At this stage! I’m not afraid to say that this is probably the best Japanese restaurant I’ve ever tried. The Albacore is absolutely stunning, it melts in your mouth and the Sour Japanese Whiskey is the best.

The service was a 5 start one and the attention to detail was second to none. I can believe o have not tried before. A must when you coming to Vegas.

After an event, we decided to eat at Kumi. The restaurant is large and the back room offers tables for groups, but it is noisy.
The service was good, but not great. We let the waiter order for our group of 10. The appetizers were ok and nothing special.
The rolls were good, but not great. The best meal was the Kobe beef short ribs. They were so tender.
This is. It a cheap place and we expected more.

So we went to Kumi for my wifes birthday. When I made reservations i told them it was her birthday. So when we got there, no recognition whatsoever. The food was very tasty but way overpriced. The service was mediocre. So at the end I had to mention to the waitress it was my wifes birthday. She then said happy birthday. wow. Then she said she the desert was on her. We said we didn't have much time ok we will try the hazelnut cake but we are in a hurry can we get the check. Never saw her again. Someone else had to get the check. We had to walk out. I am so disgusted I left her a decent tip. Wish I could take it back. Left me feeling very disappointed and angry.

Had a fantastic dinner at Kumi. The Kobe Short Ribs were fantastic as were the sides. The lava cake I had for dessert was probably the best I ever had anywhere and the espresso was the best I had outside of Italy. Service was excellent - the server was extremely attentive and very pleasant. Would definitely come back.
