“Great Sushi”
Reviewed September 8, 2009

The best part about Akida is the huge variety of creative rolls. We ordered 4 rolls to share and all were spectacular. Basic rolls were about $6-8 and specialty rolls $10-12. The sweet potato tempura was unfortunately greasy but all the sushi was delicious. The atmosphere is also great, but it is small so don't go at peak times or be prepared to wait. Average service - adequate but nothing special.

“Best Sushi in area for years- by far!”
Reviewed October 13, 2008

We have been regular customers of Akida since they opened years ago- often once a week- and have yet to have an experience that does not rate as excellent. The consistency of freshness, quality, presentation- as well as the excellent service- same two waitresses since the beginning! We have introduced many of it's now "regulars" to Akida. Whenever we try another Sushi restaurant in the area or when traveling, we always compare it to Akida, and so far, none has reached quite as high a rating for us.
