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.

Just great food! A model of perfection. Kuni is the master of his craft. Beautiful traditional Japanese cuisine.

My wife and I eat sushi everywhere. Kuni's is top notch. It has it all, great atmosphere, delicious food presented beautifully, lovely waitstaff. We have eaten here dozens of times and it is always rock solid. Pro Tip - no reservations are accepted but there are 2 good bars within 50 feet so show up, give them your name and... More

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, especially the eel and seaweed salad, but that's all I'm gonna say about the meal.... 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

In the midst of packing for a big move we decided to takeout from Kunis. The order was ready when we came to pick it up. the service was friendly and efficient. The Sushi when we got back to the apartment was fresh and tasty. As always with Kunis we were not disappointed.

One of my favortie sashimi spots, they also have a nice menu for other sushi rolls and dishes. Parking is a nigtmare there is no lot. The location is really tiny, At times you feel like you're sitting ontop of other people, but the fish is worth it. A great selection of Sake. The exterior of the building is kind... More
