Very busy, very good!

Be prepared for a wait on most nights, but the beautifully prepared and presented options are many. Servers are spread a little too thin, judging from their hasty check-ins on my table. Noise level a little high for some, perhaps. We had the sashimi salad and salmon teriyaki and green tea ice... read more

This place is great!! My family has been here many times and never disappointed. Their Edamame is amazing. They boil it then put it on the grill then salt it and you can't stop eating it. The fish is very fresh and the service is wonderful The average price for dinner without drinks is about $30. We would have given... More

This is a GREAT place for sushi! It gets busy, so get there early and plan to hang out for a bit, you won't be disappointed. I've been here for business as well as with friends and family, great place for both...Enjoy!!!

I have not had a bad meal yet. The sushi is made with very fresh fish, their non sushi selections are very tasty. The only hiccup they have is the service. They can't keep up with the throngs of people that come to eat. Seems that their wait staff is always short which equals long wait at table service. The... More

A co-worker asked me to meet her at this restaurant and I didn't think too much of it. How good could a Japanese restaurant in suburban Dublin be? The answer - awesome. Incredible, fresh, inspired, creative food and the service was top notch. So good, I went back on Saturday night and braved an hour wait to eat there again.... More

If you are a weekend drinker who wants Japanese food with your alcohol, stop by here on the weekend, but be ready to wait for a table. Felt like this place caters to people who want lots of drinks, but we aren't that type. That said, the California rolls here were very fresh and some of the best we've had.... More

I've eaten at Amakara several times now and they have consistently provided great food and good service. My first visit was for lunch at the sushi bar and the lady that sat beside me was a regular, introduced me to the owner and made several recommendations - the best were $5 hand rolls that aren't on the menu but area...

I travel coast to coast and have sushi weekly. This location is in my top 10 now across our great nation. The atmosphere is so upbeat and friendly and energized. The staff creates this ambiance and their service level is even better. But lets get to the heart of this place...the food! The specialized rolls are done in unique ingredient... More
