“No sushi - left without dinner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Although the sushi is great, the service and wait is not. My husband and I went there for dinner. After waiting 90 minutes, we told them that we would just pay for our soups because we had to leave. The server told us that the owner and sushi chef do not make the sushi tickets in order. That makes sense since we counted four tables that came in after us that were served sushi. Then they tried to charge us for the sushi that we ordered, even though they still had not made it. The sushi at Big Eye may be good, but beyond disappointing. House of Hunan is right down the road. Beyond disappointed in Big Eye.

“Sushi with class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

My husband took me there when we first began dating. I'm critical of atmosphere and wasn't disappointed. The sushi presentation is great.
Of course it is bona fide; the chefs eat their own creations!

“Best sushi in Akron - Hidden treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Sushi is excellent and beautifully presented. Been here twice for lunch and it's never crowded. I don't think the sushi is overpriced like a previous review. Get a lunch or dinner special and you get the miso soup and salad along with your sushi for a decent price... We got 7 rolls, 5 regular and 2 speciality rolls for about $44 with the lunch special. We probably went overboard on the sushi but it was worth it! :)

“Very Good Sushi But One Problem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Fresh, tasty, artfully-presented sushi and sushi rolls. Best in Akron area as far as we can tell based on trying at least 5 others. However, we are frustrated by one item. Big Eye must have changed sources for their pickled ginger in late 2012. The current version is repulsive. The smell and taste is strongly chemical in nature and can spoil an otherwise excellent dining experience. We have commented to the staff but there has been no response so far.

“outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Full Japanese menu however we just ate sushi. Best sushi we ever ate and the rolls were huge!!! We normally order 7 rolls for 3 people and why couldn't finish a roll and a half because these were so big. Excellent atmosphere and great service. Highly recommend for sushi lovers
