We love the sushi here and the service. This is a family owned Restaurant that is great to eat in and for take out.

After reading all the amazing reviews, I had my mouth watered for something special. I must say that I was a bit disappointed. The food was good, service was good, but I can't say it was any better than the other Japanese restaurants I have been to.

The restaurant itself is cramped and cannot seat a great number of people, which is a shame since the food is so exceptional and aesthetically pleasing but great if you want an intimate atmosphere. We recently had takeout and that too was of a high quality. This is the best Japanese restaurant in the Guilderland area and the prices are... More

Akanomi has great food and the owner's are super nice as well. I usually get Hibachi-which is delicious, but have also tried different types of Sushi there and it is delicious as well.

Akanomi is in a strip mall on Route 20. It's TINY - it maybe seats 15. They do a lot of take out business. But don't hesitate to go in! The food is fresh, cooked right there in front of you.

Wee have been to Akanomi many times, for lunch and dinner. It is a small, but friendly restaurant serving great bento boxes, hibachi, sushi and sashimi choices. Food is beautifully prepared and presented. Delicious!

This looks like just another strip-mall food joint... but walk in, sit down and order ANYTHING and you will be amazed at the taste, quality and presentation! This is not the place for a "food show". It is a place for fabulous food and quiet dining.

My teenage son and girlfriend started going there and always came home raving. It's a small little place in the strip mall and could be easily missed. Super friendly staff, nice menu variety, lovely presentation, and FRESH sushi. Always consistent in every way.
