Oh I had a bad stay here. I went with my family to have dinner. The servers aren't professionals, if they spill your drink or a sushi roll over to the ground because they're clumsy, they won't give you a new set when it's really their fault. The girl didn't even say sorry, didn't even bother picking up the wasted sushi, she just left. So rude and oh, the sushi I ordered was missing one piece now and still they will charge me with a whole price? Like you should get me a new whole set what on earth? My friend only held me to not complain right there and hold my patience but that's enough when it happened to my cousin again, he told me the service here was bad, the server accidentally spilled his drink so it's kind of 1/3 lesser of the glass.. and gosh they just put the drink on his table and that's it. Cleaned the floor and no apologies. What is wrong with the servers? This isn't like Sumosam Makati, it's so weird that this is the only branch with meh service.

Consistently been getting poor service from this place. Had the first 1 in Greenbelt and now in Gateway. Servers were not polite and keeps on forgetting our request. Too bad, cause the food was great especially the Nabeyaki Udon and the Spicy Caravan sushi.

It's been a while since I was at Sumosam so I was pleasantly surprised to see that they've revamped their menu! Everything we ordered - the crunchy tuna roll, agedashi tofu, tonkatsu ramen, and sashimi - everything was good! That, plus the very pleasant service = 5 stars!

Before watching my favorite team play at Araneta need to feed my tummy so I have energy to cheer 128513 Sumo Sam boasts an extensive menu From sushi to tempura etc. even Japanese-style burgers, crunchy roll, there’s something delicious and tasty for everyone in the family to enjoy.

I ordered dynamite roll, I really liked the fact that it was delicious outside and inside the rolls; however, taste-wise, it wasn’t that special anymore it was no longer spicy. 128532

I was able to try the green iced tea which is bottomless. Too bad, it was tooooooo sweet.128548 they hate sugar 128540 Reduce the sugar, please!!! Drinking too much will turn you to diabetic in no time!

Price wise, it is reasonable and the staff are courteous, and for a change, they did not shout greetings in Japanese! I was surprised 128516

My experience was good and I recommend the place with one condition: avoid the iced tea! 128522

Great food, ambiance and friendly crew. Although they didn't have their own restroom. Such a hassle to go up and down just to pee or wash hands 128542

in looooooove with assorted sushi and beef tonkatsu ramen. There are 3 choices of soup for their ramen.. shoyu, shio and miso. Shoyu is a bit sweet which I chose for my order, shio is just a clear soup and miso is sour. So which one is your taste? Your choice :)

Finally got to eat here! After St Jude, nomnom muna 9786127857127843

My usual Thursdate, Kat, agreed since she also likes to turn Japanese 128516 (i hope someone gets the reference. I feel so old! Lol)

I got the cheese fried maki and spicy tuna salad. Kat got the katsudon. We both got the bottomless red berry iced tea. Initially, ung maki lng tlga inorder ko because we were waiting for another friend. I thought maliit lng ung salad. It's actually good for 2-3 people. Same goes for the maki - which was really good! 128077128077128077 it's very salty, so be warned.

The spicy tuna salad was just that - spiceh! I wanted to try it and compare with Teriyaki Boy's. Almost the same, except mas fresh sa SumoSam's.

Mejo slow lng ung service. If you're in a hurry, don't go there.

Sidebar: a male customer got mad at one of the waiters because the waiter failed to inform the guy that he had to pay to use the lavatory. Sinigawan tlga sya! I felt bad for the waiter, but at the same time, tama din kse si Mr. Mad Man. That's what's called failure to divulge pertinent and useful info - i worked sa customer service sa States and they're sooooooooooooooo waaaaaaayyyyy ahead of us in terms of excellence.

Could have given this place 4 stars but the service is really poor, or lack thereof. I have to agree with most of the people that left their reviews on here...

Service is so slow. Even tonight, at almost 1 hr before closing time... No one in the restaurant but my friends and I. We still had to keep getting the server's attention.

I do Love their dynamite roll. Must try. Other than that the food "so-so". It'll satisfy your craving for Japanese food if you're hungry.

Unlimited RedBerry Ice Tea. Also really good :)

is it just me giving 5 stars here? 128513

i like what i ordered i guess. i'm inlove with curry i don't even know why. i ordered beef curry and i like it! (i kissed a girl tune)127926127926127926 hahaha. 128514 compared to tokyo cafe which was my worst beef curry experience.

the manager or owner, i don't know which, assist us. she was nice and attentive. we ordered bottomless and the waiter refills or drink quickly. i read some part of the review before me. i don't know why we have different experience. 9996

This critic has tried eating SumoSam at Gateway and Eastwood and both were just a horrendous experience. Before the Killers concert I decided to try some Japanese food hence the only one nearby was at SumoSam Gateway. The staff were rude and nobody ushered us inside as well. Iy seems the staff were just talking to each other or just cleaning tables. Food really took long and nobody even bothered to replenish our water. Even onthe faces of the people eating , not one positive facial expression from the food ordered was shown. In the case of their Eastwood eatjng out withmy former officemates/friends some orders were not available and eventook long. Prices of the dishes does not even match the taste let alone the service provided. One of the lessons of eating at such a popular resto, never to repeat again. There are other better Japanese restaurants with excellent customer service and affordable prices. Just because the place looks extravagant doesn't mean the food and service is amazing. They say lightning doesn't strike twice, unfortunately it did with this particular resto.

Atrocious Service. We were one of their first dinner customers to order sushi and we waited for nearly 45 minutes only to be told that they never booked our orders!
Will never ever eat again in this restaurant.
