The sushi is always fresh at downtown location. Boyd comes up with very creative rolls and appetizers that aren't found elsewhere. We enjoy sitting at the sushi bar and chatting with him.

Hibachi time...Our Hibachi cook was white and wasn't entertaining except, when he did say something he used an Asian accent. Lol Mu husbands steak had 8 pieces of fat, you know how the... More

This place was the highlight of my trip to Corpus. I'm not a connoisseur or anything but I eat it regularly and this was some of the best.

Living in Austin, Vegetarian Sushi is a known concept. Aka, has 3 vegetarian rolls on the menu, which are not at all great The noodle dish we ordered was with Tofu but kind of smelled like fish (fish oil). The Service is average. I liked the location and the ambiance. Good Saki.

Have been here several times. 90% of the time the sushi is excellent, fresh and delicious! There have been a couple of times, however that the sushi was terrible, warm and slimy. Pretty disgusting. Must have been an off day.... it was excellent before so I gave them another chance. Bento box for lunch is very good and filling.

My husband and I made a poor decision to eat a Valentines Lunch at AKA. We arrived at 11:45 to a 3/4 full restaurant with everyone waiting on food. It took 15 min to get our order taken and to receive some iced tea. The sushi menu no longer had our favorite rolls so we asked the waitress if we... More

We were sat down and told since it was Valentines Day, they had no happy hour. We got up and left. Sounds to me like they were trying to take advantage of their regular customers, not happy about it. I responded to their website but have yet to hear something back from them. May not ever return....
