I have been to Kuma Ani numerous times. I have yet to find a Sushi Restaurant that can offer the best tasting & freshest Sushi over and over again. I know for a fact that each day it is fresh. Never leftover from the day...More

I've done monthly lunch meetings here for the last few months, and have been pleased with the food, service, and and atmosphere. A bowl of miso, a couple of rolls, maybe some tea, and everything's fine. I haven't taken advantage of the "all-you-can-eat sushi" because...More

We ventured there for lunch & even though their "all you can eat" Sushi lunch is touted, we opted for other selections. My husband is a Sashimi eater, not Sushi. I had the Negamaki which was very flavorful & my husband had a 9pc. Sashimi...More

I went here once for lunch with a friend. I had the Udon Noodles (great) and she had the sushi. I tried some and was underwhelmed. It was good, but I've had better elsewhere.

Friendly staff people, good atmosphere and good fish. They could definitely do without the colored LED lights decorating some of the dishes, however. It makes things seem a bit tacky. Liked the long wooden benches with little throw pillows. Very good shrimp tempura, and yellowtail....More

We recently met friends at Kuma Ani for dinner and had another wonderful meal. The $21 sushi special is really a good deal. This is as good as anything you will find in New York City. The staff is very friendly and we always love...More

This is one of our favorite Albany restaurants. The cooks and servers are professional and very nice. We are regulars and the wait staff have our favorites memorized so it feels very homey to visit. Child-friendly and foodie-friendly. What more can you want!
