“I've been back: even worse!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Worse than the last time: too much rice! If you order a nigiri sushi you will get a huge ball of mouth-stuffing rice, with a normal slice of fish on it. If you are hungry and just want to fill your stomach this is your place, and it is cheap, too: with a pair of sake nigiri you'll have a complete lunch. But eating good sushi is something different.

“Too much rice!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Akita is a good japanese restaurant, we go there very often. It looks cleaner than the other many japanese in the same area, and the service is fast. Recently, though, the nigiri sushi is almost impossible to eat: the size of the fish on the nigiri has remained the same, but the ball of rice underneath has grown too large. The rice is also often very fridge-cold.

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2010

We were shopping for a restaurant near our hotel and found we were in the middle of a high concentration of Asian eateries. So, we picked Akita because it had the most people in it. We were not disappointed with our choice. The saki was good, the tempura was really good. The staff were quick and efficient. We even liked the ambiance. Again, yummy!
