Service is good, prices are great, sushi is so so. Good to go out with some friends because it's right on the square but I don't recommend it for takeout.

Flew in from California on my birthday to celebrate Christmas with family this year, and as a birthday gift was treated to Akeno Sushi take-out to ease my jet-lag and hunger. The food was amazing as it was still hot from coming miles away. I had a little of everything, as I love Dim-Sum (little dumplings and little bites). The... More

AH. MAZING. My coworker and I are in town on business and we love sushi. Between us, we ordered the sweet heart roll, spicy scallop roll, peanut and avocado roll, shrimp tempura and edamame. The tempura was the lightest fried shrimp, broccoli, and carrot, that I have ever eaten. The rolls are so fresh and the flavors were an absolute... More

We were visiting Wilkes and wandering around the neighborhood and found this spot. We had a nice assortment of rolls, prepared in front of you. The fruit/tea bubble drinks were an experience. Friendly and clean, worth a visit.

My friend and I had plans to meet at Katana, but they were closed for vacation when we got there. So we went across the street to Akeno. This was my second visit there and I enjoyed it. I had the sushi meal with the salad and soup. It came with a California roll and several pieces of sushi. It... More

A large tree covered the sign outside and was hard to find for someone that doesn't know the place exists. Also, the sign is the typical yucky yellow with red letters that looks like it won't be any good. The website suggested parking at the Y - which we never found. But, at 6:30 on a Saturday, we had no... More

I really love Akeno for the following reasons: very nice owners, fast & friendly service, very nice atmosphere and a unique sushi menu. This is the only place I know of locally that offers sushi rolls using banana, which I love! I feel they offer a lot of healthy vegetarian options which is a huge bonus for me. I eat... More

Like most sushi fans I only go to places that are really busy because you know the fish is fresh. I have been to this place several times... the food and the service are fantastic, but no one is ever in there! I really hope the downtown people realize what a gem this place is and quickly!
