Staff very knowledgeable about gluten free dining which is hard in an Asian restaurant. Waiter put other members of our parties food on the table and told my daughter, who is gluten free, you can't eat that. Very impressive

Won't be back. Our waitress was extremely rude. I ordered an avocado salad. When it arrived there was roe on top (not described on the menu). I cannot eat fish so I nicely told the waitress. They just rinsed it off (I saw pieces of roe on the lettuce when it was brought back). Sushi rolls tasted average. I got... More

Great food. Very well prepared. I took my daughter to eat over Parents weekend at QU and we were pleasantly surprised.

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
