We tend to frequently eat at Hibachi grills for special occasions. (Mainly when in Houston since we had not been impressed with the ones we have eaten at in SA). So we know who has the best soup, salad, rice etc). We actually gave Sumo another chance after we starving and disgruntled, gave up waiting for a table on a busy Sat night ( now we know to make a reservation). (We weren't impressed when it was Benni Hana's - so we never choose to come to Sumo). We came on Easter Sunday 2016 and we were pleasantly surprised! We were most impressed with the quality of the regular Hibachi steak and shrimp. The hot Tazo green tea was wonderful too. Actually the steak's flavor and tenderness is the best we've had at a Hibachi restaurant. Everything else was good too although the best soup and salad honor remains in Houston. We will definitely come back for special occasions in the near future.

I come to Sumo once every week or two. The sushi is delicious, always fresh and flavorful. I always get the calamari roll and something new and have yet to be disappointed. The appetizers are, well, appetizing. I'm especially a fan of the calamari steak. The hibachi is its own experience. I take my parents whenever they come to visit. The chefs are both skilled in their culinary arts and in entertainment. Just try to not have a good time when you're catching shrimp in midair. The best part of the experience is the welcoming and friendly staff. Both the servers and the chefs are very engaging and will make you want to come back. Overall, Sumo is a solid 5 stars for the combination of delicious food, welcoming atmosphere, and high quality entertainment.
Sumo's has always been a top contender when it comes to any type of celebratory reason, or just for the heck of it. We usually come if it's someone's birthday or if someone is visiting from out of town. Tonight we came because it's my sister-in-law's and niece's last weekend here before they head back to Louisiana. =( If you come for your birthday, they make a big deal out of it and it's quite fun! They give you a lei, a pineapple boat, and sing you Happy Birthday in Japanese, drum included. Free? No, it's for a small fee but they take your picture (or used to anyway - can't remember if they still do).
