We had early dinner on a Saturday. Food was fresh and plenty. Shabu Shabu was also included. It was fun. For NYC, the price was ok. If you prefer quality, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for quantity, you pick...More

So we went to ichi umi this trip because years back when we visited New York, this place was great! Good food, great service. However, sad to say food has gone bad. The food choices they have is not worth the price you pay. I...More

Well prices for NYC,,, decent selection of food... this place seems to always be busy... the better food options usually go very fast since there is no portion control - some people grab large portions and don't understand the concept of leaving some for others......More

Huge buffet, with sushi, sashimi and hot options. Food quality is nice, but as a buffet, there is no protection from cross pollution if you have someone in the party with a food allergy the way it is organized. Kids over 4 1/2 feet in...More
