    Food was delicious and good value, for sushi. The staff were welcoming, attentive and friendly, but we did have to wait longer than I'd have liked for service as the restaurant got busier later in the evening. Crazy hot outside but the aircon kept it cool enough inside!

    The food was delicious and nicely presented and the staff were very friendly. We were a large group but the staff were very good to us. The only issue we had was we could not book a table for 8 on the website so had to book 2 tables of 4 but when we arrived there was a table for 8 and we could together. Our orders came at a decent time. This was our visit but we will certainly come back.

    It was my friend's first time eating Japanese food and she loved it! The staff were fabulous and very accommodating with her mobility issues. They were able to seat us in a way that made sure we were comfortable throughout the whole meal. The cocktails were delicious and the food wonderful. We'll definitely be returning in the near future.

    There was a nasty smell and the place looked rather tired. Also no vegetable dumplings left an hour after opening. Hardly anyone in and yet ages to be served.

    Love Sumo Fresh but not being able to give the waiting staff a tip by card is really strange. Makes you feel bad for not having the means to tip them, especially as our waiter was great. Love the food, its simply delicious. But leaving the restaurant I felt bad and sorry for my waiter.

    No. 1 great customer service. Katsu curry doesn’t come with sauce if you get it without rice etc., not sure if it does otherwise. Drinks aren’t cheap but no worse than anywhere else. Sashimi was phenomenal, gyoza the best I’ve ever had. 👍🏻

    Food always fresh and of the highest quality. Brought two friends along both who had never been to the restaurant and one who had never tried sushi before - both loved it! The wide range of non-sushi dishes make it appealing to sushi haters. One of the best sushi restaurants in London.

    Food was excellent but last orders were at 9.30 and by 10 they were packing up the other tables around us which wasn’t great. The website said last orders were at 10.30 but Google said 9.30 so should have trusted Google. Other than that, it was ambient, service was good, and it’s excellent value for money

    I love Sumo Fresh, I vist quite a lot. However, I tried the Duck Ramen Noodle Soup for the first time and was quite shocked by the 'duck' I was given. It was 70% duck skin and fat/blubber - completely white fatty blubber, with only 30% actual meat. I don't mind a bit of fat, but this was really off-putting, I had to fish it all out and leave on the side of the plate because it was making me feel sick. Do not serve people that. If you don't have enough duck, just say you can't do it. This was not a 'style' or way of serving, it was truly gross. The baked crabstick starter and prawn tempura hand roll were excellent as always, the duck main ruined it for me.
