Great Food and Atmosphere

I loved the sushi! Reasonably priced. The food is beautifully prepared and worth the try. You'll want to return again and again. One of the best sushi places in Buffalo. The only thing not to their favor is the place is small.

The sushi here is really good and service was good as well. My favorite roll was the shrimp tempura and smoked salmon roll. They were not extraordinary or anything but still good. This restaurant is pretty small so my date and I sat right at the sushi bar which I did not mind but others may. I don't think it... More

this restaurant is extremely small. They do not take reservations. We were told a 45min wait, but waited over an hour and a half. The sushi was decent, but not extraordinary. Tofu gyozas were my favorite.

Ok, I realize the seating is limited and a party of 6 on a Friday night is a challenge. So, when they told us it would be about an hour I asked if that was realistic. I was assured an hour would be plenty of time ... So, we ventured next door for some cocktails. That was actually delightful ..... More

Came early evening. Given misleading wait times by hostess (40 mins turned into almost 2 hrs..in the meantime we watched staff attempt to seat their friends who walked in, in front of many others who had been waiting for a very long time) when we were finally seated the food and subsequent service was mediocre. Will not hurry back here.

This a a great little restaurant. There is probably seating for about 25 people, so space is limited. We read a lot of other reviews and arrived shortly after 5 pm and were lucky enough to be seated at a table. The wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the items on the menu. The sushi was delicious and very... More

Kuni's is a popular place. Unfortunately it is small. However service was excellent. We ordered about 6 different things each was better than the last. The prices were reasonable.

Nice small place that came as a surprise. The place was recommended by a friend and we took the opportunity to visit on Thanksgiving Saturday. We (a party of 3) sat at the sushi bar (only place available right away) and had some chats with the crew as they prepared sushi led by Kuni himself. More then 3, I would... More

I really enjoyed fresh sushi, sashimi, and a bowl of hot udon with my friend. In Buffalo, I personally think Kuni's is one of the best restaurant you can enjoy Japanese with your friends or girl friend in a cozy and bright atmosphere. But you would rather find other Japanese restaurants if you want to enjoy Japanese food with your... More
