SUMO by Nambara

Wichita is known for some great eating establishments. In fact, we have several good sushi restaurants in the city. Sumo is one of the best in Wichita, the atmosphere and décor is good. Conveniently located near E. 13th Street and Greenwich, its trendy vibe is perfect for young professionals. After a long day of work, there’s nothing better than some Sake, wine, or one of the many mixed drinks. The bartenders know how to mix a good drink and are friendly. You can watch sports at the bar or meet new people waiting for your delicious drink.

The hibachi-style grill is entertaining, whether you bring a date or the entire family. The sushi list is extensive, and it is all very good. The Poke-Tini is great, and the California Roll is good sushi for beginners. And for the main course, get ready for the variety of entrees. Everything on the menu is good! The Teriyaki chicken and Sesame chicken are excellent. The Volcano chicken is quite spicy but very good. If you are still wondering if Sumo is right for you, just remember the chefs at the hibachi grill. They make dining out an exciting and memorable event.

Unfortunately, you cannot make reservations, but you can call ahead for first available seating.Wait time is comparable to most restaurants. Parking is an issue, so be prepared to arrive earlier on the weekend. Overall, the food is great and the atmosphere is fun. I recommend it to all of my friends.
