The place is quite cozy ( a few tables), and they don't take reservations. Sushi/Sashimi is freshly prepared. This is by far our favorite spot for sushi in Buffalo.

They have the freshest, most delicious sushi and sashimi. The service was amazing and the food even better! Not to be missed!

Kuni's has VERY fresh sushi and only uses top-grade ingredients but I'm never very impressed with their selection or variety of flavor options. Everything on the menu sounded very plain and boring... there are other sushi restaurants I would choose in Buffalo over Kuni's.

The menu looked fantastic, and I did enjoy the meal, but the reviews were so hyped I was expecting more. It's a good sushi restaurant in Buffalo. If you've had great sushi, it's not going to knock your socks off. It's good! I enjoyed it,...More

One of the best Japanese restaurants in town, the specials are delectable though very pricey. It is small inside so be prepared to wait for a table, but worth it
