Food Fight: Best Sushi in the Villages

A weekly column surveying the best of Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Ardsley, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.


So maybe it was the hot sauce and the Super Bowl and the beer talking, but our . Now we're onto the highly crafted delicacy of sushi. 

People either won't touch the stuff or they love it dearly. If you love it, you surely have a strong opinion where you will or won't go to get your Japanese fix. 

We want you to nominate the restaurants in Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Ardsley, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow that you think serve the best sushi.

  • Post your nominations in the comments section. 
  • Then, we'll post a poll on Saturday giving you the option to vote for your nominees.
  • Voting will stay open through Monday morning, when we'll post the results!

Don't forget to nominate and vote for your favorite sushi spot!

(And feel free to upload photos of you and your friends eating, or maybe just the sushi itself which is often very photographic. iPhone images allowed...even encouraged.)

Let the sushi fight begin!

Gotta nominate Sushi Mikes. My friends and I were die-hard Sushi Man customers (in Ardsley), but now that they've closed, I'll nominate Sushi Mikes.

Sushi Mike's is very good but my favorite is Wasabi.
Krista Madsen February 09, 2012 at 09:47 PM
I'll be SH-centric and vote for SH's Wabsabi!
Doug Schneider February 09, 2012 at 09:53 PM
Without a doubt, Sakura Garden in Hastings

Wasbi by far has to be the best sushi around, fresh , price, and gets your orders right, that's important, hmmm might have order some over the weekend,

haru hana in irvington cuz its family owned and run, and such a freak show
Shari Rosen Ascher February 10, 2012 at 11:18 AM
Nothing even comes close to Sushi Mikes. Its not only the best sushi in the Rivertowns, it is in the top 3 sushi places in New York! We have friends who visit from the city who can't wait to get sushi from Mike. Its not just that the fish is so fresh and delicious, its also the rice. I don't know what he does to it, but it melts in your mouth!
Lizzie Hedrick February 10, 2012 at 11:21 AM
I agree with Shari. You northern Rivertowns Folk need to come south once in a while!
Lsanto February 10, 2012 at 02:19 PM
Haru Hana in Irvington is the Best!!!! Creative Rolls and the freshest sashimi. Also the best shrimp fried rice! Worth the wait.

Can't believe that this is even a discussion. Sushi Mike's is an absolute. The other places are good, but Sushi Mike's is simply the best. There is a reason that the other places have plenty of seating on week nights when Sushi Mike's is crowded.

never heard of it. ill have to try.
Krista Madsen February 10, 2012 at 03:26 PM
I didn't even know we had all this sushi! I will come "down." I promise

Okinawa in the Arcadian Shopping center.
Josh February 10, 2012 at 03:41 PM
Wasabi in Sleepy Hollow is by far the best sushi, price wise. It's fresh, great quality sushi. And for a bit more in price and quality, sushi mike's is delicious.
Jay February 10, 2012 at 04:41 PM
Sazan, by DeCicco's in Ardsley. It is by far the best sushi I've had in Westchester or elsewhere for that matter. I hesitate to mention it because it is unknown to most.
gillian driscoll February 10, 2012 at 05:27 PM
sakura garden is the best
Jessie Moon Landivar February 10, 2012 at 06:14 PM
SUSHI NIJI in Dobbs Ferry gets 5 stars, try their Niji Special Roll- there's absolutely nothing like it. In Sleepy Hollow go to WASABI. Excellent customer service and yummy rolls. www.thestampact.etsy.com
Lisa Klipstein February 10, 2012 at 09:34 PM
There is no question....Sushi Mike's is the best! I have had sushi in countless establishments, but none compare.
PETE February 10, 2012 at 11:38 PM
sakura gardens best pick for rivertowns. Chef Alex can create absolutley anything!!!!!!
PETE February 10, 2012 at 11:40 PM
PETE February 10, 2012 at 11:44 PM
I go there at least 3 times a week with the family its the best healthy food in the rivertowns
Ron Laufer February 11, 2012 at 03:10 PM
Wasabi is cheapest and friendliest but Haru Hana is by far the best. Sushi Mikes is good but don,t you think friendly people and atmosphere are as important.THink overall experience. Ron
Ron Laufer February 11, 2012 at 03:11 PM
I agree
Paddy Steinschneider February 11, 2012 at 04:58 PM
No one is friendlier that Sushi Mike.
T February 11, 2012 at 06:44 PM
I love Sakura in Hastings on Hudson. The food is great and reasonable. The staff is always welcoming and often gives you a surprise taste when you're a regular. The best!!!
Irene Dulin February 11, 2012 at 10:17 PM
H vote is for Sakura in Hastings. Great food and great staff!!! Irene d

All of you commenting are voting in the (extremely non-scientific) poll, right? http://patch.com/A-qLrx (Non-scientific winner will be declared Monday. All you statisticians, remember this is all in good fun. (But did I mention sake bombs at Sushi Mikes???) Flaming sake. Gotta try it.
Morris Levigny March 14, 2012 at 02:15 AM
Does anyone know what happened to Yang (The Don Rickles of Sushi) from Wasabi in Sleepy Hollow?
