Best Sushi in the Hudson Valley

Love this place. Very fresh. The tuna is awesome as is the soba. The service is good and prices are normal for Japanese food.

Met a business associate for lunch in New Paltz. We each traveled over a half hour to get to Hokkaido. We each had a lunch special. One Teriyaki, the other Sashimi. We had a long meeting and the service was attentive...and not rushed in any way.

Hokkaido has never failed to provide a great meal when we need our family sushi fix. My entire family loves this place and sitting outside on the garden patio in summer-fall is very nice. The decor inside is very warm and welcoming despite the minimum size. Reservations are recommended in the evening as this place is a favorite with a... More

Great little sushi place in New Paltz. Always packed and very cozy inside. The rolls are not the most unique but what makes it so great is that their fish is so fresh. Get the salad with their orange dressing. The dressing is the most amazing and the salad has fresh strawberries that taste like they were just picked from... More

I've never had a bad meal here. It's always spot on and the specials are creative and good. It's small and popular so be prepared to wait on a Friday or Saturday night, but it's worth it!

Recommend making reservations. The place is quite small, however we were able to get seated right away. Nice selection of sushi, very fresh. Tho one in party got vegetable fried rice, looked good yet had no flavor. Stick with the sushi

Went alone and sat outside - nice little garden patio. Service was fine, atmosphere pleasant - I like that this place isn't right on the main strip and is a little off the beaten path, so to speak. My fish was very fresh and the roll I ordered was delicious (and enormous). I was a bit surprised after ordering a... More

I used to LOVE this restaurant. We had moved out of the area and I couldn't wait to get sushi there when we came up for a visit. What a disappointment! Service was the worst ever. My son did not receive his food until we were all done with ours. Our drinks were never refilled unless we requested it. The... More

I love this little place--great fresh sushi and excellent value. I particularly recommend the delicious clear mushroom soup, and try the oshingo (Japanese pickles) appetizer--a huge assortment of really interesting and delicious pickles! My boyfriend got a lovely little crab salad appetizer in half an avocado--scrumptious. Very charming atmosphere, polite servers, great experience overall. There's no other place in New... More
