For many years, Bay View was a sushi desert. But that’s no longer true thanks to Hungry Sumo, which brought a great sushi program, plus a wealth of Thai dishes to the table. Even better, they serve it all up with friendly, attentive service.

Guests can choose from more classic maki, temaki, nigiri or sashimi (yes, it’s fresh!). Stick to the classics or dive into modern takes like the La Fiesta maki featuring yellowtail, cucumber, cilantro, jalapeno, lime and chili oil topped with tuna, mango, avocado and black tobiko.

Not a sushi fan? There’s plenty more to love from beautifully scented Thai curries (try the panang) and noodle dishes to teriyaki bowls, poké and well-executed ramen.

Recommended: Pork buns, ramen, sashimi and nigiri
