Restaurant details
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Have been to this unlikely location (next to Pauley Toyota and in front of a Walmart) several times. The sushi has been uniformly fresh, professionally prepared, and exquisitely presented.

The staff friendly, knowlegeable, and attentive without being intrusive.

The milieu clean and well appointed. Trendy but tasteful. Uncrowded feeling even with near capacity seating. Murmur of happy diners.

Highest recommendation.

We have been to Kumi twice in the last two months. Both times the sushi has been outstanding. Fresh, flavorful, and beautiful presentations. The non-sushi items are also very good. They have 1/2 price appetizers between 5-7 which is always appreciated. We have eaten sushi throughout Japan, and although the freshness of the fish cannot be compared ( hello land locked Illinois), the sushi here is well prepared. Our new local favorite. They have a diverse Sake menu, prices are reasonable, unique rolls are offered, and our service has been impeccable. Worth the trip!

It's surprising to think of Illinois, let alone Crystal Lake, and a location for great sushi, but this new restaurant is exactly that. WIth an ultramodern decor, the visitor is presented with a visual as well as a gustatory delight. The sushi is prepared fresh when you order it. The cucumber salad is crisp and light. There are several vegetable options, so vegans can enjoy themselves as well. Choose the sweet potato rolls for a wonderful and unique taste.

Stopped in to grab a quick bite to tide me over until a late dinner party. First time in there - I liked the interior and venue, eclectic - sat at the sushi bar. They have a separate bar area on the other side. The sushi appetizer included 5 pieces of fish - have to say it was some of the freshest tasting sushi I have had in a while. Sitting at the sushi bar, I could see other orders and the rolls look amazing - great presentation! I will definitely go back for dinner and/or lunch! They are having a special right now, too!

Large selection of sushi and maki. Service was fast and friendly, food was fresh and delicious, very similar to Kyoto without the cooking tables. They do offer chicken and steak entrees for those who do not like sushi. Give this place a try if you enjoy Japanese food, you will to be disappointed.
