My husband and I joined two other couples who highly recommended this place just west of the Poughkeepsie train station. We had no problem parking in the (free) lot just outside the building. I ordered two different "special" sushi rolls: I liked the "Dancing Eel...More

This is where I go for sushi in Poughkeepsie. I've never had a bad experience here when I've taken out or eaten there. I'll continue to go here. Staff is friendly, would recommend to any sushi lover. It's right by the train so it's good...More

Stopped here for supper. Vegetable tempura consisted of large chunks of food--not at all bite size. More white potato than anything else. Coating was way too thick and doughy--had to peel it off. Partner's fish on sushi was mushy. Prices are fairly low, so maybe...More

We went here with some CIA students that were in the mood for sushi. It was very comfortable for a storefront location, you don't feel that it's a storefront once you're inside. The staff was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu.We had a wonderful time...More

Fresh sushi...big selection of different rolls. Friendly staff. Favorite sushi place...worth the 40 minute drive. Try the honey miso salad. Right across from train.

My favorite roll is a shrimp tempura + avocado inside with spicy tuna on top and Akari's Finasa Roll is the best yet!! I love stopping by Akari or ordering delivery. Their non-sushi items are great too I recommend the Yakitori chicken skewers

I wanted to recommend this little gem of a Japanese restaurant which is conveniently located right at the Metro North train station. It used to be just one room with a small sushi bar and if you walked in, you would never expect the fantastic...More

After reading reviews, we had high expectations for this restaurant. We were disappointed. Claiming to have never gotten sick after eating there isn't exactly a ringing endorsement, and I am not sure this is the best sushi restaurant in Poughkeepsie. Certainly isn't best in Hudson...More
