    Sumosan is one of my favourite sushi restaurants, the Tuna tartar with quail egg and creamy truffle is one of my favourite dishes EVER. This time tho, the service wasn't very good. The waitress apparently was having a bad day, she dropped food in tables and our champagne twice and didn't said sorry, probably cause we were young (22) like her and she didn't wanted to "humiliate" herself. For such an expensive restaurant I truly expect a better service. At the end it turns out she served us the wrong bottle of champagne and we realised only when the bill came to our table. Again, she didn't said sorry. But I would go back since i'm a big fan of the food.

    We absolutely loved the dishes, but they kept checking out our glasses and asking whether we wanted more.. that got a bit annoying. More annoying was when they asked for the table back because they needed to seat a party of 10. There were 4 empty tables on each side of us, so if they knew of another party coming at some point, they should have sat us somewhere else from the start.

    Average at best. Absolutely plain vanilla japanese food that one can find at Itsu or any cheap lower end sushi chain. Not worth a visit but a compliment to the staff at least, they were the only highlight.

    A spur of the moment dinner on a Sunday night resulted in us finding Sumosan as the closest Japanese restaurant open near Victoria. We were greeted efficiently on arrival and seated immediately. Wait staff were attentive without being intrusive and the sushi was incredible. The offer of a sommelier was provided for my wine choice which was a nice touch and indicative of the level of restaurant. Mains were very good but not outstanding. Scallops were slightly rubbery but the soft-shell crab was good. We'd definitely dine here again, but skip everything else in favour of sushi or sashimi.

    I had better quality of food, presentation and taste-wise, at other similar restaurants in London. We had ordered a couple of set lunch and did not feel excited with the look of it, unlike at the other restauarants that we had tried during our trips last year and the current one. My experience was based only on the set lunch.

    The food overall is good. Lobster salad and J special Salmon sashimi is really good. However, the sushi rolls are average or a bit below average. The appetizers were way better than the sushi. Black cod is really good too.

    Sumosan is possibly one of the best sushi restauranta in London. But what makes this an ideal spot for couples and group dinners is probably the dessert! Unique in taste and presentation Sumosan is a must for japanese cuisine lovers! I have yet to receive a negative comment from somebody that has dined here. Spectacular yet again! It never lets me down!

    The food was very good, but service not up to earlier experiences. Between the first and second course there was quite some time elapsed which was surprising as the restaurant was not full. More disturbing, couple of lovers sitting on the bench (where usually on person sits) next to us, doing what lovers do, should not be tolerated in this type of restaurant. The staff did not intervene. The clients cannot intervene.

    The evening started well with superb choice of cocktails and excellent starters. However, the main courses were poorly cooked (dry fish, overcooked vegetables) The waitress clearly noticed we were unhappy with the quality, but refraimed from asking whether we enjoyed the mail as the plates were cleared. When we complained about the food quality whilst paying the waitress admitted it was not as good as comparable restaurants who charge much less. Whilst leaving the army of front of restaurant staff offered no apology when they asked us how our evening was to which we replied "diappointing" Maybe it was just the courses we ordered, but for the prices charged do not warrant the price tag

    The worst place I've ever been. First time I feel like I waste my money. Service - there is no one. The table near the cash desk - very interesting solution for beach cafe^ but not for restaurant in London's centre.Main course was before sashimi, sticks must be changed after each plates and so so ... But sashimi were nice and wine list not so bad like all other issues.

    The food was great - very pricey but worth it as it's delicious. However at that price, you expect decent service, and the service we had did not match the price. Surprising as it's been fine before. Just a few reasons in particular: - waiter spilled a lot of the Sake on the table while he tried to pour it. Without saying anything he cam back to wipe it down and we asked if we could have some more to make up for it (it was about a wineglass full). He then forgot and we had to ask our regular waitress. Bit sloppy for a top restaurant. - we asked our waitress twice and another once for another serving of rice. It never came in the end. + point - they agreed to change in some eel for one of the others in the sashimi set.

    I have been coming to Sumosan for ten years and the food is beautiful. If you love sushi the regular sushi set is great but we tend to also go for the T&T (tuna truffle mmmmm) and some extra bits! The wasabi prawns are lovely also! Excellent choice of sake too! Will be back!

    Lovely dinner as ever, but spoiled a little by the slow service and loudish music. Perhaps I am just too old but I had a hard time hearing my dinner companions. On the plus side, the fish is always superb and for the first time I had the dark and white chocolate fondant which was absolutely amazing! Will miss Sumosan when I am away but will be back as soon as I can!

    Dined on 25/7/2013
    I cannot fault the food or the service in this excellent Japanese eatery. However it did feel a little lacking in atmosphere. We went with my adult children to celebrate my son's birthday. We were a little early but seated immediately. There was no evidence of the opportunity to spend time in a bar area - although the bar below ground was discovered later. Food was really excelllent but portions are not large. Overall it was somewhat pricy £250 for 5 people, with a couple of cocktails but no wine, but all in all I suppose that you get what you pay for - and the food is excellent!

    Worst meal for a long time. Sat down at 19:30, ordered bottle of sake, some sashimi and sushi, two bowls of noodle soup. not complicated ? wrong! nothing came to our table 25min apart from water. Table next to us had 3 generations of Arabs, they sat down 10 minutes after us and got food piled onto the table. eh? how does that work? eventually I threatened to leave and food appeared within the last 30 seconds of my 5 minute ultimatum. food itself is OK just the service is so slow and off-putting. when we said we'll leave, the waiter said "OK" - shows you how much he cares. Don't go.

    The restaurant was very busy but the decor reminded me of a business hotel lobby. It was dark and divided into two sections which killed the atmosphere. Food was ok - but the menu was complicated and unclear and there was another smaller menu inside which we didn't understand and wasn't clearly explained. Key ingrediants in the sushi was left off the description and we had to send some food back with lots of bones in it and a hair. One or two of the appetisers were really really good. The staff were what saved this from being a total disaster! They were attentive, courteous and helpful.

As for the food, can't say that I was disappointed; all dishes were quite yummy (not mind-blowing...) although I thought the sushi could've been better. Try the tuna/truffle combo dishes - will not disappoint - as well as the black cod. Thanks Sumosan!
