The Sumo Sushi & Bento concept restaurants were launched in 2000 by entrepreneurs with a dream of creating the first Japanese casual dining restaurant in the UAE. Rooted in their Japanese and multi-cultural backgrounds, where they grew up surrounded by diverse cultures with rich histories that valued family, food and the bonds made around the dining experience. They fused together their love for family, food, quality time and service to create Sumo Sushi & Bento from the ground up.

Starting with one simple location, Sumo Sushi & Bento has now become an international franchise.
