“Japanese Home Away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Delicious Japanese cuisine in a nice quiet ambiance. Traditional Japanese favorites are available. I lived in Japan for 1.5 years and whenever I feel homesick, I scurry on over there for some treats. My kids love it, my husband never complains, and the service is usually good. If you have a lot of little ones, request one of the small private rooms so you don't disturb other guests.They do close early which is the only detriment.

“My favorite sushi place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

This is one of my favorite local Japanese restaurants. We eat here about once a month. My family and I typically order both sushi and a dinner combination (teriyaki and tempura for my son). They use real crab here, so the rolls are delicious. They are also very family friendly, so my 4 year old son really likes coming here.

“Best Sushi in San Diego period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012 via mobile

If you have a craving for some fine Asian cuisine then Akai Hana is a place you should definitely try. The sushi is delectable and the service is awesome. I've had pretty much everyrhing on the menu and now when i go I just tell the sushi what make me whatever you want and I'm never disappointed. No pressure roll rocks!
