Out for a bite to eat while visiting from out of town. Ordered steak and chicken with spring rolls, which was over $15 with a drink. While waiting on my food , the spring rolls were delivered to my table. The staff advised that they were "waiting on the chicken." I didn't bother to ask exactly what that meant. Come... More

Mon is a great place to pickup a quick dinner or lunch here in Sumter. Not authentic Japanese food but that not the point here, just good quality food.

More of the "fast-casual" style, Mon Cafe offers good service, fast-er food, and tasty Japanese-American fusion cuisine. Popular teriyaki bowls but also limited sushi offerings are popular. Also, the restaurant offers a Rewards Clubs for regulars. If you're in town and want something aside from burgers but don't have a ton of time I recommend.

Anyway, if you come here expecting Jiro's Sushi, like some reviewer here, then you will be disappointed. This is not a high end Japanese food, so don't... More

Almost always get the chicken and steak entree. Huge portion and usually have enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Pour on some white sauce and enjoy!

I wouldn't call this Japanese food. If you love Chinese buffets and cheap Japanese hibachi then this place is for you. If you like authentic Japanese or Chinese food, go somewhere else. This is not that in the least.

Good place to stop by for lunch. Everyone working there is in good spirits and they have a good selection of teriyaki and hibachi bowls and entrees. Nice recommended stop in Sumter. Good portions too...
