The LATE NIGHT menu starts at 9:30PM. The menu prices look much better, and cocktail drinks are 20% OFF.

OK! Nice presentation. Thin cuts of meat. Cook to your liking. Use the sauces for flavour. Beef short, Beef tongue, and sirloin are good/tastes beefy! Karaage is good. Gyoza good but not crispy.
OK! Limited Dining time. They prioritize reservations over walk-ins even if you are first in line. They prefer big groups over small parties. The server will suggest the wagyu platters. Lots of servers hovering around, but seems rushed to order, cook, eat and get out of restaurant fast.
Overall, SLIGHTLY SATISFIED. Sumo Grill is nice for small bites and drinks. If you like beef, Sumo Grill has a variety of beef cuts. While beef is a big part of the menu, there are other Asian inspired dishes. For best value try the 9:30PM Late Night menu.
RICE IS EXTRA
