Shoji Sushi replaces Sushi Tomo in downtown Palo Alto

Uploaded: Nov 4, 2015
Sushi Tomo on University Avenue in Palo Alto shuttered recently and was quickly replaced by a new sushi restaurant, Shoji Sushi.

Not much seems to have changed at 201 University Ave. besides the ownership and some interior revamping. Shoji Sushi officially opened for business on Tuesday, Oct. 27.


Shoji Sushi recently opened at 201 University Ave. in downtown Palo Alto.

The new owner, Zitao Zheng, did not respond to request for comment. He is the former manager of Niji Sushi in Mountain View.

A second Sushi Tomo location at 4131 El Camino Way in Palo Alto remains open. Both locations opened in 2006.

Another downtown sushi restaurant, O Sushi, closed in April with the following handwritten message appearing on a sign in the front window: "Thank you for coming to O Sushi House for last four years. We are moving back to Sushi Tomo (201 University Ave.) for better management." Sushi Tomo employees said at the time that there was a new owner at O Sushi, but declined to comment further.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
