I was strongly opposed to Sushi when my dad reccomended Akitas. The first time I went, I did not eat 'the sushi' but had some battered veggies and chicken teriaki. This place changed my whole perspective on sushi. It became my local favorite and I still reccommend it to everyone. Enjoy!

Pros: Assortment of Japanese food 4 every1 made by REAL CHEFS

Cons: Can get busy. There may be a 10 min wait. Closed Mondays.

Visited Akita for their advertised "all you can eat sushi" special. Found out they are 5 months into new ownership. The "all you can eat" menu is smaller than the regular sushi menu. And the ad should read "all you can eat rice" as they basically try to fill you up with rice. More than double the amount of rice on properly made sushi. As such, could not enjoy the meal as I almost gagged a number of times. You already have a 1 hour time limit and a reduced menu. They should at least make the sushi properly. This is not a "special" it is a SCAM.

I've seen this restaurant many times driving by but leery of sushi anywhere but the most upscale of places. After reading the earlier reviews I gave it a try and WOW! The place was packed. That alone was comforting. My husband, not a big japanese food fan, had a teriyaki chicken that was delicious. I fulfilled my sushi craving with 14 pieces of sushi bar sushi. It was excellent and can't wait to go back.

The Sushi bar is an excellent place to dine. Not only is the Sushi great but the chef's are very personable and fun to talk to. Their sushi rolls are very good and they have a big variety. My favorite is the 911 roll.

PROS: Great Sushi rolls and nice staff.
CONS: A popular spot and gets crowded early in the evening

Akita is possibly Escondido's best sushi and Japanese food. Order the sushi boat- it's enough food for four and a great deal! You can eat at a table that is on the floor too, which is kind of neat.
