“Delicious!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I love this place. The staff is always very friendly and accomodating and the food is always delicious. They have a good selection of food including Sushi, Sashimi, and cooked entrees. They have some more adventurous dishes such as an octopus salad. They even do take-out. Just call ahead and place an order.

“Good Sushi”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

They have Uni - my husband's favorite. That alone makes them great. Nothing really distinctive here, but just good sushi. Nice that the road construction has finally been finished. Very pleasant owners. Sushi bar a bit small so it's sometimes hard to get a seat there on the weekends. Worth going to because though the pieces are a bit small, the price is more reasonable than others further south in "trendier" parts of town.

“Value Sushi per piece and very good”
Reviewed 2 September 2011

Hi there.

We have been coming to this restaurant for some time - a wonderful owner who also at one time owned the produce store on Gunn Hwy and Casey Road was the chef.

The sushi pieces are smaller than most but value for the $ about 1/2 the price of most exclusive sushi joints in tampa.

The UNI my favorite is stellar and always fresh and the clay pot soup and Yakatori is unbelievable and hot.

The sake is fine but again one has to spend money to get the best there is a range of quality here.

It's like a strip mall restaurant and parking is tight.

The restrooms, and kitchen are very clean and the sushi chefs constantly query you to make sure the Sushi they prepare for you is to your liking.

I am saying it's very good just because of the very small pieces of sushi for the $; after all the buyer in this economy expects for value for the money.

overall the servers are nice, efficient and the place a quiet pleasure to eat in and enjoy friends or solo.

Keep up the great work and do not stop serving UNI it's hard to find at most places.

take care.

Jane and Team.

“Tomo sushi on Bearss”
Reviewed 15 September 2009

The best, most affordable sushi in Tampa. I have been to many sushi places in both Tampa and St Pete and none are of the consistent quality and price that Tomo is. I have returned to Tomo time and time again for more than 5 years and am never disappointed. They always greet me with a warm welcome and have gotten to know me and my boyfriend so well over the years that they greet us by name when we walk through the door (it's the "Cheers" of local sushi places). The fish is never fishy and they make a killer hand roll; if you like a spicy kick- try the Mario roll- YUM!
