Disappointing presentation at the grill side table. The cook seemed like he wished he was somewhere else. Steak was a bit chewy, soup was delicious, grilled rice - eh, vegetables good, sherbet - eh. The whole dinning experience left with a general impression of eh. Time to explore other restaurants more deserving of my hard earned money.

We were a group of 10 and were thrilled by the flavors and quality of the various hibachi meals we had, as well as some sushi rolls we had as appetizers. Everything was very nicely cooked! We were disappointed by our waitress though, who was less than friendly, practically tossing our soups, salads and drinks in front of us, and... More

Some of the best sushi I've ever had. I highly recommend the scallop roll !!! Owner and staff very friendly and professional. Tuna beautiful fresh color. They also have a hibachi section.

Bought takeout lunch, Chicken & Shrimp special. I arrived and the hostess was not very nice and it seemed she would rather be somewhere else. Very curt and somewhat dismissive and not even a hello or a thank you, etc. As for the food, it took longer that informed to receive it. While the portion size was decent, the quality... More

My son and I are regulars at Happy Sumo on Mt Vernon. :) we've been for Christmas, birthdays and sometimes just a Tuesday. This time I had the salmon, cooked perfectly by our very entertaining chef. I also had a rainbow roll - so happy to find great sushi to go with my dinner. I've gotten most of my friends... More

Food here is amazing! We ordered many sushi rolls, hibachi and nigiri and all tastes fantastic. In addition , our service was timely and friendly. Definitely recommend this place for your Japanese craving pallet.

Traditional hibachi menu offered in the 'show' kitchen or in a regular dining room, which also has sushi. We usually skip the 'show' kitchen as at this point, I don't see much difference in the show from restaurant to restaurant. We like this location because you can get hibachi in a normal dining room setting. Food is very good and... More

Had lunch there today. Food was bland and tasteless, plus it went right through me! The place does not feel "Happy" to me as the name might imply. It is dark and dirty. Doesn't look like it's been cleaned in a very long time. Splatters on the walls and ceilings and the hibachi grills have all kinds of food stuck... More

We held a birthday dinner in the restaurant. It is child friendly. Chef put on a nice display cooking the various dishes at our table. Knives flashed and shrimp flew. Everything was very tasty. The meal was not hurried. Children left satisfied and happy. Food items were on the pricey side, but the meals come with salad, rice and dessert.... More
