Hi everyone,
Im coming to New York on the 16th March from the UK and wondered if anyone could recommend any good all you can eat sushi restaurants?? I will be staying in North Times Square, but will happily travel out :-)
Thanks in advance :-)

    AYCE sushi is generally a bad idea. They tend to slice thin and serve a lot of rice and charge extra for leftover rice. Better choice would be to go to a mid tier place like Haru, Yama, Tenzan or that ilk and order a big combo platter and then supplement. Hard to spend more than $50 in those places that way unless you eat like a football team. You'll be way happier and get a lot more actual sushi.

    That said, if you must do and AYCE... try Kumo Sushi on 72nd and Broadway. One stop on the express train from Times Sq

        I suppose I gave more of a non-recommendation (about AYCE). There is a Haru on 43rd near Broadway. I'm sure others can chime in with other mid town faves in the $25 combo plate level. I happen to like Yama best from that group (and yes... there are many better places around but I am solely talking about the best and most filling for our AYCE desiring OP at a certain price point... so suggestions that she should change her mind and eat at Masa/Yasuda/Gari/Jewel Bako are off point... though if she wants to up the $$ a bit I might recommend Ushiwakamaru/Inase/Kanoyama... more, maybe double the $$ but well worth it and not crazy expensive)

          Some other mid tier suggestions are Sushiya on 56th St. bet. 5th & 6th which is walkable and Fatty Fish on 62 St. & 1st Ave if you will be on the Upper East Side. Those two in addition to the other ones mentioned are my favorites.

          You will find public transportation in NYC very convenient and pretty much any place in Manhattan is accessible. Have a great trip.
