“Amazing sushi and specialty dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The jellyfish is a special treat. And make sure you try the hot, hot, hot seafood salad. It's comprised of raw salmon, tuna, spanish mackerel and octopus all mixed together with hot spices.

“Best sushi in Buffalo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Buffalo's best for years! Never disappoints, consistently good. Great service and ambience; worth waiting 90 minutes to dine in this small, no-reservations-accepted establishment

“The best Japanese restaurant I've ever been to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

This restaurant is just awesome. I love Japanese food and I've tried many places before. Kuni's is simply the best. They serve authentic sushi and some special dishes, such as their grilled squid. The space is a bit small, but that's not a disadvantage at all. We felt comfortable, and service was quite professional. We ordered miso soup, seafood tempera, a small sushi combo and a whole grilled squid. Everything was perfect. My wife and I made a last-minute decision to go, and we were very glad that we made the best decision in our vacation. The sushi master found out we are Chinese, and talked with us about the current conflicts between Japan and China. We were both sad about the situation, and agreed that we should try our best to be friends rather than enemies. We'll leave Buffalo the day after tomorrow, and guess what, we'll visit again tomorrow evening:D

“My favorite sushi restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

I've been to this restaurant at least 25 times by now and it's the best. Very consistent, awesome sushi, and great employees. Not one complaint to say about this restaurant! Everytime my family comes to visit we always make a trip here so they can get their sushi fix. Great restaurant for all sushi lovers. I added a picture of what I got last night. So yummy!
