I've been to Sumo twice in a business lunch / dinner. The menu has a variety of dishes for all tastes. Sushis / sashimi came precisely organized and cut, on a very fresh condition. It is an average of 45 USD per person with a drink and tip, but it is worth going there. The place is well located, with... More

Decent Japanese/Chinese food at this restaurant. Staff were helpful and friendly. My son, who grew up in Singapore was craving Asian food and this hit the spot.

Loved the Sushi! Sat at the Hibachi since 10 out of 12 were interested in Hibachi. Staff was pretty attentive, though a few errors were made. Waitress was extremely busy and seemed to be handling all the hibachi tables with two assistants that apparently needed to be told what to do. My husband & I both enjoyed the sushi and... More

We were in Ithaca for something else, and it was after noon, and suddenly we were hungry. We were heading towards the Triphammer shopping district anyway, so SUMO seemed like a place to go. (I'd seen signs on Rt 13 advertising it, figured it was worth a try). She ordered a salad and chirashi, I ordered miso soup and Yaki... More

Don't get turned off by the mall location--once inside this place is actually kind of groovy. Service is excellent and bartender knows what she is doing. Reservations a good idea if on a busy weekend. Best thing is the sushi--I am very picky about my sushi/sashimi and I can say this was top notch fresh and well-cut fish. We shared... More

If you like hibachi, you may give this a higher rating. I am not crazy about it, thus the rating of 3.

The décor was nice and it was clean. We were a little early for dinner... 4ish. There was only one other group in the place. We were seated and waited on in record time. Sushi was on the table in about 5 minutes. (4 rolls) Prices were average for sushi only we found the rolls a little bigger than normal... More

I recently went here with friends and was sat somewhat quickly. There was few people dinning but the service was soo slow. The waiter hardly came to the table and most of the dinner someone's drink was out for quite a while. Although it took a really long time our group had very mixed feelings on all the sushi rolls...

We made reservations for 8 people well in advance but waited 10 minutes to be seated...not a big deal but then we waited over 20 minutes just for a server to take a drink order. We tried to order our food at the same time we ordered the drinks but the server wouldn't let us. We all would have liked... More

We eat here often. My wife has ordered a variety of dishes, including sushi, and is usually quite pleased with what she orders. I always order the Chicken Katsu, as I am not a sushi person. The Chicken Katsu is quite tasty, and the portion size is reasonably large. It comes with a choice of soup or salad, and is... More
