“Good Japanese Food!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stopped by the Akebono Japanese Restaurant while out shopping in the Roseville, CA area and found it to be good. We had chirashi, which was very good and salmon, which was a bit dry. This restaurant has another location in Sacramento that is much better.

“Worst sushi I have ever had”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Thank heaven I had a $ off coupon. It was the worst sushi I have ever had. I ordered the "Z Roll" (prawn inside,tuna and crab outside). It was almost tasteless, and so dry that I asked for sauce. They offered teriyaki (what???) or "the mayonnaise sauce", which was terrible. The roll was smaller than most and it was $11.95. The bento box with tempura and spicy beef was OK, but reminded me more of Korean food (which is perfectly fine, but not what I expected). I won't be back. Very disappointing.

“Good No Frills Sushi Spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2011

If you're looking for a sushi place that has good offerings without the super-trendy atmosphere, Akebono is a good choice. We popped in for a quick lunch and nabbed an Ichiro and Akebono roll off the menu. Both rolls were awesome and the service was prompt. The ambiance isn't anything too noteworthy (not particularly enticing) but the area isn't exactly the place to go if you're looking for nightlife! Decent sized rolls and pretty average pricing for sushi.
