Fine, good quality Asian food, and highly convenient to the Downtown Area.

The Menu is extensive, and ranges over choices which are Chinese, Japanese and
Korean.

Comfortable and warm in its décor, the small "vest pocket" 5 seat Sushi bar is an
excellent perch from which to watch Susan or Mindi (hence, "Sumin's") expertly
prepare their food.

Long on the "fusion" types of specialties .. but also "solid" on the basic and classic
more "purist" dishes.

Excellent Tempura combinations and, at the "other end" of the meal, a very fine and
freshly prepared "Tamago-Yaki" omelette ... done by the patriarch, Mr. Ko, himself.

Good combinations and daily specials, priced affordably at $ 10.95. Much coming and going from repeat local customers, with a great deal of "take out" making its way out.

The house Sake is "Ozeki" ... as opposed to "Gekkikan" ... and this, to me, spoke a
great deal. Although domestic, this was the house Sake at the gorgeous "Thousand
Cranes" Restaurant, located on the third and terrace floor of the former Hotel Intercontinental in the heart of Japan Town in central Los Angeles. Than which
there was no finer.

There are some small complaints ... one should not be charged for a mug of green tea,
nor $ 6.00 for a bowl of steamed and salted Edamame ... these items are customarily
gratis, and are simply provided to the customers automatically in the greater number of
Japanese restaurants. Also, the complimentary vinegared "Sunomono" is simply roughly chopped cucumber, with rice vinegar poured over it. But these are minor
things.

In the main, very good. Highly recommended.

It's good sushi, especially if you're not a huge fan of sushi or want to have other types of dishes available.

This place was great. Very small but excellent food. My husband ordered from the Chinese menu, I had sushi, tekka maki and a tuna hand roll, miso soup, and vegetable tempura. All very good and reasonably priced.

We recently made our second attempt to eat at Sumin's. The first try, nearly two years ago, led to our walking out after 20 minutes of being completely ignored while sitting next to a family that smelled like they lived in a chicken coop. You can see why we waited so long to return, right? But hey, when there are this few places in town to eat ...

Well, the experience we had couldn't have been a bigger improvement. Our server was great -- polite, attentive, and engaged.

The sign in the window says "Chinese" and "Korean" ... but there's not much Korean to be found here. But on what our server called the "secret menu," the Bimimbab was almost as good as our favorite at Kim's BBQ in Nanaimo, BC. The hot pot seared the rice and fixings to a perfect golden crunciness. The thick chili sauce was earthy and just spicy enough. All the ingredients were fresh and tasty. At $13.95 including soup or salad, and with a Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale for $3.50, this place is definitely being added to our local dinner rotation. Which has lately gotten down to just two places. And one of those is slipping again.

Great fast service! Little hole in the wall place that serves korean, chinese and japanese food. Food selections are not limited to the menu. There are little picture cards on the table that show other food options. Be sure to view it too.
