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.

Kumi was recommended to me by a Caesars Palace concierge for a restaurant to go to before the Michael Jackson One show. The food and menu were good. Prices were high, but not a surprise. Service was uneven. Too many servers rushing around every which way. My wife and I both felt rushed even thought our food was slow to come out kitchen and one of our orders was missed. Should be easy to fix the hectic, uneven service; but it definitely needs to be fixed given the price point.

Food was very good, just thought the presentation of Roll would have been more extravagant.

They need to add sound dampening/absorbing materials in the restaurant, when it’s crowded you literally need to yell to hear people.

I was unhappy with the New Years eve fixed menu. I just wanted sushi. I felt it was overpriced. Would be good for celebrating a special occasion I guess. It was loud and kinda dark. I'm sure there are 25 other places one could go in Vegas.

Chose Kumi for NYE since it was close to a concert venue. Food was excellent with great variety of choices. Prices are on the high side but worth it for high end dining.

We ordered wine and the Waiter was going to make selections for us, but after two disappointing mediocre dishes he forgot us and spent the rest of his time paying attention to the tables with larger parties (we were 2 diners). Another waitress noticed we had been sitting a very long time with no food or drink after the first 2 dishes and asked us how we were doing. She saw to it that we finally received our wine and a 3rd dish. More waiting in which our original waiter buzzed by apologizing that the other large group tables (that arrived after us) were taking his time. Another woman came by (manager?) and comped our wine with apologies. After that 3rd dish we left. Sad, it was a birthday dinner specifically here because of such a good experience a year ago. We won’t be back.
