Good food, odd atmosphere

Akashi has arguably the best tasting sushi in dayton. I've never had any complaints over the sushi, miso soup, or salad, although of the three the salad is the weakest. The problem with akashi is the price, which is a little more expensive than the bargain sushi places, and the atmosphere... read more

Was traveling and needed a Japanese fix. Looked up a few places and ended up at Akashi. Best decision you can make. It has the feel of a restaurant in Japan. Television with Japanese tv and the music was also authentic although more Japanese pop than traditional. I had the seafood tempura for an appetizer and it was a great... More

Although I went for the Japanese food I ended up having bibimbap which was delicious. I was dissuaded from ordering the sushi (my original intent) because the orders were one piece instead of two per order, to me, a sure sign of lack of authenticity. Sorry.

I went there for lunch today. I have always lived very close and drove by multiple times, I just have never stopped in. When I went in there wasn't any signs or anything on where to go for carryout, but a nice waitress gave me a menu and took my order. I got the sushi lunch. Plentiful and fresh. Very... More

This is a very enjoyable Japanese restaurant operated by a couple originally from Okinawa. Try the Okinawan beer! The sushi was as good as we've ever had outside of Noble Seafood in the Detroit area. The other dishes are creative and delicious.

This is a small little sushi bar with the best sushi. Daily specials are posted and the sushi bar is right in front where you can sit and watch them make your sushi. The variety is very good. The dinner menu is also good with appetizers, seafood, beef/pork and chicken offerings, noodle dinners and salad dinners as well. The offer... More

I suppose I am considered a regular at Akashi because I go several times a month. It's just THAT good. I try to change it up a bit every now and then, but seriously, I get the best thing on the menu and I want it every time... Firecracker sushi roll (NOM!!!), hand roll (they are only $1/person and totally... More

We have been here a couple times. First with just myself, my wife and our two little ones. Next time was with our extended family (about 9 of us). Typical of sushi restaurants around here with the timing of the food delivery. It's... random. We just assume it's always going to be this way and thus, take a few extra... More

This is my favorite place for sushi in Dayton. They also have a great amount of items on their non sushi menu. The staff is warm and welcoming and take good care of you. Nice selection of drinks too.
