I have eaten many times, but for some reason they seemed a bit out of sync today. The food was delicious, but the service was off a bit. I have always enjoyed this place, and will still visit, but today was less than the 100% that they normally deliver.

The place is very busy - call and make a reservation. Portions tend to be larger here. Try different sushi rolls. All of them are beautifully prepared. The spicy miso soup was great. Calamari was slightly overlooked.

It's a bit a surprise to find such a popular place in such a sleepy street mall. With probably a half of the stores in that mall vacant Amakara clearly stands out. It is always packed and super busy. What's the secret? Basically it's the food and the feel. The put some interesting twists on the traditional rolls and they... More

We arrived in Dublin, CA to dine at a Japanese restaurant named Amakara. Being a bedroom town far away from San Francisco, we assumed this was going to be the typical quasi-Japanese restaurant with typical American style fare serving pseudo-Japanese meals. While the portions were large according to American dining expectations, we were pleasantly surprised with the first dish to... More

Right off the top, if you are looking for a quiet, smaller, more romantic place or just to have some business conversation, then you are choosing the wrong place. This restaurant is large and seems hectic on the 3 occasions we have been there. Aside from that, you will likely enjoy the wide variety of food and the way it... More

Was in the area for a 4 day business trip. One of my coworkers recommended it. Tried it on a tues night for dinner and was shocked at how busy the restaurant was. Was able to sit at the bar without a wait. I decided to try the poke, hamachi appetizer and the scallop lemon roll. I enjoyed all three.... More

This place is awesome. For me, this is the best sushi place in Pleasanton. We were five in the group when we went here and ordered quite a number of different rolls to share with. I enjoyed every single bite!.... until the tab came. it was really expensive. our tab costs us almost $200 (including tip) for 5 guys with... More

The sushi is the best we've had in Dublin. The fish is fresh and the sashimi salad can only be recommended. Come early on weekends otherwise you'll have to wait. The wait is worth it though

I absolutely love Amakara! The Spicy Sesame Seared Tuna and Lemon Salmon are so good that I rarely manage to deviate to try new Amakara Originals. Always fresh, creative and enjoyable. The good news / bad news is that it is always crazy busy which means you have to be prepared to wait but seeing how busy it is you... More

We love this place. We have been coming here since they first opened and the quality of the food, especially the sushi has always been excellent and very fresh. We love to take people there who visit us from out of town. The only thing we wish they would do is take reservations for parties under 6. It it always... More
