If you are not impressed with fancy locales and want solid taste and structure, visit this restaurant. For a place that is far from the ocean, the freshness of the offerings is of very high standard. Lunch doesn't include their full menu but even the partial menu has many wonderful dishes. The all you can eat format allows you to... More

Pleasant surrounding and comfortable seating for the restaurant itself. Ate too much had to go for a nice stroll along the beautiful lake shore that's only 2 minutes walk away with families. Living the good life!!

The sushi here is quite good -- definitely the best in Barrie. Service in sushi places is usually pretty awful but I've had mostly good experiences at Akira.

We eat here quite regularly and really love eating here as a family. It's more reasonable as a family to eat for lunch as opposed to dinner, but not the same selection is available. The service is always fabulous here and if you take the time to chat with staff, they are amazing and always friendly and willing to help.... More

I'm reading a lot of reviews about bad service, however, we had a very pleasant and attentive server. It seems as though I'm the only one who is very dissatisfied with the quality of food. We had the lunch all you can eat menu. The spicy salmon tasted more like mayonnaise than anything else, it was runny. The tuna and... More

Used to be one of my favourite places to eat in Barrie, their AK-47 are fantastic. Unfortunately lately it has been hit and miss, not sure if they hired new staff who are still learning but the quality and taste of the sushi was not what I was used to from them

Just finished having a great meal at Akira in Barrie. The restaurant is large, nicely decorated and clean. The menu is very large and everything we ordered was very good. Rolls are loaded and a bit of a challenge to eat without making a mess! The M16 and AK47 rolls are my favourite - they are cooked rolls and are... More

There was nothing wrong with the food, but nothing really stood out or was special. Service was attentive enough which was great. The location on the second floor has nice windows. Make sure you come with an appetite to get best value. Having been to Japan, it is "Canadian-Japanese."
