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 you get what you pay for--but when you can't eat it...?

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 and will definitely be back!!!!

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

If sushi is not your thing, Akari still has a good selection of hibachi items. I usually go with family that knows good sushi and they enjoy it here. I tried some and it was fresh and flavorful. Be careful not to park in Metro-North spots during the commuting day or they will ticket you. Polite service. Give it a try.
