The food is always good. When it first opened it was fantastic. I am not sure what changed but I still highly recommend it. The appetizers are exceptional. They offer small plates which is nice to pair with appetizers. If you are very hungry they offer regular sized meals too.

Sample platter is amazing. A must order item for the first timers Crab rangoons are to die for. Everything is reasonably priced. Servers are bit on a slow side but it was crowded so understandable.

Sorry I had to rate my experience poor, but when the entree is gloppy, too sweet (billed as spicy) and soggy - no other rating fits. The service was good, though the extra wait staff seemed to stand around observing and snickering. Would like to try again, if I can shake off memory of that glop-covered sog of a meal.

Atmosphere and service staff were quite pleasant! Since I had particular dietary needs they were very accommodating in preparing me just the right dish! And, it was delicious! Others at our table commented on how great their meals were!

We tried Kuma's based upon the reviews that we read, and were not disappointed. My wife had a honey shimp dish that was very nice, and I have the Korean BBQ short-ribs, which were very, very good. These weren't the best Korean short-ribs that I've had, but they were solidly good. A very good value. You won't be disappointed.

I am generally not a patient person, and when we were told it would be a 30 minute wait I wasn't thrilled. They don't take reservations but we could have called ahead I guess. But they were very nice and we found a nice high-top in the bar and ordered a couple of drinks. The bartender was also friendly, fast,... More

Outstanding food and service. One person loved the honey walnut chicken. Another had chicken and sausage fusion paella and two had hot chili shrimp. We all shared each other's food and decided each dish was excellent. The Asian gumbo soup also was great. Overrate!!

We arrived for an early dinner and were served quickly. Our service was outstanding, I ordered from the small plates menu, the honey walnut crunchy shrimp and crispy green beans. Everything was superfresh and flavors and aromas of the food were awesome. The plates were generous and by asking for light on the honey sauce, I felt I stayed within... More

We had a nice visit. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the service was excellent, we even got free coffee at the end.. The food that I ordered was average, but the other guests were satisfied. A small issue is the parking because it is centrally located and need to find parking in a small distance.
