I tried this restaurant at the insistence of my wife who, having spent several weeks in Japan, is much more familiar with what constitutes a decent sushi restaurant than I. this was my first sushi experience and I was not disappointed . Even though it was Friday night prime eating time and we hadn't booked, we were still given the... More

This is a great restaurant to visit for lunch or dinner. Value for money, excellent customer service, nice environment. There is a variety of food to order, sushi, maki or other teppanyaki dishes, whatever you like. Strongly recommended for everybody that loves the Asian/Japanese cuisine!

A big hype goes around about this place but I've had better. It's missing the authentic Asian cuisine flavors and it feels like you're eating at a franchise restaurant. Service can be good or bad depending on who's shift it is.

Went with friends for a meal. Service was excellent throughout our meal, very efficient and polite waitresses. Staters were large, freshly prepared & tasted lovely. Main meals tasty and well presented. Overall a lively relaxed experience

I'm writing this both to warn off others and as a reminder to myself not to go to Akakiko again, despite its convenient location near my office. I've been there a few times, usually for business lunches, and invariably either the food or service - often both! - are disappointing. On the plus side, the sushi is judged OK by... More

Do not ask for the delivery. It is completely different from the food they serve at the restaurant,so,if you have time it is a better idea to go there. The impression we have is that they are so busy that they do not have enough care in the preparation of the delivery food.Unless you are trying to save money,the restaurant... More

Food is overpriced and the portions are getting smaller as time pass. One kind of maki we order came with like two ingredients less than the description. Very noisy place.

The prawn Tempura was the worst I've ever had. There were huge batter shapes which poured out grease when squeezed with the tiniest prawn strips inside. The tom yum soup was missing the correct ingredient but still served without comment. When I asked why it contained no lemongrass I was told they didn't have any. The sushi was nice though.... More
