We love this restaurant. We have been eating at this place for over 10 years. This restaurant uses excellent top quality seafood. Our favorites are Six Shooter and Dancing Eel rolls. If you prefer rolls without raw fish, Salmon Dynamite Roll is an excellent choice (That is not on the menu but they will make it on request). If you... More

My husband and our nephew would eat sushi for every meal. Me, not so much. But I do love other Asian dishes and Akaihana appeases us all. We've been going there since it was Mr Sushi, and while it's become wildly popular it's still good food at a good price. The boys tell me the sushi is fresh and flavorful.... More

We sat at the bar and had an awesome variety of sushi. The he'd was busy but a nice chap and food incredibly fresh and tasty. The waitress was too busy to refresh our drinks and we had to ask every time. But this should not take away from the quality of food and inexpensive too. Highly recommended!

My daughters had some yakisoba and soup. They loved it. The atmosphere was great except some bohemian next to us talking about how he used to work there and knows everything about Japanese food. Annoying. But that was just the bad part. Everything else was great.

Restaurant was pretty crowded when we arrived at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Families, couples, friends--it's a casual atmosphere, not quiet but not too noisy to talk easily. Menu has a reasonable selection of sushi (nigiri) and a huge selection of rolls. The prices seem average for a sushi restaurant but they're something of a bargain because the portions of both the...

Our recent visit to Akaihana was disappointing to say the least. While the service was impeccable and very friendly, the quality of the sushi this time around was lacking in both taste and freshness. In all fairness, the first visit was to the Goodyear location and they have set the standard. Not sure why there is such a difference at... More

While the place is okay, nothing special. :( Just okay rice, one of the more important parts of any sushi experience, and their wasabi is poor and watery. This is an okay place but there are better around.
