Love the sushi and teriyaki, so fresh and tasty. The wasabi and ginger were among the best I have ever had. Mango Tango was awesome.

Extremely slow service at lunch. The wait staff was rude and I had to get up several times to get silverware, a refill and condiments. The food was mediocre.

Fabulous! Lobster Dynamite will not disappoint. Kay is the best and Boyd is the best chef. Heck, the whole staff is super friendly and great service

We thought we would try a different sushi place that we had never been too. We were a little disappointed. Felt like it was smaller portions, same or higher prices than others. Nice atmosphere but would recommend other sushi places in town over this one.

Yup, I over ate again. Boyd out did himself. We brought some friends that never had sushi and instantly made converts. We had their Avocado Bomb (Avocado stuffed with Soft Shell crab cooked to crispy perfection) and The Lobster Volcano (Lobster and crab roll covered in Lobster and Crab in a delectable sauce. Excellent service and we left with the... More

A wonderful gem to discover in downtown Corpus Christi! Everything was great, but the seaweed salad and Texas Thunder Roll were amazing.

This place was recommended by the hotel staff where we were staying at. Everything was ok..(but not great) until I found a roach in my food. Decided to just pay and leave to avoid the embarrassment

Everything was great here, the seating was uncrowded meaning we weren't stacked on top of each other. It is a relatively small place to dine. The wait staff were on top of their game and we didn't have to wait long for anything. We placed a large order off the card and was served beautiful fresh sushi. They offered fresh... More

Have been eating at Aka for a number of years. This place hands down offers the best sushi in town. Rolando, Stephanie and Tonio go above and beyond in creating rolls for the guests. Hibachi food is good however, sushi bar is my fave. Their personalized service compliments the food nicely. Recommend the volcano roll and the tsunami roll. Portions... More
