Made a reservation, based on reviewers who said that the lines get long. The place is not really in a neighborhood where you would expect a restaurant. It's residential; the building was probably a house at some point. There is very limited seating, so I really would recommend a reservation. The fish was DELICIOUS! And the portions were really big,... More

Like all the Yelpers say, Akasaka Sushi Restaurant has a legendary chirashi bowl that competes with, and sometimes better than those you can find in Japan. I've had some of the freshest fish and chirashi bowls at tsukiji market in Tokyo, and have to say that Akasaka makes a mean chirashi bowl that rivals the best chirashi bowls in the... More

The freshest sashimi and great presentation. They recently had a remodel, added extra staff and service is quick. But the sushi is still the best!

Akasaka is located in a residential area, but that doesn't stop people from coming. I usually call ahead to make reservation or you will have to wait 30-45 minutes for a seat during rush hour. Their Chirashi bowl is HUGE. It is a little pricey, but it is definitely worth it. The fish is very fresh and one bowl is... More

This place is very popular, and it is always packed. If you don't want to wait an hour for your meal, then it is recommended that you make a reservation. When we first came here several years ago, this place gives you good value for your money as the sushi and sashimi were cut very thick. Gradually they raised the... More
