“Rice Bowl Take Out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

This was ok, but next time I will drive across town. I like the set up if the place, but service was far from receptive (maybe being solo and getting take out).

Restaurant had very strong smell of fish, but I guess that's expected since they serve sushi. This will probably be a one-timer for me.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Excellent service and the food is great! They are open late and it's just a short walk from the Marriott. Get the bento box!

“Best traditional sushi in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I try to come here as often as I can. There is no better sushi chef than Sano. The service is prompt, the fish tastes great and he is one of the only traditional japanese sushi chefs left. If you like your sushi, you can not miss this place! He does specials midweek. Do try!!

“Third Resturant In One Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

After church one Saturday around 5:30 pm, tried going to Henry Salazar's, moderately busy, but not bad, couldn't even get a waiter or watress to even acknoweledge our being there. Waited for about 8 minutes, made a comment that this was the second evening this has happened (we normally go for lunch every weekend) and walked out. Went next door to Fugazzis, same thing. Us and two other couples walked out. We went across the stress to Akamaru's, was greated immediately upon walking in, brought our drinks, took our order, and treated you like you were family. Kudos Akamaru, wonderful dinner. So much food for what we paid! Can't wait to go back.

Had vegetable tempura; very tasty. Other members of our party enjoyed their selections. Great value; no much atmosphere. Good location.
