    If you are hungry then it's perfect for you. But the quality is not as good

  • Victor C.

    Not worth the price, no eel sushi, barely any fruits, food doesn't get replenished fast enough.

    Be very careful at this expensive restaurant. Doesn't look like they have any sneeze guards and clientele are pretty much dirty. The food did me in. Not cool.

    All you can eat seafood buffet - better quality than most buffets.

    Great eat all you can!!!

  • Konstantinos M.

    The perfect place if you are looking for a mix of Asian food

  • Lonnie K.

    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.

    Lonnie Kahoe · April 21
  • Alberto D.

    All you can eat including oysters, crab legs and sushi! Not fancy but good value for money.

  • Sergio G.

    Really large buffet

  • What's Good Here

    Wide selection of entrees at this all you can eat buffet. Quality is also a notch above.

  • Eduardo M.

    Best Japanese buffet I've tried! There's so much to eat and everything is simply delicious!

    Eduardo Mares · February 12
  • Maxim S.

    Not so tasteful, but good choice. Desert is bad - only fruits were good.

    Maxim Semirenko · January 18
  • Magda S.

    Not too much of a nice place for the money you are supposed to spend there. The service is mediocre and food also not quite above the average. Definitely one to skip.

    Magda Simko · January 13
  • Dmitriy S.

    Variety of fish in sushi, fried or uncooked state

    Great happy hour ❤️ go downstairs for the DJ and great drinks !

    Faves: scallops, cuttlefish, tuna tataki, lobster salad. Weekday lunch is cheaper!

    Never dined here, but I go for their underground bar (left staircase when you enter). Loungey vibe and good crowd.

    Bad place! We came at 2 pm , there was a bad assortment of rolls. Food was insipid. Cola smelled of bleach. And bad service, the waitress only brought the drinks and demanded for this a more tips

    Great selection of food.

    This is my version of heaven. Try everything. Twice.

    Pretty decent selection of sushi and hot food but expected more. Shame on not having soft-serve machine which is like a BUFFET STAPLE. Beware of the elbows thrown while waiting for salmon sashimi. 😳

    Great food! Amazing service!

    Great stuff! The oysters were awesome! Big lobster only for 7$ !! Thanks

    Алина Алина · August 31, 2014
  • 💎T

    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.

    💎T · August 19, 2014
  • David W.

    Sushi is fresh and tasty

    David Wang · August 19, 2014

    All you can eat sushi. I thought that didn't exist any more, but it does.

  • Wil J.

    Expensive, but worth it! Sushi, greens, fresh shellfish, fresh fish -- it's all here

    Wil Jeudy · May 25, 2014
  • Burce E.

    A large variety of food at the buffet but not of good quality in general...

    BEWARE!! Friday here is considered a Weekend, so you get charged MORE!!!

    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! 🍣👅

    $5 Patron shots in the cellar.

    Cheap bar downstairs. Food sucks

    Moses Lee · July 17, 2013
  • Anne W.

    Stay away. There are a ton of sushi restaurants in NYC with the same price point. And you won't get hair in your food. Disgusting

    Anne Wong · June 17, 2013
  • Cici Y.

    As an Asian myself, this is not a good place to be.

    Cici Young · May 27, 2013
  • Freda T.

    Be careful of the "compulsory" tip and being made to pay what they want to be tipped. Doesn't that contradict the whole tipping system?

    Freda Tan · May 21, 2013
  • Frances T.

    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 >__<

    Frances Tran · April 29, 2013
  • Steven M.

    The trick is having small plates ;-)

    Steven Montas · April 14, 2013
  • Franklyn B.

    Always worth the trip!
