    Whew! I wish you could give more than 5 stars to some places…and this is one of the ones at the top of my list!
    I have been coming here for well over a decade and it never fails to deliver top notch food, on par with what I have when I travel to Japan.
    Victor and his wife are hard working, people pleaser and he is a fantastic sushi chef!
    He works hard to get the freshest food and goes over the top to ensure you enjoy it.
    The crowd can be a bit excitable at times, so sometimes not a super quiet place, but ALWAYS a fun place, to enjoy a meal and a libation!

    We went on our first date here back in 2018, and we keep coming back because it’s so delicious. They are hands-down, still the best sushi in RVA, possibly even in VA. The sashimi and sushi are always fresh, and drinks are just right. Their service is fast and friendly. We love our Sumo San nights and highly recommend!!!!

    The food was good before I found the bug in it. There were also many different gnats and mosquitoes flying all around the table, all around my head and face very uncomfortable dining experience, and when I let the waitress know that my food had a bug in it, she immediately took it away, and I still paid full price for my meal…

    I had high hopes; but Sumo San’s sushi is just ok. My friend and I ordered the Crouching Tiger, London, and New York rolls. The London was heavily fried and the fish was way over-cooked. The NY and Crouching Tiger rolls were decent, but somewhat bland and nothing to write home about. There are much better sushi spots in RVA. That being said, service was good and our waitress was really nice.

  26. Scott Miller 2022/09

    The best sushi in Richmond! Such a fun place. Go see Victor and scratch that sushi itch. You won’t be disappointed!

    Excellent sushi! I had the London roll and my gf had the Crouching Tiger. Excellently plated and the wait wasn’t long at all! And they have Kikkoman plum wine here, which is phenomenally sweet and delicious.

    Conveniently located right on main street ( right across from Miyabi, which is also fantastic), it’s not too hard to find parking and the prices were competitive! Added to the rotation

    Some of the best sushi I’ve had abd I’ve had sushi all over the world! Fresh & beautifully presented. The inside is cute, nice handcrafted tables, laid back vibe. Only thing missing was cool music to go with the retro vibe. Love the yakisoba-perfectly seasoned and not too oily. The waitress is great-attentive without being on top of you. Totally unpretentious vibe. Will be back!

  39. LeeAnn Hardy 2021/12

    I’m not sure what kind of hibachi this is. Money literally wasted! The “Yum Yum” sauce was disgusting!! 🤮🤢It left a BAD after taste in my mouth and they were very stingy with the extra sauces even after I told them I didn’t mind paying $1 each! Will NOT go back!

    Miso soup, fail. It was room temperature and had two small pieces of tofu.
    Hand rolls were mostly rice.
    Sushi rolls were mostly rice too.
    Do not order their fried calamari. How is this place so bad? And the order took forever. The best part of our meal was my Kirin light beer. Take your money and sushi cravings somewhere else.

    This restaurant is really really slow. Food is just average. Only chef and one host running the restaurant at prime time. Come here only if you are not so hungry and have 2 hrs to spare at this restaurant!

  45. Haley Wiese 2021/08

    This sushi spot serves extremely fairly priced yet fresh, flavorful and delish sushi! I was able to get a salmon avocado roll, side salad, and miso soup all for $10! Those who enjoy sushi know that this isn’t super common from restaurants that serve well made sushi, but sumo san checks all of the boxes. Definitely check this place out if you’re in the Richmond area.

  46. Klara Raymond 2021/08

    We came here to eat pretty late around 9 and glad they were open till 10. Only one main server and one if the Sushi chefs helped serve us. We ordered a bottle of sake – Sho Chiku Bai Nigori and that was pretty good. You got a little more of that rice taste due to it being unfiltered.

    We ordered quite a but- the Spicy seafood soup, Beef garlic fried rice, eel and uni Sashimi. We ordered a variety of sushi – octopus and we also got a caterpillar roll. I don’t recall everything we got but it was all very good and good cuts with not too much rice.

    I really liked the flavor of the seafood soup. It didn’t have a lot of seafood, some shrimp, fish and imitation crab meat. There was some noodles and cabbage in there too. Loved the way it tasted though. The beef garlic fried rice was also good and flavorful but I wish it had more garlic in there.

    Overall a great Sushi spot.

