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.
Everything was great food and service but the only thing that bothered us was that the employees that had finished their shifts sat down in the booth in front of us and ordered food and bottles of wine and they were being very loud and talking in such vulger language I was trying to have a respectable evening and romantic dinner with my husband but it was ruined. The employees had states to their friends that later joined them that they're not suppose to be drinking after work but that sometimes they get away with it.. Their should be a break room for them to go in our at least i'm an empty section poof the restaurant not bothering the paying customers
