My hubby is a Japanese food enthusiast, he loves sushi, sashimi and tempura so much. We’ve been scouting for a decent yet affordable Japanese Restaurant in Abu Dhabi City but we can’t find any. There’s a lot though located inside the hotel but the price is too steep.
Thanks to my sister she introduced to us Sumo Sushi & Bento . This Japanese restaurant is located inside Masdar City, 25 minutes drive from Abu Dhabi City. A little far I know but I’ll tell you It’s all worth. It’s also accessible through public bus number 161 or 163 (from Abu Dhabi main bus station).
Going to the restaurant is a bit tricky and exciting at the same time, before you reach there you need to ride in Personal Rapid Transit, a driverless car powered by rechargeable batteries and runned by magnets planted on the ground. My hubby and I were very delighted, it was a nice experience and what I liked more is it’s Free.

Me, enjoying the ride
After more or less 5 minutes ride, we reached our destination, Sumo sushi is located inside Masdar Institute of Science & Technology Campus. The restaurant was manned by mostly Filipinos, yehey!
My hubby, patiently waiting for his order
My hubby ordered Nigiri Maki Bento, Salmon, white fish, tuna nigiri, tuna and cucumber maki, california roll served with a garden salad. 56 AED
Nigiri Maki Bento
While me opt for Philli Maki, smoked salmon and cream cheese. 28 AED and Ebi Tempura. 24 AED
I’m not a Japanese lover like my hubby, not a fan of raw food, but my food taste awesome. I like the blend of salmon and cream cheese… yummy!
So for Japanese lovers out there, go and try Sumo Sushi and Restaurant.
