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!

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.

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.

My husband really liked Kumi; however, I didn’t so much. Everything seemed pretty spicy, so if that’s your jam you may love it. I don’t love hot food. My rating is based on personal food preference.

We were staying in hotel and overwhelmed with so many dining choices . We made a reservation for Kumi and got there 20 min early and they seated us right away. The best thing about this restaurant was how FAST the orders came out . Wow ! That was truly impressive . Our group has a vegetarian and age found plenty to eat , we also had someone who doesn’t eat raw and she was totally satisfied too . We enjoyed the light batter on calamari , the two kinds of gyoza , and the black cod was incredible . The wagyu beef tacos were disappointing but the sushi roll with pop rocks was fun !

Friend was fresh and delicious- amazing cocktails but the prize was the world class service. Our waiter was incredible as was his supporting bus crew. It was some of the best service I’ve had in a long time.

The food was delicious but on the pricier side. The acoustics in the room we were seated caused an echo and felt very loud.

Restaurant in Mandalay Bay
Seated quickly. The hostess took a photo for us as well.

Michael was our server and was great! George (Jorge) was personable too. They didn’t have Pernod, but did have Bulleit, and the right artisan cherries for a Woodford Reserve old-fashioned.

Ordered Bao Buns (excellent) and sushi (unagi, and Alaskan King Crab) to start. Awesome, fresh. Well-prepared.

Ordered hot saki; dry and hot, so my husband was happy.

Entree (split) was the Kobe short ribs. FALL OFF THE BONE. They graciously brought a knife, but it wasn’t required. :)

Dessert was a chocolate lava cake and strawberry soufflé with vanilla ice cream and a blackberry creme anglaise. Both done to PERFECTION.

Bravo, Kumi!!

Drinks were very expensive and for $18 expect at least something of decent size. Sushi and pot stickers were very good. Steak was ok and had to order sides ala cart:(

We had a waitress filling in as the ‘head’ waitress was too busy. The gal filling in was awesome. The main waitress who ended up bringing our bill was unfriendly and curt. Went to use up my express comps that are expiring and she was super rude. Ruined a great meal. We also tipped 25% cash so no idea where her attitude came from.

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

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!
