I have eaten "in" and also ordered "out" many times. All have been excellent experiences. The Manhattan Rolls are fabulous! Since they have a crispy topping, they can arrive a little less crispy than when dining in because they "steam" a little in the container during transport. Regardless, I never miss the Manhattan Rolls. It is a great hidden gem on the UES. M

Akita is great. The food, the atmosphere, and the service are all fantastic. I've eaten here for the past 2 years and actually rank it in my top 3 sushi places in the city. A little pricey for being on 91st street, but the rolls are great and the dining experience is always great!

I've been ordering from Akita consistently for 3 1/2 years. They always give great service both in person and if delivered. They give extras, like fruit with your meal. The rolls are always inventive and they frequently have special rolls in addition to their regular menu. The sushi is always very fresh and tasty.

You shouldn't write "do not order delivery" simply becuase you have had bad expereiences with this place. According to your post, you should have written "do not order delivery if you have special dietary needs". Not everyone does, and a lot of these small places aren't accustomed to dealing with them. I'm sure they didn't mean any harm. As far as I'm concerned, you only had one bad experience ordering the one where they didn't send the complimentary california roll. They offered you two for the next order, so it appears they're taking care of business just fine.

We ordered delivery from this restaurant three times in the last couple of months, after our favorite sushi place closed. My wife is allergic to ginger and each time we ordered, we made it very clear that there can be no ginger in the order at all. On each occasion, ginger was put into the order and was touching the sushi. The first 2 times, we let it go and my wife did not eat any of the sushi that was close to the ginger. Tonight, not only was there ginger all over the sushi, but the food took over 1 hour to arrive and they did not include the free California Roll that is advertised on their menu. While I understand that the roll is free, it still factors into the amount of food we order. When my wife called to complain, the woman actually laughed at her and said that they were very busy and would not be replacing any of the food soaked in ginger and would not even be bringing us the California Roll (she said she would send us 2 rolls next time). Needless to say, we will not be ordering from them again. It is unfortunate because the food was actually pretty good.

order from here all the time, and have never found the fish fishy - and as a long time new yorker have eaten sushi all over the city - the positive reviews are not just a UES thing - this is consistenly awesome fish, if slightly unimaginative. i think they outdo the much hyped poke on the basic rolls - again, not innovative sushi but incredibly good basics.

Best sushi in nyc. in my opinion. I love the specialty roll. They need open one on the upper west side . only east side in the service. they definitely rush you here . give us a chance to enjoy the great sushi,
