THERES A REASON WHY ITS ALWAYS EMPTY WHEN YOU GO IN!!!. You would expect a sushi restaurant to have customers there. When I went in, it was just my group and a few other people. I ordered the food and it tasted HORRIBLE! Like it was left there over night and was warm and dry. Normally I LOVE sushi but I cant even finish it. The service was slow and they seemed rude to me. DO NOT GO HERE!!!! EVEN DURING ALL YOU CAN EAT!!! TO ME, THEY'RE TRYING TO GET RID OF ALL THE BAD SUSHI BECAUSE OF IT.
GReat FOod Good Service. Ive been here a few times with family mostly and of course with my lovellyyyyyy boyy. Prices are great and the fish always tastes extremely fresh. They are flexible with the menu and extremely clean with everything. Dont go in there expecting NOBU, its great for what its worth!
+++++++++++Sushi & Sashimi++++++++++++.
I eated here again and again and again ..........all FISH still FRESH, BIG, NICE LOOKING, CLEAN, SERVING FAST (I hate to wait hrs for food to come, I haven't eating at any other sushi place since I found out Funayama.
the waiter is always smile :), hello, thank you, how are you :)
AYCE at your own risk!. My friends and I felt really insulted and humiliated at this restaurant. Firstly, unless you are the type that can stuff yourself silly on whatever tasteless food that is brought in front of you, the AYCE option is not for you. The sushi portion was jumbo sized with thickly hacked slices of seafood over whale-sized mounds of stiff and cold rice. The sushi were mostly tasteless. As like many AYCE, you cannot expect perfection or high quality cuts. Afterall, it is all-u-can-eat. So, we decided we had enough of the stiff rice. We asked for our check. But instead of our waitress coming back with our check, the manager came running over to us as if she wants to prosecute us for the rice leftovers on our plates. We explained to her the sushi was not good and the rice was enormous and hard - definitely not freshly cooked rice. She was not the least bit apologetic and yelled at us for over-ordering. She gave us a lecture and sternly repeated their restaurant's policy where you must pay $3 for each piece of rice or fish that is leftover on your plate - no exceptions. It is ridiculous to think one can be at a restaurant where you are forced to eat something that you dislike or face surcharges and humiliation. This restaurant should have a disclaimer on their menu that reads, "AYCE at your own risk. We are not responsible for tasteless nor not-so-fresh food, you must still finish it somehow or pay additional per piece surcharge." We will never go back to Funayama again.
Great sushi @ great prices!. I have eaten here many times and so have many of my family members and friends. We ALL absolutely love this place - and we eat a lot of sushi and have checked out many restaurants before. The price you pay for the quality and portion sizes for the fish is great! And service has always been excellent for me!
Best Cheap Sushi!. This is my favourite cheap sushi place which I come to regularly. The quality is very good for the prices they charge and there is a high turnover so the food is always fresh. Try the special rolls, my favourite one is the dragon roll.
Cheap all you can eat -- but you get what you pay for.. They have all kinds of "all you can eat" specials, and even without a special, it's a lot of food cheap. But how do they afford that? They got to cut costs somewhere, and the quality suffers. The quality is on par with any other cheap asian food place; but who wants to eat sushi unless it's fresh?
Huge portions, friendly staff. I have eaten at Funayama over 30 times and the food is great. Its not NOBU but it is also about 1/20th the price. No frills for sure but for NY the quality-price factor is excellent. Keep your receipts or pay with cash though... the ownership has a habit of doctoring written receipt tip amounts to increase revenue.
big yummy portions, very nice service. I'm a happy semi-regular at Funayama. Huge fresh pieces of fish, two or three times the size I've seen at other places. Attentive but not intrusive service -- they do a good job of walking that fine line. I rarely get the AYCE, because the regular dinners usually fill me. When I'm really hungry, though, the AYCE is a great deal. The ambience is not bad, but it's a little plain. I agree with others that it could use a bit of upgrading.
an amazing find. I wandered into this place for the first time a couple weeks ago and have been spreading the word ever since. I don't know who had bad experiences there because every time I go the sushi is terrific, the service is attentive, and the bill is so low you walk out feeling like you pulled one over on New York. They could do a little work on the ambience department, but other then that the place couldn't be more money. If you live in the West Village and haven't tried this place yet you are missing something.
