The Return of SUMO

1947 EATS

‘1947 EATS’ seeks out and brings to you some of the finest eateries across the country. (This one’s dedicated to all our fellow sushi lovers!)

‘Sumo’ originally founded in 1990, Lahore’s first Japanese restaurant now returns re-imagined and re-designed by Koda (Khan Office of Design & Architecture). Expect a unique dining experience; uber-cool, modern and incredibly authentic, complete with classic Japanese comfort food that’ll leave you wanting more.

We went down to check it out, and let’s just say, this place is literally a sushi lover’s dream come true. Today the 1947 team shares its best bits and bites from this truly contemporary Japanese Restaurant.

What we loved:
Spicy Salmon Roll
Spicy Tuna Roll
Salmon Sashimi
Black Cod Miso

Beef Teriyaki
Red Snapper Teppanyaki… Oh and don’t forget to order a side of garlic rice (yum!)
