Trendy and Imaginative

LIke the creative, trendy, fresh food. I am sure the owner selected chefs and said go- create imaginative food and have fun. Everything is picture worthy that they bring you. Don't be afraid to try new things. Dislike the wait time and servers are not warm and fuzzy.

I decided to order takeaway sushi for my wife while she was catching up on computer work during her business trip to Dubln, Ca. Amakara came highly recommended for sushi and that's how I made it there last night. Good thing I had decided on take out, because the wait to dine in was at least 45 minutes long or... More

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 cream, all delicious.

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

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
