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.

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.

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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
