Best in town for sushi

Have been eating at Aka for a number of years. This place hands down offers the best sushi in town. Rolando, Stephanie and Tonio go above and beyond in creating rolls for the guests. Hibachi food is good however, sushi bar is my fave. Their personalized service compliments the food nicely... read more

Everything was great here, the seating was uncrowded meaning we weren't stacked on top of each other. It is a relatively small place to dine. The wait staff were on top of their game and we didn't have to wait long for anything. We placed a large order off the card and was served beautiful fresh sushi. They offered fresh... More

The service at this establishment was absolutely wonderful. It was not crowded and our sushi and appetizer came out very quickly. However, the sushi was mediocre at best. We chose some interesting combinations and used Yelp and trip advisor for suggestions but was let down. The ecstasy roll was not true ecstasy and the volcano roll was not a volcano... More

Had some fantastic fresh sushi here with friends! The waitress was very friendly and extremely knowledgable. Had an amazing sampler plate and a delicious quail egg. Enjoyed the casual atmosphere and would definitely return.

Wow, amazing presentation of the Cabo St. Lucas! Vibrant, fresh, thin onion for depth that did NOT overpower the dish. The bed of dikon is thin, like angel hair pasta. The fish, yellowtail, is fresh and perfect. Thin avocado and jalapeno provide the perfect intensity and texture quality that really makes the dish. The textures work so well together... Your...

Came here with my wife for an early lunch one weekday afternoon. We were the first customers of the day and we had excellent and prompt service that lasted throughout as the restaurant filled. For starters we shared steamed pork dumplings and chicken teriyaki, and they were tasty and tender and highly enjoyable. Main courses we had one of the... More

went here with my family at 10:20 on a Saturday night and was told kitchen closed 6 minutes ago. Why post you are open till 10:30 if you shut the kitchen down at 10:14 especially on a Saturday night. We were very loyal customers, now we will never return.

A few things. Our party had a little 5 year old. The mom was informed she would be charged $7.00 for the child to sit in the seat at the grill, even though the mom would share a few bites with her off of mommy's plate. The child was not hungry like the adults were. The most inexpensive order off... More
