“Good food our 1st visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

This was our first visit to Akita the place is always super busy so we usually go somewhere else and not wait. The food was good and they came around asking if it was good and if we needed anything else. Will return again.

“Love Japanese Food ... You'll LOVE Akita”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Akita Express is located in a former Dairy Queen site on the east side of Morristown. It's a short drive from the College Park Mall, Walters State Community College, and Wmart Shopping Center. Akita is located at the entrance to the Frank Lorino Park Complex with baseball, softball, and soccer fields. There's also a BMX track in the complex.

Our family favorites are Steak and Chicken, Chicken Teriyaki, and my personal favorite Shrimp and Scallops which are always freshly prepared on the grill and exactly to our liking. Be sure to try the Shrimp Sauce which is served with each meal along with plenty of rice. You'll have enough for a light lunch tomorrow if you take home the left overs from dinner. We LOVE the carrots, broccoli, and zucchini as meal accompaniments. You'll be surprised at how fast the food gets to the table. Everyone we know who has been to Akita loves the food.

Service is always quick and they have a drive-through window for those who in a hurry. The dining room is larger than you might expect upon arriving on the property. You will place your order at the cash register at the front of the establishment from a menu on the wall. Then just find your own table and the wait staff will bring your food. It took us a while to actually visit Akita for the first time, but now we're regular customers. Give it a try if you like Japanese grill.

“Best kept secret in Motown!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Very unassuming Japenese grill. Don't be fooled! Ordered the Terriaki Chicken with water. Was $8 even with tax and all. Was enough food for 2. Very fresh rice, chicken, and sweet carrots. You get 4 oz if shrimp sauce with your order. Believe I'll order that in lieu of water next time! The whole meal was a tremendous value. Staff was friendly, dining area clean & I'll definitely be back. Keep it up guys!
