I wasn't particularly impressed. We went on a visit with family who live in Hamden and I expected to be wowed.

Looking from the outside, Kumo does not have great curb appeal. However, this is one of THE BEST hibachi / sushi locations I have been too!! Their rolls are fresh and hibachi is entertaining, while at the same time a nice enjoyable atmosphere for families, couples etc. I recommend Kumo to my family when they come to visit me! Keep...

I ordered a quick sushi bento box and additional roll. The rolls were good and the bento box was what I would expect. I think that the habachi might be a better bet. I did get a chance to look over the fish selection at the sushi bar. Everything appeared clean and fresh but the selection was pretty basic.

We have been traveling to Hamden and New Haven for business for a month now and Kumo is hands down the best spot we have found. Great food. Great service. Money well spent.

We generally do the hibachi @ Kumo for special occasions and it never disappoints! My nephew loves the atmosphere and the fun he has with the chef who plays "food tricks" with him. Tonight we all ordered something different and everything was just perfect. Filet, chicken, shrimp and salmon, not to mention the fried rice and vegetables, perfectly grilled. None... More

I stopped by Kumo for a quick dinner. Co-workers had told me about the place, so I thought I would check it out. It was an early Monday evening, so it was quiet as I entered. I chose to sit at the sushi bar. The place is quite large with plenty of tables along with several hibachi dining areas. I... More

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
