Over price Japanese food! Somehow the taste is different than before. The food portion is smaller than before. I don't think it is worth for what I pay. The fish bowl charged $35.00 plus. It is just way too much.

My favorite thing about my entire eating experience was the rice. I HATE rice. But this rice, with the little tempura flake mix ins, or whatever that crunchy goodness was, was like crack, and I could not stop eating it. I went here for a cousins dinner, and fought my way to find parking in their modest lot. There's also... More

Made a reservation, based on reviewers who said that the lines get long. The place is not really in a neighborhood where you would expect a restaurant. It's residential; the building was probably a house at some point. There is very limited seating, so I really would recommend a reservation. The fish was DELICIOUS! And the portions were really big,... More

Like all the Yelpers say, Akasaka Sushi Restaurant has a legendary chirashi bowl that competes with, and sometimes better than those you can find in Japan. I've had some of the freshest fish and chirashi bowls at tsukiji market in Tokyo, and have to say that Akasaka makes a mean chirashi bowl that rivals the best chirashi bowls in the... More

The freshest sashimi and great presentation. They recently had a remodel, added extra staff and service is quick. But the sushi is still the best!

Akasaka is located in a residential area, but that doesn't stop people from coming. I usually call ahead to make reservation or you will have to wait 30-45 minutes for a seat during rush hour. Their Chirashi bowl is HUGE. It is a little pricey, but it is definitely worth it. The fish is very fresh and one bowl is... More

Unlike traditional Japanese restaurant, this place is well known for its jumbo portion. Huge Chirashi bowl, sushi rolls.
