Another wonderful dinner at Kumi! Try the pop rockin’ roll and the hot mess, they’re perfect!

By far one of the best sushi restaurants I’ve been too . It beats nobu.
The protein roll is greater, he octopus is to die for .
You won’t be disappointed . Everything we tried was good .

After reading several reviews, I was a bit apprehensive, but were very pleasantly surprised and please with what a wonderful meal we had. The service was superb. Our server was very pleasant, honest, knowledgeable and very informative. The food was simply outstanding and the space was beautiful. We tried several different sushi and sashimi dishes as well as the sizzling steak and chicken dishes. They were all great. Although a bit pricy, at Kumi, you certainly get what you pay for. I would go back in a heart beat and would not hesitate to recommend Kumi to anyone.

Been here many times. Usually five stars. Service was just not great this night. Mistakes on orders and missing items and chasing the waiter to correct them. Overall it was 4 stars.

This place was off the hook!!! They had some of the best sushi I have ever had. And the waiter was so proactive in suggestions for the menu four of us did shared plating with continual entrées showing up so we could try a little bit of everything. It was absolutely wonderful!!!

I will be back next time we are in Las Vegas

Went there before seeing a show in the Hotel and were very happy with the outcome.

Modern look and feel that touches on classic, Japanese elements.

Food was prepared extremely quickly, but at a very high quality.

Our server was attentive, but not overbearing.

The drinks were made well and their list of Japanese Whiskeys was decent.

Overall, good food, served quickly, in a good environment.

We were there 4 yrs ago and couldn’t wait to go back! We were worried it may have changed but it was exactly as we recalled! Amazing sushi, appetizers and service! Our waiter Ben was charming but the whole team took care of us like we were VIPs! Magnificent evening with good friends.

A group of us wanted a quiet meal after working at a convention all week, and sushi was the team's request. I booked this place on OpenTable and we were seated within minutes of arriving at the front desk. Everyone was friendly and the service was great. We ordered several plates and everyone agreed that everything was top-notch.

The Sushi was horrible. The sushi chef should be fired. He has no idea what sushi is. He has no idea what sushi rice is. He has no idea how to make a roll. The restaurant misrepresents itself by calling itself Japanese, it isnt. Staff was attentive but you did not feel welcome but rushed. Skip this place.

Very average. However, I would go back for the baby back ribs which were exceptional . Had a snarky server that was replaced toward the end of the meal with a very proffessional well spirited young man.

My husband had been here before and wanted to take me and our daughters for dinner. We had a reservation but arrived early and they accommodated us no questions asked. Very nice restaurant. Excellent service. Fresh fish. My daughter had the Hot Mess roll , said was the best ever. Talked about it for days after. Upscale prices, but didn’t mind paying for the quality.

My husband and I loved everything about this place! Most notable was the INCREDIBLE service. Our water glasses were never empty, the food was super fast and delicious, and there was always someone clearing your table. It was incredible. The restaurant was packed, yet that didn't deter the speed or kindness of the service! I was pregnant so had to stick to the fully cooked options, would love to come back and try even more delicious sushi!

The service was fantastic... the food was exceptional from the “hot mess” roll to the gyozas and pork belly roll (our kids loved them) to the short ribs and black cod. Everything was amazing. My husband is dying to try to recreate it all at home (lucky me). Thanks for making our first night on our family vacation a success!
