Reviewed 19 March 2015 via mobile

Having been to Sushidai in Tokyo it is hard to be impressed however the chef here achieved the seemingly impossible - he spoke little English but then again we didn't come for conversation. It was easy to point to the items we wanted and of course the most important dish - toro - fatty tuna, you must not forget to order this! It was sensational, melting on the tongue. All the fish was super fresh and tasted wonderful as did the warm rice he used and the special pale wasabi. They were also very kind and brought us small dishes to try on the house. Only locals were dining here! A must in Kumamoto, we will certainly be back!

Sumo Sushi has been a real winner in the past. While it has lost a little bit of its unique style, it still serves up great sushi / sashimi.
The staff are pleasant and good at what they do sadly, the unique qualities of old have been lost. It is good for a relaxing drink and, some good fresh seafood but, I feel the sparkle has been lost a little.
Lots of similar style restaurants and before - it used to stand out from the crowd. Now, it has drifted towards the average.
Still nice. Still fun. Can be expensive.
