This is top notch casual dining. We happened to visit at the right time. Between 5pm and 6 pm mon-Thurs. They have a list of commonly ordered rolls that are regularly $5 - $6 , but are half price for this one hour. Don't over order though... they will charge full price for food to take home. We have made... More

This is wonderful Japanese food!! We explored a wide range of dishes: deluxe sashimi, lobster bisque, drunken noodles, pineapple fried rice - and exquisite desserts!!! We'll be back again soon!

Not terrible, but not very good either. Overpriced for quality. As another review mentioned, rolls are large compared to other sushi joints. It's because they use extra rice, which makes it harder to taste the other ingredients. Sakura, a few miles away, is much better; similar price point but better quality.

Was told they offer half off rolls during "happy hour," but found no information online and did not see anything posted upon arrival. However, the Maki Dinner for Two was a pleasant surprise: two miso soups, two small salads, and choice of four regular/Maki rolls for about $20. No speciality rolls available in this option but a pretty wide, if... More

Whenever I travel I always try and find the local sushi place for at least one meal. Trip Advisor indicated that this was one of the better joints in the Akron area so my travelling partner and I gave it a shot. Standard décor for a repurposed warehouse building. One-sided booths on one wall, tables in the middle, and a... More

This is not an authentic Japanese restaurant but the meals are decent. I prefer their sushi better than cooked Japanese plates.

Big Eye Sushi may be the best sushi restaurant in Akron. That being said, it's good but not that good. I go there when I want sushi and have tried other local sushi restaurants. Big Eye is fine. It's clean and the service is good. All pluses.

This has been my favorite sushi restaurant since they opened years ago! They have the freshest food which is also much more authentic than other places in Akron. I love the intimate setting and the diversity of the menu. I get the Sashimi Deluxe every time and have never been disappointed! Go now!!!

Our friends are getting married and planned to have Big Eye provide Sushi as a part of the food at their reception. We went to Big Eye to try things out and had a delightful time enjoying the sushi and sake. The restaurant is not big, but is comfortable and the waitress was very helpful in working with us to...

Although the sushi is great, the service and wait is not. My husband and I went there for dinner. After waiting 90 minutes, we told them that we would just pay for our soups because we had to leave. The server told us that the owner and sushi chef do not make the sushi tickets in order. That makes sense... More
