Diner Reviews
  • "Six of us dined here before seeing the Cirque de Soleil Michael Jackson "ONE" show. We did the tasting menu and drinks. It was great. "

  • "Hands down THE BEST meal of our lives. Excellent service and top notch quality made this experience 5 star! They provided a chefs tasting menu that showed off the best of the best at Kumi. The fish was amazingly fresh and delicious. Your glasses never got empty. The wait staff made you feel like you were their only priority. Best of the best!"

  • "The pro's of Kumi - the space is lovely, and the menu sounds interesting (rock shrimp is divine). But oh my gosh, if you come here for sushi, be forewarned; it is insanely expensive for insanely average fish. We had hamachi and sake sashimi - $6 per piece - and there were VERY small pieces of painfully average fish. I do better at hole in the walls for $2 a piece. The Seoul Garden roll, all vegetarian, was AWFUL. And our service was friendly but slow. All in all, not a horrible experience, but not worth half of what we paid."

  • "We tried Kumi after a recommendation from a friend, and it was really awesome. The food is spectacular and the service was very friendly and helpful. I am not an expert on sushi, and our waiter was more than happy to help us pick the perfect menu. He explained the different choices and asked our preferences, ie spicy, etc. It was superb and every dish he brought was better than the previous and they were all fabulous! There are so many great places to dine in Vegas, but when I visit again I will definitely go back to Kumi."

  • "Our Asian foodie friend loved this place. Much better for dinner than it was for lunch. Portions are on the small side. You may have to order more dishes than anticipated but it's a great way to enjoy lots of variety at a restaurant with a very good restaurant."

  • "We ordered appetizers, which came quickly. It took a while till we finally were able to order our main courses since we couldn't find our 1st server, so another one came - by the end of dinner, we had 2-3 servers, so it was very confusing. The main courses came on different times for each of us - mine, I finally had to ask where it was, as the rest of the people in my party was halfway through their dinner and I was still there waiting for it; and on top of that one of us ordered a saba sashimi, and they sent out salmon - since we are foodies from NYC, we knew the mistake. All in all, the food was ok - definitely had better for the prices. The service was disappointing for such an expensive restaurant. I would not go back to this place."

  • "Sometimes when you order a "special" drink from a restaurant you worry it was a bad choice by the bartender….However Kumi's drinks were AMAZING!! Delicious! And the food was to die for. I would definitely return in the future! Great ambiance too!"

  • "Hostess made us stand at door for 15 mins while tables were wide open for a 6pm reservation ....manager and other employees walked by us without ever asking...finally we asked what was going on?....the prices are exorbitant for what you get.....our local sushi restaurant food is better at 1/3 of the cost.....only 4 very mediocre desserts on menu... Service was attentive and friendly"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Food was awesome. Service for the most part okay. The bus staff removed my drink before I was able to finish. But got a pleasant 'bump' to compensate, but it did take a while for the waiter to ask if I would like another cocktail. Asked for a booth on arriving. The said there was not one available. Two booths were just being seated when we left. It appeared that the couple behind us, no reservation, received a booth. We may go again, but it wouldn't be my first choice."

  • "Had dinner there with co-workers after working a tradeshow at Mandalay Bay. Food quality and presentation were very good, portions were small considering the prices. Service was very good, attentive, informed but not overbearing. Ambiance was nice if not a bit stark, noise level was ok, we were able to carry on conversations without too much trouble but it was early so the place wasn't full. If it were, I suspect it would be a different story. Overall, a nice meal but typical Vegas pricing., ie. high for what you get."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "This was a new restaurant to us - we love Japanese food so we were eager to try it. The food is delicious - probably the best vegetable tempura we've had anywhere. The service is very nice - only problem is that at times there are gaps in time, especially at the end of the meal, when servers could come by more often. Highly recommend."

  • "The back dining room is just beautiful and the entire wait staff was superb. All the food was fabulous! We tried quite a few different types of sushi. You have to try the sushi roll that has watermelon pop rocks mixed within. We will be back."

  • "The menu has a fine selection of dishes and the waiter was helpful with explanations of the ingredients and how the dish was prepared."

