Dining options: Reservations
Description: «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.

as recommended by some friends, we went there with very much high expectation. i can only say that i can't be more disappointed. the sushi is ok, but the soup was apparently made by adding boiled water to some packaged soup powder. and the noodles? just instant noodles you can buy anywhere in Eastern Asian. And also, they call a spring roll a japen cuisine? and instant noodles with that soup also ? only the decoration and service are decent. not a little worthwhile for what they charged, and won't go there for sure.

I chose this restaurant due to Trip Adviser rankings and although I wanted to try some local food I could not find anything good enough. All the traditional Latvian restaurant I visited were looking like being closed - no clients, no smell of the food, no music, no atmosphere. I entered steak house e.g. and grill was not even fired - of course I was told that it is not problem for them but I did not took a risk. Finally being very hungry already I decided to take one traditional Latvian restaurant and it was a mistake. Being convinced that I can not find any good Latvian restaurant I decided to try Sumo.
And it was definitely very good choice. The food is really excellent although not cheap. Service is quite good and atmosphere is nice. Choice of the dishes is really impresive as regards different ideas for Japanese cuisine. If You are in Riga You have to try it.

The service is very accommodating however some of the dishes do not deliver. Eclectic menu built upon traditional Japanese fare, however the classics are consistent whilst the melange is hit & miss.
