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.

The food and the service were excellent. We especially liked the pork Gyoza, the grilled asparagus and the Sushi. The red ginger vinaigrette on the house salad was also a big hit.

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.

Everything was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. Prices are kind of high, some of the portions were small. Service was quick but a bit too brisk at times.

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!

From the hostess to the servers who took care of us all went very well....occasionally forgotten for refreshing our Japanese tea but otherwise great!
Food was excellent and the recommendations made were so tasty...that tuna sashimi pizza was to die for and the strawberry soufflé for dessert was perfection

I love the concept of this restaurant but as a gluten free (medical) person, it was very hard to find items I could eat. A simple addition of tamari instead of soy sauce would make all the difference - it costs the same and tastes the same. The food I was able to eat was fantastic though... great people watching. Our waiter on 3/4 seemed very distracted and forgot some of our items but quickly brought them when reminded. I really wish during conferences this place was open for a quick sushi lunch.

Went here for a birthday. Great food, service was quick and often, and ambiance was great. Food was a little bit pricey, but nothing unexpected with Vegas pricing. Quality of food was excellent. Fish was very fresh and plenty of appetizers to choose from. They also have a great selection of Japanese whiskeys and saki

Such a great atmosphere and selection of food. I was in town on a business trip with 3 other colleges, so finding a food option that we all enjoyed can be difficult. We had one unsure sushi eater and there were plenty of options for that person if they didn't want sushi.

The restaurant was beautiful, and felt like you stepped away from the Vegas hustle. We were lucky enough to sit the cherry blossom atrium area. Gorgeous! The light fixture was so neat we were all really fans the decor. Being in Vegas both the food and restaurant should be unique and I definitely think Kumi hit those requirements.

I had the Hot Mess roll, it was great. Not to spicy, but still had enough kick. Between the 4 of us we ordered a roll each and one to share. It was the perfect amount of food. Great quality for the price.

This is probably become a go to when I return to Vegas.

Kumi was so good the first time, that I went back again and was not disappointed. The food was very good, but the server didn't seem to know the menu well. (I was trying to order something I had before and couldn't figure out what it would be on the menu.)

This is a great place to have a quiet moment (or a date) in a noisy town! I highly recommend giving it a try, but you have to like fish!
