My friends and I went for a bachelorette party and the restaurant wasn’t very busy and it took forever for our food and our checks. The food was great but the service wasn’t.
We got engaged at this sushi restaurant. It was “our spot” for so long. Unfortunately, it was our WORST experience. Chef Akira has left and that means that all his dishes have as well. They would not even make the dishes if asked. They had all the ingredients but just refused to make them. Then, my fiancé popped the question and not so much of a congrats from anyone. It was a stone cold experience. Food was expensive and not up to par with prior experiences. Appetizer came out after our main sushi rolls. Drinks were empty for a majority of our dinner. It is such a shame that a great restaurant that holds so many memories is declining fast.
Our food took forever and the service wasn’t great.
Bad service, unimaginative menu, and no flexibility in dealing with food allergies. I would not recommend this restaurant.
The service was superb from the moment we walked in. Our waiter was friendly, attentive yet incredibly professional. We ordered sake (they have some amazing sakes!) and a cocktail. Then proceeded to fall into a food coma with scallops, rolls and ribeye...One after the other, bite after bite, we were so happy with our choices.
The food was wonderful and our server was great!!
food is always Spectacular!
Service and knowledge of the menu is very helpful.
I wanted to go to a different Japanese restaurant, so her I am in Kimi, the food is very good, service a well, will definitely return to try more of this menu.
The food was excellent! The service was great and everything came out timely and cooked perfectly.
Kumi has amazing food, service & atmosphere. We went for Valentine’s Day & their course menu was delicious from start to finish! The pricing was definitely worth it & was much cheaper than we expected it to be, especially since it is on the strip! This place is a must try!!!!
A great find at the Mandalay Bay hotel. The tuna pizza was delicious as were the other shared dishes. Highly recommend. Would definitely go back.
2nd time at Kumi and we will continue to come back! Great service and food!!
The server was wonderful - she was friendly and checked on us periodically to ensure our needs were met.
We eat at Kumi every year during our Convention time. It is simply one of our "go to's" for a fun and tasty dinner.
Kumi was exceptional. We really enjoyed the sushi and sake that we were recommended. I have Celiac's disease and the staff were very accommodating to my diet restriction.
The only negative are the size of the rolls, other than that I highly recommend Kumi.
have eaten here a few years in a row now and it never disappoints, service and food are outstanding - some excellent cocktails also
Best restaurant for me in Vegas!! Excellent quality of food and very nice service! The Kobe Beef Tacos are just amazing as well as the signature rolls! Best Sushi
Excellent. 4.5+ stars. YES we would recommend and YES we would go back. LONGER REVIEW: We are Vegas Locals and this was our fourth time to Kumi and it was moderately busy for a Friday night. We are a fan of Akira Back (the owner), having been to several of his restaurants including Singapore. SERVICE: Had a reservation and was seated promptly in a nice booth by request. Service was Excellent from "Risa" - even though she was super busy with several large tables, she was always there when you needed her. WINE and COCKTAILS: Started with a nice Malbec by the glass along with a "made to order" custom Martini. Bartender was spot on with the Martini. Yummy. Wines by the glass had an adequate list - some of the other cocktails looked very interesting. CUISINE: We did a "home style sharing buffet" of Edamame, Spicy Rock Shrimp, Miso Cod, Spicy Miso Soup, and the King Crab roll. All very good to excellent. OVERALL: This is a nice Go-To Japanese/Pan-Asian place in Mandalay Bay that satisfies. It can get loud if crowded. YES we would go back.
Very good food!
Kumi Japanese Restaurant + Bar always have a great selection of food and beverage. Our servers are always wonderful and they do a great job of making sure you are taken care of in a comfortable setting.
One of our favorite places to frequent in Vegas. The food is outstanding, value is good, service is consistently top notch. Its refreshing to see a restaurant with staff at this caliber. You never have to flag down a server to make a request for ordering, or filling your drinks.
Very average food. Not a good value for the price.
Absolutely amazing! We decided to spend our anniversary and NYE dinner at Kumi because we love their sushi. They had a prefix menu for NYE which we were a little leary about at first but everything was unbelievably outstanding! The hot mess roll was out of this world! They even surprised us with little "Happy Anniversary" chocolates with our deserts. The atmosphere is great! They even had a DJ for NYE which we loved! Can't say enough great things about this place!
Our server was excellent. We had her pick our meals based on a set price. Every dish she chose for us was delicious!!
Delicious Sushi Rolls and the pork dish was one of the diners favorite dish ever ( age 15 ) of his life!
Consistent and good every time!
Waitress and support staff were slow, kept forgetting orders. It was almost bizarre for such a nice place.
Food was good, being next to shopping made it somewhat loud. We had the Seoul garden and soft shell crab sushi which were decent. The seasonal souffle was great though; we had the strawberry one. What made the experience much better was our server Miranda who was amazing. Very professional and very keen to our interests. Extremelt knowledgeable about the menu and so personable! Absolutely one of the best servers I have ever had.
Great experience from the greeting to paying the bill. The staff is amazing and willing to help in any way. We have been coming to Kumi annually for the past four years. Each time, it exceeds our expectations!
Great dining experience! Food was wonderful
The fish is fresh, service is fab, but this place is pricey. Be prepared! I highly recommend the poprocks roll. And pretty much anything on the menu will not disappoint.
Overpriced with terrible fish. Got sick after eating here. Didn’t want to leave the hotel and totally wish we had. Don’t waste your money or sacrifice your stomach.
Staying at Mandalay so it was convenient, but sadly noting much to recommend it. The sushi was nothing special, and the menu overall was limited and uninspired.
The food was delicious and the service was fast and great. Hot Mess roll!
We made our reservation weeks prior. Got there early and they told us they couldn’t seat us until reservation time. Then stuck us Olin a huge back dinning room without anyone there. Truly, we were the only ones in a dining room for 150 people. So weird! So uncomfortable and so silly. They had this dining room available and wouldn’t offer it to us for 20mins. Won’t go there again.
Kumi was a nice quite dinner. It may have been close to closing since the dining room was entirely empty but the bar was busy. The lychee rose cocktail was to die for and the kumikaze roll was delicious. All items we order were very freshly prepared and presented beautifully.
The food was excellent and the service was amazing!! My Husband and I really enjoyed this beautiful place and we will be returning!
Very good a little pricey but excellent food and service
Birthday and Anniversary
great food. horrible service. basic cucumber salads took over 30 minutes to come out and then tasted awful, like they forgot to add the dressing
