Ichi Umi is a few blacks past Korea town on West 32nd Street. It is an all you can eat sushi and assorted Asian dish buffet. I would rank this place among the best buffets that I have been to due to the sheer vastness of their menu and the decent quality of their food. As we know, buffets are a bit of a bastardized form of dining where the waitresses are only there to clean your empty plates and refill your drinks and all the food that you want is already sitting there, waiting. The food is good only if it gets busy because its guaranteed to be fresh, and packed it was at Ichi Umi.
It was about 6:30 pm at this point and when I entered the sushi restaurant i had very little recollection of Ichi Umi except:
-Good company with alumni brothers from all over the East Coast, if its one thing bros love, its food and lots of it, usually via buffet format
-Wow this place is huge
-Wow this place got packed quick after 8
-Wow lobster fried rice?? is that allowed??
-Our waitress is pretty kewl, but she is engaged she tells us…
no more food please i must rest
Overall, Ichi Umi was a good buffet.
