Sushi et autres spécialités remarquables variées
Service sympa un peu débordé mais délai très correct
La pizza au thon est excellente
Intéressant les mets à partager et essayez les sur spécialités du chef
Et chose assez rare dans ce type de restaurant... un dessert (soufflé à fraise) excellent

Whenever I come to Mandalay Bay, I come to Kumi. I love the Tuna Crisps Sqaures, Gyozas, and Pop Rockin' roll.

Artistry of the food was beautiful. The price, however, for the small portions and small amount of creativity, did not add up. The restaurant sits relatively open just beyond the casino...so the noise level and the feeling of being in a hotel eatery does not help the experience. We had to go and have another dinner shortly after we ate even after spending over $150!

One of our favorite places to eat in Vegas. The Pop Rockin’ Roll is a MUST TRY!

I’m pretty picky about sushi but I eat at all kinds of sushi restaurant from everyday neighborhood places to Michelin starred restaurants. I found Kumi disappointing overall. Almost every dish missed the mark with sauces and saltiness overpowering the dishes across the board. The best roll was the signature Korean vegetable roll which was unexpected. Ambiance and service were very good.

It was the loudest sushi restaurant I've ever been to. The prices were basically ridiculously high for what you get. The food was good but it's good at many places that have $12 rolls of the same quality instead of paying $30. There were 2 servers constantly coming to the table asking the exact same questions... and some drinks never arrived. The two waiters never coordinated so then we were done the next one kept coming asked if we wanted dessert after we said no to the other and this happened throughout the entire meal. I think this restaurant lives only because it has direct access to the convention center and people on company budgets.

My fiancé and I had a great time. Our server was great and the food was excellent! The portions were a bit small for the price, but the food and drinks were great!

I sat at the sushi bar. When I asked the chef what was on the daily chef’s platter, (a premium item) he could not answer and gave me attitude. This was unfortunate considering I was dining alone and he was not busy (the restaurant was empty.) It was a well marketed restaurant featuring a poor dining experience.

Have been there twice and loved my experience! Went there for the 3rd time on a Saturday and they decided to try a DJ for the music. Very loud! Unable to hear anyone at our table. Felt as if we were at a disco with Donna Summers!
Looking forward to a Zen atmosphere with delicious Japanese foods. Food was EXCELLENT as always but we will not return if they continue with the loud disco music.

We had drinks served in the bar while they were getting our table. The drinks were well prepared. We decided to order a little at a time. We began with Crispy Rice and Calamari. Both quickly prepared and served. Followed with a roll and cucumber salad. Everything was well prepared and served quickly. Excellent meal.

Great spot if you're looking for a lighter dinner to pregame your wild Vegas night out. I've been here twice and never have had to wait; service was timely and very friendly, and we received some excellent recommendations on drinks. Sushi portions are small, so if you're leaning towards ordering a couple extra plates, go for it. My favorite entree was the pork gyoza; I'm more of a fan of tempura/fried rolls so the sushi here wasn't my favorite, but if you prefer the fresher & leaner side of sushi you'll enjoy this restaurant very much.

Food was good and the waiter was very pleasant. It was a nice place to eat and convenient for the business event we were attending in the Mandalay. As most restaurants on the Strip it was over priced for the meal, as to be expected. The sushi was fresh and the atmosphere was nice.

Possibly one of the best dining experiences we had in Vegas. We chose to sit at the bar snd share several appetizers and see if we would move onto entrees. The appetizers were so good, we ordered them again! Looking forward to going back the next time we are in Vegas. Service and food were a step above! Delicious!

We were at a business event @ Mandalay Bay and we walked by Kumi. We decided to give it a try as the staff seemed very friendly as we passed by. Later that evening we returned to the same warm welcome of great service. the waiter helped us tailor our order to experience a great meal. The food was timely and oh so delicious. The "Hot Mess" sushi was utterly fantastic! I can' wait to return to another enjoyable evening here.

Kumi was a very nice restaurant. A very classy place for a date night. The wait staff was excellent and very friendly. It was not very crowded for a Saturday night so that made it nice as well. It is on the pricey side for sure. My date and I had the seared albacore, blackened tuna , and the chef's sashimi plate. Our favorite was the blackened tuna. You would expect blackened to be spicy but this wasn't. It was however delicious and very fresh. You can get a better value for your sushi dollar elsewhere but for a high end date night it was great.

We made a reservation, and still had to wait 20 min, while there were open tables, it just seemed like nothing was organized. When we sat, it took a long time to get our drinks. Most of the food was good, the brussel sprouts were horrible. We love them and ordered 2 orders. The waiter hard ever came around. We didnt event want to waste any more time on telling him.

It was really nothing special. The hostesses were friendly, the server was meh, and the items we ordered were nothing to get too excited about. The sake was delicious, but ridiculously overpriced for the value.
