«Sumo» is the first most precious elitist Japanese restaurant in Riga. It was opened in the December 1999. Visitors of «Sumo» are dainty gourmets and also representatives from business circles. There it is possible to talk things over peacefully and leisurely. Design of «Sumo» excels with reserved elegance and a characteristic Eastern charm, homeliness and correctness. Important roles have the pendulant curtains that separate the tables from each other in the passages.
