Everything about this place speaks of success- lines of waiting patrons put the door, a bar that is hopping with customers and a kitchen that looks so busy, they better be paying them double ! However the one thing I have not been able to appreciate as much is the food. In my opinion, it is average at best. The... More

Had dinner here with my sister on a Friday evening. Got there around 6 and was told there was a 45 minute wait. There was no parking in their lot, so we had to park across the street. Luckily, the wait deterred many, so we got seated at the sushi bar after 20 minutes. We had a pork belly appetizer... More

Today was my second time eating at Amakara and it was as good as the first. They offer some unique rolls. Everything I have tried has been really good. Very fresh. Get weird with it and try their Caprese roll. They had a Premier League match on TV too, for sure the best thing to offer on a Monday at... More

The place is crowded, and the music is a little loud, and you do have to wait for a table on most nights. That said the food is good for the area and the creative sushi choices were interesting while still being fresh.

Amakara is a great place to go and eat some well done, tasty and creative rolls and sushi. I also love, love their roasted edamame and the sesame chicken (if you are not into raw fish). There are two reasons why I don't go there as often as I'd like... First, it's always busy and there is always a long... More

Amakara is hands-down the best sushi in the east bay, and they accept the passport card for 20% off. The fish is always so fresh. The roasted edamame is a great starter if you have a little group. The sashimi salad is fabulous, but pretty big. I've never had a roll I didn't like. The cocktails are great, esp the... More

We were a group of 10 with reservations but you still need to stand in line to get in when they first opened. Located in a U-shaped strip mall with decent parking available and close to the junction of highways 580 and 680 so there are several offramp and onramp possibilities depending on where you are arriving from. The decor... More

Chose the place for a birthday get together. The ambience is very nice because it was a little dark, I loved the chairs. Our server was ok, very patient with us while choosing what we wanted from the menu. The Ramen was good, my sushi was ok. I was not that happy with the Amakara lunch special, my friend got... More

I went with a group of sushi adventurists, so we shared many rolls. It was a great experience and the staff was extremely helpful with selecting rolls based on preference.