  • "The protein roll rocks! And so does the rest of the menu. Crispy Rice was so great and so was the Hot Mess...loved it all"

  • "Food was amazing. Service was outstanding. It was so loud in the restaurant, from people trying to talk over one another. The loud zombie techno music was completely awful and extremely loud."

  • "Excelente food, very good service. However, too noisy and very small portions of food."

  • "Somewhat new restaurant inside of Mandalay Bay - our first time there and we will be back. *Excellent* food - service was very polite and nice but a bit slow."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The sushi here was very good but very expensive. We had a couple of hours to wait for a show and wanted to talk, drink our wine and enjoy the ambiance. There were three or four tables that were empty but our server kept coming over to ask us if we wanted more or if we were done."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The valentine's prix fixe was excellent. All the food on the item were delicious. The portion was a bit small for 2 to share. The service was terrible. We didn't receive water/drinks until our second course and it was the busser that had to get our drinks. The waitress only came by 3 times the whole entire time. Food came out quick but everything else was slow. I would not go back just because service was bad. Too bad the food was really good."

  • "Had way too much sushi but when the food is that good, what can you do!!! Service was 5 stars!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Enjoyed a wonderful 5-course meal for 2 on Valentine's Day. The service was excellent. The staff was so nice and very attentive. The sushi was excellent. And the surf and turf course probably provided us with some of the best steak we have ever eaten. The oysters and lobster were also fantastic. The experience was worth the money."

  • "All of our food was outstanding. The shrimp tempura with siracha dressing was our favorite. The cocktails were also amazing!"

  • "Our food was delayed. Entrees arrived at different times. 6 in our group. 2 people didn't get their main course until everyone else was finished with theirs. The sushi rolls were very small and not great. I've had better sushi at local spots for half the 0rice. Poor service."

  • "Ed our wait person made it a perfect meal - he timed everything perfectly -"
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "The food was great. We did a tasting for $65 a person. There was 6 in our group but majority of the plates brought out were 5 pieces. You would think that if you paid for a tasting everyone would get a piece of each dish. Music was too loud but the food was yummy. My favorite was the app yellowtail sashimi in a soy sauce with Serrano peppers."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "This place has amazing food. The pop rockin roll was amazing. I highly recommend coming here if you like FRESH sushi and a cool atmosphere. I will definitely be back."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "Great food, would recommend for smaller groups due to noise level! Service was "ok" but not as attentive as I thought a higher end restaurant would be - had to ask several times for water and drinks to be refilled vs. server asking what else we needed. Busy saturday night but probably better for smaller group as our party was table of 8"

  • "went here with a work group of 17 people with varying international backgrounds. to make things easy, we decided to just get a few bottles of wine and ordered dinner "omakase", meaning leaving it to the chef to decide on the dishes to provide us. we gave them a budget to work within and off they went. the food was consistently great: fresh & tasty fish, perfectly cooked meats, fresh veggies, and delicious desserts. we were all extremely pleased with the quality of the food and felt like we had good value for our money. we would definitely go back again."

  • "Good food, attentive staff, reasonable pricing. Restaurant is in the back of the casino with no particular view. The "Hot Mess" was tasty. The eggplant was also good."

  • "We had an early business dinner here during CES. Went with special (chef's choice) recommended by waitress. Service was fast and efficient, all food was great except the chicken which was a bit dry. Sushi was very good, nothing I haven't had before for those that care about that sort of thing."
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "I liked this restaurant. Service is awesome, food is good, decoration is great. But it is a little bite noisy so it is hard to talk with the other people around the table, or communicate with the waiter."
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "Yes, Las Vegas town of top chef or iron chef and some rusty already which was the case for this restaurant which menu did not impress. Presentation like the ALBACORE seems like a monster cave completely covered by a predictable sauce overpowering such delicate fruit d mere. Then the PROTEIN roll (rice-less) I expected something with texture and tartness. The restaurant was a disappointment for a person who's tried multiple sushi places all over the world. I don't think it deserves those ratings or the huge overrated reputation. The food was too expensive for what it really was!"
