New restaurant at Mandalay Bay
I travel to Vegas and stay at Mandalay Bay 2-4 times a year. I was lucky enough to be there on opening night of this restaurant. Everything was very good. The Hot Mess and Kumikaze rolls were very good!! Service was attentive but sporadic. I would chalk that up to opening night!

Food came out extremely quickly
Food came out extremely quickly and we felt rushed. In and out in 45 minutes was not great but I was with my kids so they were happy to eat quickly. I think the pacing should have even slower - it was like they had food waiting and as soon as it was ordered another guy came right out and put the food on the table immediately

Tasty food and awesome service!
Ate here for the first time, as we were taking our 2 children to a concert in the Events Center. We are Japanese food lovers, so we were always hoping for the best.
The service was impeccable and the food came out plated elegantly and quick, too! Everything tasted wonderful and we will definitely be eating here again!

Hands down best Sushi in Vegas. I love Nobu and Shebuya but Kumi is my new go to.

Expectations were High based
Expectations were High based on past experiences at Yellow Tail - Kumi did not disappoint! It also is NOT Yellow Tail which is great. The menu is original with new sauces and item. Great Service as well.

Food was very good and fast (ordered drinks before food and got food first...!), service was knowledgeable and polite, manager Christian provided friendly and accomodating service. A job well done by Light group and Chef Back.

Great Food and Service
We had the amazing egg plant appetizer and sushi. Both very good and the service was very good.

If you love sushi
Many interesting selections. The 4 of us tried ten different selections on the menu. All fresh all good all interesting. I live in NYC so I am not easy to please. This is place I would return to. My only irritation was the selection of music and the noise level. But....it's las vegas so I guess it goest with the territory.

Fab Sushi Bar in Mandalay Bay
We ate here on Saturday night before the Odd Ball Comedy Festival. It is located right near the Mandalay Bay event center so perfect for dinner before an event. The meal was wonderful. The fish was super fresh and the rice on the rolls was the best I've had since returning from Japan. The service was top-notch and the manager checked in with us several times. She wanted us to try a particular desert and we opted for a different one, but she brought us both and comped the one she recommended. Highly recommend the Pop Rocks Roll and highly recommend Kumi!

The food was amazing. Sometimes
The food was amazing. Sometimes it was difficult to locate the waiter.

The pork belly sushi was amazing.
The pork belly sushi was amazing. Sat at the sushi bar so had the pleasure of watching them make the food. Chefs talk to you and take your order. Service from the waitress was ok. Cool atmosphere

Great sushi at Mandalay bay

Pricey...but worth it
Crispy Rice and Pop Rockin' were truly exceptional!!!
Relaxed ambiance around the corner from casino, makes for nice dining ambience
At par with NOBU

Went here since it was new and by the same chef that owns the best rated sushi restaurant on the strip. Prices were a bit outrageous, but the food and drinks were very creative and tasty. I ordered the pork belly roll, which was great with a little crispiness from the pork inside and a sweet type of slaw on top. The miso black cod was also fantastic! Plenty of creative and tasty cocktails too. It felt very busy as servers raced around in a bit of chaos, but we all food and drink in a very timely fashion. Some of our special requests regarding allergies were lost in translation, perhaps due to multiple servers, but they did correct those mistakes.

Good food before the show
We wanted a place with good Asian food before seeing the Michael Jackson One show. Kumi's is right nearby and fit the bill perfectly. It has a romantic atmosphere for couples. We didn't like that it wasn't closed off from the crowded walkway at Mandalay Bay, but that was a minor inconvenience. The tapas dishes were excellent, as was the sushi and sashimi. Very innovative dishes. The service was excellent.

Super Good! Super Expensive!
Best sashimi we have had in Las Vegas so far. We are local, so we have been to many places. Super pricy though...3 persons with 3 rolls, 3 x 6 piece order of sashimi, 2 (6 total) glasses of wine each... $500 dinner!!! Most strip restaurant are a rip, but at least at Kumi you get great food, service and ambiance. In Los Angeles this would have been about $300 for comparable....

Great service, good food
The service was outstanding, with as much attention paid to our table as if we were the only table in the restaurant, without being overly attentive.
The food was good - we had the Hussy Roll, Spider Roll, and Spicy Tuna roll.
It's fairly pricy...be prepared to spend about $30-40 a person.
The noise level was ridiculously loud (music). NOT a good place for kids or conversation.

This place "rocks"!
Everything was outstanding. Highlights were the Black Cod warm plate and the Pop Rockin' roll. The roll actually contains watermelon pop rocks candy. Sounds strange, but it perfectly complements the fish and makes for quite an interesting experience of flavor explosions. I will most certainly be back!

Gem in Mandalay Bay
Sushi with a Korean influence. I recommend sharing dishes so you can try more. The rib cap Was the special and it was incredible! Top all this off with really good service and you have Kumi.

We were in Las Vegas for a conference and enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Kumi. The service was exceptional and every dish we tried left the table completely with not a morsel remaining!

I came here for dinner on the evening I was in Vegas alone. I ordered the Rock Shrimp Tempura and the Pop Rockin roll. Yep, I ate all of it! I also ordered some drink with blueberry Stoli and blueberry red bull. It was refreshing but after 1, I switched to Stoli blueberry with club soda. Food was delicious, server wasn't breathing down my neck to remove my plate as I set my chopsticks down between each bite. Some places are so excited to take it away from you. The roll was good but the rock shrimp tempura was delicious! I definitely recommend you get it.

Small and expensive but worth it!
Made a last minute reservation here and was very pleasantly surprised! Had drinks and appetizers at Rx boiler room before coming here so we only ordered drinks and 4 small plates to share. I have to admit that it is pricey, given the size of each dish. If we hadn't already eaten half our meal at the boiler room, I think we would have had to either spend an extra hundred dollars here on food or leave still hungry. Dishes were very unique though-I wouldn't normally think of eating sushi here but I loved what we got-whitefish carpaccio, crispy rice, octopus roll, and one roll that had pop rock candy in it! Sounds gimmicky (that's what made us order it) but it was surprisingly good! Even with the high prices, I would definitely come again!
