I've been coming here off and on for the past 10 years and I always leave happy. The decor is visually appealing with an authentic Japanese and Asian inspired interior design.

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...More
