“Great value and fresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

When one thinks of an all you can eat buffet, it can sound unappetizing. I always wonder how long the food has been sitting out and who has breathed on it. Not so at Kumo! Sushi and hibachi chefs make food right there behind the counter and food is constantly replenished. The staff is attentive and kind. The price is excellent. I'm not sure how they make any money! Kids are charged by their height, which always produces giggles in our family. Because Chinese food and hibachi is offered, it's a great place for sushi lovers to take non sushi lovers. Desserts could be better, but that's not the main attraction. Don't wait and go try this restaurant!

“Great Variety, Value and Welcoming!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a large restaurant with good atmosphere, a huge buffet area and happy, attentive staff. A wide array of Japanese foods are available to you on the buffet (Sushi and Hibachi), as well as a full dinner menu if you dont choose the buffet option. The Buffet is tremendous value (lunch $9.99 and dinner $21.99). Drinks are also very reasonable (domestic beer $3!) If you enjoy sushi, this is amazing value and super new addition to the area.

“Great value quality and variety”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

This restaurant has only opened for 2 weeks. They have free parking in a covered lot. They offer incredible variety- including about a dozen nigiri sushi, and a dozen specialty rolls, all labeled with contents, some vegetarian rolls, fresh cut fruit, green and seaweed salads, large boiled shrimp, a dozen hot entrees, including baby clams, fluke, salmon teriyaki, tempura, lots of items that you can pick and choose to make the hibachi dish- including tender beef, large shrimp, salmon, calamari, chicken, and a dozen vegetables, noodles, fried rice. They have desserts and a number of ice creams. I can't imagine that they can keep up the variety and the quality at these prices, but do give it a try- you won't be disappointed.
I went there twice for lunch already, I hear they have even more variety at dinner but prices are highter. 850-860 East Main Street, Stamford, CT 06902
