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

Reasonably-priced, excellent quality, compares very well with much more expensive sushi places in larger American cities. Even better is the relative quiet setting, where a person or group can eat without entertainment beyond watching Kuni and his assistant make meals. Highly recommended both for cost, quality, and service.

I recently moved back to Buffalo from 35 years in California. I asked friends what the best sushi bar in Buffalo was and they all said Kuni's. I have eaten sushi since 1982 in at least 100 places, mostly in LA and Kuni's is as good as any of them. The negative reviews here are ridiculous. Portions are small, duh,... More

I have had sushi all over the world including Japan. This is by far the best I have had. It's fresh and clean tasting. He also has wonderful salads. My favorite is the house with ginger dressing, but I know the steak salad with sesame dressing is delicious too. There are other foods for the non sushi people. The place... More

The sushi was fresh and delicious. It was crowded so reservations are necessary. Experimental Japanese food--delicious. Bar was good, too.
