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.
Visited this location for dinner (with kids) on a Thursday. I definitely recommend making reservations rather than just walking in like we did or else you may have to wait through a whole chef show to be seated while you wait for a chef. We waited in the lobby about 10 mins then waited about another 15 at our table for the chef. We had Peruvian chef Cynthia and she was so awesome! The food she made was FANTASTIC and the kids loved her. She was very sociable and a VERY good cook. It is a bit expensive - kids meals are $12 and adult entrees start at $25, BUT you get a ton of food - a big plus for me since the kids usually eat off my plate too and I'm lucky to get more than 2 bites of steak! Well worth it for a special occasion. Highly recommend the chef's special for two. Next time I might leave the kids behind, but we'll definitely be back, and with a reservation!
Spicy Ginger Asian Cafe, in my opinion, is a decent place to eat. It is very affordable. The food portion is a good amount for the price that you paid for. The drive-thru is a plus. I haven't seen any thai place that has drive-thrus. There are a variety of food choices from the menu. Structurally, the restaurant itself lacks some ambiance effect. The tables and chairs are not very comfortable. The walls are bare. You can see-through the ceiling. It really feels like eating inside a warehouse - literally. I asked for a fish sauce and I can definitely tell that it has been watered down (my husband told me that it is probably due to the strong smell of this sause and that the place is simply catering to American customers - makes sense I guess). But if you want something quick and different - and this place is definitely worth a try.
