I eat here all the time. Their Akagi roll and fried crab are exellent. A small family run restruant kind of hidden away, but great food and service. I would have lunch there every day if I could.

I have been going to Akagi Japanese Restaurant for over 11 years. I usually eat there 2-3 times per week and have tried most items on the menu. I have had Japanese food all over the U.S. and Japan and there is not a place that offers the best combination of great food, fantastic service and reasonable prices as that... More

Stopped here today for lunch. Was hungry so ordered the luncheon special teriyaki chicken. It was wonderful. Served with salad, rice and cold noodles. The staff were great friendly and exceedingly helpful and concerned. Price was very reasonable. In a small strip mall one block off Marsh Road with several other restaurants and businesses. Cannot wait to go back.

The sushi was pretty good and the value was ok. The service was a bit strange. Our server prepared one dish at a time. My soup came first... then my wife's bento box... then the appetizer.... and finally, my sushi set entree. There was about five to ten minutes between the start of service till the last dish was served.... More

Family run, very good food. Not my first choice for Sushi but it's good if you want a roll with your dinner. Very friendly and inviting atmosphere, they will remember your face if you go once a month.

We love taking the family to Akagi, where we are always warmly welcomed. Both kids and adults find plenty of delicious choices, though we normally choose the homestyle offerings over sushi or maki. We like the dumplings, shumai, potato croquettes (new menu item!), noodle dishes and soups. This is a family restaurant that makes you feel like family too!

From the time I walked in until the time I left, the service was exceptional. My sashimi appetizer was really good as well. Now that's all I had but I cannot wait to go back!

This is a wonderful small place which we've used for carry out dining for several years. The sushi is very tasty and portions are generous. Favorites include a delicious soft shell crab roll and excellent shrimp tempura rolls. Another great item is the teriyaki beef and rice, although we noticed on this visit that the portions were a bit smaller... More

This is the ONLY place we want to go for Sushi and we've tried them all. The owners and wait staff and cooks are so friendly we feel like they are family welcoming us home. Food is outstanding and reasonably priced. We had them make a couple platters of sushi for a party, and they were amazing - beautifully displayed... More
