We go to Akira! The decorations are like bad 80's but the sushi is some of the best I've ever had from coast to coast. I highly recommend the Butterfly Kisses from the appetizer menu and the Salmon Zest and Cherry Blossom rolls from the sushi rolls menu. Always stellar food and service. Ask to sit in David's section for a little extra entertainment. He's incredibly enjoyable.

Very nice and welcoming restaurant for us out of towners! The place is up class making it a very sociable environment to enjoy sushi/hibachi on a date or with friends. The sushi is out of this world amazing! Got the Vegas roll, rocky and cherry blossom rolls! Hands down the best and fresh sushi rolls we have had! Prices are reasonable and we were pleased with our bill for all the food we had! Didn't do the hibachi but it looked as if it would be enjoyable with the nice leather chairs and flat screens. Hibachi is in a separate room however you could still see through the windows. Will definitely be coming back to this place if we are in town again!

The fact that the owners are present each visit and make it a point to say hello goes a long way. They have a few awesome bartenders who recall my preferences and serve new renditions each visit. The sushi chef trained in Japan and takes great care to present beautiful and delicious plates encouraging guests to try something didn't. Never disappoints. A favorite spot for dining with friends or alone.

Definitely stop in here if you love hibachi or sushi!!!!!! We stopped in to check it out for our daughters birthday! Very nice looking place inside. Staff was very fun and friendly, they went above and beyond to accommodate. Ozzie was our hibachi chef and I must say we will be back! Prices went bad here either!

The owners spared no expense in the remodel. Chandeliers, fish tanks, large leather seating, 4 hibachi tables including a huge 12 seater are some of the things coming to mind.
We stopped in for a hibachi dinner one friday night in December. My first observation once seated was the position of every hibachi table were all facing the wrong way. Every seat faces a blank white wall. Wouldnt it make more sense for everyone to face into the beautiful room and feel and see the energy of all the entertaining hibachi chefs?
I ordered a martini and the server had no clue what gin, vermouth or anything was. Im still not sure if I really drank what I paid for because it was one of the worst drinks ever.
Comparing to the established hibachi restaurants nearby, the salad, noodles and rice were equally as good. You do have to pay extra for the noodles and rice. For some odd reason, instead of cooking the steak with soy sauce, they use eel sauce? We didnt care for it at all and will be the reason we will not return- for hibachi anyway.
