Great Place Sushi and Hibachi

Great place for a wide variety of sushi in a sit-down environment (regular tables or low tables without shoes) as well as Hibachi with a chef around the big flat grill. Excellent place for groups or celebration, e.g., birthday, events.

We come to Kumo often, usually with our nine-year-old. They offer everything from kid-friendly appetizers and "sushi" without raw fish to sushi that my hard-core sushi loving husband can't wait to eat. In addition to their great sushi, they offer a very entertaining and delicious hibachi experience. We love coming here!

There is barely a week that goes by that I don't get sushi takeout from this place. Staff is friendly, sushi and menu selections are both great, and prices are very decent too! Open and cheery atmosphere. I like the tatami tables when dining in.

Kumo is my favorite sushi place in the Kalamazoo area. It's great for lunch if you know what you are going to order. The Sunday special is a great deal. I like them for the variety of rolls both special and regular. The rolls are small enough in diameter so you don't feel like you have to cover your mouth... More

Sushi treat with my 3 1/2 year old grandson and my daughter means Kumo!! He loves the special table with steps, removes his shoes and can't wait for the Edamame to arrive for Course 1! The staff are attentive to him (and us) and make sure we have everything we need. The food is lovely and delicious!

Prior to trying Kuma we were huge fans of a sushi place in downtown Kazoo. Their selection is big, not huge like other places but you can see that they have perfected what they do. My favorite is the White Christmas, and I've not been able to find it anywhere but at Kumo. If you love Sushi give this place... More

I love Kumo. I used to be a big fan of Sakura but over the past few times that I've been there I honestly feel like Kumo is better. The employees of Kumo are much more friendly and they make you feel like you are welcome. I only come here for sushi and on the rare occasion that I do... More

We went to the Kumo Hibachi & Sushi as a family for our granddaughter's graduation from nursing school. We had an excellent dinner while watching the chef prepare it before our eyes. Very entertaining evening. Not necessarily a restaurant for very small children.

Our cook was very generous with his show antics and kept my five year old extremely happy. He kept responding to her varied requests and making more fires. LOL. The food was good. It wasn't the very best hibachi I have ever had, but it was good. Wasn't loving their soup..... The hibachi area could use a little decor lift,... More

Me and my friends go here every time we meet up for lunch. It is my favorite place for sushi in town and I love the feel of the place. The prices are good for sushi and the hibachi is great as well. White Christmas roll is amazing!!!!
