Very good sushi in a just ok atmosphere.

Sushi was not the best ever, but really good nonetheless. They have an amazing variety of rolls, so there's definitely something for everybody's taste. The negative is that the interior seems to be designed by a 7-year old. Full of drawings etc. Although cute in some way, not really appealing at... read more

As you walk into the restaurant you immediately get the feeling of being at your favorite local spot. The staff greet you with a warm welcome in Japanese and are very friendly and helpful navigating the specials and normal menu items. The creativity of the chef is abundantly apparent in the many different and unique sushi roll combinations. We ordered... More

The quality of sushi at Akaihana is solid, we have never had a bad roll. They have good appetizers, with healthy portions. If you want crazy combinations of ingredients in your sushi rolls, this is the place to visit. They get very creative with their rolls! They also offer tons of options - it would be difficult to try all... More

My boyfriend and I love this place! We always go for happy hour or reverse happy hour so we can get the best deals. All we have ever gotten here is sushi. We adore theirs so much (for both the deliciousness and the value) we haven't even checked out the rest of the menu! The fried California rolls are always... More

Not overly fancy however, the sushi is good and if you go during lunch and happy hours, the prices are half of regular prices. Good place to have lunch. Be careful and watchful of hours as they open later on weekends.

Finally some real crab in the rolls. Loved the chef, he was attentive and full of suggestions. The Rainbow roll was pretty darn large, eight large pieces at maybe $8.25, a tasty dinner sushi special with 7 pieces and miso soup only $12. But the quality was very good. Our new sushi place. It's in a strip mall but no... More

Small little local place. No one it's here to be glamorous, just eat good sushi. Service was prompt, friendly and genuine. Will be coming back.