    The sushi here is delicious and great quality! Our server was very nice and the sushi chef was so incredibly friendly and positive. Also one of the few places I can find Uni (sea urchin roe) actually in stock. Our food took a bit of time to come out but it’s a pandemic and there’s a staffing shortage so that’s completely understandable. The atmosphere is really nice and a bit quirky. I’m definitely going to be a regular customer here.

Consistently delicious and visually appealling, the menu here offers all your favorite tasty options. And the best Dragon Roll ever. Thank you Sumo San!

    We came here for dinner. Despite there being not many other people there besides us, the food took a while to come out. The place itself looks dated and the interior is not much to look at but is sufficient.

    Chef had his nose out and sometimes his mouth too while wearing his mask. Though the sushi itself was actually pretty tasty. Baked one was nice and had a lot of flavor. Sashimi pieces were good as well. A decent choice for a sushi dinner in Richmond.

    If I could cut them a break I would give them a 3.5. But a few things. Price a little high for quality of sushi and amount. Need better chopsticks if you’re gonna charge that. This ain’t no takeout joint. Service was good. Taste of food was between ok and good. Also yall need a soy sauce cup. I’d go back if somebody else was paying.

    I love the atmosphere. The owner has drunk pics all over. And a huge origami display. Great saki bombs. Amazing flavor. Some of the best sushi I have ever had. The rainbow roll and veggie roll is amazing. Service was great. The location is a quick walk to downtown too.

  101. Clayton Russell 2019/10

    The first thing I noticed when I walked in is that this place has a lot of charm. Clocks on the wall telling time from different cities across the world and a sushi bar positioned just the way I prefer it, which is where I sat.

    The edamame was good….I mean, hard to mess that up. Although you would be surprised, I’ve seen (tasted) it.

    Then had Yellowtail 🐠 Sashimi, was very fresh and the chef made an outstanding sauce to dip it in.

    Followed that with a Spicy Tuna 🐟(added crunch) roll. Very standard roll, but was also very good.

    The final piece to my Sushi Fill-Up was the Crouching Tiger roll – highly recommend this one! Shrimp 🍤 tempura, cucumber 🥒 , avocado 🥑 and tuna 🐟 topped a few ‘sweet and spicy sauces’ made for one delicious roll.

    This is the spot for sushi in Downtown Richmond!

    ALWAYS delicious. Stopped in 30 mins before close, and still the freshest sushi I’ve ever experienced in the city. Great service and quick attendance to any of our needs. Again, can’t reiterate enough, DELICIOUS. Beautiful plating as well. Not pictured, but also great are any of the small salads to enjoy and cleanse your palette before you dig in to rolls! VERY fairly priced as well. Sit up at the sushi bar if you can and enjoy (:

    The fish was fresh. It’s not your typical sushi place but more of a neighborhood pub that serves sushi.

  112. Mhd Kron 2019/06

    Sumo San is a great little place in Shockoe bottom. Their sushi was great and the portion was OK. The place is not that big but can accommodate large groups. the staff was friendly and helpful. We went their at happy hour so we had a good discount. The prices are OK for the quality and the portion size. The food came out fast and we ordered sushi so I guess these are made in batches but still fresh nonetheless. Overall must try in RVA.

    Hi nice buffet for lunch

  114. Jantique Fielding 2019/05

    Good sushi. Cean, inviting, cheerful. Not as much variety as I’d like, perhaps, but the “sushi happy hours” on Wednesday and Thursday can’t be beat! 🍣 …

  115. T'Keyah Vaughan 2019/05

    I consider myself a sushi lover. I am in search of the best place in Richmond. Unfortunately, this hasn’t made the cut. It reminded more of cafeteria sushi then upscale cuisine. For the price and taste it definitely isn’t worth it to me.

  116. Elizabeth Prettyman 2019/05

    Good food for decent prices, and really excellent service. I highly reccomend the pot stickers.

  117. CeJae Vtipilson 2019/04

  119. Vivian Purnell 2019/04

    The food was okay but was a step down from what I’m use to. Service was good. Sushi kinda sloppily rolled.

  120. K H 2019/03

    – Had the waiter Drew who was very rude and unprofessional! Wouldnt recommend anyone to come here

  121. Bryan Durnett 2019/03

    Positive experience. Food was really good. Staff even better. Definitely will be back.

