Akebono's is no longer in business in Granite Bay. Haruka Sushi Bar is now located in it's spot. Haruka's is very good, fresh sushi.

Smallest portion of sushi I have ever seen, not real fresh at all and the service was horrible. Given whats around the area, this place is can't make it. I would rather drive 15 minutes to Mukuni that drive 3 minutes to this place.

A group of us went and enjoyed a wonderful sushi dinner at this little neighborhood gem. While it is not the best sushi place around, the food was good to very good. One concern: we ordered a bottle of wine and it came opened--I never like that! Miso soup was pretty flavorless, but the sushi and tempera dishes all tasted... More

We stopped by the Akebono Japanese Restaurant while out shopping in the Roseville, CA area and found it to be good. We had chirashi, which was very good and salmon, which was a bit dry. This restaurant has another location in Sacramento that is much better.

They offered teriyaki (what???) or "the mayonnaise sauce", which was terrible. The roll was smaller than most and it was $11.95.... More

If you're looking for a sushi place that has good offerings without the super-trendy atmosphere, Akebono is a good choice. We popped in for a quick lunch and nabbed an Ichiro and Akebono roll off the menu. Both rolls were awesome and the service was prompt. The ambiance isn't anything too noteworthy (not particularly enticing) but the area isn't exactly... More
