Sushi Village - 3250 Francis Lewis Blvd. Bayside, NY 11358 (718) 886-4733
You really have to be a sushi lover to appreciate what this restaurant has to offer. It's an all you can eat Japanese buffet restaurant that doesn't require you to get out of your seat at all. As soon as you sit down, your server will bring you a menu that lists a variety of sushi, special rolls and other dishes you can choose from. All you have to do is mark down on a sheet of paper what you want and they'll bring it to you as soon as your food is ready. Their menu has an extensive list of all the Japanese food you can think of; teriyaki, sashimi, udon, tempura, and best of all, fried ice cream. This place has got the works! The only thing that I can think of that's missing from their menu is ramen noodles. But then again after eating all that sushi, you won't have room for anything else.
Located right on the corner of Francis Lewis Boulevard and 191st street, the restaurant has a parking lot for its customers so you don't need to worry about finding parking. However it's rather small, so if you go during the weekend, it can get full really fast. Compared to other buffet restaurants like Harvest and Minado, Sushi Village offers a wider array of sushi to choose from. But don't expect to find snow crab legs and Peking duck on the menu. This is the place to go for sushi, if sushi is what you're craving for.
The restaurant has a nice and welcoming atmosphere. It's reasonably priced, the service is good, and most importantly, their sushi is fresh. If you're planning on ordering special rolls, I recommend the lobster roll. Make sure you come hungry so you have enough room for dessert.
Price: Reasonable $20-$25 PP
Appetizer: Shrimp Tempura
Main Course: Lobster Roll
Dessert: Fried Ice Cream
