This was our favorite place years ago. But unfortunately, it has changed for the worst! Teriyaki chicken was burnt; the cucumber salad was overly sweet; the house salad came with the worst ginger dressing I ever tasted: it was very liquidy, with a mayonnaise like base, and a lot of sugar in it. We shall not come back.

There are hot dishes from the kitchen that will delight as well as a wide range of sushi and sashimi. The variety and inventiveness of the sushi rolls is dazzling. The staff is friendly and attentive and the whole place just radiates warmth.

Completely overrated. People around here must be desperate for sushi. Average at best. Go to Kingston if you can to a couple of places that serve much better sushi.

Our go-to sushi in New Paltz, always consistent, always yummy and fresh and the staff is simply so sweet, makes you feel like family.

This is one of my fav restaurants in New Paltz. Tiny inside, but in the Summer they have a patio that has significantly more seating outside. I went there last night and once again the food was delish. Def try the Salmon Collar its basted with soy, garlic, ginger and teriyaki then charred on their broiler, very rich and awesome.... More

Dinner for 4 was delightful. The restaurant is family owned, and the atmosphere is truly authentic Japanese. Open space in a small setting, which works really well. A variety of sushi, tempura and noodle dishes were exquisite. Prices were extremely well balanced. I'm a stickler for finer dining, and Hokkaido didn't disappoint!

My family and I visited for lunch today. Service was very good. The sushi, however, was very variable, from tasty and fresh to not so tasty and fresh. I left wishing that I had eaten at one on the brewpubs nearby. Maybe their strength is in cooked dishes, which were also available. My family liked the décor.

I've always ordered my meals to go. The sushi is yummy and there are lots of options. Seaweed salad is really good. A little pricey, but will still continue to go there.