  123. Lindsay Rogillio 2019/02

    Hands down, the freshest sushi I’ve ever eaten.

  124. Brian Richard 2019/02

    Some of the best sushi we’ve had in Richmond. We’ve eaten here several times. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed. This is one of our favorite spots of a date-night dinner.

  125. Matt Wild 2019/02

    Love this place

  126. keith tate 2019/02

    Food could use more flavor. Felt more like a bar than a restaurant.

  127. Daniel Urdaneta 2019/02

    Very nice restaurant, food pretty decent, customer service great. I’ll be back to try more sushi and appetizers

    Great food and even better service! Try the spicy kinoko and their Basil entree for a delicious appetizer and dinner.

  132. Steve Chopelas 2019/01

    Great sushi! Stumbled upon this restaurant while in Richmond. If you are ever in the area and like sushi, you have to check it out.

  133. Molly Hyer 2019/01

    Sushi and sashimi are consistently good quality and delicious! Service is quick and theres a good atmosphere of congeniality between the staff and regular customers. Highly recommend!

  134. Bryan Kattler 2018/12

    Always wonderful

  135. Haley Grant 2018/12

    The food is great but while we were there a homeless man came in and the owner/chef yelled at this man in front of everyone to get out. Im not sure what he was asking for, but it seemed so uncalled for to me. It honestly made me want to leave immediately. I doubt we will be back.

  136. Alan Williamson 2018/12

    A real gem for lunch time, sadly under used, as it has always been empty when there. Great tasting food, fast service and good seating.

  137. Michael Campbell 2018/11

    Food was good. I was not a fan of the location, Parking and traffic were horrible. It was a special occasion visit. If it were not in the city I would revisit.

  138. Landon Combs 2018/10

    Awesome spot! Great service and delicious food. Highly recommend!

  143. A. Clarke 2018/10

    Sumo San is a casual Japanese restaurant with a decent amount of vegan options. I usually get the curry dish with the yam and cabbage and was only disappointed once when I got the curry noodle instead.. It was still good but I like the curry dish better. Will be returning.

  144. Jennifer Mangum 2018/09

    Great customer service, fresh food.

    Excellent sushi.. fast and friendly.

  146. Jacob Coots 2018/09

    Everything was awesome. Sushi. Seaweed salad. Saki. Good price. However, DO NOT order the miso soup. It tasted like dirty bath water or something.

  147. Erin Dears 2018/08

    Fantastic food. Love this gem.

  148. Adam Krause (SysTech Computers) 2018/08

    Outstanding food! Great service. Very nice atmosphere.

  149. Scott Z 2018/08

    Came in here with high hopes seeing good ratings. I was very disappointed with the sushi. There was absolutely no seasoning to the rice. Just plain boiled rice. It was actually shocking.

  150. Brittney Liebler 2018/08

    Great food great service!! Hungout with a friend and staff was amazing. The sushi is very good and they definitely care about what they are doing. It definitely shows.

  151. Mikaela Beschler 2018/08

    Awesome restaurant. I came here for my mother’s day dinner with my husband and my 7 month old son. My son spilled my drink all over me and the waiters came as quickly to help me clean up. They also let me breastfeed I the restaurant

  152. Danae B 2018/07

    Fantastic food is an understatement! we suggest dining at the bar and watching the genius at work! Great, quick friendly service from Drew. Will definitely make a trip back to Richmond just to eat a Crouching Tiger roll!!!

  153. joe maciejczyk 2018/07

    Good Alaska roll and chicken curry

  154. Suzanne 2018/07

    This place has the best sushi in the area! Extremely fresh!

  155. Nathaniel Johnson 2018/07

    Went for lunch, had the lunch chicken teriyaki which came with a small salad at $7.95. I couldn’t finish it all, plenty of food and it was very good. Pleasant atmosphere and excellent service.

    Good sushi! Order the portabella tempura spicy tuna appetizer…generous and delicious.

  162. Alison Porpora 2018/05

    This place! The sushi is always amazing, the owner is a super nice dude, and the sushi chef is crazy nice (remembers that I like extra lemon with my ponzu). We are here at least once a week and have been for over a year.

  163. Stephen Paracka 2018/04

    Sumo San is terrific – outstanding sushi, fun staff and cool vibe!

