The large restaurant is rather amazing for a city the size of Ithaca. It has several public dining areas and several more private hibachi rooms. The food has always been good, the menu selection is extensive, and the service has been attentive and efficient. I have noticed, however, that since it opened, Sumo management has decided to serve smaller portions... More

From the outside you would never know that this quiet unassuming veneer (in a TJ Max shopping center) is the home of a beautiful and well appointed authentic hibachi restaurant. My whole family loves Sumo. They return again and again (lunch and dinner) to sample everything from sushi to stir fry. Quality of the food is top notch. Great decor... More

Great food, great service. The restaurant is quite a large espce, so i do suspect it could be unconfortable just for a cople. However, I visited the restaurant with about 10 other friends, and really enjoyed both times!

Very clean, well decorated and excellent service. My friend and I ordered four sushi rolls and the Aged Tofu, all delicious! A variety of options, and some surprising flavor combinations. Full bar and plenty of tables, looks like a great space for an event. Hope to return soon.

We love this place after waiting for years for our very own Ichiban, a Syracuse hibachi place we always went to. Sumo is on the expensive side, but when you want a night out for Japanese hibachi style cooking, this is the place. We tried the other place next to Applebee's but they didn't have a liquor license for years,... More

Was very surprised to find such a great sushi place in frozen, land-locked Central NY, but it's great. Delicious and fresh, all of their menu items are great. The chefs seem to all be Japanese--some don't even speak English, but their service is great and all are very friendly. Reasonable prices and good portions. Have eaten here many times and... More
