Frankly, I wouldn't expect such a poor service in a Japanese restaurant. Granted most servers were not Japanese, it doesn't give the excuse them to be snappy and unattentive. Food was nothing special either.

This is the only place where we had a pink lady which is basically a tempura roll with fish on top, chopped jalapeños, a unagi and spicy pink sauce. It is quite tasty and we order this roll every time we eat here. Very good...More

We go to Akira at least four times a month! One of my favorites is their Garlic Edamame, no one makes them as good as they do. Fish is always fresh, friendly service, order food to go and they have a large selection of sushi.

A local Japanese restaurant with nice ambience and great food. The variety of dishes and sushi on the menu made for tough choices. Service was excellent, and the restaurant was quiet enough for table conversation. I would recommend this to anyone with a yen for...More

We have been eating at Akira since they opened. They have a nice selection of sushi and their combination plates are always a favorite. Cold soba noodles are refreshing and great tasting during the hot summers! Tempura is light and crisp and fish tastes fresh....More
