“Gourmet Sushi served in a whole in the wall.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

This place is a must. I live in Miami but make sure I eat at Akira each time I am in Vancouver. The spicy rolls with black rice are fantastic. Sashimi is delicate and delicious and the spinach gomey is the best anywhere. All at a very low price. It is a very basic atmosphere but the food is fantastic.

“fantastic service, delicious fresh sushi, yummy black rice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Great find, casual, clean, friendly, small, neighborhood place with above average sushi and great prices. Loved the rainbow roll and black rice california rolls. The gyoza were so nice and crispy, and the wrapper was so fresh it may have been homemade. Great service, our green tea was never empty and always delivered without prompting with a smile, thanks ladies.

“My local sushi joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2011

Inexpensive good quality sushi is a Vancouver birthright: it's the local equivalent of fast food.

Akira's is cash only and not 5 star, but it's great value and vey good quality. Boxes are especially good deals.

“Great Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2011

Went there a few times because I really liked the sushi they offered...and the fair prices. Of coursde...its a small place and definetly lacks atmosphere. However the fish is fresh and tasty and you can ´fill youre stomach with perfect sushi....and still won´t have to pay much....by some locals referred to as best sushi place on denman.
