“Quality family-owned Japanese restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

This is a wonderful small place which we've used for carry out dining for several years. The sushi is very tasty and portions are generous. Favorites include a delicious soft shell crab roll and excellent shrimp tempura rolls. Another great item is the teriyaki beef and rice, although we noticed on this visit that the portions were a bit smaller than usual. Finally, their ginger dressing for the lettuce salad is some of the best anywhere. Can't comment on dining in but the interior is very clean and well kept.

“Friendliest, best sushi place in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is the ONLY place we want to go for Sushi and we've tried them all. The owners and wait staff and cooks are so friendly we feel like they are family welcoming us home. Food is outstanding and reasonably priced. We had them make a couple platters of sushi for a party, and they were amazing - beautifully displayed and so tasty they were all gone in a flash. We go here nearly every week and always feel well attended to, well fed, and happy.

“A great choice for sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

We eat at Akagi often. The place is quite small and unpretentious, but the food is reliably good and fresh, the prices are very reasonable and the service is always fast and friendly. The menu is not highly adventurous, but If you want something straightforward in the way of sushi, tempura or other Japanese basics, look no further. The California rolls are as good as they get, and maybe try the ginger ice cream for a Western finish.

“Always good and very inexpensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

Very good food and well prepared by a lovely family that is always on site. A little store front with no atmosphere, but you can't eat atmosphere!
