“Great Fresh Sushi”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

We love Aka sushi! Great place to get freshly made to order sushi. Mo and his staff are very friendly. We just ordered a platter of sushi for a small family gathering and everyone loved it.

“Best sushi EVER!”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

So my boyfriend and I are from the big island, about 4 years ago we discovered Aka hidden inside of kamuela deli...our first thoughts before eating there weren't so good, only because kamuela deli was one of Waimea's worst diners.Thankfully we sucked it up and tried Aka's...holy &*%$!!! I don't know what they do to their sushi but we were instantly hooked and would eat there at least 4 or 5 times a week.
Then about 3 years ago we moved to Santa Cruz and have yet to find sushi that comes even close to Aka's but everytime we go back that's the first place we go and when our friends or family go back we make them bring us back sushi on the airplane, infact the last time we had Aka's was about 2 weeks ago when my boyfriends mother came back from Hawaii and brought us sushi we waited until 12 at night for her to get home...best midnight snack ever.
The couple that run the place are an amazing young couple, always smiling and sooo talented! If you go there you have to get the aka roll for sure and the cali is to die for.

“Phenomenal”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

My husband and I are sushi connoisseurs and we were blown away by this place. In our two week stay we ate here 6 times. We dinned at all the best restaurants on the island and thought that this place was hands down the best meal on the island. It's not much for ambiance, but if you are looking for sushi that tasted like it was caught hours before, this is your place. We still have dreams about the yellowtail sashimi and hope to come back for it one day. We are world travelers and aside from Japan, we have never had sushi this good.

“Four Stars”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Their rolls were excellent because the sushi chef piled on lots of tuna, unagi, salmon and yellowtail. This is an up-and-coming place that the locals know is a great place to eat. It surely beats the tourist spots on the westside resorts.
