Was recomended here by a chef neighbor. This is a great little Japanese restaurant in Schenectady. The ala carte sushi is super fesh and special rolls above and beyond expectations. My friend was very happy with the dumplings, an order of seaweed salad, and some other kind of roll. Highly recomended!!

The sushi and hot meals here cost from 10-15$ and though it seems pricey for students and lunch-eaters looking for quick take-out meals, it's a lovely restaurant to take the time and sit down and savor the attentive and friendly service, the home-made decor, the personal greetings at your table from the chef, and the delicious authentic Japanese food. It's... More

Every one in the family has a favorite meal at Mari's--sushi and sashimi are routinely excellent thanks to Hiro,others prefer the teriyaki or tempura. Atmosphere is happy and service is friendly. We love it and go often.
