    Kumo is our favourite restaurant in Brunswick East. The food is fantastic, service is excellent and the ambience is stylish and relaxing. I can't recommend Kumo more highly.

    The standard of food has dropped tremendously. We ordered the premium sushi platter and it was not premium at all. The Uni has gone bad. The sushi rice was dry and had a funky taste. Kids did not enjoy their bento boxes. Service was good until we asked for the bill. Waitress gave us a look when we said we will pay cash (she was hoping we used card because she had a credit card terminal on her, and did not want to make another trip to get our change). Not acceptable!!! The only saving grace is their crab fried rice, it was super delish.

    Beautiful interiors and really great vibe. Food was pricey for the quality and quantity. Staff were also not familiar with menu, when ask question on specific dishes. Cocktails were delicious …
