I freaking love this place! Best sushi ever! Made with love if you ask me! Every friend of mine that never had sushi before I take them to Akida and they are all now sushi lovers! I always get great feed back from my friends about the food. The restaurant is small even though they recently relocated to a new... More

Akida's new location is now more centered in the fan, at 606 N Sheppard St, Richmond, VA. The menu and atmosphere, great services and overall ambience is the same or even better ... Still the best Sushi in town, I prefer the Unagi Don. The rolls and special rolls are incredible. Also try this place for lunch because here is... More

Was hoping it would live up to the good reviews but it just didn't. It was my husband and I for lunch. We love sushi and are always on the lookout for a good place in RVA. The good: The place is much cleaner and a bit bigger than their old location. The location is good, plenty of street parking... More

This sushi place was rated one of the best in Richmond, so we picked this one out of a list to visit. I was not disappointed. Located near Monument Street, my two colleagues and I were able to easily find parking. On the day we visited for lunch, we were one of the first few in the restaurant. The staff... More

The new place is just about the same size as the old one and the food is just as good. The number of different types of rolls is mind boggling. We had the soft shell crab appetizers which were a little over cooked. After that we stuck to the basics with a salmon skin, an eel and soft shell crab... More

Small little place, great sushi, good sake, good service. Friendly neighborhood "hole in the wall". One of my daughter's favorites.

Akida is a cute little neighborhood Sushi restaurant with fantastic service and yummy food. We went on a Thursday night and it was packed. We sat at the Sushi bar. The menu was diverse and the pricing was great. We ordered a sashmi bowl and their dinner combo. Both were delicious and a great value. The Sushi chefs offered us... More

Tooling around Richmond all day when we got a hankering for sushi. This little restaurant got nice reviews, so we decided to check it out. So glad we did. It feels authentic, and cozy. The staff was quick and attentive, the presentation was beautiful, and the sushi was very good. Parking is a little tricky, everyone in the area seems... More

Hidden in a corner that looks like an old garage, you walk in and you feel like you walked into a mom and pop restaurant in old Tokyo.. Quaintly decorated like an old Tokyo store. Food was excellent! Mom was in the mood for Chirashi and they had it. I felt like I wanted something spicy so I got the... More
