Sumo is probably my favorite place in the Thousand Oaks area to get sushi. I'm a vegetarian, so I have only tried the vegetarian rolls (my favorite is the avocado roll, packed with avocado and so so good) but friends have praised their sushi with fish as well. Also, as weird as it sounds, I love the cajun fries. I don't know if french fries really go with sushi, but they're really good! Happy hour is from 3-6 pm and you can get pretty good deals during that time period.

Summary:

I generally like sushi and this place does a good job in serving decent fare. The menu offers many sushi and sashimi favorites, The quality is good, the service is efficient and the atmosphere is pleasant. The prices are not bad making this place a reasonable value.

Details:

We had finished our appointment in Thousand Oaks and wanted to find a place nearby for lunch. My colleague knew of the plaza where this restaurant was located so we opted to head there to survey our options. After some debate, we decided sushi sounded like a good bet.

The strip plaza was attractive enough in appearance and the storefront for this restaurant blended in well. The interior was also nicely done and presented an agreeable atmosphere in which to enjoy a meal. We were greeted and seated quickly. Our server attended to us right away and did a good job taking care of us. The service was efficient such that we were in and out relatively rapidly.

The menu offered several tempting options. We both decided on sushi plates from among the lunch specials. Mine included five pieces of assorted sushi with two types of tuna, salmon, yellow tail and shrimp. There were also eight pieces of a small roll. We opted for miso soup to go with our meals. It was all quite good and we were rather happy with our choices.

The prices were not bad. Our final cost was $33 which included our food, drinks, tax and tip. At $16.50 per person, we were happy enough with this deal.

In general, if you are looking for a satisfying lunch that won't require a lot of time this is a good choice. The menu options work well if you like sushi. The fare is good, the service is more than adequate and the atmosphere is enjoyable. The prices are not unreasonable for the quality of the experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this place if you like this style of cuisine.

We ordered a number of rolls and they were very good. There was a special roll, Kevin's special, and it was awesome.

Happy Hour is the best time to go. Their food is delicious. We go here as much as we can. Happy hour from 3-6 then reverse happy hour after 8. Our kids love the sushi here as well. We order appetizers- garlic chili edemame is good, anything sashimi, cucumber salad, we love spicy food-so anything here goes. The only thing we don't like is the rolls with lots of sauces or cooked fish so we stay away from those. Everytime we visit Thousand Oaks we visit Sumo. Have been there at least 20+ times.
