Sushi was very good. Excellent chicken fried rice as well. The meal was quick (which is what we were looking for) and wait is minimal.

My son had a half day of school so we decided to go to Kumi sushi for some great sushi. We ordered 4 rolls between us and ate everything. When the waitress found out, she brought him a wonderful green tea ice cream which was equally as good. It really was a great lunch and we are looking forward to... More

The hibachi was really weak. Service was AWFUL- it took 20 minutes to get our drinks- Cokes, waters, n kiddie cocktail. The sushi was just OK. Our sever was really nice n she tried but they weren't overly busy but maybe under staffed? It was definitely not up to par with the other sushi/ hibachi restaurants in the area. I... More

I have been here now twice and both times was outstanding. We went once for dinner and once for lunch. The lunch specials are great! You can get 3 rolls, soup and salad for $12.99. The regular and specialty rolls are all good and fresh. The staff is attentive and the ambiance is outstanding. Looking forward to going back.

The sushi the very good, as were the appetizers. I mean really good. However, the hibachi dishes were nothing that I would order again. They really felt like an expensive version of Chinese food. We all felt that way. However, we would come back for the sushi and appetizers without blinking.

Place was pretty empty but we came early. Sushi was good but service was very slow...girl seemed more pre occupied w her cell phone than her customers. Food was average but a bit over priced we felt..

We eat here often. We have tried a variety of rolls and have never been disappointed. Their hibachi dishes are just OK but the sushi keeps us coming back. The atmosphere and great food presentation makes it an enjoyable dinner out. Don't let the cheesy lights they just added on the outside of the restaurant fool you. It's tastefully decorated... More

Tried the Super Volcano Roll, the Incredible Hulk Roll, the Blackhawk Roll, the Angry Dragon Roll, and the Amazing Pancake. These Rolls are on Steroids, large portions, and Beautifully presented. Been here twice and can't get enough. The Huge Booths are terrific for privacy and a nice group of friends. Such a Pleasant Surprise so far from Chicago. Northern Illinois... More

We had a very nice meal here. The decor is interesting- neon lights, shiny dark floors and Tokyo-esque. The sushi is fresh and beautifully presented by attentive staff. We would definitely return.
