Meal was excellent, fairly priced, great service, would definitely stop there again when in the neighborhood. - it was totally unexpected for a storefront restaurant.

Had the bento box for lunch and everything was fresh and tasty. Very good service as well. I would highly recommend this place. Next time I'll try more of the sushi but what I had was very good.

No fast food here. A comfortable sushi bar with fresh food and table service for those that want to sit. Private rooms are also available for small groups. As often as I have eaten here, I am always glad to return.

Not many good sushi restaurant in Wilmington/Newark infortunately. But this definately offers the best quality in town. I like the "love boat" since it offers the best raw fish, rolls and sushi. Today I tasted spicy rolls and shashimi set. I like the middle portion of rolls, made of cruch fish. Must visit.

Decent tempura, and pretty good beef teriyaki. Service was prompt , and overall was a good stop. It's a bit hard to find in a strip mall with a Walgreens.

I love Sushi Sumo. I have never had a bad experience. When sitting at the sushi bar, I am always treated like I am the only one in the restaurant... the chefs have even given us new rolls to try... free of charge. I enjoy the ambiance and the selection! This is my and my husband's go-place for sushi. We... More

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in Delaware! I come in at least once a month and always leave happy. They have very friendly waitresses who serve you in a timely manner! You are greeted with a warm towel to wipe your hands and face with which is a nice touch. My favorite sushi roll is the Spicy Thai Girl!... More

Nice evening in a new to me sushi restaurant. Nice atmosphere. Service was okay, not bad, not great. Sushi was fast and very attractively presented. Enjoyed the different choices as well as miso soup. I would return when in area.

We went there for the first time this evening and right away I was impressed by the cleanliness and decor. The menu is strictly Japanese and it features live lobster and real crab. I had a seafood tempura which included a lobster tail and was too much for me to finish. My husband had a bento box which he also... More
