I had a very mixed-bag experience with this restaurant, but I overall think that they have potential and so I am leaving a good review. I will start with the negatives: - The bibimpap wasn't very good or traditional, and lacked vitality. I think that this isnt because of the skill of the chef or anything, just that his talents...

Some of the best fresh fish sushi I have ever had. I watched the owner make other things while I ate at the bar, the way he handled the fish and examined it to see how to make a slice to it made me know he really had been doing this a long time and knows his fish! I wish... More

Sumo Sushi is one of those places I always have to stop in whenever I visit Newport. No matter what I always have to get the spicy crunchy crab hand roll. The service is great and they always remember you.

The nigiri were the largest portions I have ever had; much more than the traditional mouthful. Good variety, freshness and quality in the standard lunch platter. Service a little slow; probably because everything is made to order as at classic sushi bars - not in advance and put in refrigerator. Don't go to Sumo for chowder or a Newport creation:... More

The place is upstairs with a nice sushi bar, very simple and the chef-owner very nice, I wanted to order uni (sea urchin) but they didn't have any, hence 4 stars. Everything else was delicious and fresh. We tried the 8 Pc sushi mix, it came with a California roll for $20, not bad at all. I would've eaten more... More

You can't eat chowda 3x/day while in Newport. Nice atmosphere, great location, decent prices. Delightful change of pace while here.

The wait staff is inattentive and unhelpful. The single waiter at the restaurant did have much knowledge of the menu. He dis not refill drinks despite the fact only two parties of two were at the restaurant. He did not understand that when asked if the chef had any recommendations on the quality of the fish for the day that... More

Tucked up on the second floor with friendly service. Genuine Japanese cooking that is reasonably priced. Well done.
