This was the worst Japanese food I have had in a long time. The yakisoba tasted more like some kind of peppered pasta. I could actually smell the bleach left on the miso soup bowl from being washed. I thought I was drinking swimming pool water. I lived in Japan for three years and I know Japanese food. I actually went to Akira with my Japanese friend, visiting here from Osaka. He and I were both shocked by the overpriced, tasteless food. His sukiyaki was unrecognizable, all he could bear to eat was the white rice. The service was just as bad as the food. The waitress was terribly rude and short with us. We couldn't find her after she served our food and had to ask the hostess for our check! I never make complaints like this online but this restaurant was so awful I knew I had to pass the word on. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE.

I love how they can cook the food in front of you and put on a good show. If not the sushi is awesome and they have a wide range of menu items that can fill anyones appetite. I definitely recommend checking out this place!

I was there with a group of my friends the other day and very unpleasant. We had reservations at 7:00 p.m and were all there 10 minutes early and still waited 20 extra minutes. Finally we all got seated in a table and it took 15 min. for our water, soda, and two beers to arrive. I saw that there were 5 severs but I guess only 1 server works at a time. The male servers speak good english but try talking to the other old hags and good luck communicating. Sushi and dinning dishes tasted bad and the chicken was RAW! I guess eating raw chicken is new fashion nowadays but I like it fully cooked. We should have eaten at the table but the food probably would have not enjoyed that either. They call themselves chefs? More like fake cooks thats what I see. Never Ever wasting my money and time here ever again.

the lack of an english-fluent staff definately takes away from the restaurant. the sushi is overpriced and unsatisfying. if the owner prepares your sushi then you'll find yourself shorted. seldom is the tappan well-prepared. aside from the food itself, the restaurant is clean and organized. it has a decent location and can get busy at times. dinner for 2 can bust your wallet (or purse) if caught off guard. however, overall dining experience can be pleasurable when the mood is right.

I love the sushi at Akira's and the service is very good. My favorite is the Las Vegas Roll you have to try it! They are very well priced and but they fill up fast, so get there early!!
