choice. Would visit again without hesitation.

“Japanese Cuisine done right”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

The night we were there my wife and I took her mother (she lives in Japan) and our children. The 5 of us were seated promptly. The drink order was taken and the drinks were brought pretty quickly. There was a bit of lag time between getting refills, but they were busy also. We ordered several rolls and they just kept bringing them out.
The food was very good, very fresh and very appealing in presentation. The waitress didn't understand the one part of our order so she brought the wrong item out, but apologized and brought out the correct item soon after.

“Best Sushi in the West Valley!”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We went here for dinner, and I'll say the atmosphere and sushi did not disappoint, We had a couple of different types of sushi, and sushi rolls, and all of them were fresh and quality cuts! They have definitely made an effort to be a place to go for drinks as well, even though we did not any on this visit. However, I was impressed with the freshness of the sushi, and even the wasabi was good.

The only drawback on this visit was the service. After being seated, it took five minutes for a server to come ask us if we wanted drinks, and then a bit more to order food. The food was brought out by a manager or one of the sushi chefs, so the food was delivered in a timely and good manner! Yet, after eating, we did have to wait on the check for an extended time as well. Perhaps there was some issue going on that we were not aware of, but it seems the manager or chef was the only one noticing us and not the server we initially had.

Yet in comparison to the other nearby sushi restaurants I still recommend this one! We've actually been there a couple of times and each time I'm impressed with the presentation and quality of the sushi! We'll be back!

“I love Tomo!!”
Reviewed April 21, 2011

Consistently good. Consistently fresh.
Owner Brian is very nice and appreciative of his customers.
Sure, sometimes the service is a little slow, but isn't sushi to be a nice relaxing dining experience? I'm in no rush to get in and get it. I like to enjoy one or 2 rolls at a time.
I have tried the others and they can't compare to Tomo. Also, very resonably priced for the size of rolls you get.
Oh great.... now I'm craving a Goodyear roll!!
