I have been to this location several times, and I have never been disappointed. The service is always good, and the sushi is great, both in terms of quality and variety. The restaurant is clean, with an open, cheerful floor plan. Nothing too cluttered.It can be very busy on the weekend. Generous portions.

I have been to sumo a number of times over the years. The sushi is usually very fresh and tasty. But the last time I went they decided not to serve me and my guest. We got up after 20 minutes and left. One waiter and two on the sushi bar. The previous time I went the service was better... More

Daughter and I ordered four sushi rolls to share and edamame. The rolls were well made, but two had too much chili oil and were a bit too spicy. Generous portions with good quality fish. The edamame never arrived. Our drinks were never refilled. We had trouble locating our waitress and the person at checkout had trouble with the charge... More

The Westmoreland roll can't be beat. I wished they opened up earlier so I could have breakfast sushi. The service is spot on and speedy fast. Whenever I call in an order Togo they always have it ready when I arrive.

The food was good overall and priced reasonably. The sashimi tasted fresh. The teppanyaki chef kept diners entertained. Service was good.

I've been going here since Sumo opened many years ago. Recently the ownership has changed, along with wait staff and management. Chefs appear to be unchanged. The new changes are certainly not for the better. The new management has no clue how to operate a restaurant that has paying customers. 1. Loudly admonishing the kitchen in earshot of customers is...

We have frequently eaten at & purchased take out food over the years from Sumo. While the quality itself has remained consistent, prices have risen and portion size is noticeably smaller. Many business use this tactic of smaller portion size even after raising prices. As a consumer I object to this tactic & will instead take my patronage to Japanese... More

Everything I've tried at SUMO has been great. I don't live in SLO, but it's the GO TO place for my family that does live there. The staff is friendly and attentive. Everything is so good, we always over-order.

Out in the San Luis Obispo suburbs one wouldn't expect this fine a restaurant, and Japanese authenticity to boot.
