"Happy hour" sushi bargains at Akita in Hartsdale

Boy, wouldn't it be cool if other sushi places did this...

Akita, a new sushi place in Hartsdale on Central Avenue (next to Fed Ex/Kinkos/Men's Wearhouse), has kicked off what they call a "happy hour" sushi menu.

No, we're not talking about 5 - 6 pm, but literally the entire daytime up until 5:30 pm every day.

They have a pretty extensive happy hour sushi menu to pick from where the most expensive rolls are $3.99, and sushi is going for $1.99 a piece, with some other rolls going for $2.99.

Pretty insane.

Now of course you ask, how is the sushi? Well, let's just say it's good, solid, not spectacular. I wouldn't expect them to be winning any awards, but they hit at a pretty good average.

You can easily eat a sushi lunch for almost half the cost of anywhere else.

    They are actually in Scarsdale, not Hartsdale.

      You get what you pay for.

      Eat at Azuma for world class fresh fish or take out from any Japanese place near Central Ave. & Hartsdale Ave. Nijiya Grocery, Fujinoya.

      Better off eating in Shoprite or Hmart.

        Really mediocre food. Went for lunch today. Fish wasn't very good, poor quality and tasted watery. Also the price isn't as good as it seems. Small and thin slices of fish, cut poorly, and so the texture was poor. The kids (if they were 20 I would be amazed. They looked like they were still in high school) making the sushi really don't know how to cut the fish properly for sushi/sashimi. I say skip this place. Fujinoya up in Hartsdale blows it away. And the price is about the same, or even better.
