Lunchtime at Akira

One of the largest sushi selections I've seen outside the West Coast. Many varieties and very fresh. Also a selection of Bento Boxes, Teriyaki and tempura.

This remains an excellent sushi hibachi restaurant! BYOB and 30% off Mondays and Tuesdays is just unbeatable. One recommendation to the restaurant is that they redo the restrooms making them brighter with better light new paint job and thereby being able to feel that they are clean. They may be clean it just doesn't feel good in the restroom.

I should have trusted my instinct and gone elsewhere. I acknowledge that we arrived at the height of dinner service on a Saturday night when it was very busy. However, that is not an excuse for the receptionist to ignore people in line, including those who had reservations that weren't being honored timely. We were told that there were no... More

This is a favorite of ours! The sushi is delicious, very fresh and creative. The Hibachi is fun and also fresh and delicious. We love that it is BYOB. Also on Mondays and Tuesday they have a 30% discount on sushi that is amazing!

A recent storm left us without power, and my daughters and I decided to order dinner from Akira, a Japanese restaurant near our house. I chose the clear soup with mushrooms and fried onions. It was light but tasty. I also ordered shrimp and crab stick sushi. Both were good. The ginger was its natural color (some places serve ginger... More

I liked it but it was a typical sushi place. Good and I would go again but it's nothing out of the ordinary. I ordered the avocado sushi roll and the miso soup. My friend got some sort of teriyaki thing. Their hibachi is pretty solid though!

I've been going to this restaurant since its opening- approximately once a month. Recently- they have taken to seating my five year old (and us) to the very side (and end) of an otherwise empty table. This time- when we went- and the hostess once again seated us as far away from the griddle as was possible- I complained. The... More

...I'm not going to say anything negative about the food. The food here is decent and quite honestly, the place is fun! However, my latest experience here left me feeling upset knowing that I probably won't go back. Myself and a bunch of my friends went here to celebrate a birthday. We made reservations, yet after we checked in, we... More

Excellent food...never had a bad dish. Ever. The ambiance is romantic but you can also hang with your friends and chat. I never felt rushed and the selections are awesome. Great place and decent prices. It's also a BYOB

As far as hibachi goes, food is average. Nothing bad about food. Nothing better than anywhere else. Ok let's go in. First, we had a reservation and were told when we arrived with our party of 10 that we could sit and buy apps until a hibachi table opened up as they did not save space for us. Our reservation...
