Went with a very large group of 18 to celebrate 4 birthdays. Sat at two tables opposite each other so everyone could see both their own table and the one opposite. Everyone had a blast from the 2 year olds through the 84 year old. Great entertainment, wonderful food. Grandkids are already asking when we can go back

The food prices are extremely exacerbated, sushi rice is not cooked properly (has actually been CRUNCHY in the center of the grain) and the meats/fish are of subpar grade. Nothing ever tastes "fresh". The service is great, just not the quality of food. I've just given up on the hope that it'll get better...

Unbelievably disturbing! We started out waiting at the table for 20 minutes because the waitress didn't want to take our table. The busboy then came to set the table and dropped his napkin on the floor before he dried the plates with it for distributing them to us. We then had to wait for food before the silver was provided.... More

1. A good cleaning around the grill would be nice. 2. As your having dinner the cleaning crew is putting up all the chairs wiping floors. 3. Warm sushi is new to me and scary 4. Overcooked chicken 5. Update the routine on occasion and multi task in cooking food. 6. There is nothing like paying for an upscale meal... More

Living in this part of the Midwest, one cannot expect truly authentic Japanese food, particularly sushi, but Sumo pleasantly surprised me. Sushi was decent with lots of choices to choose from. Tuna was fresh without typical fishy smell or weird taste. I wish they had Green Tea Ice Cream in their menu, but all in all, it was a good... More

Took a group of 21 in for a meal. Their were two hostesses at the front desk. One was quite helpful and friendly and explained that our entire group would need to be present before getting a table, which we had expected. It wasn't a busy night, and she told us that they would go ahead and prepare two adjoining... More

The type of restaurant where cooking is done at your table. Usual " cooking " as entertainment, but the results here are great. You might have to wait till table is filled,if your group doesn't fill the table, others will be seated there to fill in.

This place used to have great sushi and fantastic sushi, but in the past few months, it has just declined!! It was a great place to go and eat and have good drinks, but now it's a place that is good if you want to wait over 10 minutes for a water request or service order. Plus - we've had... More

One important note is that this restaurant does not and would not take reservations even for our large group as of our June visit. This made it a long wait for the large group of 16 that required two tables. The wait was at least 40 minutes although all but one of the group was there at the appointed time.... More
