Description: Restaurant opened in November 2011, and has been busy all days of the week since it opened. The fish is fresh, the owners are Japenese and very excited to offer good sushi to the local population. The sushi has always been fresh, service can sometimes be slow, but patrons don't seem to mind waiting since the food is so good and the atmosphere is fun and friendly. Please consider adding this fun Sushi/Japanese restaurant to your list of places to eat in Mildenhall.

“Great food, friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

The sushi was fresh and very good. I had the Predator roll (fried chicken) and the rolls were very large. I also enjoyed the shrimp tempura. It is a small restaurant but the atmosphere is nice and the waitress was very polite and helpful. Will definitely go back.

“Fresh Choice for a Pleasant Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

We stopped here for lunch and had a pleasant time. The atmosphere is cafe style, but with Japanese features (wall hangings, background music).

The staff are polite and helpful. There is not traditional "table service," but orders are taken at the till by way of filling in an order sheet (noting portion sizes, quantities, etc). The order is brought to the table when prepared, and the wait, considering all food is freshly prepared, is reasonable.

We had three maki rolls (Tuna, Eel, and a Salmon-Avocado mix) as well as mixed tempora, and my partner also had Yakitori (the chicken was from dark meat portions). All of the food was well prepared and presented. The ginger, wasabi, and shoyu were all of good quality as well.

Overall, the meal was authentic (based on my three years living on Okinawa), tasty, and relatively good value for money. It is a place to visit again.

The sushi rolls Are amazing I've had the Sun rolls, Dragon Rolls, Volcano rolls, Crouching tiger rolls and many others on their menu and they are all absolutely delicious and fresh! I am so glad I found good sushi so close to my home. And the service is fast and friendly too.

“Fresh fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

I think it's great! I've never liked squid before but their squid is really yummy. They're very kid friendly and the size of the room is quite big, considering it's Mildenhall.

“Fresh Fish, Fun Owners, Good Times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

Hidden in the side streets of downtown Mildenhall, United Kingdom sits this great little sushi spot. Sumo Sushi is a small Japanese sushi restaurant nestled into this small town is a place where you can be served fresh sushi handmade. Each order is made to order by one chef. I was told by the owners (Japanese) that the restaurant opened in November of 2011 and has been consistently busy every day and I can definitely see why since the food is so fresh. The menu is creative and offers a little bit for everyone. They have hand rolls, sashimi, Nigiri (sushi), fried tofu, Japanese beer, hot saki, rolls. The restaurant's staff quickly greeted us and set us up at a small table. The place can only seat about 20 people when full. This is okay since the chef can only cut and hand roll each order so fast (depending on how many large orders go in at once, you might have to wait a while for your food).

They music selection was Korean and Japanese songs (all very easy to listen to and not obnoxious or set too loud). The place looked very clean and the owners each seemed to have a very strong sense of pride in their food, the restaurant, and their service.

The food tasted great and was extremely fresh. I recommend it for anyone new or old to sushi and it makes for a great place to have a good time or eat out.

My only markdown to the restaurant is the cost of the sushi. Prices are a bit high (in my opinion). Rolls are about 8 to 12 GBP per roll, sashimi was about 4-8 GBP, and beers were easily 5-6 GBP. Aside from the above average price and 10% gratuity added to the check before leaving, this place is worth eating at or trying. I think everyone can appreciate the food in this small town as it is hard to find a sushi place which offers such high quality fish to it's customers in the area.

Have fun and invite me along if you go.
