This is my favorite sushi spot when I visit Danville. Good sized rolls with generous portions. Prices are high on some rolls but frankly you get what you pay for. If there is a high price chances are it is decked out with great design...More

Been here several times, most recently for lunch. Sushi bar is good. Lunch outdoors was okay. Place is clean with prompt service.

We eat at Akira quite often, and it's always Very good. The Sushi is very fresh, and the teriyaki is always good. Of all the Japanese Restaurants in the area, in my book, it's the Best!
