Kuma's Corner is the BEST!
We hosted a rehearsal dinner for 80 people at Kumas this past weekend and it was fantastic. The food was delicious, plentiful and served hot. The service was impeccable. The manager, Lisa, is an extraordinary person to work with; she is well-organized and so accommodating. She anticipated our every need and no request was too difficult for her. She let us sample everything and anything we wanted, and helped us customize our menu. We were able to use their video system to display a montage, as well as play our own music throughout the restaurant. The acoustics and microphone provided worked well. The staff was great. We would not hesitate to recommend them, and actually we strongly encourage anyone having a party to consider having it there. They were absolutely amazing and I hope to work with Lisa and Kumas in the future. Thank you for making our night so special!Sent on 10/06/2019
