We now go once a week.. This place gets better and better. Sushi is fresh and delicious... Spicy tuna is a great value... Hibachi shrimp is awesome.. Lisa the owner is totally hands on. Forget the others in the area....

Akira ll is one of our favorite go-to restaurants in Moorestown. We eat in the front and we eat in the back at the hibachie tables. (You can order hibachie at the tables in the front.) They have a private hibachie room. The sushi, sashimi and seafood rolls are all fresh and delicious as are the soups and salads. We've... More

Yesterday was my first visit, I will go back! I had the walnut shrimp appetizer; different but very tasty! Then a bit long of a wait for my Chicken Udon soup but I know why; they had to make it hot as hell... Once it cooled enough to eat it was incredible but WOW was it sizzling in the bowl!

The parking in the rear of the restaurant is hard to find and small, but there is also meter parking on the street. The restaurant itself inside is small not many tables in the front for menu service, and small area in back for the Hibachi style dinning. All in all it was a nice experience and the food and...

Easily as good as Benihana - maybe better. One of the best and most talented chefs ever. Highly recommended.

Terrific service and fantastic sushi! Not only is Akira the best sushi restaurant in S. Jersey but the best BYOB. Our favorites are the Daisy Roll, Chris Roll and Surprise Roll. Also love their king salmon sashimi. Friendly staff makes it truly an enjoyable experience.

We made a reservation for my daughter's birthday dinner. At first we were very pleased with the atmosphere..we were basically in a private room. The restaurant was semi-crowded at 5:30 pm. Our server was rushed and not very personal. We ordered several types of sushi as an appetizer. One person of our party ordered sushi for his entree. Within minutes... More

The food was good not great but there was a giant service issue. We had a large party, about 1/2 ordered Sushi half hibachi dinners. Apparently there was a glitch with the order which ended up with the Sushi folks being finished eating before the others had starters. The server apologized but after the first time should have realized that... More

We had a large party of 15 for Sat pm. I had given the restaurant ample notice we would need a hibachi table for our large party with 4 younger kids. It was a real cluster. Our table was NOT NEAR READY when we arrived promptly. It was a 40 minute wait. Why give us a reservation at all? Food... More
