Excellent Japanese cuisine with creative and flavorful options. The service was fast and friendly and very reasonably priced for Vegas.

Great spot if you're looking for a lighter dinner to pregame your wild Vegas night out. I've been here twice and never have had to wait; service was timely and very friendly, and we received some excellent recommendations on drinks. Sushi portions are small, so if you're leaning towards ordering a couple extra plates, go for it. My favorite entree was the pork gyoza; I'm more of a fan of tempura/fried rolls so the sushi here wasn't my favorite, but if you prefer the fresher & leaner side of sushi you'll enjoy this restaurant very much.

Food was good and the waiter was very pleasant. It was a nice place to eat and convenient for the business event we were attending in the Mandalay. As most restaurants on the Strip it was over priced for the meal, as to be expected. The sushi was fresh and the atmosphere was nice.

Possibly one of the best dining experiences we had in Vegas. We chose to sit at the bar snd share several appetizers and see if we would move onto entrees. The appetizers were so good, we ordered them again! Looking forward to going back the next time we are in Vegas. Service and food were a step above! Delicious!

We were at a business event @ Mandalay Bay and we walked by Kumi. We decided to give it a try as the staff seemed very friendly as we passed by. Later that evening we returned to the same warm welcome of great service. the waiter helped us tailor our order to experience a great meal. The food was timely and oh so delicious. The "Hot Mess" sushi was utterly fantastic! I can' wait to return to another enjoyable evening here.

Kumi was a very nice restaurant. A very classy place for a date night. The wait staff was excellent and very friendly. It was not very crowded for a Saturday night so that made it nice as well. It is on the pricey side for sure. My date and I had the seared albacore, blackened tuna , and the chef's sashimi plate. Our favorite was the blackened tuna. You would expect blackened to be spicy but this wasn't. It was however delicious and very fresh. You can get a better value for your sushi dollar elsewhere but for a high end date night it was great.

We made a reservation, and still had to wait 20 min, while there were open tables, it just seemed like nothing was organized. When we sat, it took a long time to get our drinks. Most of the food was good, the brussel sprouts were horrible. We love them and ordered 2 orders. The waiter hard ever came around. We didnt event want to waste any more time on telling him.

It was really nothing special. The hostesses were friendly, the server was meh, and the items we ordered were nothing to get too excited about. The sake was delicious, but ridiculously overpriced for the value.

Kumi was recommended to me by a Caesars Palace concierge for a restaurant to go to before the Michael Jackson One show. The food and menu were good. Prices were high, but not a surprise. Service was uneven. Too many servers rushing around every which way. My wife and I both felt rushed even thought our food was slow to come out kitchen and one of our orders was missed. Should be easy to fix the hectic, uneven service; but it definitely needs to be fixed given the price point.

They need to add sound dampening/absorbing materials in the restaurant, when it’s crowded you literally need to yell to hear people.

I was unhappy with the New Years eve fixed menu. I just wanted sushi. I felt it was overpriced. Would be good for celebrating a special occasion I guess. It was loud and kinda dark. I'm sure there are 25 other places one could go in Vegas.

Chose Kumi for NYE since it was close to a concert venue. Food was excellent with great variety of choices. Prices are on the high side but worth it for high end dining.