  176. Tiger Johnson 2018/01

    ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE FRO. THE SERVICE TO THE FOOD!!! DO NOT GO HERE! (When someone says they’re allergic to onions and you mess up their first order, if you force them to order a second dish because you wont fix the first one, dont put more onions than rice in it!!!)

  177. D C 2018/01

    While I’d give the food a “D-” that’s the best thing I can say about this place. The property owner seemed rude and offensive. The place was dirty when i went. I was being ask for cash by the army of homeless people that frequent the bottom and not to mention the shooting across the street within the past 5 months…

  178. Nathan Gardner 2017/12

    Love the sushi, great service, nice vibe. Highly recommend.

  182. yousef dash 2017/11

    If you don’t know what to get, be sure to try their deep fried sushi, it’s fairly unique. Crouching tiger is a great option too. Portions fair. Price a little bit expensive.

  190. Bruno Sultanum 2017/07

    Nice Japanese restaurant close to downtown Richmond. Service is great. Food is good, but don’t expect to be amazed.

  191. Lou Lou Benavente (loubli) 2017/07

    Went to their happy hour. It wasn’t full or too busy but the food took a long while to arrive anyhow, and when it did the rice on all the rolls was dry. I had sweet potato, philly, and salmon rolls and none were very good.
    Carytown Sushi isn’t perfect, but their happy hour is a better deal and the sushi is just so much better.
    Staff was nice so there is that!

  192. Steve House 2017/06

    Food is excellent and you have got to order a round of saki Bombs!!!!!!

    Super fresh sushi. Love their avocado tempura. Amazing happy hour wed and thurs 4-7…. 2.50 2 piece sushi and 3.50 cut rolls (and drink specials, too!!!) Wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable to boot.

  201. Ricky Blanco 2016/09

    The sushi is always top notch here. Never had a bad roll. The owner/manager is very welcoming. Sake bombs are a whole production. The price is right for both Shockoe and RVA in general compared to other places. Specialty rolls are cheaper here than anythere!

  202. Nick Morgan 2016/07

    Excellent sushi in the bottom, the stuffed and fried portabello appetizer is not to be missed.

  203. Emmanuel Rosario 2016/06

    Literally sitting at sumo san right now thinking.. I need to review this place in hopes to convince someone else to try their sushi. It is great and our server is very friendly and patient. A must try for anyone nearby or passing through.

  204. sandra zarazua 2016/06

    We come from California to visit the city ..we come in and ordered some rolls, GREAT FOOD, good Service , Nice place

  205. Harrison Villhelm 2016/06

    Good food, really good specials. 3 Stars off for the owner nearly throwing our group out because of something someone did (who wasn’t even in our group it turned out) at a past date. The long story short is, we had a friend who knew these guys who were very disrespectful to the restaurant a few weeks prior. It seemed like the owner wanted some retribution, and so he took it out on several members of our group, when in reality only one person even knew the people who were disrespectful. I think there was a bit of confusion and he perhaps assumed some of the members were there at that time, so he was basically losing his composure, claiming he wanted so badly to refuse service to all of us. Regardless, in the end we apologized for the past actions, and had exceptionally good service from the surrounding staff so we tipped accordingly.

  206. Mathew Wharton 2016/04

    Good sushi with a nice happy hour.

  207. Yong Dunston 2016/04

    Good food and good price.Very friendly services.

  208. Jeana Routh 2016/02

    We were so happy our friend took us here! The food was fantastic, and our server was very nice. We loved the low key atmosphere. I had tonkatsu served with tempura fried asparagus, and my partner had a teriyaki chicken combo with sushi and Miso. Everything was served hot and fresh, and the fried items were light and crispy. We will definitely visit again when we pass through Richmond!

  209. Kathryn Perguson 2015/06

    Great Sushi Rolls! Food good in general. Pleasant staff!!

    A real surprise. The sashimi was excellent.

  212. Shockoe Dentistry 2012/07

    Hot Ju Ju Yaki morning noon and night!! Man that roll is good!

  213. Dennis Little 2008/12

    I find Sumo San to be a really fun atmosphere. They have a very good selection of sushi and sashimi for an ok price. I tend to eat here more for the atmosphere than the food though and have several other Japanese restaurants I prefer far more.

    Sumo San is much, much cleaner than Sticky Rice, but it is not as clean as some of the other sushi places I like better. Seating is usually readily available, which is a welcome change from Sticky Rice.
