Missing Kinoko's marinated mushroom sushi I thought i'd give this place a try. While the décor is a delightful change and the staff was brimming with energy and having fun at their jobs, I could not and would not finish my meal there. The fish was subpar - fresh though it may have been, it was of obvious poor quality.

I am from California and am currently residing on the east coast, and I have been to many Japanese restaurants. Kumo is EXCELLENT considering the quality and price of the food. The quality is superb regardless! They are very generous with their portions: for sushi, the meat or fish extends well beyond the piece of rice. The chefs are also very creative they invent new dishes with unexpected combinations of food and they turn out to be delicious. Kumo is relatively new and somewhat tucked away, so don't be mistaken by its few customers!

Although the gyoza was very good, the sushi just wasn't all that good. It seemed bland and just didn't have the texture that you get at better sushi places. The service was particularly odd, however. We were asked almost everything our drinks, our order, how many in our party by two different people, as if the staff just doesn't communicate with one another. I'm not sure if there's much better in the neighborhood but I wouldn't recommend Kumo as a destination of any sort.

With all the "fusion" asian restaurants around making poor quality sushi (and weak Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese) , this Kumo shines. The maguro was very fresh and seemed to be a neck cut rather than tail. Spicy salmon roll was actually spicy! Even the to-go container was presented well.

I love this place! I go at least once a week. The sushi is always very fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is pleasant and the waiters are all very friendly. Great value, especially if you get some of the "combination" dishes. Highly recommended.

At first, we were dismayed that Kinoko, our favorite all-you-can-eat sushi joint, was closed for "renovations." But when we sat down to eat at the new establishment that had replaced it, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and value of the sushi. The portions are generous and the fish is quite fresh, as it is delivered every day.
