Super fresh sushi, awesome rolls (really big) and the best sashimi (nice, large pieces). A great restaurant for many years and still serving the best sushi. Enjoy....

Location-wise, it's kind of in the middle of nowhere. Price-wise, it's incredibly overpriced and I wasn't even sure how authentic it is. I got the chirashi bowl. It was tasty, but for $50...no. It's not that hard to cut up pieces of fish and put it on top of sushi rice. Admittedly it was fresh, but for $50, I expected... More

This place is really good. Although the prices can look a bit daunting on the menu, they are justified. The amount of fish you get on the rolls here is unbelievable, and the rolls are also HUGE! Worth trying if you are a sushi eater.

If you happen to around this part of the world MAKE sure you stop and eating sushi here. Get the tataki bowl with albacore, a srirachi bowl and a rainbow roll.

Like Foo Foo Tei, Akasaka is located in a strange neighborhood, across industries parked along a railroad track where you would find a burger caboose. Nothing like that here. Once inside, a paradise of fine japanese cuisine, with years of experience. The original owners are no longer greeeting you but their picture and sprits are still there. Make reservation, ask...

They do give you a lot of food for the money. The fish pieces are large and portions are huge however, I found the quality isn't up to par. Felt like they try to make up for the lack of quality with more food. However, that said, it is a nice little restaurant with friendly staff. I would return but... More

This place is great. The Chirashi is gigantic, as evident by many of the pictures available on this site and other review sites. It's a bit pricey, but the portion sizes are comically large and it's very fresh. They add 'extra' flavorings and textural things to the chirashi that doesn't exist in more traditional japanese settings. The service can be... More

A medium size restaurant tucked in a quiet residential/warehouse district of Hacienda Heights popular with the locals, has the BIGGEST Chirashi in Los Angeles County. Fresh sea urchin, yellow tail, tuna, unago, scallops, salmon, sweet shrimp, tako, and three different kinds of fish roe all on a generous bed of seasoned sushi rice. The chirashi is $40 per order, but... More

Ate @ Akasaka with hubby, daughter, and son for celebration. Ordered Bento Box for everyone with different combo. Ordered extra sushi for side dish. Loved the Bento Box ! Generous portion and really satisfying meal. Total bill for 4 only came to $60!

We sat at the sushi bar (which is small...seats up to 9 people--but they DO take reservations for the sushi bar). They brought us edimome, tempura fried peppers, and a spicy tuna tempura for appetizers....free, I believe. (I didn't pay for dinner.) The rolls are huge. Yellow tail sushi is the best. Pieces of sushi/sashimi are huge. I guess my... More
