I'm sure when people say, "Let's go get sushi!" the first thing that comes to mind isn't, "Hamden has a great place." Well it should be. My fiancée and I dine at Kumo frequently and they are extremely consistent with their rolls and the service is always great. They just remodeled and we were both impressed with the changes in...

Had the Tuna roll and Tuna sashimi. It was good but the servers aren 't great. I couldn 't understand them. They are not shy about the prices they charge either .

We've come back here more than once, so I guess we like it! They offer a variety of Japanese cuisine from sushi to hibachi and more, but we usually get their sushi. Wait staff is very accommodating (occasional language issues) and sensitive to our food allergy issues. Most nights it's been quiet but on our last visit, there was a... More

My friend really likes sushi so we decided to go here instead of another similar steakhouse around the corner. Was amazed that it was Saturday evening around 6pm and very few customers were there when we arrived and when we left more than an hour later. Happy to report that the service was really exceptionally fast- and my steak was... More

The sushi is always fresh and delicious. The sushi 50% menu for lunch or all day Sundays is a great value.... Tuna, salmon, octopus, surf clam, yellowtail and always some uni. I go for the sushi but I'm sure the hibachi is good too.

Sit at the common hibachi bars and be treated to an amazing and amusing show by your own chef, cost is $16-22. We like to do this for birthdays. The food cooked right in front of you is a large delicious portion. Or if you want to sit in the quieter restaurant, order the sushi or other Japanese cuisine, and... More
