Two words: Gummy rice. The service was fine but the rice was just terrible. I’ve had better sushi at Whole Foods. Barely edible, left hungry.

Very Good to Excellent. 4.5 stars. YES we would go back. LONGER REVIEW: We are Vegas Locals and this was our third time to Kumi and it was moderately busy for a Saturday 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 - always there when you needed them. CUISINE: We did a "home style sharing buffet" of Tempura Shrimp, Miso Cod, Scottish Salmon entree, and Kobe Beef tacos. All very good to excellent. Wines by the glass had an adequate list - some of the cocktails looked very interesting. OVERALL: This is a nice Go-To Japanese place in Mandalay Bay that satisfies. YES we would go back.

Had the pleasure of hosting key customers at Kumi Restaurant at Mandaly Bay - Las Vegas. Our waiter recommended the "Taster Option" and we turned the chore of selection over to him. He did not disappoint. One of my guest said the meal may have been the best he has ever had in Vegas, and he's a regular. Exceptional interactive service and unique & spectacular food choices left us all significantly impressed!

Very disappointing expereince. Had a business dinner with colleagues during a trade show at Mandalay. Seated on time, waiter was initially attentive. After taking our order, appetizers came out fairly quickly. We ate and then waited a fairly long time, I tried to find our waiter after but nowhere to be found. He eventually comes by to ask if we are finished and I point out we hadn't gotten entrees, he went back to the kitchen to check only to come back to say he neglected to put in the order. He asked us to re-order, while we were telling him what we ordered he was telling us what he recalled our ordering, and then while we were still telling him he essentially walked away to turn in our order. Shows up fairly quickly with the entrees, but 2 rolls seemed to be double orders; I caught him and asked if they were 1 or 2 orders on both dishes, he just mumbled that it was a single and that was our order. When the check came sure enough he charged us twice on each of the rolls, I objected as we didn't order or eat the duplicates; I thought he was going to remove the extra charges but he didn't. At this point, I was late for an event so just paid as I didn't have time to speak with the manager.

This was not a great place to go to. We chose it because we were going to go to the Michael Jackson show at the Mandalay. I found the environment to be tired, the food uninspired and expensive for what it was and the service mediocre.

The ambiance is mediocre, loud and dark walls give an eerie feeling (but that seems to be that part of Mandalay Bay Casino's theme).
Service was a little too quick and robotic, no personal caring involved.
Limited desserts, my cocktail tasted odd (and it was simple tequila and tonic).
But great quality food.

We had a table of 14.

Overall, the meal was “OK” and about what you would expect. However, for that many people... the single waiter was overwhelmed. Basic service was very slow.

The Resturant had a good crowd, but not too busy. This is Mandalay Bay for Pete’s Sake, we just expected more.

Late bite. Food was okay. Service was a little lackluster. Not a bad choice if you are nearby but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to eat there.

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.

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.
