We came here with friends en route to another destination. Better than "good enough." Friend beef gyoza very tasty. Edamame fresh and hot. Enjoyed sashimi and sushi dishes...large quantity.

Hubby and I have passed this wonderful restaurant on many occasions but as it is a bit far from home, have never really made it there. So glad we did this past Friday night as my combination vegetable rolls and his sushi special were outstanding. We tend to be early birds but were curious about the Hibachi Rooms as they were filling up fast and it sure did sound like a good time was being had.

Will definitely return!

All food selections are presented beautifully like pieces of art. Tasty, fresh and attractive. Drinks pretty as well. A little pricey but worth it.

We have been to Akira a number of times since they opened. From dining room to the Hibachi tables (first time at the Hibachi tonight) - very kid friendly without loosing grown up appeal!! Fresh food, tender meats and awesome sushi. Just when we thought the chef at the Hibachi table was done spraying the oils and making flames, a grown-ups treat of saki is shot into your mouth from behind the table!!! In keeping with involving the whole family - water is dispensed for the kids and non drinkers. ��
Thank You for yet another awesome experience Akira!

Sushi pizza. Stop what you're doing and go get sushi pizza. Just right now, leave wherever you are and go get it.

Hibachi is also great, priced fairly (so are a bit much).

The staff is a lot of fun, places like this where theres a lot of engagement with the staff because you either dont understand the food options or they're cooking infront of you etc is important and they do a great job.

Once we waited a little while, they were very busy for lunch and we didn't mind even a little. We had enjoyed our soup to start and were comfortable in their very well decorated dinning room.. BUT the server ran over when he was free, said he was so sorry for the wait and dropped off a free sample of their special appitizer that week (so sort of jalepeno sushi concoction which was awesome). Went a long way. We won't be going anywhere else. Especially when you want to know you can trust the food at a place that serves raw fish.

A++, so good
