    Be realistic, it is a buffet so if you're looking for the highest quality sushi in NYC you will certainly not find it here. Anyway, food is really good and the quality price-ratio is excellent.

    They have very fresh fish and on occasion, even have uni! Just beware of that one person that takes all the oysters without any regard for anyone else at the buffet.

    Best all you can eat buffet in the city! The sushi is decent and they have a variety of other kinds of dishes including crab legs, shrimp, fish, shellfish, beef, chicken. Dinner has the better stuff.

    Craving for sushi or asian food? Go to Ichi Umi! Great lunch buffet only 18$! So many different dishes you won't be able to taste all of them! And the food is just absolutely delicious! 🍣👅

    Pretty pricey but a great choice for food! Kids only eat free or discounted based on height, there's a crudely made ruler along the wall near the host. Food is eh quality but variety makes up for it!

    This place is every sushi lover's paradise. Plates and plates of sushi trays of various variety. They even have a dessert aisle! I don't have much of a taste palate, but the friend says it's yummy.

    Come here if you are looking to eat some serious sushi! Also available is unlimited crab legs, oysters, desert, and anything you can possibly imagine. One of NYC's best kept secrets!

    Dinner buffet. Wow. Tons of food selection. But if u want the snow crab, u have to be fast enough and use some skills. Tons of oysters and it's fresh. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Forget all your judgments about Japanese “all you can eat”places. In Ichiumi you will find a huge counter, endless fields of very fresh sushi, with an impressive assortment.
  • Armand D.
    Weird schedule. Open for lunch then closed in the afternoon, then open again for dinner. If you're looking for a late lunch, forget this place. On the plus side, the best AYCE sushi buffet in NYC.

    Pricey on weekend nights. Variety of seafood. Fresh raw oysters, stuffed mussels, clams, crabcakes. Yakitori, lots of sushi. Ramen, udon, teriyaki. Lots of desserts. Crepes ok.

    The sea bass is outstanding, the crab cakes are great, cold snow crab legs too. The sushi is quite good as well. The new dumpling oven was fun. Take a pass on the deeserts as they are all frozen an

    The lunch buffet here really isn't worth it- they hold a lot of the yummier sushi back for dinner, which makes sense economically but I if I'm paying for a sushi buffet I expect more variety >__<

    Not worth it for lunch. There's better quality for a cheaper price at any other sushi lunch special. You'll also be fighting for the popular sushi with people who have no consideration for others.
