Akane Japanese Restaurant sushi bar was sublime. The fish was fresh and expertly prepared. All of the sushi was excellent with the only B rated dish being he red snapper. It was a bit tough to chew. One the other hand the Aji and the Toro were absolutely incredible. I’ve been eating sushi for some 34 years and have become... More

I went there with a very good friend who picked up this restaurant thinking it will be the best....At first, we had a very good contact with the server, very welcoming and nice. He helped us to choose in the menu. Even if the room was 'cold' we felt good after a green tea. We both ordered the Assorted Sashimi... More

The restaurant is tucked in Los Altos neighborhood. When our family have a small group gathering, we like to come to Akanes for dinner. There is an extensive menu to satisfy each of us. Some prefer sashimi, others sushi, and yet others tempura or donburi. Ingredients are fresh, well prepared and nicely presented.

All sushi is extremely fresh and beautifully presented. Sukiyaki is also a great dish for a hot hearty meal. Tuna tartar appetizer is a favorite of ours. Menu also has some very traditional Japanese dishes done authentically.

I have gone to this restaurant a few times in the past few months. Good food, excellent pleasant service and long lines to get in. Not much fancy about the place and it is a little dim inside but the food makes up for the lighting issues. Was there last week and when we needed just two more dishes after... More

I have always enjoyed having a quiet lunch or dinner at Akanes. Their menu is extensive, and the wait staff are pleasant and efficient. The quality and portions are reasonably generous for the price. Mostly I order lunch specials with nigiri and teriyaki, or a similar option for dinner. Chirashi is also a good choice. I have also enjoyed going... More

Normal sushi place...nothing fancy. Not a great selection. My lunch partner had sashimi...she enjoyed it. Quick lunch place...nothing more....wouldn't go out of my way to go there. I'm sure there are much better places in the area.

Akane is my families Go-to restaurant anytime we feel the need for a little something special. They really know how to make sushi. This is a make to order restaurant not a fast food or mass production. The quality is high on all of the ingredients and the prices reflect that. We all love sushi and have it often even... More

Akane is a small nice Japanese restaurant in the downtown area of Los Altos, California. I go there often for their fresh sushi and yoshi nabe (soup with seafood, chicken, tofu and vegetable). Their price however has gone up in the last few years and is higher than other Japanese restaurants in neighbor city such as Mountain View. Customers may... More
