Our waiter was Allen and he was wonderful. Always had a smile and checked on us but not too much that it affected our meal. He was our waiter a year and a half ago as well. The food was delicious as always

A must for a stay in Las Vegas if you are up for a great Japanese restaurant experience.
Reserve a table upfront (e.g. with opentable) as this is a popular place.

Nice restaurant. No problems, not blown away. I’m spoiled in San Francisco and San Mateo. For those prices the sushi is so much better in the Bay Area.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.
