I've been meaning for a while now to report on this delightful restaurant on Main Street in Dobbs Ferry. It's our regular sushi stop, and we find the sushi to be consistently fresh and well-prepared. My absolute favorite is the appetizer Yellowtail Salano, which is a delicious knock-off of the Nobu style yellowtail with jalapenos, six nice slices of yellowtail in a yuzu sauce with jalapeno and cilantro. Their special rolls are yummy too (I like the one with spicy tuna and mango), and their spicy mayonnaise is one of the best renditions I've ever had...delciously different. If you let them know you're in the market for something unusual or special, they'll accommodate: I've had very good toro and uni. Just yesterday I stopped by for quick family lunch, and my standard sashimi lunch plate came with tuna, salmon, white tuna, snapper, and (a nice surprise) three delicate fresh raw sweet shrimps. My 8 year old daughter loves their bentos, which provide an astounding amount of food for the price: hers came with chicken teriyaki, a cucumber roll, gyoza, salad, rice, and soup.
Niji will always be my choice for sushi in Dobbs Ferry. It provides a serene experience and the staff is sweet and welcoming, in contrast to the crowded din of Sushi Mike's.
