“Best traditional sushi in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I try to come here as often as I can. There is no better sushi chef than Sano. The service is prompt, the fish tastes great and he is one of the only traditional japanese sushi chefs left. If you like your sushi, you can not miss this place! He does specials midweek. Do try!!

“Third Resturant In One Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

After church one Saturday around 5:30 pm, tried going to Henry Salazar's, moderately busy, but not bad, couldn't even get a waiter or watress to even acknoweledge our being there. Waited for about 8 minutes, made a comment that this was the second evening this has happened (we normally go for lunch every weekend) and walked out. Went next door to Fugazzis, same thing. Us and two other couples walked out. We went across the stress to Akamaru's, was greated immediately upon walking in, brought our drinks, took our order, and treated you like you were family. Kudos Akamaru, wonderful dinner. So much food for what we paid! Can't wait to go back.

Had vegetable tempura; very tasty. Other members of our party enjoyed their selections. Great value; no much atmosphere. Good location.

“OK if you must have sushi and rice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

As a Sushi lover who eats at Japanese restaurants 2 times a week, the restaurant is not on top of my list. Service is good and decor is nice. Fish quality is average. DINNER PORTION IS HUGE.

“Best sushi in Visalia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

I liked everything about this place.
Sushi was above expectation for midland.
Hawaiian roll was excellent choice for me.
Don’t ask for Oh-my-God roll unless you believe that jalapeños are sweet…
