This restaurant has a weird menu - not really Japanese and mixed with American food. Preparation of the dishes was average and the flavors were off. Go to MOzen for a much better experience. This place is over priced and over hyped.

Service is attentive but they tend to treat you lie you have no idea about food.

Our whole party loved this restaurant during our Vegas trip. The food is made with quality ingredients and elegantly presently. It is definitely more upscale than other nearby options, which was what we were looking for. Quality and quick (without being rushed) service as well. One item of note: the crispy rice. We ordered this on a whim, not sure what it was, and all loved it!

We had reservations for a business meal, were seated right on time, and had an exceptional staff experience. Everyone that visited our table was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and able to answer very specific diet questions. The atmosphere was fun but not loud, and the menu has a wide variety for all tastes, including very unique dishes. I have eaten here in the past and would do so again in the future.

A very enjoyable meal. Best part was Miso Glazed Cod, Toban Filet and Tuna Sashami. Had 3 other dishes all shared but these were outstanding.
Just remember a sushi meal is not a Meat and Potato experience. Go to enjoy your taste buds not fill your belly. You won't starve so don't deny yourself the experience

excited to find this is part of the same group that owns Yellowtail at Bellagio, one of my favorite sushi restaurants in LV. Food was just as good...a must try for sushi lovers and don't miss the Tuna pizza with truffle oil. Always great. One of the great things about both restaurants is sitting at the bar and a great staff. Impressed they remember us year after year.

Expense, but good sushi. However, the service was terrible. I had to track down our waiter twice to follow up on food and drink orders. Rarely came back and asked if we needed anything. This with a party of 6 people on a business dinner and a $500 tab with the gratuity included. Why should I have to ask for soy and wasabi at a sushi place? Very disappointed.

 (Baltimore)·Dined on September 13, 2017

Food was quite good, unique cocktails were outstanding, but the environment - sitting right next to a busy convention center walkway, with loud music coming from a restaurant across the way, made discussion at the table nearly impossible. If you go, insist on a table near the back, where the noise level might be tolerable.

The best Sushi I've ever had. But I wouldn't go there is you are hungry because the food portion is on the smaller side. But delicious. This will be our regular place to come while visiting Las Vegas from now on.

The food was amazing, and the service was great too.
It was a little on the expensive side because it is located inside the Mandalay Bay, (to be expected) but the food and overall experience was so good that we actually had dinner here two of the nights we were in Las Vegas.

The food was delicious. The sashimi was sliced a little thin than normal serving portions but it was evenly sliced thin and chef's selection was excellent. The uni/grilled shrimp pasta dish could have been a tad bigger sized portion but again, the shrimp was grilled to perfection and the uni/lobster sauce pasta was tasty. Our waiter was friendly and always attentive to make sure our drinks and water glasses were always filled. We would definitely eat there again the next time we visit Vegas again for sure! Thank you.

Been there twice in one week. Service is excellent. Food is great. One of the best Sushi restaurants in Las Vegas. Nice atmosphere. Staff is very friendly. Bartender makes good cocktails and she is very friendly. Place is not cheap, but worth it. Great for dinner. Special occasions. Getting together with your friends for a few drinks and some great seafood/sushi.

 (Central Coast)·Dined on July 7, 2017

The service was impeccable, attentive and quick. The food was amazing and the ambiance was wonderful too. We were celebrating our anniversary and although the place was packed, it was still intimate and I didn't have to speak loud over the noise. I don't have one bad review to give. We were completely satisfied with our dinning experience. The shrimp gyoza was wonderful, but our favorite was the yellow tail with serrano peppers and cilantro as an appetizer (we should have ordered another one of those), we also shared the Hot Mess roll and Pork Belly roll, both to die for!! We will definitely return!

I went to Kumi not knowing quite what to expect. The ambiance puts you in a relaxed yet sophisticated environment. There was minimal noise and the service was excellent. The food and drink choices, while a bit overpriced, were very delicious. I would recommend Kumi to anyone looking for a nice meal experience.
