We long ago stopped doing the "chef show hibachi" stuff. However, we do still like that food. So we stopped in for a quiet lunch at Kumo today and we pleasantly surprised. The place is very attractive and the food is very good. Lunch prices are reasonable. So nice to get a good meal and that is also good for... More

A great place to celebrate a birthday! We had lots of fun and laughter! Noticed the most recent reviews were mixed so was not sure what to expect. Food was good however I asked for a sushi menu and never got one but my meal was enough so never asked again. Typical average Japanese Hibachi atmosphere and food. I am... More

I have to say this was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever experienced. To start with we have been going to Kumo for years, in fact I went through my credit card statements and have been there over 16 times this year alone. My wife and I went to Kumo to celebrate my brother’s birthday with his... More

We went there for dinner tonight, (2 adults, 2 teenagers, 1 preteen). The experience was festive. The chefs put on a show while they cook dinner. There is also a sushi bar to order from in case you don't want hibachi. Kind of pricey but the overall experience is worth it, especially if it is for a special occasion.

We have eaten at this Kumo's a couple of times. Seems like every time we have came in they are always understaffed and the service is slow. Food wise if you love sushi then this would be the place for you. Nobody beats the way they make them.
