We splurged and dropped almost $100 for the two of us. We had 3 or 4 of their special rolls in addition to a few of the basic rolls. Everything was fresh. Some of the rolls were very creative and unique.

The service was good and the music was even better. They had music if the 60's 70's and 80's.

Great music and excellent sushi. It doesn't get much better!

We have been a few times and like Akai. Modern food is unique and fresh. All the appetizers were great. Service is pleasant.

Stopped by on a Monday night and the restaurant was busy. We ordered shumai and gyoza for appetizers which were very tasty. Between the two of us, we ordered four different rolls. They were very generous in size but would have expected the spicy rolls to have more of a kick. The ingredients tasted fresh and rolls nicely presented. Service was very attentive. They brought us the wrong check at the end of the meal but it was quickly corrected. Nice casual restaurant but a little pricey.

Akai was a delight. The service and the food were excellent . There was a good variety of choices. I ordered the Chirashi and the selection of fish was perfect. On warm days there are tables set up outside. Check Akai out if you're in Westfield, New Jersey.

We ate lunch and were pleasantly surprised to find a Restaurant week pricing menu. Three courses, $12. I started with a salad with a ginger dressing, very fresh greens and best ginger dressing I have had. Wife had Miso soup and said it was delicious. We both had the shrimp shumai for 2nd course. Very delicious with a very tasting dipping sauce. For the third course, a spicy salmon roll topped with tuna, excellent and very filling. Wife went for the sweet potato tempura roll with a fish filling. Large portion, also very delicious. All ingredients very fresh, very tasty and fairly priced. Don't know what it would have been at regular menu prices. This was our second visit and we were very pleased both times. If it were closer to me, I would be a regular. The first time there was also lunch and we found the pricing very fair for the quality, freshness, taste and service.
