The Spectacular Show Brings You In……

But It’s The Food That Brings You Back!

“No matter how many times you see the show, the teppanyaki chefs are always adding a new and exciting skill to entertain our captivated diners,” says owner, David Sumo Meltzer. Located on IH 10 in San Antonio, Sumo delivers a memorable evening with knife juggling, an onion volcano that shoots out flames high into the air, flying shrimp and Hibachi chefs showing off their fire blazing skills. There’s even a fire breathing dragon made from fruits and vegetables! Each chef has their own set of skills that they use to enthrall guests and bring the meal alive. But there is a common feature, and that is the great ball of fire that begins the preparation of each meal as the grill is cleaned.

The highly skilled chefs also strive to connect with diners gathered around their table to make the dining experience more personal and memorable. They realize that many of their guests are celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or graduation, or whatever you want to celebrate. Even if you’re not celebrating anything special, you’ll find dining at Sumo an exciting evening for the entire family that creates lasting memories. Don’t want the full table-side performance? No problem. You can sit at the Hibachi bar and still be served any of the dishes on the menu.

At Sumo customer satisfaction is their top priority. So much so that the mouth watering, melt in your mouth, Akaushi Kobeashi beef, is locally sourced from HeartBrand Ranch, located near College Station.

The quality of the show is surpassed only by the quality of the food.

David Sumo spent years training under the guidance of Hiroaki “Rocky” Aoki, the original founder of Benihana.

There is so much to choose from on the menu. Chateaubriand, an extremely tender cut of beef, New York Strip, or a lobster tail are customer favorites. The lengthy menu offers plenty of pairing ideas. It might be a combination plate of chicken, shrimp and steak, or a bowl of udon noodles. The Tokyo seared tuna and Terriyaki salmon are also best sellers. There are also gluten free dining options such as soba noodles which more and more diners really appreciate.

David Sumo feels that every customer should be treated like a celebrity, even if you’re not former San Antonio Spurs player, Tony Parker, who often frequents the restaurant. “Every diner is special to us. We want them all to feel like family,” says Sumo Meltzer.
