I've been a frequent diner at this restaurant for years. Fresh ingredients, nice presentations, decent sake list. You can't even really see it from the road, but drive to the rear of this strip center and be prepared for a feast.

This spot is a bit out of the way, but it is worth the trip. Large bar for seating. Nothing left to say, but need 100 characters

I was very disappointed with the service. It took her 10 mins to greet us, Then another 10 to bring us back our drinks. The eel sauce seemed to be watered down. But idk I'm willing to give everywhere a second shot.

This restaurant was not quite finished yet but they are serving customers on one side of it, at least when I was there. It is a good size restaurant with a sushi bar that sits high. There were four sushi chefs working that day. I am always amazed how different even the simplest dish can be different from another sushi... More

We love this restaurant. We have been eating at this place for over 10 years. This restaurant uses excellent top quality seafood. Our favorites are Six Shooter and Dancing Eel rolls. If you prefer rolls without raw fish, Salmon Dynamite Roll is an excellent choice (That is not on the menu but they will make it on request). If you... More

My husband and our nephew would eat sushi for every meal. Me, not so much. But I do love other Asian dishes and Akaihana appeases us all. We've been going there since it was Mr Sushi, and while it's become wildly popular it's still good food at a good price. The boys tell me the sushi is fresh and flavorful.... More

We sat at the bar and had an awesome variety of sushi. The he'd was busy but a nice chap and food incredibly fresh and tasty. The waitress was too busy to refresh our drinks and we had to ask every time. But this should not take away from the quality of food and inexpensive too. Highly recommended!
