A very nice, family-run Japanese restaurant in an unexpected location. The service was fast and efficient, the staff was very friendly, and the food was excellent. The miso soup was flavorful without being overly salty. The ginger salad dressing was delicious. And the hibachi salmon was deliciously paired with brown rice and a variety of vegetables. Highly recommended!
I am so relieved to find decent sushi in Central New York. The menu is salmon-heavy, which makes me quite happy. The prices are far more reasonable than most eateries, which is especially rare for sushi! You can sometimes even get uni here. The unagi was hot, tender, with that tiny bit of crisp. The salmon was generous. The crazy salmon roll is quite satisfying as well. Editing to add more: Hands down the best sushi in Central New York. All ingredients have been fresh and high quality every time. Everyone who works here is incredibly kind- they once even helped us jump our car! Their rolls are delightful. The rice is seasoned perfectly. The fish is fresh and delicious. I especially recommend the salmon belly and the yellowtail! Sometimes they get in fresh uni, which is a delight. Try it on top of a sea scallop! They are very flexible with substitutions or leaving out rice. Their plating is beautiful and masterful. While I was there today, some guy came in, claiming he was given a roll with bad, old food in it. The staff apologized and offered to remake it for free. He refused. He demanded cash, and they asked for a receipt. Then he claimed someone else got it, so he didn't have a receipt, but wanted his money back right then and there. It's a pretty common scam, honestly. I've NEVER had a single piece of bad food here. Not once. I think offering to replace it or to refund with a receipt is personally reasonable, so if this guy rolls up blasting them, take it with a huge rock of salt. Anyway, Ocean Sushi of Oneida is honestly the only sushi place in want to go to in central New York. It is vastly superior to any other place I have tried.
Very clean, friendly and skilled cooks. Everything looks delicious, and they are so nice and quick. Great place to eat, 10/10 recommend.
Have eaten here several times, always good food and service. Would recommend the summer roll and volcano roll. Very refreshing. I wish there wasn't avocado in so many rolls. I like avocado, but I don't want it in everything. Also wish there were more veggie options for rolls, personally I like seaweed salad rolls, and daikon rolls. Not complaining, the food was very good. The staff were attentive and polite. Just things I personally enjoy . Great attention was given to plating, it was decorative and fun. And it's local, always a plus. Vegetarian options: Would like to see seaweed salad, and daikon, used in more rolls.
Stopped by on our way to Verona. Very cute place and the food is excellent.
Excellent food and service! Highly recommend!
If you ask yourself - "Can I fresh, delicious sushi in downtown Oneida?" Our answer is YES! We tried the monkfish liver, not for everyone but my husband liked it, and our rolls were beautifully presented and very delicious. Service is quick and efficient. They seem to do a good take-out business too. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
