My grandchildren love sushi and Sumo had everything they like. We had quite a few selections and we even had a few of the combination bento boxes. Everything was delicious. The service was great.

A friend recommended this place so we stopped in for lunch. The lunch combos were fabulous. They have many selections on the menu to meet the taste needs of all. They have sushi also. I was able to order a glass of wine. The service was very good.

All of us decided on the 3 item Bento box lunch. What a good choice! They were delicious! We each were given miso soup to start. The box came with salad, rice, and a dollop of wasabi and ginger. Several of us selected 2 different fish sashimi and a sushi roll of our choice. Each sashimi came on a bed... More

This is our go to restaurant. The sushi is always fresh and the presentation is very appealing to the eye. My personal favorite roll is the HOT roll. I get this every time I go. The bento box lunch and dinners are delicious. We go once or twice a month and have been doing this for the last 5 years... More

I was first skeptical about this place after reading the reviews of past customers but once I stepped inside this place, I was glad I decided to try it. I have to say, if you want to try something different you won't be disappointed. It can be noisy but I say come early because the crowds do come later and... More

One of the best sushi restaurants in Ventura we had five different specialty rolls they all tasted excellent. My favorite was the dynamite roll and the garlic edamame. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly

We had an average family dinner here. We tried their sushi, and several rolls. The were fine, but most of the rolls included tempura. I don't want this when I go to a Japanese restaurant. All the rolls had cucumber in them even though this is not mentioned on the menu. Not inspiring sushi if this is what you want.

Had a fun night out at Sumo. It was my first visit. They put on quite a show cooking the food in front of you. The chef we had really included us in his routine. It was a riot! I got the filet and he cooked it perfectly. I would definitely do this again.
