About Sumo Experience

Our background

Sumo Japanese Steakhouse came to Manaport Plaza in Manassas and opened its door for diners who have been enjoyed hibachi-grill dining and sushi and for those who are new to Japanese cuisine. Chefs of Sumo have more than 15 years of teppanyaki and sushi experience. With their knowledge of Japanese steakhouse tradition and passion for Japanese cuisine, Sumo has aimed to offer top-quality steak and seafood on hibachi grills, freshest and delicious sushi dishes, and authentic and healthy Japanese cuisine to diners in the area, ever since the first day of opening its door.

Our focus

At Sumo, we have been always focusing on using only the freshest and top-quality ingredients to bring the most delicious meal to our guests. Diners can easily tell the high quality and generous portion of their choice of hibachi meal of seafood, steak, and chicken, as chefs grill them right before eyes of our guests. We believe the quality of ingredients that we order from food vendors can never be compromised for our delicious hibachi meal. From lobster, scallop, shrimps, salmon, to filet mignon and steak, we only order the premium choice and offer them in generous portion on the grills. Our steak is tender and seafood is juicy for this reason.

One thing that cannot be overlooked on the hibachi grill is the special steak and seafood sauces that are unique to only Japanese steakhouses. These special sauces not only enhance the flavor of hibachi meals, but also make Japanese steakhouses incomparable to other styles of steakhouses. At Sumo, the ginger sauce for steak and yum-yum sauce for seafood are made in house by our experienced chefs. These sauces are exclusive to Sumo and never too sweet or too salty. This originality, including our house-made sesame salad dressing and miso soup, is part of the reason we make the dining experience here so unique.

To offer the most delicious sushi dishes, we have made it our clear goal to use the only freshest fish and seafood from our vendors. Our sushi menu is made up of extensive list of fish, seafood, and Chesapeake crab meat. With vendors’ deliveries made as frequently as twice or three times a week, the freshness of ingredients has made our traditional sushi menu and modern special rolls menu so delicious on the looks and in the mouths.

Japanese cuisine has long been noted for its healthy diet and rich flavor. We bring the authentic Japanese cuisine to our diners with the retained health benefit and same flavor. Whether you’re coming to grab a healthy bento box or try some fresh tastes of Japan, come on in to try something new and fresh.

Who to bring to sumo

Our restaurant was constructed with new hibachi grill tops, new wood table tops, and clean decoration with a theme of Japanese traditional wrestler (our name “Sumo”). We offer fine dining in a casual and relaxed environment. The unique cooking performance on hibachi grills has always been a great fun for family, groups of friends, and anyone who wants something different from the same old steak and seafood brought out from kitchen. Fun starts on our grills as kids enjoy the flaming fire and chefs’ performance. Everyone appreciates how fresh the hibachi meal is as it is literally fresh “right out of grill”.

You can join the entertainment on our grill, or if you prefer, try something made specifically to your order from our sushi bar or enjoy a little privacy on our dining tables. Guests have been coming to Sumo for any special events such as birthday, anniversary, dates, and parties, or whenever you are hungry for something fresh and new from your tradition ideal of dining experience.
