My daughter took us out for a 38th anniversary meal. I ordered 3 types of sushi. One was a Florida role. Per the menu, this role has 3 pieces. My daughter looked at her roles and noticed her roles had 5 pieces, and one of mine also. We asked the waitress about this. She got the manager, who came over... More

Bought 2 deluxe combos.. sushi and sashimi. Got it home and can't even eat most of it. Just disappointed, again. The sashimi was cut into blocks, not sliced and we just got some slimy stuff.. octopus I imagine. Live 2 miles away and used to love it but won't be returning for awhile, if ever again. Spend your money else... More

A little bit of everything. Their pho is really good. The Sushi is excellent and always bogo. Their fried rice is yummy too. Owners and staff are always welcoming and accommodating to your needs.

I went to Akahana for the first time a few days ago. I am a sushi addict...I eat sushi a few times a week every week. The fish was very fresh and I would definitely eat here again. The hot food was just so-so. Service was very slow, especially considering there were only 2 other tables occupied in the entire... More

My son and I try to go out for lunch once a month and when we do, it is usually during the week when he is working. So to make it easy on his lunch hour, we try to eat near where he works which is in Plaza Midwood. Last month, we returned to Akanaha Bistro for some sushi. They... More

I think the amount you get is sufficient . A must try is a drink that is served inside a pineapple ... it's pricey $15 with $8 refill... More

This place is good if everyone wants Asian - but some want sushi, some want Chinese, some want Vietnamese. Lots of seating - but often quite full. Good take-out.

Akahana offers a huge variety of asian food but does not do any of it very well. The service is often slow. The food is almost good, but always missing the care that would make it great. The sushi misses the mark. If you have to go here its not the worst but there are lots of tastier options nearby.
