I've been there twice, and never disappointed! Excellent sushi, sashimi and tempura! The service is good, and they put great effort into assuring your pleased. They don't make mixed drinks, but will provide these upon request from the bar next door, which we found quite good!

We came here because of the menu. The restaurant was pretty empty during dinner hours so that should have been a red light. They didn't have 2 of our choices of dishes, neither did they have Asahi!! - Taking into account that this is a Japanese restaurant! A big shame!

Was looking for Japanese food and I found this place near my hotel. Very good sushi rolls and food. Ate way too much but it was worth it.

Went out looking for a cheerful place that could look after a vegetarian and myself. Pleasantly surprised, great number of lovely dishes, well presented and service is quick.

I agree regarding the service delays! Unacceptable for the price that you're paying for! The rice is delayed. Then they forget about my payment! Had to follow-up twice... Same w/ the coffee! Paid more than 6k for 6 people and this is what we get. But good food!

My experienced at Sumo Sam, Ayala Techno Hub, Camp John Hay Baguio City last May 2, 2016 was so horrible, owners of this franchise/chain should look into it. I suffered & still recuperating from diarrhea, vomiting, cold sweat & chills several hours after eating my Sumo Sam Maki & Kani Salad. I was thankful that my 2 young children didn't... More

Ate here with a few coworkers for an early dinner. I had good expectation but was very disappointed. Their extensive menu wowed me but most of it was not available. They also ran out of most of there beer selection. The sushi here was good but I feel like it could have been better. I would recommend the other restaurants... More

Good value. Limited sushi and sashimi selection but was pleased that they had Uni available. The Uni was delightful with good portion served at nice temp. Rainbow roll is average. Sushi rice needs work. If only Hamachi was offered:/ Pickled ginger was not fresh. Salmon sashimi was decent. Overall menu is diverse: soups, teppan yaki, tempura...
