Very very good food! A lot of food of any kind! We were there for lunch and my belly said thanks! Just in case: the prices change during the time of the day. So i suggest to go there for lunch, that is cheaper, about 18$.

Japanese buffet, lots of choices and fresh. Plenty of hot (cooked) food for people who does not want the raw stuff. Sushi selection was very good. Did not understand the wait, plenty of tables where available. But service was excellent, place was very spacious and the buffet table was easily accessible. Price was reasonable, will return.

I enjoyed my visit and certainly got my money's worth. Lots of variety, especially seafood. I would go back. It closes relatively early, but they warn you for last call.

This place is always packed. The sushi, sashimi and rolls are super fresh. They don't last. As they make them, you eat them. It is a buffet which has soooo much variety. If you like shushi, you'll love this place.

We went to Ichiumi after reading a couple of TripAdvisor reviews and must confess it'been a wise idea. Fortunately the restaurant was still open since we came in at 10.15 pm (in NY seems restaurant all close at 10 pm). The food was absolutely great, tasty and a big choice. Also the staff was friendly and efficient. Expecially Marvin made... More

Surrounded by so many Asian restaurants, this was close and convenient. After a long day of exploring we were grateful to have the option of a no-brainer, price fixed menu at $32 pp. Amazing selections, attentive service, a great meal for the price.

As the title says, Ichiumi in the past ( talking about three years ago) used to be a place with a great variety of food and great service. We went yesterday and as soon we got into the place, around 7:00pm, the restaurant was almost empty, me and my partner looked each other and we whispered “ it’s so weird... More

Visited here With family...was conveniently located. Great variety of different foods, but like with most buffets, the quality is low. Service was good, until the server watched me pay the bill & dictated to me what the tip should be. Total turn off. I understand that most people in the service industry make very little money & depend heavily on... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
