This place has more than just Japanese food. They have the usual tempura, lots of sushi & sashimi choices. They also have some Thai food. Nice to have the option. The server was friendly & efficient. There were 4 of us & we all ordered different things. Everyone was satisfied with their food. I had the shrimp & veggie tempura - very good. My wife had the Pad Thai, which was also very good. We spend our summer in upstate NY & although this was a 20 minute drive from where we stay, we have friends in this town & may be back.

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 quality of food. Of course, it got so popular, it had to expand and now has several tables and plenty of space. There is a wide variety on the menu, everything is extremely fresh and beautifully prepared. My favorites are the avocado salad and age tofu. My granddaughter introduced me to the Spiderman rolls (her favorite). The tea has that smoky, deep flavor of the best green tea. You might not find such perfect Japanese food outside of New York City. And the price is ten times more affordable.

Non-traditional Chinese meaning forget sugar and heavy sauce. Many many vegetarian and vegan choices. This restaurants delivers!! Family owners are friendly and responsive. A very very welcome not only to Chinese menus, but to vegetarian/vegan/low fat cuisine, not to mention Chan's vice like monopoly on American Chinese food. Eat there, do take out, have delivery - make this the #1 restaurant in town!

I was recently here for a birthday dinner with my family. It was a very nice experience. The waitress was helpful, the food was good. There was a nice variety of food for everyones' tastes. The sushi was freshly made and they kept the place clean. There was a nice variety to pick from on the Sushi as well as other foods. I thought everyone had a good experience and a good meal. We did not feel rushed and the children were treated well by the staff. We will definitely go back again.
This little place is tucked in a strip mall on Rte. 55 in Poughkeepsie and is an unexpected hidden jewel. New to the area - they are clean, reasonable and offer the freshest and most beautifully presented sushi around. The ambiance is unremarkable - the usual expected oriental decor - rather spartan but definitely clean. We've been several times already and have not been disappointed. There are many different offerings of sushi, sashimi and tempura with a great selection of appetizers. The King Kong roll was heavenly - others in our group have been thrilled with Spicey Girls, Godzilla and the sashimi. Nothing has disappointed including the salads with the ginger dressing. FYI - There's currently a $25. gift certificate for $10. you can get on Restaurant.com. A delicious experience!

I visit this restaurant at least 2x a month. This is a very consistent and good sushi place in Wappingers. They have Happy Hour every day from 3-5:30 where many rolls and appetizers are discounted. This is my favorite sushi place in Wappingers.

This is a great small place to get some sushi as well as other menu options. They also have lunch box specials. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly. If you have a large party you may want to make reservations. They also have great hot meals like shrimp teriyaki.

I have gone to Kobe Hibachi three times now and the staff used to be horrific and rude. Now, from the way I was treated, it seemed a lot better than the attitude that I have gotten from them in the past. Now, for the hibachi. The hibachi chefs are wonderful and treat you very nice. They also really CARE. They take the effort to perfectly aim the vegetables for the mouth throw, and did the longest knife twirling spinning I have ever seen of all of my hibachi experiences. The food was great, very salty, but done to satisfaction(medium rare) which is something that not all hibachi places succeed in doing. Overall, especially on a cold winter day, this is a great, reasonably priced hibachi place for your meal.

Not bad, not great.... it's one of the few sushi places in the area (relatively speaking). The reputation is very mixed on Bonsai. I was not particularly moved either way.

Stopped in for dinner Friday night and glad we did. Charming restaurant and decor with friendly staff/service.We ordered the scallion pancakes (yum) and an Alaskan sushi roll to try and both were excellent.Dinner I had the Singapore Noodles, I did not love it but I had opted to try something new. It was a bit dry and a bit salty for my taste. My husband had Panang curry that he requested mild, and it did not disappoint. I just made the wrong choice for my palette, but will come back for sushi and definitely other items on the menu which sounded delish! Especially the walnut chicken and chicken w/ mango.And lastly, the presentation of the food is simply beautiful.We'll be back.
