Went here last Thursday with a group of friends. Huge selection of sashimi and sushi rolls, as well as regular dinners. My husband doesn't eat sushi so he got the Mongolian Beef and loved it. Huge serving, too. 50% off drinks while we were there, too. Ate outside and could hear music from a close restaurant. Lots of fun!

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon, off peak hours. Nice warm Carolina afternoon.
Greeted nicely by host. Had option to dine outdoors under canopy. Chose indoors.
Waitress took time to explain specials. They had stir fry noodles and 2 for 1 sushi. Vegetable versions too.
We opened with stir fry noodles with scallions and shrimp. VERY GOOD!! Wonderful think fat noodles.
Next had 2 for 1 sushi. Sunset rolls and Charlotte rolls. UUmmmmm...
Sunset Roll (6 pcs) $14.00
Smoked salmon, tuna, avocado, cream cheese and panko, flash-fried
and topped with eel sauce
Charlotte Roll (8 pcs) $16.00
Shrimp tempura and cream cheese, topped with avocado and tuna,
finished with crab salad mixed with scallions, spicy sauce and mayo

Beverages iced tea with lemon.

Got to enjoy viewing what other patrons were having. Several with HUGE bowls of soup and beef.

At time we were there, wait staff was prepping for evening rush.

Good value. Enjoyable. Comfortable atmosphere.

This is a hidden treasure. Staff seem to be always cheery and smiling, the food fresh and tasty, we totally LOVE the sushi and edamame is nice, salty and fresh ... it is better than majority of the 'raved' about sushi places in Charlotte. The have a good Saki menu, for us saki lovers this is a bonus and Saporo on tap is a big gold star.
Outdoor dining on the terrace is great, it is just too cold for us inside (we are not a/c fans!)
Watch the board for the daily specials, like half price such rolls, or cocktails. Or for a lazy night in ... call ahead and get some fabulous food to take-home.
If you like your sushi then don't miss Akahana !!

You really need to try Akahana and in fact we need to go back to eventually try the whole menu. This is a great place for family or a couple. Previously, I rated an Asian restaurant on sushi and I must apologize for my lack of understanding.

Try the Ahi Hawaiin roll and the Sakura Drop Roll. We talked with the co owner while there and he is a great chef ad enjoys discussing his art. Next trip, we try the Pho ... new to me this is a soup and it comes from his Grandmother's recipe and takes hours to cook.

I work in the same area, so I eat lunch here quick frequently. I absolutely love the Spiral Ecstasy roll! Also get the hurricane roll. Can't beat their lunch special - buy one get one free sushi!
