Yumo’s Restaurant suddenly closed it’s Asian fusion restaurant after less than five years next to the new Home Depot on North Belair. Originally, the restaurant was called “Angel Island Bistro” — briefly closed — and then re-opened under similar management as Yumo’s. They boasted sushi, hibachi Japanese, Thai food, Chinese food, and more.
Some were surprised that Yumo did not remain open through the holiday season since BIG LOTS recently opened in the former Food Lion building next to Yumo’s.
The buzz team researched some random reviews from YELP and discovered some serious service and food quality issues that may shed light on the lack of business at Yumo’s.
Random Restaurant Reviews from Yelp:
*The food is pretty bad. My group ordered beef w/ broccoli, basil chicken, and their “pha thai.” The beef was not at all tender and really rubbery, the chicken smelled like vomit (legitimately), and the pha thai literally tasted like noodles and ketchup. To top it off, the soup was lukewarm and the wonton they served with it was stale. All in all, it was a downright TERRIBLE meal. Even for the price, I don’t think I’ll be coming back here.
*My prediction is that this place won’t be open in a year. I went in on a Sunday afternoon after church and there were literally 4 other people in the restaurant. The location is absolutely horrible (there is no way you’d see this place if you were driving by) and the food certainly isn’t going to bring people back.
*Food ok, though service was horrendous. Each meal was brought out desperately and I mean by 20-30 minutes. Drinks sat empty and up there with some if the worst service I have experienced. I never even got my food but they promptly gave us the check…
*Sashimi was very fresh, sushi rolls were delicious, and my group all raved about their cooked entrées (mango duck, peking duck, general tso). Will definitely become a regular here.
*Overpriced, LONG wait times, fishy poor quality sushi.
*I arrived about 15 min earlier than my wife so I could order our toddler food and our drinks. Nothing had come out by the time she arrived even though there were only 2 or 3 other tables full at 5:30 on a Wednesday. After another 10 minutes I got up and found a lady who dissapeared for a few minutes before reappearing with our drinks.
*The sushi, appetizer, toddlers food and our main course all came out at the same time ….. 1 hour later. My wife had to take our screaming toddler home while I waited on them to box everything up.
*I asked the hostess to be sure wasabi, soy and chopsticks are all in the bags. After getting home with warm sushi and cold sesame chicken our tepid $75 take out had no wasabi, ginger, soy or chop sticks.
*I ended up eating about three of 4 pieces and chucking the rest because of the fishy taste.
*They have the same cheap plastic treys you get your sushi on at Kroger except Kroger’s looks better, taste better and is 1/10 the price. I wish I would have taken a pic before I threw it all away so I could share. Someone needs to upload one but I will not be going back to snap it.
*If you want sushi or your food the same day you order it don’t go here.
*We loved the sushi and the service was great. I definitely recommend
